Having TrulySmall Accounting's Smart Inbox in your hand, means tracking and managing your income and expenses has never been easier.
Your Home page's To Review tab contains all Inbox transactions that need your attention. The number in the tab title indicates how many transactions are in your Inbox awaiting your review.
From this tab, you can review, modify and post these transactions.
This tab also provides a quick way to upload a receipt, dynamically creating a new transaction from it.
Review, Modify, and Post a Transaction
Transactions are in order by date, beginning with the most recent. Swipe through the list to look for a transaction you want to review.
Tap on the transaction to open it. As is the case on the desktop version, transactions that are imported from your connected bank accounts have some editing restrictions. You can not change the transaction Date or the Account that the transaction is processed through, but almost everything else can be altered.

With uploaded Receipt transactions, you have added flexibility to change the Date and Amount.
Change the Transaction Type
Changing the type is simple. Tap the alternative Transaction Type at the top of the item.
Select, Change, or Add a New Supplier Contact to Your Business
Tap the Contact name to select from your list of contacts you've previously added to your business, or type in a new contact to create a new one, then tap OK.
Select or Change the Income or Expense Category
Until TrulySmall Accounting has learned your business, you may need to change the category that was given or add a category if one was not identified. Tap to edit the item, then tap the Category and swipe to find and select one from the list. Tap the Apply button to set the account category.
Break the Transaction into Multiple Items
When multiple categories of expenses or income are part of the transaction, you can separate them into separate items.
Tap the + Add line item link, then define the Amount and Category. If sales tax applies, tap the Tax element and choose whether it is "Included/Excluded" or "Custom...", then choose which tax(es) apply.
Note: For connected account transactions the Total is fixed to the amount received from the bank. Therefore you must change the Amount of the original item to be sure the sum of all items matches the transaction Total.
Update Transaction Details
The Transaction Details section includes whatever the bank sends as identifiable information, however you can tap the text box and change, add to, or remove the content.
Post the Transaction
Tap the Post button to post the expense to your business. Once the item is posted, the item will disappear from your To Review tab, and will be subtracted from the item count shown next to the tab name. Tap the Posted tab to access the transaction if desired.
