Version: Connected 10.3 or greater


The Receipts ledger is a helpful tool to use when reviewing receipts.  A user can view lists of receipts in various statuses, including posted or unposted, applied, voided, and/or  specific Receipt types (Regular, Miscellaneous, One-Time).  The Receipts ledger also provides the ability to filter, sort, select and reorder columns, and to save settings using Connected Views.


The Receipts Ledger can be used to show similar or the same information as the Receipts Journal report (Summary Versions).

The following topics are covered in this article:


Using the Receipts Ledger 


Open the Receipts Ledger by clicking the "Receipts Ledger" button in the Connected Desktop window, or by selecting the "Receipts Ledger" from the A/R menu.  


NOTE: Users updating from older versions must be granted access to the Receipts Ledger as it will default to OFF unless the user account is a System Admin.  See the Introduction to Passwords, User Accounts, and Access Privileges for more information.



The Receipts Ledger will open as show below, with a default view of all receipts posted in the current month (except Quick Invoices).



The Receipts Ledger information can be filtered with the following options:


Receipt Date Interval: None (all dates, no filter), Select a custom date range, or many other preset date options are available.

Customer: All Customers, Select by a specific Customer, or Customers with a specific Analysis Code

Bank Code: All Banks or a specific bank

Payment Method: All Payment Methods, or a specific one picked from a drop down list

Currency Code: All Currencies or a specific one (requires Multiple Currencies to be enabled)

Receipt Types: Normal, Miscellaneous, One Time, Deposit, or Quick Invoice.
Status: Unposted, Posted, and Voided


The following actions can be performed on the records displayed in the Receipts Ledger:


Drill Down: A user can drill down to any receipt shown in the ledger window by double-clicking that receipt line. This will open the corresponding Receipts window, and display the information for that specific record.


Sort: Sort the displayed data by a specific column by clicking on the column heading.  An arrow will appear on top of the column heading, indicating the sort.  Click the same column again to invert the sort.  This works like all other ledger windows in Connected.



Refresh: As data is changed (receipts entered, posted, applied), the Refresh button will update the ledger display window with the most current information.  The window can also be closed and reopened to refresh the display.



Using Connected Views with the Receipts Ledger


Connected Views is a feature that is available in most all reporting and ledger windows.
