My connected Santander bank account gives every transaction the same description (Faster Payments Receipt) - How can I change this so I can use rules?

The payee information is there under 'Bank detail' but I don't seem to be able to use that for rules.

Thanks for reaching out to the Community forum, Matt CND.

 

QuickBooks Online (QBO) is a read-only app. Once you connect a bank account, it will bring in data based on the transactions posted into your bank account. Thus, changing bank description is unavailable.

 

In your case, when creating bank rules, you can use the "Bank text" option. This is the description that is coming from your bank.

 

 

You can refer to this article for more information: How to set and use banking rules for downloaded transactions.
