Text-to-account mapping is used as an alternative for finding the accounts on bank account number or name.
Specific texts can be setup and when these texts are found in the remittance information of the transaction then this account is applied.
In the standard Business Central solution this feature exists to apply transactions against G/L Accounts.
It is used to convert a generic kind of payments, for instance, a text as ‘promotion materials’ or ‘credit card debit’ to the intended G/L Account.
For Direct Banking the text-to-account mappings have been extended with the capability to match generic texts not only to G/L Accounts, but also to a customer, a vendor or a employee.
Determining the account can be helpful for the quality of the matching.
In some scenarios it might be useful to continue with the matching process, so that next to the account in general also the specific outstanding invoices can be applied.
In other circumstances assigning the account is sufficient and further matching is not required. Therefore the Skip Metadata Matching checkmark exists.
This flag can be set to stop when a predefined text matches with the remittance information in the transaction.
This can be used if for instance you have unprocessed payments which are rejected by the bank with for instance reason codes. The matching process will be skipped and only the related account is proposed in the journal
The priority can be used to prioritize some texts over other texts.
The text-to-account is executed per priority.
Texts can be grouped per priority.
The highest priority is the set of texts with the lowest number.
After a match further searching for text mappings is stopped.
