Purchase categories

Purchase items are assigned a purchase category.
To manage Purchase categories, select the Purchase categories option.
Purchase category. Enter a category description. Some examples include “Maintenance consumables”, “Electronic equipment”, “Paint supplies”, “Food and beverage”.
 
Consumable. A purchase item assigned a purchase category that is Consumable will be available for allocation onto maintenance and project schedules (e.g. paint would be a maintenance consumable).
 
Saleable (for bookings). A purchase item assigned a purchase category that is Saleable will be available for allocation onto bookings (e.g. soft drinks would be a saleable purchase item).
 
Purchase items can be Consumable and Saleable.
Do not check either of these options if the purchase items being assigned this category would not be allocated to bookings or schedules.
E.g. “Electronic equipment” you purchase for hire purposes.
 
Remove category. Categories currently assigned to active purchase items cannot be removed.
Re-instate. Removed categories can be re-instated.
