Can I manually select two transactions and reconcile them?

I searched the community; the closest matches to my issue still did not address what I want to do.
In my Google spreadsheet, I see two transactions - one manually entered, the other downloaded from the financial company account - which I know to be identical. When I run the Reconcile Transactions operation, it does not match these two transaction iterations. I’m sure it has to do with one of the iterations missing key data.
Is there a way to simply select the two rows in the spreadsheet that correspond with the same transaction and “manually” force them to reconcile?
Thank you.

I think once you’re going manual, you can just delete the manual transaction. But I would see what in the two transactions are there that causes it to mismatch and see if there’s anything to be done during transaction entry.

I’d rather merge the two copies of the transaction. The manual copy has info I can’t get from a bank (such as what project I bought an item for); the downloaded copy may have institution data I might need someday.

This is really interesting! We are working on the Reconcile Feature (slowly) and I’ll make sure this feedback gets included.

Right now there isn’t a way to do this. I think it’s looking for matches on Account #, Account Name, and Amount within a date range. Perhaps you can change those values in the manual one to match the automated one then try the reconcile flow again?

Thank you. I will try that; it sounds promising.

As @heather mentioned, @cogreg, check for exact matches in the column she listed. Also check that:

  • The Transaction ID for the manual transaction starts with “manual:”
  • The Metadata for the manual transaction contains this text: {"manualTransaction":{"reconcile":true,"ignoredIds":[]}}

It should work if all of these fields are setup properly. Let us know what was missing.

I do like your solutions of manually matching and forcing two transactions to merge.
