Reporting Tags

As a growing business, you would have a rapidly expanding customer base spread across several domains and locations. So when you generate reports, it becomes hard and confusing to find details pertaining to a particular domain or location. Zoho Billing lets you associate tags known as Reporting Tags and filter all your reports based on the tags.

You will be able to associate reporting tags to Contacts, Items, Quotes, Sales Orders, Invoices, Recurring Invoices, Credit Notes, Expenses, Recurring Expenses, Purchase Orders, Bills, Recurring Bills, Vendor Credits and Journal entries.

Scenario: Jacob runs a travel and tourism agency and provides services around the globe. Jacob would like to generate profit or loss reports based on the most visited locations. Jacob immediately sets up reporting tags and filters his reports based on the tags to identify the most profitable locations and the best time of the year to visit them.
Note: This feature is available only for certain plans of Zoho Billing. Visit the pricing page to check if it's available in your current plan.
