# Create a Categorization Rule

New rules can be created in Settings / Categorization Rules.

Rule conditions can reference fields in the transaction object itself, as well as Expected Payments and Payment Orders reconciled to that Transaction. For a primer on reconciliation, refer to Reconciliation Overview.

We currently support the condition fields below. Reach out to [email protected] if you require support for additional condition fields.

Object | Condition Field | Supported Operators |
---|---|---|

Transaction | Vendor Description | Equal To; Not Equal To; Contains; Does Not Contain |

Transaction | As of Date | Greater Than or Equal To; Lower Than or Equal To |

Transaction | Amount | Equal To, Not Equal To; Greater Than or Equal To; Lower Than or Equal To; |

Transaction | Currency | Equal To; Not Equal To; Is Any Of; Is Not Any Of |

Transaction | Type | Equal To; Not Equal To; Is Any Of; Is Not Any Of |

Transaction | Direction | Equal To; Not Equal To; Is Any Of; Is Not Any Of |

Transaction | Internal Account | Is; Is Not |

Reconciled Expected Payment | Counterparty | Equal To; Not Equal To; Is Any Of; Is Not Any Of |

Reconciled Payment Order | Counterparty | Equal To; Not Equal To; Is Any Of; Is Not Any Of |

Reconciled Payment Order | Originating Account | Equal To; Not Equal To; Is Any Of; Is Not Any Of |

Reconciled Payment Order | Purpose Code | Contains; Does Not Contain |

Reconciled Payment Order | Creation Method | Equal To; Not Equal To; Is Any Of; Is Not Any Of |

Reconciled Payment Order | Type | Equal To; Not Equal To; Is Any Of; Is Not Any Of |

### Many Expected Payments or Payment Orders

In the event of many Expected Payments or many Payment Orders reconciled to the same transaction, the condition fields for **all** reconciled Expected Payments or Payment Orders need to be evaluated to **true** for the metadata to be applied.

For example, a rule that applies the metadata tag `payment category: vendor payout to ACME`

if the reconciled Expected Payment counterparty is `ACME Co`

would only apply when **all** reconciled Expected Payments have counterparty `ACME Co`
