Create and edit your custom dimensions here. Custom dimensions are a line item level dimension that can be added to any Document (Journal Entry, Invoice. etc.). These are commonly used for creating a dimension that is relevant for your organization (e.g. Property, Region, Salesperson, etc.).


By default Custom Dimensions are not visible in SoftLedger. To enable them please toggle the Products ON under your Dimension Settings.
