    The bank import feature does not include GL Variables. 

    Will this be corrected in future releases?

    What is the work-around now?

    Hi Katie,

    If the account has a variable associated with it, then it will populate when the record is created. Will this work for you? 

    Also, we are focusing on improvements with just the bank direct connect tool and not the import financial file. 

    Thank you,

    Ryan

    I also worked in an org where the missing GLAV variables in the import functionality cause ABSOLUTE HAVOC.  It was a multi entity org, and they imported a TON of back data and did not have GLAV variables set up on accounts and it caused WEEKS of clean-up work.  If those are not going to be added, there should be a big warning on there somewhere to point out that they're missing.  They spoke more than once about abandoning AS rather than trying to get it all cleaned up.  Happily - we got through and past it, but ... I'd like to add another voice to getting them added - or disabling the feature.

    Ryan,

    This is a real problem for multi-company orgs. In this particular case, the account records do not have the GL variable populated. There are valid reasons for not populating that field on the account.

    So after creating the transactions via the Bank File Import upload interface, the user will have to manually add the GL variable to each CD (or CR) that is created. 

    So that is a workaround, but it would be a lot better if the user could add the GL variable inside of the Bank File upload interface. If that improvement could be made, that would be wonderful.

    Clients that use banks that do not participate in Yodlee do not have the option to use bank direct connect. They are stuck using the bank file import. 

    Thanks, Katie

    Hi Katie, 

    Is there other logic that can be built in to help automate the population of the variables? Even if this was available in this screen, a user would still have to assign each transaction to a variable. Also, it would be best to submit a ticket to Yodlee to have their bank included. 

    Thank you,

    Ryan

    Ryan, the bank has now joined Yodlee and we can pull the transactions in via BDC. Excellent timing...Katie
