Hello, Charlotte Recons.

 

I can definitely guide you on how to get a bank account to show up on your Dashboard. 

 

The accounts (regardless if they have a live bank feed connection or not) will show up on your Dashboard as long as the type is either Cash at bank and in hand or Credit Card. Other account types won't show up however. 

 

Ensure the type for director's personal spends account is correct. If you need to edit it: 

 

  1. Go to the Chard of Accounts.
  2. Click the arrow icon beside Account history.
  3. Choose Edit
  4. Set the account type to either Cash at bank and in hand or Credit Card.
  5. Click Save and Close.

The Detail Type for the bank account can be any of the selection in the menu. Here's an example:

Note: Changing the Account Type will affect the accounting and reporting. You might want to consult your accountant before doing this.

 

If you need to record transactions (or run reports for it) for the directors personal spends account, please check out our help content for guides: QuickBooks Online general topics page

Thank you

I actually meant the bank dashboard, rather than the summary dashboard. But upon further reading, it seems only ones with a direct feed can be seen there. 

How would you suggest running petty cash, for example?
