Import of Text and CSV
If you need to import files of different formats, you can save import settings as a profile. For this, configure all necessary settings, enter the profile name and click Save. The next time you import a file, simply select the profile from the list and all the settings will be set to their previous values.
Select an account that imported transactions will be associated with. This account will be used if the "Account", "Debit account" or "Credit account" columns are not specified, or the account name does not match any of the accounts in the system.
File encoding is usually recognized automatically without any problems. If the budget software cannot recognize encoding and you see gibberish instead of meaningful text, you can select encoding from the list manually.
You need to specify the type of each column before starting import (by clicking the header). At least you need to specify the amount and date of a transaction. If you do not want to import data from some columns, leave their type as <none>.
The type of a transaction depends on the selected columns. Amount is determined automatically using the value in this column. If the amount is negative, the transaction is determined as expense. If the amount is positive, the transaction is determined as income. Debit - all transactions are recorded as expense. Credit - all transactions are recorded as income. Columns can be combined. For example, if a file has two columns with a debit amount and credit amount and all numbers are positive, specify debit and credit columns. If a debit column has a negative amount, and a credit column has a positive amount, specify the Amount type for both columns.
In addition to income and expenses, you can also import transfers from one account to another. For this, you need to go to the Account column and specify both accounts using a colon: Debit account:Credit account. Both accounts must be present in the system.
