View your company’s complete history of financial transactions in one spot -the General Ledger. The General Ledger (GL), or what you may think of as your business’s master list, hosts all debit and credit entries making it a go-to reference for reporting and a reference for detailed history including transactions and journal entries.

For example Jane Smith, from Lyons Den, needs to create department budget sheets. The Executive Team requested a prediction model for Office Meals for 2020’s fourth quarter.

Access the General Ledger

From the left-hand navigation, select Tools and click General Ledger from the dropdown.

The GL can be accessed by the Master User, Admins, and Team Members with “Finance (Dashboard, Transactions, Analytics, Financial Accounts)” access checked on their permission settings. Team Member settings may be checked here.

Tip: Duplicate the General Ledger tab to toggle if multiple filtered views are needed.

General Ledger Layout

Once the transaction is listed, the general ledger populates a series of columns that outline the debit or credit entry. Select Detailed from the top navigation to show all GL columns.

Filter Options

Use the upper navigation of the General Ledger section to filter in on specific accounts, dimensions, types, or even specific date ranges. Select Update to populate.

In this case, Jane will navigate to the Account drop down deselect All and select Office Meals in the Account dropdown. Then they will select Custom from Date Range and enter 2019’s fourth quarter. They created a second tab and did the same thing for 2018’s fourth quarter.
