Enter a number for condition group type and give an appropriate description. To begin with we will not worry about the check marks that are defined. However refer to F1 help to understand more about the settings.

Once the condition group type is defined, click on the condition type and add the conditions that have been defined in the previous step.

In the example, the condition types credit interest, debit interest, overdraft interest; account maintenance charge and item charge have been added to the condition group type. See the screenshot below.

We have just defined the condition group type for Settlement

Similarly we can define the condition group type for Transaction.

The method for defining condition group type for transaction is similar to settlement. The screenshot below is for your reference.

As you could notice the condition types for Transaction types differ.

The settings for condition group type for ‘Events’ is same as above.

This concludes the settings at the customising level. In the next few sections we will address the settings at the application level.
