How can I create and edit Categories?

You can now edit and create your own unique categories in your Aspire Account

Creating your own unique categories for your business is important to keep your business organised. Categories are used for your own internal reporting. Think transfers, budgets, cards, claims and tracking bills.

Category Management can only be edited by Admin or Finance users.

To create a new category, follow the steps below:

  1. Log into your Aspire Account
  2. Go down and click on "Settings" under the ⚙️ at the top of your account
  3. Select "Categories". Your "Manage Categories" dashboard will now appear
  4. You can then select "➕ New category " on the top right-hand side to create a new category. Here you can set the category name, select an icon and colour
  5. Once complete click on "Add new category"

This category is now available when you select categories for transfers, budgets, cards and claims. 

To Edit a category, follow the steps below:

  1. Head to your "Category dashboard"
  2. Click on the category you want to edit (note you can only edit "active" categories)
  3. Scroll down and click on "Edit" 
  4. You can edit, the Category name, Icon and Colour
  5. Once done, click on "Save changes" and the updates will reflect instantly

Note! You can also filter your category dashboard to show inactive and active categories, plus default and custom. Default is what Aspire has set for every account, and custom is the ones you have created.

How does auto-categorisation work on Aspire cards?

For Aspire cards, you can set the category as Automatic and let Aspire categorise each transaction. We do this by using the transaction information shared with us by the card network.
