Step 3: Set up ‘Groups’ in Reap and match them with the spend category in Accounting Software

Please complete this step if you wish to sync all transactions as reconciled transactions in accounting software. Reap’s Groups feature organises your team members into ‘Groups’ (e.g. by department or location), which can correspond to your tracking categories.

If you have already set up ‘Groups’ in Reap, you may skip this step.

To provide more flexibility for you and your team, you may use different methods for individual line items. We use Xero's integration as one of the examples.
