Before setting up the Direct Banking account first follow the steps on setting up your Business central bank account(s).

For every Direct Banking Account you want to synchronize automatically, you have to define the Bank Account, as mentioned above.

On the Direct Banking – Account you have to make the necessary integrations, so that after the import the Bank/Giro journal will be automatically filled with the transactions. ( Link the correct Bank Account No. to the Direct Banking account and set a unique gen. jnl. Template for the creation of the Bank/Giro Journals.)

On the General tab, fill the following fields:

  • Bank Account No. all the Bank Accounts are listed
  • Gen. Jnl. Template all the general journal template are listed

After you selected the above fields you can set the field Active on YES.
All settings are finished, and the direct banking account is activated the line will change to bold.

In the General tab the last transaction id is when starting a new bank set to an empty guid.
When the first import is succeeded this field is updated with the last used guid.

On the Bank tab, you can see the Bank Name, BIC and Bank Country Code.

On the Balances tab the Current Balance is shown.

The Payment tab is showing the Ponto enabled functionality.
If the linked bank account (bank) is ready for the processing of bulk payments the field bulk payments enabled will automatically be enabled.
