You can see the auto categorization of bank transactions in action when you attempt to categorize an uncategorized transaction manually and there is no prior bank rule for that transaction category. Zoho Books prompts you with a Bank Rule creation page which would enable you to categorize similar transactions.
Fill out transaction form on the right hand pane and click Save.
Now you’ll be prompted to add a new rule.
When you try to categorize another uncategorized transaction which fits the conditions of a previously created rule, the categorization form on the right hand pane is populated automatically.
You can also add a new rule to categorize your transactions. Go to the Banking tab and select your bank account. Select Manage Trasaction Rules from the Gear icon on the top right corner.
Click the New Rule button on the top right corner and set the criteria in the New Rule form.
