Typically, a transaction is divided into two types: income (e.g., receiving salary, bonus, borrowing money, collecting debts…), or spending (e.g., buying food, shopping, lending, repaying debts…). This article explains all the transaction fields in more detail.
You can find an overview guide to create a transaction here
The figure below shows the details of all the transaction fields. Note, to fully display all the fields as below, you need to click the Show More button at the bottom of the screen.

7. Share with Group: Share the transaction with the selected group. See more details in the article How to Share data with a Group.
