Edit Transactions

Permissions control the ability of your Users to see certain data and take specific actions. Before moving forward, review User Permissions for Edit Transactions.

There are multiple ways to edit transactions in Jackrabbit. Edit all transactions or single transactions using the results grid under the Transactions menu > Search Transactions page. In addition, individual transactions can be edited directly within a Family record.

You select which users have permission to edit or delete transactions. All users with this ability should be aware of how either task can affect a family’s account. It is a best practice to edit a transaction rather than delete it. However, deleting the transaction is appropriate if it was created in error. 

Transactions can be restored - contact Jackrabbit Support for assistance.


Expand each section below for more information on editing transactions.

Edit Transaction Rules

To protect important data, not all fields in a transaction can be edited, and there are restrictions on when the amount field of a fee or payment can be changed.

  • The amount of a fee transaction cannot be edited if it is linked to a payment. Unlink the payment from the fee to make your edit and then relink it.
  • The amount of a payment transaction cannot be edited if it has been applied to fees. Unlink the fees to make your edit and then re-apply the payment.
  • The amount of a refunded payment transaction cannot be edited.
  • For ePayments, the following fields cannot be edited: Location, Transaction Date, Transaction Type, Amount, Payment Method, Check #, Credit Card Last 4, or Date Paid.
  • The following fields cannot be edited for payments and refunds: Transaction Date, Transaction Type.
