Edit Recurring Transactions Template

Later on, you might want to edit an existing template without starting completely from scratch. For example, if your landlord were to raise or lower your rent, you would want to make a small change to the template you just created.

You can edit or delete any recurring transaction here on the Recurring Transactions menu. For example, change the amount to be paid from $2300.00 to $2100.00. Remember to click Save Template once you’ve made your changes.

And that’s it. You’re done!
