Select date of expense. When you click on this bar a calendar will pop up for ease of entering date.
If this is a Batch Record – check box and fill out end date and if this is Monthly or Weekly from pull down menu. Batch Records help if you are behind in entering expenses and therefore have more than one entry to make from same individual with the same amount each week or month. Check Batch Records and put in the beginning date that needs to still be entered and then ending date so each one can be entered at the same time, helping with more efficient processing. This is ONLY for those entries that are for the same amount and from the same person/company.
