Announcing Jive Lock for your transactions

9/8/2016 in ClearCheckbook Updates

Use Jive Lock to disable editing and deleting of transactions that have been jived.

We just released an update that adds the ability to lock all transactions that were jived more than a specified number of days ago. We're calling this feature Jive Lock and it's available to all ClearCheckbook Premium members.

Using Jive Lock will help keep your jived balance in check by preventing any alterations to jived transactions which could throw your balance off. Another way to think of this is archiving jived transactions but still having them displayed in your transaction register.

All jived transactions that have been locked will replace the icon with a icon in the transaction register.
ClearCheckbook Jive Lock

You can set jived transactions to lock after 1, 2, 5, 10, 30, 60 or 90 days from the date the transaction was jived. This will give you at least one day to make any modifications or unjive a transaction before it's locked. The only times when a locked transaction can be modified are when you mark a locked transaction as 'paid' through the Credit Card tool, use the Delete All Transactions setting or by using the Start Over setting.

You can enable Jive Lock and set the number of days by clicking on Settings at the top right side of the page, then click on General Settings.

I can't wait to try this out. If it works as expected this feature will save time reconciling (ie. jiving) my accounts.

Jive Lock function
I have been experimenting with this a bit. I locked my jived transactions with the one day lock. A couple of days later I wanted to "jive" some others without making them permanent so I turned the lock off and all of them became unlocked. How exactly does the lock work? What I am actually looking for as a way to mark when they have cleared the bank but only finalize that at reconciliation. After I have balanced my checkbook each month I want them to permanently stay that way. Any advice others can give me/????

Jive lock is to prevent you from editing or deleting any transactions that have been jived. You should only be jiving transactions that have fully cleared with your bank and you've done your reconciliation. You can enable jive lock so that after a reconciliation you won't accidentally edit or delete one of your jived transactions.
