How Do I Tell GoDaddy Bookkeeping to Automatically Categorize Future Transactions With the Same Name?

Do you have a lot of uncategorized transactions in your account and don't know how to handle them all? Tired of re-categorizing transactions into the correct category? Good news! We have a great feature that can be easily implemented in order to tell GoDaddy Bookkeeping to remember your changes. To do so, please follow these instructions:

1) Find the transaction that you would like to edit and click on it to bring up the transaction details.

2) Edit the part of the transaction that is currently incorrect. (For this example, I am editing the "Category.)

3) After the change has been made, a yellow box describing the change will pop up. If you would like to apply this change to all future transactions with the same payee name, simply check the box located within the yellow box.

4) Click "Save" to apply this change to ALL future transactions with this payee name.

 

Keep in mind that this will affect all transactions with the same payee name, so we do not suggest making this change on transactions that belong in multiple categories, but have the same payee name. For example, Walmart, Target, PayPal, Amazon, etc. Since these payee names have transactions that fall into multiple categories, telling GoDaddy Bookkeeping to automatically make this change is not suggested. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact support HERE and click 'submit a new request' on the right side of the page.  In order for us to assist you best, please make sure to explain in detail what it is that you are referencing and please include the email associated with your GoDaddy Bookkeeping account.

 

PLEASE NOTE: Transactions from the same Payee that come in with a tracking number or transaction ID that changes each time cannot be automatically categorized as the Payee name is different every time that transaction is imported. For example, UPS Shipping transactions cannot be automatically categorized since they are imported with the Tracking number each time. Another good example is transactions that come through with the name "Check ####." Since these types of transactions will include the check number each time, GoDaddy Bookkeeping cannot remember this change.
