Set up grouping schedules

You can use grouping schedules to group similar accounts together for tax exports, reports and financial statements — available in a future release — and to calculate net income in the trial balance. You can add or modify an unlimited number of grouping schedules for your project.

  1. Open your project
  2. Select the Groupings tab.
  3. Choose a grouping schedule from the drop-down menu or create a new one. We recommend you use the default — Account Classification — which you can modify.
