Prepare transactions

To prepare transactions, go to Accounting > Prepare Transactions. You can then:

  • Update GL accounts, department, location, class, and other accounting fields.

  • Search transactions by user, merchant, merchant category, and others.

  • Filter transactions by GL account, amount, budget, or type.

  • Filter transactions by missing GL accounts, missing receipts, missing memos, conflicting rules, employee modified transactions, or transactions out of policy for other reasons.

  • Comment to the expense owner by clicking on each transaction.

  • Access an audit log that shows transaction editing history.

Mark transactions as prepared and ready to export by either selecting an individual transaction or selecting a date range and the box next to all transactions. Once transactions have been selected, mark them as ready by clicking Mark as prepared on the right. They will then be moved to All transactions prepared for review & export.

Transactions prepared for export

Step 1:  Go to Accounting > Review & export transactions to view all transactions that have been prepared for review and export.

Note: On this page, you’ll have the same filter and searching functions, but you will not be able to edit any transactions. The two functions you can do here areexport or send transactions back to review.

Step 2: To export transactions, select a date range and all transactions, or select individual transactions and click Export on the right.

Step 3: To send transactions back to review, select a transaction and click Send back to prepare. After a transaction is sent back to review, it will be flagged on the Prepare transactions page so you can filter to search for these.

Bulk editing transactions

You can bulk edit your transactions on the Prepare transactions page. To do so, check the box for the transactions you’d like to edit and edit any selection on each transaction. After updates are made, you’ll see an option to Update all at the bottom of the page. Click this to update all your transactions.
