What Does Active Mean?


The term 'Active' is used to identify whether certain objects are enabled. In this context, 'Active' is used for the following objects:

An active Email Notification, Expense Type, or similar objects are available for use in the tool.

For example, in order to see an Expense Type while recording an expense, the Expense Type must be active. Conversely, an inactive or disabled Expense Type does not appear in the Expense Type drop-down on the expense, but remains in the system to keep the historical record of the expense intact.

It is recommended administrators never delete the objects with an Active/Inactive toggle. Instead, the administrator should simply deactivate the option to prevent future use.
