Is it possible to remove or make a chart of accounts items from previous years that are no longer in use inactive
I suspect that is what these ideas are suggesting
While not “inactive”, you can always use the on the Summary tab and Reports
Alternatively, you could reallocate (find and recode) the transactions into a “collection” account and then delete the account but that is assuming you have printed the required reports. I have done this for accounts not used for a period and the account / transactions are always recoverable if required.
