Project Settings

Project Settings allow you to determine how Projects in KashFlow should work. This guidance elaborates on each setting and its function. Access these settings by going to Settings > Project Settings


Within this page, use the options to;

  • Enable Projects – Ticking this switches on projects
  • Name – Use this field to rename projects to something more relevant if required, this should be the singular form as it will be automatically pluralized – i.e. “Department” not “Departments”
  • Date 1 – Use this to define how a Start Date should be displayed – i.e. “Job Commencing”
  • Date 2 – Use this to define how a End Date should be displayed – i.e. “Job Ending Target”
  • Give me the option to associate a Project with a specific customer – Tick this to enable the option to assign specific customers to a project, you can then go to Customers > Select a customer > Options > Select Project.
  • Include a Work In Progress (WIP) calcuation on my Project pages – Ticking this allows you to use Work In Progress calculations on your projects.
  • Include the Project name on printed and emailed Invoices – Tick this box to show the project name on the invoice.
  • Let me assign Journal lines to Projects – Tick this to allow journals to be assigned to projects. When creating or editing a journal entry simply use the project drop down to assign it to a project.
  • Let me assign bank transactions to Projects – Tick this box to allow bank transactions to be directly assigned to Projects. Assign them when creating or editing a bank transaction using the Project drop down.
  • Let me assign individual lines of Invoices to different Projects. – By default you assign entire invoices and purchases to a project. Instead, you can chose to set individual line items to a project by ticking this box. There is an additional option for Purchases
  • Sort Order – By default your projects are sorted by project number, however to make it easier you can sort your project list by name of creation date
