Actionstep offers built-in accounting to users on our Practice Pro + Accounting plan. This article covers functionality only available with that option.
In this article, you will learn how to create general journal entries within Actionstep.
Most of the transactions and accounting records in Actionstep are tied to ledger transactions behind-the-scenes, but you are also able to manually transfer amounts between different accounts using general journal entries.
Creating a General Journal Entry
To create a general journal entry, navigate to:
Accounting -> Accounts -> General Journal
Doing so will take you to the list of general journal entries that have been created so far. You can click on the '+NEW GENERAL JOURNAL' button to create a new entry.
At the most basic level, you will need to populate at least the 'Account' and 'Amount' fields, and you will need to create at least one debit entry and one credit entry to ensure double entry.
Once you are happy with your settings, click on 'Post' to create the new entry.
General Journels cannot post Bank or Credit Card transactions. If you need to record transactions into either of those account please refer to Firm Withdraws.
