The action can write an entry to one or two accounts at the same time, allowing account transfers to be made that take value from one 'source' account and place the same value in another 'destination' account.

Select a Query and Field that return the value of the transaction to be recorded.
Enter the date to be recorded against the transaction.
This can either be 'now' (optionally adjusted by an offset), or a date returned by a field from a Query.
Note: regardless of which date is chosen, the transaction will be recorded now (with the specified date against it). If you do not want the transaction to be recorded now, but at a later date, use an event Delay and place the Account Transaction action as a child action of the Delay.

Destination account tab
This tab operates in the same way to the Source account tab detailed above.
This tab contains the queries supporting the settings in the other tabs.
By definition, both the source and destination transactions share the same Currency, Date and Amount. If you need these to be different - for example where you are selling one currency into another, use two Account Transaction actions, and use the Source tab of one and the Destination tab of another.
