Use the audit log to re-enter deleted transactions

by Intuit Updated 1 week ago

Once you delete a transaction, there's no way to restore it. Using the Audit Log, however, you can recover the details of the deleted transaction so you can re-enter it.

Here's how to locate and re-enter deleted transaction(s):

  1. Go to Settings Settings gear icon..
  2. Select Audit Log.
  3. From the Filter ▼ dropdown menu, select the appropriate user, date, and event(s).
  4. Select Apply.
  5. Locate the deleted transaction. (Tip: To easily find deleted transactions, use the browser search Ctrl + F and type "deleted").
  6. Under the History column, select View.
  7. All the information needed for the transaction can be found under the Event column.
  8. Using the information from the Audit log, you can re-enter the transaction with its original transaction date.
Note:
  • Audit Log only works for transactions that were saved. There is no available report for deleted transactions. Consider voiding a transaction instead of deleting or completely removing it from your records.

Now you’re able to use the Audit Log to re-enter deleted transactions.
