Bank Reconciliation

To date, I have not used this feature but have completed my bank reconciliations offline on spreadsheet software. I am now more interested in using this feature. However, on all my past payments, the payment status is “Pending”. I am wondering if there is a way to batch change all my past payments to the “Cleared” status rather than editing each individual payment to the “Cleared” status. Is there some way that this can be accomplished?

Use Batch Update. Read the relevant Guide about batch operations. Also, your software is out of date.
