To connect Dinero to Plecto:

  • Once you have granted access to your Dinero account, the website will redirect you back to Plecto where you will be able to select the data types you want to import.
  • To finish and import your data, click "Next."

When importing your data from Dinero, the data type called "Entries" requires selecting the start and end dates of your accounting year. The dates must be written in the YYYY-MM-DD format.

Selecting an accounting year, for example, from 2020-01-01 to 2020-12-31, means that, with this import, Plecto will create a new data source and only import data within the appointed accounting year.

Be aware: If you add start and end dates that do not confirm with your organization's accounting year, Plecto will not be able to import your data.

To import data from another accounting year, for example, 2019, you will have to create a new data source with Dinero and import the "Entries" data again. This time you only need to select the "Entries" checkbox from the data type list and add in the different start and end dates - for your accounting year 2019, for example.

Tip: You can add a custom data source name, for example, "Accounting Year 2020," while choosing the data types you wish to import to Plecto. Toggle the "Advanced settings" menu and type in your custom data source title.
