Using the Register and Entering Transactions

To access the account register for an account, click on the name of the account in the Accounts page.

The transaction register lists all the transactions for a particular account. (It works just like the old fashioned checkbook registers that you get with a new box of checks). You enter all your deposits and expenses into the register, but you can also transfer funds between different account registers, as well as assign each transaction to one or more categories or funds for tracking purposes. The transaction register also gives you the ability to print checks and reconcile your accounts to your bank statements.

From the register, you can enter transactions, transfer money between accounts, print checks, reconcile accounts and more. The register works very much like your checkbook register: you enter payees, payments, deposits, and categories. ChurchTrac automatically calculates the account balance based on the transactions you've entered.

Account Register

To create a new transaction, click on the "New Transaction" button at the bottom of the screen. For each transaction, you should enter a date, payee/description, transaction type, fund, and amount. The ref/check number, category, note and memo fields are optional. To assign a transaction to multiple categories or funds, click the "Add Another entry" option. Then assign the designated amount to each category and/or fund.
