The transaction status mechanism in bkper safeguards your finances, giving you full control of the data that enters your finances.
The transaction status can be Draft or Posted.
New Records initially enter your book as Drafts not altering balances and the text entry can be completed or adjusted before posting the transaction to your finances.
Posted Records actually altered balances and they can be checked or unchecked to mark their conciliation or not.
| A transaction in draft status does NOT alter account balances.
||A posted transaction has altered the "from" and "to" account balances.|
|All transactions are initially drafts and may consist of text with an amount, Url or image.|| Only on posting, after accounts are found and the amount is transferred from one account to another.
| While draft, the transaction recorded may be either incomplete or complete.
||Posted Transactions may either be unchecked or checked.|
| Drafts can be deleted without affecting the account balances. (Deleted drafts can be recovered from the trash bin and still be posted)
|| Posted transaction can not be deleted, to undo the balance alterations, they can be reverted.
Posted transactions can not be returned to Draft Status.
Incomplete - Complete
When a transaction is recorded in the system, the text is interpreted by the Bookbot, that scans all data to find the accounts automagically. Depending on the completeness of the text on entry and by the Bookbot the initial draft is either recorded as complete or incomplete.
Over time bkper learns about the texts entries and the more records are completed (either manually or automatically) the more likely bkper records drafts as complete. If no value/number is provided bkper can never record drafts as complete.
Unchecked - Checked
Book balances are represented as unchecked, checked or both checked and unchecked.
Turn autopost on when your Bookbot completes all entries correctly.
