The audit feature is an additional scan that can be used after a reconciliation scan to further check for errors in your QuickBooks account data. An audit is not usually necessary if your account's balance and transactions were all correct in the reconcile, but if you had an incorrect balance it can be extremely useful to find the source of errors.
The Difference between Reconcile and Audit:
A reconcile gathers all transactions from the Bitcoin blockchain, and then checks that those transactions exist in your QuickBooks account and that the balances are correct. This is the most useful for the majority of situations where you just need to sync in any missing transactions.
An audit retrieves all transactions in your selected QuickBooks account, and then performs a series of verifications on them to ensure they are correct. We check that the transactions exist on the blockchain, there are no partial transactions missing, Blockpath created them, and they have not been modified since. An audit can find stubborn unwanted transactions that QuickBooks occasionally decides to make, like a "balance correction" to set the balance to 0 when deleting an account.
How to Run
Start by running a normal reconcile from the Integrations Tab in your Blockpath wallet. After that has finished, you will be offered to run an audit.
The results table will alert you if we found any suspicious transactions. As this tool is still being developed, it make raise a false alert on some transactions.
If you see a transaction that you want to investigate or delete, copy the QuickBooks ID from the row. This is an ID assigned to a particular transaction by QuickBooks, and it is only visible to the user in the URL on their website.
To see your transaction, first open a transaction of a similar type in QuickBooks. If your transaction is a Payment, open another Payment in your QuickBooks Online account. Next, look up to the URL bar and find the ID number, and replace it with the one you copied.
For example, a Payment transaction's URL may look like this:
Replace the "1325" with your new ID number to see your transaction.
