If your company activity is mainly project-based or if you have several points of sale where you carry out your commercial activity, this functionality will be useful to you.

Labels help you to easily view all inflows and outflows associated with a particular project or point of sale. Unlike categories, you can associate the same label with both cash-ins and cash-outs.

In ThinkOut, a label contains three components:

  • name (for example, if you have an IT firm and work project-based, the label name can be the name of the project you are working on or the name of the client);

  • type (for example, if you are working on multiple projects for the same client, add the client name in the "Name" field and the project name in the "Type" field; if you work in the hospitality industry and have multiple business locations, add the city in the “Name” field and the neighborhood in the “Type” field);

  • color (this is chosen randomly - if you want to change it, you can do so from the Settings section, the Labels tab, click on the coloured circle next to the name or click on the Edit button).

You can easily add labels in a few steps either from:

  • Settings (where you manage your entire tag structure: you can edit tags, change the overall structure and delete old tags)

  • Transactions (where you can add the label type and label name directly to a newly added transaction as follows -> label type: label name; for example, if you have several development projects in one city, you can create the label London: Development Center 1)
