Editing Transactions

Jul 2, 2014 9:00:00 AM

It’s bound to happen: You’re adding a transaction, you make a typo, and you don’t realize it until after you have saved the transaction.

When we developed Church360° Ledger, we wanted to make it easy to correct mistakes but difficult for anyone with ill intentions to manipulate actual transactions. We came up with a solution: give users an experience of changing a transaction, but create a new offsetting transaction in the background.

Here’s how to edit a transaction:

  1.     Go to an account profile screen.
  2.     Click on the transaction you would like to edit.
  3.     Change the appropriate information (date, accounts, or dollar amounts) to what they should be.
  4.     If changing the amount, be sure to change both sides of the transaction.
  5.     Click "Save."

That transaction will appear as if it has changed, but a new transaction has actually been created. This new transaction offsets the original transaction according to the changes you have made.

The new transaction will be linked to the old transaction, indicated by a small arrow to the right of the amount. When you click on the arrow, it will show the change applied to the transaction. When not clicked, the transaction will show the final results, or the corrected transaction. These changes are all tracked in the event log so that they can be properly audited if needed.
