Using Credit Book Holding Accounts

Credit Book Holding Account

In this guide we will cover the 3 operations required to use the credit book holding accounts: creation of new holding accounts; depositing to holding accounts; and distributing from holding account to new vouchers.

Creating a New Credit Book Holding Account

Step 1:
Navigate to Vouchers and select Credit Book Vouchers -> Holding Accounts -> then click Add

Step 2:
The voucher creation screen will open. In (1) you can input customer details to tie a specific voucher to a customer account, (2) You can input a starting balance and adjust the validity dates if needed, (3) Any required notes to include with the holding account, (4) To specify a custom name for the holding account you'll need to select "Specify" then input the desired holding account name, (5) select add to finalize the creation.


Depositing to Credit Book Holding Accounts

Step-By-Step:
Step 1: Navigate to the register module and select the "Tools" section. 



Step 2: 
On the right-hand side of your screen you'll find the "Credit Book Deposit" option. 



Note that if you do not see this option you will need to contact your course admin to enable the permission for "Voucher Manager" module and the subsequent "Credit Book Vouchers" permission.

Step 3: After clicking the credit book deposit the system will require you to select the credit book holding account you'll be depositing to and the deposit amount.



Step 4:
 Clicking "Add" will create a voucher deposit line item in the register and it can subsequently be rung in similar to any other transaction.

In this example below I have input a $100 deposit to the credit book holding account and can choose the pay button to accept a traditional form of payment against the order.
Note: I can edit the line item price if needed to generate a credit to the account without taking a standard form of payment, alternatively, the course is able to establish a custom form of payment to record a credit generated.



Step 5: To check the balance, usage history, or make additional edits to our newly created holding account we can navigate to the "Voucher Manager" module found in the top navigation bar. Next, select "Credit Book Vouchers" on the left-hand side and "Holding Account" in the  top navigation bar.

The club's holding account will be displayed here alongside the option to view its usage history and drill into the orders affecting the holding account's ledger.




Distributing from a Credit Book Holding Account


Step 1: In order to pay out the holding account balance into vouchers that can be distributed to customers we can navigate back to the "Tools" section of the register and choose the "Credit Book Distribution". 



Step 2: This will launch the Credit Book Distribution manager. In the top left-hand corner you can specify the number of new vouchers we will be creating. 
A) If desired the user can use the "+" icon to create a new customer profile or search for the customer using the magnifying glass icon.
B) Under the voucher number column you can specify a custom voucher number or alternatively swipe a hard gift card number.
C) The validity start date is automatically set to today, you can adjust this date if you wish for this voucher to be available at a later time.
D) If desired you are able to specify a voucher expiration date in the "Expiration Date" column.
E) If desired you can leave a note record against each of the created vouchers.

In the example below, I'll be distributing the $100 we deposited earlier into five new vouchers at $20 each. I specified a customer on the first voucher but left the remaining vouchers as anonymous.



Step 3:  After hitting "Pay", you are able to find the newly created vouchers under the "Vouchers" module, then clicking "Credit Book Vouchers" and then "Credit Books". 

In our example below, you'll find the credit vouchers we created in the step above. Additionally, we have the options to edit/view and print voucher information as well as delete or view the details voucher usage.
