Neo1 includes built in integration into online finance systems commonly used by SME customers, however it is not possibly to have built-in connectivity to all platforms, especially those which are installed locally on servers and not accessed online via web browser. If you do no use one of the following finance tools then please follow the below steps.
Creating an accounting segment for your chart of accounts
Step 1: For manual integration, get an export/extract from your finance system with the accounting codes/GL code (Chart of accounts)
Step 2: Create an accounting segment in Neo1. (Your finance system's accounting codes will be added to this segment).
Step 3: Hover your mouse over Accounting segment #1 and click on Edit (pencil symbol)
Step 4: Edit accounting segment.
- Name: Give it a name that makes it clear that the accounting codes are stored under that segment. For example: Chart of accounts, Accounting codes or GL Codes
- Value type: Choose Closed list from the dropdown
- Required: Tick the box. This segment requires to be mandatory for accounting codes.
- Visible: We recommend to untick the box and make it invisible for your users to see the codes. The accounting codes will be mapped to an expense type that the user can choose and see.
Adding accounting codes to your segment
Once you created the segment for your chart of accounts you can start adding the codes to the segment
Step 1: Hover your mouse of the accounting line you just created and click on the eyeball icon
Step 2: Click on the blue + on the top right hand-side of the page to add a an account code
Step 3: Complete the fields:
Code: add the accounting code (this code needs to match your chart of accounts from your finance system)
Value name: Add the value name (we recommend to use the same name as your chart of account from your finance system)
Owner (optional): When a code owner is assigned, any submissions with that code will trigger an approval request, routed to that code owner. This is the link for more information.
Parent values (optional): Selecting a parent value allows you to pull from the parent segment values to determine segment code relationships. An established relationship will mean that when you select a certain value for one segment - "Segment A", only certain values will populate for another segment - "Segment B". This is the link for more information.
Step 4: Once you are ready then click on Confirm and your code will be added to the list
Step 5: Repeat these steps until you have added all the relevant codes to Neo1
