Realm's New Look

You will see many changes when you sign in! But don't worry, we have thoroughly detailed information about the new look in our other set of release notes. The notes here cover what effects these changes have on Realm Accounting.

How do I access Realm Accounting? If you own the Realm application, you will need to use the new ministry hub to access Realm Accounting.

What if I only have Realm Accounting? If you've purchased Realm Accounting as a standalone piece, the ministry hub will default to one of the following pages:

  • If you have already set up your general ledger, Realm Accounting defaults to Transactions.

  • If you have not set up your general ledger, Realm Accounting defaults to Settings in the Ledger Setup menu.

Stay in Realm Accounting when you access reports. As mentioned previously, to access Realm Accounting, you must use the new ministry hub if you own the rest of Realm. However, when you need to view financial reports, we want to make sure you do not have to leave your area of expertise. Click Reports to open a new tab, and view all available reports while Realm Accounting is only a tab click away.

If you own Realm Accounting by itself, a new tab does not open.
