Pandle’s bulk editing tool
Pandle has introduced an update to make it easier to fix errors quickly by enabling users to edit or delete multiple transactions at the same time. To make amendments to records, users can locate errors through the search bar or advanced search filters.
Users can select transactions based on a range of options including the date, bank account, type of transaction, description, category and tax code.
As multiple transactions will most likely have different amounts, the bulk edit can’t be used to bulk edit the amount. Additionally, although all transactions within Pandle can be edited in bulk, only certain entries can be edited depending on the type of transaction selected.
