Change assignment type

Accountants Enterprise only

The Assignment Type Change function converts one assignment type to another to enable pooling a group of assignments under one report. You can also update the Assignment Name and Code using this function.

The assignment type generally describes the main types of both internal and external work performed in the practice and specifically the work carried out. For example, you may have β€˜Tax’ as an assignment type.
