In the Expense transactions screen, I see a column "Source" but it is blank. Should it not show the source of the payment eg my bank account? What is this "Source" field?

I'm here to share some information about the Source column in the Expense Transactions page, girishk1963.

 

The Source field is the summary of the transaction. It includes the source account, source name, source memo, and source amount.

 

This will only show once you've linked a transaction. For example, if you've linked an invoice to a credit note, the Source field will show you the related items of the transaction.

 

You can take a look at this article for more information about Source: Targets vs. Sources overview.

 

Let me know if you have other concerns. I'll be around to help. Stay safe!

Thanks Adrian for your reply, is there a simple way to just have my source account listed as one of the fields? Without having to link the transaction? It helps me in reconciliation

Hi girishk1963!

 

The source in the Source and Targets is a different thing. The column is actually intended for expenses that are paid through a bill payment solution, like the Online Bill Pay (US only). This is used to distinguish them from other transactions. Please check this out: Payment details and history in Online Bill Pay. Find (Ctrl+F) the word source.

 

As for your reconciliation, there isn't a change to it.

 

If you have additional questions, please don't hesitate to go back to this thread.
