Our users have been able to manage their expenses on Yardbook from the very start, but creating expenses is still a tedious task for many businesses.

With our latest enhancement, you can now connect your bank accounts and credit cards with Yardbook. Yardbook will then pull your expenses automatically and notify you when new transactions are added to your account. This way, managing expenses takes minutes instead of hours. To access this feature, click on Sitemap, then click on the “Sync Bank Transactions” link.

From this page, you can view all your transactions. You can also turn a transaction into an expense by simply clicking on the “Create Expense” link. This way you will not easily miss a charge, and don’t have to create expenses manually one by one.

Ongoing Sync

Once you’ve linked your bank account, Yardbook will try to pull new transactions once a day. If any new transactions are added, you will receive an email notification from Yardbook.
