Good to see your post here, louise41.

 

There is no undo option for the transactions made in QuickBooks Online (QBO). However, you can use the Reclassify tool again to move the transactions to the right account.

 

To easily find the transactions you want to reclassify, you can use the Audit Log history to locate the transactions you've previously worked on and correct them.

 

Here's how:

 

  1. Go to the Gear icon and select Audit Log.
  2. Select Filter.
  3. Use the fields on the Filter panel to choose the appropriate UserDate, or Events filter to narrow the results.
  4. Click Apply.

Learn more about using the Audit Log Feature through this article: Use the audit log in QuickBooks Online.

 

Once done, you can start reclassifying them. I know that you've done this already, but let me still share this article in case you need some refresher: Reclassify or move multiple transactions at once.

 

You might also want to visit our QuickBooks Online learning guides for tutorials and webinars about the product.

 

The Community is always open if you have other questions. Get back to me if you have one and I'd be happy to help. Wishing you have a wonderful day ahead.

Hello Louise41, 

 

 

Welcome to the Community page, 

 

Can we ask, what part did you do in the accountant tools to correct the thing that has made a bigger mistake for you? 

 

What was the last transaction you did in Quickbooks?

 

Could you give us more information so we can help you thanks.

I tried to reclassify an account.  Some transactions were coded under payroll liabilities when they should have been coded to pensions.  However, I seem to have recoded every single item in every single salary journal.  I was unable to undo this mistake.  It looks like I will have to go into every single staff journal this year and recode every single transaction carefully to ensure I get it right.  Is there a quicker way?

What I mean is that there were some incorrectly coded transactions.  I tried to use reclassify to change the account they were in from payroll liabilities to pension but now every single item on both sides of my payroll journal is coded to pensions.

Thanks for this.

 

is it possible to download the audit log, move the debits to credits and then re-input the transactions from Excel?  I know that Sage has the automatic upload of debits & credits, can I do that with QuickBooks?

Hi there, @louise41.

 

Thanks for coming back to ask more questions. You can export the Audit Log as an Excel File so you won't have to re-enter the transactions. 

 

To do this, simply click the Export icon in between the Print and Gear icon in the upper-right hand corner. Then, select between Open with or Save File before clicking OK

 

For future reference, read through this article: How to view transaction changes in the audit history. It helps you learn about keeping track of the changes made to your company file. 

 

I'd be here to help you some more if you need further assistance. Take care.
