Pay cheques are different from other transactions because they do not have a link to view the Transaction Journal that details all of the debits and credits in the Chart of Accounts.
To view every debit and credit associated with a pay cheque, you must locate the Payroll Cheque ID, and then use that ID number to open the Transaction Journal for the ID.
The following steps can help you to view a pay cheque's Transaction Journal:
- Select Settings ⚙️.
- Select Audit Log.
- Select the Filter button.
- Under Events, select the Transactions checkbox, and select Apply to locate the pay cheque more easily.
You can select the Date column heading to sort the results by Transaction date.
- Locate the pay cheque in the list and select View.
- Make a note of the Payroll Cheque ID.
- In the Audit Log, open any transaction other than a pay cheque (such as an invoice, expense, or journal entry).
- Select More at the bottom of the page, and select Transaction Journal to view the Transaction Journal for that transaction.
If the Transaction Journal does not appear immediately, you can refresh your screen or press F5.
- Find the URL in the address bar of your browser and change the number at the end (after txnid=) to the Payroll Cheque ID number you noted earlier, and press Enter.
The Transaction Journal, displaying every debit and credit associated with your pay cheques, appears.
You can refresh the page if the Transaction Journal does not appear immediately.
