Using Banking Connector

Info

This section describes the interaction with the figo banking service. The interaction with other banking services may differ slightly.

Retrieving Banking Transactions

Before processing your banking transaction data, you must retrieve them from the banking service. You can retrieve transactions for a specific bank account and period.

Info

If a transaction with the same transaction ID has already been retrieved, it is updated.

  1. Open the Bank Transactions tab.
  2. Select a list view.

    Note that the list view Recently Viewed does not display the button Retrieve Transactions.

  3. Click Retrieve Transactions.

    To access your banking service account, you must authenticate yourself to provider.

    If you retrieve transactions for the first time or if your authentication has expired, you are redirected to the figo login page:

    1. Specify your figo credentials.
    2. Select the bank accounts which you want to access.
    3. Click Connect.

      This redirects you the Retrieve Transactions page.

  4. On the Retrieve Transactions page, select the bank account from which you want to retrieve the transactions.

    You can specify a Transaction Filter for each account or Transaction Content Filters to filter the retrieved transactions by its contents. If available, the filters are applied automatically when retrieving transactions.

  5. Define the period for which you want to retrieve the transactions.

    • For the period start, you can either select the checkbox Start with transactions since last transfer or specify a date.

      If you leave the start date empty or have selected Start with transactions since last transfer but there are not existing transactions for the selected period, the retrieval starts with the first available transaction.

    • For the period end, you can specify a date. If not set, the current date is used by default.

  6. Click Retrieve.

    This retrieves the banking transactions for the specified account and the specified period from the bank server and creates the corresponding Transaction records in Salesforce.

Info

If there is a large number of transactions to be transferred, JustOn Banking Connector recommends to retrieve the transactions in smaller packages. Select the checkbox Start with transactions since last transfer and specify a reasonable end date in the past. This limits the number of retrieved transactions to a manageable amount. Then select a later end date and repeat the retrieval until all transactions are retrieved.

Deleting Banking Transactions

You can select and delete retrieved banking transactions. For your convenience, the Delete Transactions page allows for creating Transaction Content Filters automatically based on your selection.

  1. Open the Bank Transactions tab.
  2. Select a list view.

    Note that the list view Recently Viewed does not display the button Delete Transactions.

  3. Select the checkboxes next to the transactions you want to delete.

  4. Click Delete Transactions.

    Leaving all checkboxes unmarked deletes all transactions. Note that in this case, the content filter creation is not available.

  5. Optionally, configure the content filter creation on the Delete Transactions page.

    1. Select the Create Transaction Content Filter checkbox to enable the filter creation.
    2. Define the filter condition.

      Select whether the bank transaction field Name__c or Purpose__c is used for the filter creation.

      JustOn Banking Connector creates a filter for each unique value of the selected bank transaction field, except there is already a corresponding filter.

    3. Select the Delete all matching transactions checkbox to apply all new and existing active filters to all retrieved bank transactions.

      If, for example, you create a filter with the content John Doe, then JustOn Banking Connector will delete all existing bank transactions that match the content John Doe, even if you have not selected them for deletion.

      Following the options section, the Delete Transactions page shows a table that lists the new and existing filters that match the selected transactions. For new filters, the table allows to edit the filter name (by default, the first 30 characters of the filter content value) as well as to deactivate the filter. Existing filters cannot be modified.

  6. Click Continue.

    This deletes the selected transactions and, if the option Delete all matching transactions is selected, also all other transactions that match the active new and existing filters.

Forcing Authorization

You can force the authorization at the bank server before retrieving transactions or to redo an existing authorization, for example, if you need to access other bank accounts.

  1. Open the Bank Transactions tab.
  2. Select a list view.

    Note that the list view Recently Viewed does not display the button Force Authorization.

  3. Click Force Authorization.

    You are redirected to the figo login page:

    1. Specify your figo credentials.
    2. Select the bank accounts which you want to access.
    3. Click Connect.

    This redirects you to the Bank Transactions tab.
