Site and Type Rules
The goal of Site and Type rules is to help minimize false positives (matches), by assigning additional attributes to transactions.
For example, in a depository account, we might have two transactions, each for $100.
One might be an American Express deposit, the other an ACH. To make sure that we don't accidentally cross-match the transactions, we add a 'Type' attribute to each of these records.
The Rules screen (sample above) is based on the Microsoft Outlook Rules paradigm.
Each rule will search for text within the transaction during import. If it finds the text, it will classify the transaction to a type, copy text to a lookup field (for site assignment), or both.
You can define the transaction types by clicking on the 'Transaction Types' icon on the Home tab of the ribbon bar.
The screen shot above displays a sample for credit card deposits.
Please note that there are separate tabs/rules for Bank and G/L.
Use and tips
Most users only need to fill in a few rules (the balance are for multi-location credit card users) and can leave the Copy section empty.
