Starting with Goldenseal accounting software version 4.5, we are adding a new transaction-- Events.

An event generates income, and is midway between a Sale and a Project.

You can job cost expenses to a specific Event. However, you'll deposit the income from the Event, the same as you would for a Sale.

NOTE-- We are still fiddling with this new type of transaction, and there probably will be changes or enhancements over the next few updates. We will use them for our training classes, and also for accounting expenses and income for some volunteer work done by one of our employees.
