Review your transactions

Marking a transaction as reviewed on the Transactions page helps you ensure all the details of the transaction are verified.

When you import or create a transaction, check the description, select a category, add a sales tax if applicable, and add customer or contractor information to verify the information.

Only the Category field is mandatory to verify the transaction. Leaving a transaction unreviewed does not impact your reports or your ability to perform bank reconciliation.
