The Accounting Block is where you can manually keep track off your cash and where it currently lives. Since MyBlackbird cannot move actual funds for you, you will need to ensure that the numbers you see on your dashboard reflect what is actually in the physical locations you're managing. When transferring cash from one area to another one online, you’ll need to also move the physical cash to the right locations yourself.
Within the Accounting Block, you have four additional blocks that you can navigate to:
Stations are essentially your cash registers, so when setting up your stations (Learn more about stations here!), you should make sure that each station you create is tied to a physical register. This is because stations are used to track product sales and keep a running total of the cash in the register it is associated with. That total amount that should be in the physical register is what you will see in the Balance Stations Block.
Safes are essentially your places for safe keeping of your cash flow. This is because stations are used to track product sales and keep a running total of the cash in the register it is associated with. That total amount that should be in the physical register is what you will see in the Balance Stations Block.
This block allows for you to transfer funds between safes and stations.
You also will be able to see a snapshot of your current funds on the right side of the screen, titled Quick Look. All of your stations and safes will be visible in this space for quick reference.
