Bookkeeping: Registers

The Register is where you will find all transactions which belong to an account, such as a bank account or credit card account, which is designated as a register. This is similar to a bank statement.

From the menu, go to
Accounting > View Registers

In the register, you will see each transaction with the date of transaction, description and/or donor/payee, the account the transaction belongs to, the fund it belongs to, the amount and a running balance.

Selecting Register

Only asset accounts and liability accounts which have been setup as a register (via the chart of accounts) can be viewed in the registers page.

At the top of the page, use the Account Register dropdown to choose which register you'd like to view.

To setup your chart of accounts, as well as designating an account as a register, see How to Setup Chart of Accounts.

Register Tools

There are a few buttons on the top right side of the Register page. These buttons may look different if you are currently viewing a Liability account. The buttons seen above are displayed when viewing an Asset account.

Import from Bank
If you have linked Connection Card Pro to your online banking, you will see the Import from Bank button available on any accounts linked to a bank account. You can use this tool to view transactions directly from your online banking and import them into Connection Card Pro, saving you time. All paid plans of Connection Card Pro allow you to link one bank account at no additional charge. Additional bank accounts can be linked for $1/month/account.

To setup a bank account, go to Accounting > Financial Settings > Bank Account Integration.

Add Deposit / Add Expense
Clicking either of these buttons will take you to the Add Deposit / Add Expense pages. When viewing a Liability account, these buttons will refers to payments and charges instead of deposits and expenses. Most income or expense transactions can be entered using these options.

New Journal Entry
Click on this button to create a new journal entry. A journal entry allows you to manually enter the credits/debits for specific funds, accounts or tags, giving you a bit more control over the simplified deposit and expense records.

Current Balance

A running balance of the current register is displayed on the far right of each transaction. If you are viewing a register which has subaccounts, you will also see the current balance for this register, including all subaccounts, on the top right side of the list of transactions.

Though your register may include transactions dated in the future, with an accurate running balance for those transactions, this balance display will only show the current balance as of the current day. Future-dated transactions will not be included in this balance.

Searching Transactions

Use the search bar to search transactions in the register. The search bar will filter transactions which have a description, account name or amount that match the search term.

Keep in mind that when searching, transactions may appear out of order and the running balance may not appear accurate.

Reconciling Transactions

Easily keep track of which transactions have been reconciled or are not accounted for by checking the Show Reconciled Status checkbox below the search bar.

When checked, an additional column with a question mark will appear on the left side of each transaction.

Transactions which have not been reconciled yet will show a question mark.

Click on the question mark to toggle between reconciliation states. Reconciled transactions will appear blue with a green checkmark. Transactions marked as problematic will appear red with a red X.
