Labels - customising Zahara

Zahara comes with pre-set labels for things like GL code, Cost Code & Projects. You can rename these to suit. Head to Business > Settings> Labelling.

You will then see the following screen:


First off, when you make any changes to the labels, use Save as at the top and create a profile. Then make sure that profile is set. The plural of these are the menu items and the single are the line item values.
