If you use the CSV Import feature or manually enter transactions, you’re likely using Manually Tracked Accounts. You may have used them to import historical data, track a bank that wasn’t previously supported, etc. When you link a bank and also track it as a Manually Tracked Account, you end up with two separate accounts in the Chart of Accounts. Since these accounts are actually the same account, you can link them to streamline your accounting and ensure your General Ledger, Chart of Accounts, and Balance Sheet are accurate.

You are also able to link a previously linked Plaid account and a currently linked Plaid account together, if needed.

To link two GL accounts together

  1. On the web app, click the gear icon in the top right corner

  2. Select ‘Banks & Integrations’

  3. Under ‘Manually Tracked Accounts’, click on the blue gear icon

You are also able to map accounts from within the settings of the Plaid linked account. To do so, follow the same steps but click the blue gear icon next to the linked account.

4. A details page will open

5. Under the ‘Account’ field, you can link it with a linked bank account/credit card listed in the drop-down

6. Click ‘Save’ and a pop-up will prompt you to confirm that the updated account will be associated with the linked account’s General Ledger, click ‘Yes’

After making these changes, the General Ledger and Chart of Accounts will reflect the updated GL account that you mapped the account to.

This will also update the account listed for the transaction in the Transactions Dashboard.
