** Please Note: Each TrustBooks Deposit slip can process up to about 50 transactions on a single deposit. Adding more than that can cause the application to time out. You will need to split up these deposits in order to record them.

10. Save all changes. You have two options:

Record Deposit – Your deposit will be recorded, and you will be redirected to the Dashboard page.

Record & Enter Next Deposit – Your deposit will be recorded, and you have a shortcut option to go directly to the Deposit Slip page to enter another deposit slip.
