Record transactions with bank rules

What are bank rules?

Bank rules mean you don’t have to search for a smart bookkeeping template every time you need to record a bank transaction. The transaction is analysed and, if it matches a bank rule, the template is automatically suggested. You can record your transaction easily with just one click!

Bank rules work both for bank feeds or manual bank import.

How to record transactions with bank rules

When you create a bank rule it’s automatically activated. New and already imported transactions will be able to match the rule. To record transactions go to Bank feeds → Transactions to record.
