Assign accounts to groups in the Trial Balance page
This feature is only available with products on the CaseWare Cloud Engagements platform.
In order for your trial balance to display financial data properly, you must assign your accounts to their associated groupings. This process is also known as mapping the trial balance.
Accounts are typically assigned automatically after an import. However, for accounts that can't be automatically assigned or belong to a unique group, you have to manually assign the account to the grouping.
When you manually add accounts to the trial balance or import them, you must assign the new accounts to the appropriate grouping for the financial data to correctly populate.
To assign an account to a group:
From the top menu, select Trial Balance.
Select the grouping menu and choose one of the available grouping structures.
The available groupings are:
- Tax Code
- Chart of Accounts
- GIFI (only available for CaseWare RCT)
Select the Assign Accounts icon ().
Tip: If there are unassigned accounts in the data, the icon shows the number of unassigned accounts in a red badge. For example, if there is one unassigned account, the icon displays the number 1 in a red badge ().
Select the account from the Unassigned column.
The account now displays in the Selected Accounts column. The application may also display grouping suggestions under Suggestions.
Select a group to assign the selected account to that group.
Tip: You can also drag the account from the Unassigned column and drop it in a group to assign. You can also search groups using the search field. Note that you need to enter at least 3 characters in the search field for the matching results to display.
Your account is assigned to the associated group and the trial balance updates to reflect the new financial data.
