Create Payment Journal Templates and Batches

In Business Central, payment suggestions are generated and posted in payment journals. The structure of the payment journal is similar to the structure of other journal types. However, the payment journal contains some fields that are specific for processing payments. Before you can start generating payment suggestions, you have to set up a payment journal template and a payment journal batch.

If you assign a bank account to the payment journal template, the bank account will be inserted on all payment journal batches and payment journal lines that are created by using this template. By specifying a bank account for the journal template, you can reduce the time that is required for checking the payment suggestions.

To create a payment journal template

  1. Choose the Search for Page or Report icon, enter Payment Journal Templates, and then choose the related link.

  2. Choose the New action.

  3. On the EB Payment Journal Templates page, fill in the fields as described in the following table.
