As you are doing audits, monthly reconciliations, or if you just need to edit a transaction, one of the most useful ways to look at your bivio data is not found on the Reports page.
If you go to Accounting>Accounts, Accounting>Members or Accounting>Investments, you can click on the name of an Account, a Member or an Investment and find a chronological list of transactions specific to it. These are called transaction lists.
For example, if you have both a brokerage and a bank account, you can see only the entries made for your brokerage account by going to Accounting>Accounts and clicking on the same of your brokerage.
Since transactions are listed in date order, this is a very good place to compare what is in bivio with what you'll find on your brokerage statement. This is especially useful when you are trying to find a reason for a monthly cash balance difference. Comparing the two lists will lead you to what might be missing or incorrectly entered in bivio.
If you want to see all the entries you've made for a single investment, go to Accounting>Investments and click on the name of the investment. If the number of shares of the investment in bivio doesn't agree with your brokers statement, this is a good way to find where you might have missed or made a mistake in a purchase or sale entry. It is also a place where you can get the information you might need to work through a difference in cost basis between your 1099's and the bivio gain/loss information.
You can even find where you might have missed or made a mistake on a dividend entry.
If you need to see all the entries you've made for a specific member, go to Accounting>Members and click on their name.
If you find mistakes and you don't know how to correct them, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll be glad to help you. The reason for discrepancies is in your data in bivio somewhere. Looking at these transaction lists is often one of the best ways to find them!More questions? More Help
