While the Kareo Add-in for Excel offers several types of data to query, one of the recommended types of data to query is Transactions. The add-in reports on many transactions (e.g., Charge, Patient Statement, Payment Applied) that occur in the Kareo Desktop Application (PM) which allows System Administrators to run reports specific to those transactions. Reporting on transactions support and provide further details on standard in-app reports and also allows for further analysis of key metrics. For optimal performance of the add-in, it is recommended to limit the data returned due to the large volume of transactions captured within the report.
