Sales Item Set Up

You must tag sales items with a minimum so that it can be tracked when calculating minimum balances. This allows you to pick and select which items you want included in minimum balances. Also, this gives you the flexibility to run concurrent minimum programs, i.e. Food Minimum and Merchandise Minimum at the same time.

  1. Setup | Sales Items.
  2. Right-click the item you wish to assign a minimum to, click Modify.
  3. In the lower left portion of the screen there is a Minimum pull-down menu, select the desired minimum.

Tracking A/R Minimums

Once the above set up is complete, you can track minimum spending for all members through GolfNow Reservations. This report shows how much a person has spent on minimum eligible items, and if he/she is short of his/her minimum, and how much he/she owes. To print a report of A/R Minimums balances:

  1. Reports | A/R
  2. Click Minimums
    tracking minimums
  3. Select the date range you want a report for. All sales within this date range are factored into the minimum total.
  4. The Spending Activity checkboxes allow you to configure what level of activity you want to see on the report.
  5. The Count Child option gives you the choice on whether or not you want child charges from Parent/Child Billing to count towards a minimum balance.
  6. Click the Print button to print out your report.
