Classes can be used to classify transactions by department, location, type of product, type of business, color, or any type of category that is useful to filter by. When class tracking is enabled in Fishbowl, a class combo box will appear in several places throughout Fishbowl, including Sales Orders, Sales Order Items, Purchase Orders, Purchase Order Items, Manufacture Orders, Work Orders, Products, and Location Groups. Below are some examples of classes being displayed in Fishbowl.
