The Toggle Features area allows you to change the look and feel of the system to suit your business by enabling, or disabling, features and functions.

For example, should you feel that you do not need the Fixed Assets feature, you can simply turn it off or if you need Multicurrency or Overseas VAT features you can turn them on.

Some features come toggled on by default so it's always worth a review of all the toggles to see which are necessary and which are not.

To view the features on the toggle features menu navigate to Settings > Configure system > Toggle features.

The Toggle Features menu has features organised into the 4 sections - Features, Invoicing & expenses, VAT & Bank import tool and Accounting.

All the features are listed below with a description of what they enable and a link to guides on how to use the feature in further detail. Tick the check box of any features you want to appear in your account, and untick the check box of any features that you don't want.

Please Note: Once toggled on, a hyper link will appear on some of the the feature names, clicking on this link will take you to the feature menu.
