Map data

If you import data into Firefly III, you may notice that the importer isn't particularly "clean" when it comes to account names. Check out this example:

Weird opposing account names.

In this example you'll see various weird things. You can expect stuff like this:

  • One restaurant with two different names.
  • Several shops with their location in the name.
  • Date information in the name.

To fix this, Firefly III supports a process called "mapping" where you can link values like these to another entry. This example will make it pretty clear. It is taken directly from the importer:

Mapping names to one account.

You can map account names to values already present in your Firefly III database. This will greatly smooth out the import process.
