Import Accounts


This function is used to import Accounts into GoldFinch using the Standard Salesforce Import Wizard.  

Import Account Template

Before importing the Accounts, ensure you have set up the Default Warehouse, Default Currency, Default Payment Terms, and Default Tax Area on Company Setup.

Warehouse, Currency, Payment Terms, and Tax Area are required for transactions in GoldFinch ERP. If they are blank on Account, default values from Company Setup will be used.

Populate the Import Account Template with all your Accounts information.  This template will be used to import Customers and Vendors.  You can add additional fields to the template as needed.
