Hi there,

Does someone know how to change the default Expense and Income accounts that are set by default when editing a Product Category? See this screenshot: http://imgur.com/vgDjEi0

I have no found where to set them. 

Thanks in advance.

Dear Jonathan Vargas,

Default Income & Expense accounts in category loads from the Configuration Parameters.  To change it, you need to go to Settings >> Technical >> Parameters >> Configuration Parameter. 

Here you need to find Parameter named "property_account_expense_categ" & "property_account_income_categ".   By changing account set here, your default category account will be changed.
