DeskManager Online has over two-dozen expense categories when adding a cost to a vehicle. But if your dealership regularly incurs types of expenses that are not included by default, you can create and add your own expense categories as needed.
Creating a Custom Expense Category
First, click the Settings cogwheel located at the bottom of the leftmost sidebar. Under the Inventory category, select Custom Expense Category.
To create a custom expense category, click Add New.
Name this custom expense type.
Then indicate if this category is either an asset or an expense. This designation is important if you're using our QuickBooks integration.
Once done, click Save & Close in the top-left.
Assigning a Custom Expense Category
To add your custom expense, navigate to the details page of the vehicle that incurred it.
Then click Costs along the top banner.
Click New Cost.
When adding the details of this cost, click the Category dropdown and select your custom expense.
Once you add this expense, you’ll see your custom expense on the vehicle expenses summary page.
