Overview


Direct Bank Connections allow you to connect your financial institutions directly to the Bank Activity feature in R365 and automatically download your bank activity transactions.  Direct Bank Connections are accessible on the Bank Activity Screen and the Bank Account Record.  While you will still be able to manually upload .qfx and .qbo files to review you Bank Activity, the Direct Bank Connection feature will allow you to obtain and import your Bank Activity with a single click, all from within R365.

  • Note: Bank Activity transactions may potentially be unavailable for import the day of the initial Bank Connection (when the Bank is connected to R365), depending on the Bank in use.  This is due to a data aggregation process that runs nightly.  Activity retrieval will become fully functional the day after your initial Direct Bank Connection is successfully created.


Security


Users with access to the Bank Activity Screen will have access to manage Direct Bank Connections on both the Bank Activity Screen, and the Bank Account Record.  This includes both Accounting Managers and Accounting Clerks.  These Users will need the credentials to each separate financial institution in order to connect the Bank Accounts.  


Once connected, Users will not be able to view or modify the login credentials.  If the credentials are changed with the financial institution, the User will be prompted to provide the updated credentials during a future activity retrieval.


Navigation


Direct Bank Connections can be managed on the Bank Activity Screen, the Bank Account Record or the Bank Accounts Step in the R365 Setup Assistant
