For users who have more than one posting with a common element, batch posting can be used to input your entries quickly and efficiently.
For example, on one day you may have a number of cheques paid in to your client bank account. Those postings will appears on your bank statement as one lump sum and, when you post them, you will likely have to enter some of the same information on each.
The standard posting options will allow you to record all the information specific to that posting, commit it and then move easily on to the next, but the batch posting will allow several postings to be entered on to one screen and then submitted all together after checking that you have the correct total.
With batch posting, you first enter any common information such as the date, reference, description, posting type, amount and VAT rate. You can enter as much or as little information as is relevant to that batch. You then add as many posting as you require in to the batch, with the common information completed for you each time, but still available for editing if required.
