    So how do you prepare a monthly report showing everything that actually got deposited into our bank account? From what I am reading it does not sound like I can get that all in one report. It sounds like I'd have to do one report for cash and checks, and a separate report for online giving. Is that right?

    You can create a report of your actual deposits! See here: https://cl.ly/6e71eea0d36b 

    The reporting section should be able to help you get any information you need concerning this. 

    Blessings!

    I would like to request that envelope numbers be listed in the transfer history if envelope numbers have been set. We use the weekly transfer history to track our deposits and donor contributions in a third-party, offline system and this would help us with our reconciliations all the way around; from tracking donor information to our general bookkeeping.

    Thank you for your consideration!

    I reviewed the video you posted and checked it out myself. The only issue we have with this method is that it does not list the fees that were taken from each transfer (which you mention in the video). We would love to see that information here so that we can use one report for all of the areas we track information. We have a separate third-party, offline solution for tracking donor information/contributions. Then we have another third-party, offline bookkeeping solution. These are important to our church keeping checks and balances, as well as accountability. We need to be able to use one report for both solutions so that we cut down on paper to save on storage. Not to mention it is just best if all parties are working from the same document.

    Stephen Ivey,

    For some time now, I have been requesting the same information, I believe, as "office" above.  Your video demo above says that this report includes "the AMOUNT that was actually deposited into your account".  I'm sorry, but it does NOT.  It ONLY includes the GROSS amount of the gift.  The amount that was actually deposited into our account is the gross amount MINUS YOUR FEES!!  The amount that was actually deposited into our account is the column titled "Net Transferred" in the Transfer History.

    For those of us that work in accounting, THESE (Gross, Fees & Refunds, and Net Transferred) ARE THE NUMBERS WE NEED TO HAVE!!  I realize that it IS available in the transfer history, but the only way to print this information is to do a screen grab and put it in another application and print from that application.  Your window is not sizable, so we are limited by how much information we can get at a time.  This results in MANY pages, just a few lines at a time.

    I would like to be able to go to Reports and to select a Transfer (which I have to go to "More" to select) and to get all the information I need in one place.

    PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!!!!  It seems so simple -- just give us the choice to select Gross, Fees & Refunds, and Net Transferred as COLUMNS to choose IN REPORTS!!  That would give us all the information we need in ONE PLACE on ONE PAGE.

    Each time I go to Reports, I see your line "Looking for online giving details (fees, gross, net, etc)? Use the reconciliation report."  Clicking on that does NOT send me to a reconciliation REPORT.  It sends me to directions for the Transfer History.  Transfer History is NOT a REPORT!

    PLEASE!  We need this information in a REPORT!!!!!!!!

    All of us accountants would be grateful for this information.  Thank you!!

    Thanks for reaching out to the Forum! I can certainly understand your frustration here, especially when it seems like the solution is simple. I can assure you that our Team is very aware of your needs and are taking steps to ensure that we provide the best product we possibly can for the price that we are offering it for. As you stated, the Transfer History Report is still the best place to find the Net and Refund information that is necessary for Reconciliation. 

    Thank you for your patience with us as we seek to make Breeze as useful as it can be for you!
