Cash flow planned events versus 'real' events - does planner match them?

Does cash flow planner match manual input planned entries to the real events when they happen? 

 

I enter a planned event for next month.

Next month arrives, the real event happens and is posted in QB normally.

Planner pulls the real event in to its data.

Will I now have a duplicate in cash flow planner; do I have to go in and delete my planned version?

I guess cash flow planner won't match it? It would have to have the exact amount and merchant to match?

 

Thanks

Thanks for dropping by the Community, @dorianburt.

 

The Cash Flow Planner feature does save all manual user input. If the user makes updates in both the Planner and outside of the Planner in the rest of QuickBooks Online (QBO), the Planner will use the last updated amount or date.

 

To learn more about the feature, consider checking out these articles:

 

 

For tips and other resources, I recommend visiting our website for reference: Self-help articles.

Thanks for the reply, but I'm not sure it answers the question.

I think you're talking about changes to a predicted item, in or out of planner.

I want to know about a planned item I entered; will Cash Flow Planner match it to the real event when it happens later and only count one, or do I have to delete my planned one when the real one happens to avoid duplication.

Thanks!

Hello there, @dorianburt.

 

I appreciate you for sharing more details of your concern. Allow me to chime in and provide some details.

 

If the transaction created is cash basis that's the time it will show up in your planner. In that way, I'd suggest recording the real transaction when it happens to avoid duplication since it doesn't match the real event.

 

You can bookmark the articles shared by my colleague above for additional resources about Cash Flow Planner. It provides an overview of how to help you organize your cash flow, and track sales, receivables, and profitability more accurately.

 

In case you want to show the money going in and out of your business, you can run the Statement of Cash Flows report in QuickBooks. Just go to the Reports menu and select Statement of Cash Flow.

 

Let me know if you have further questions about this or need further help with anything in our program. I'll be more than happy to help. Have a lovely week!
