How the Invoice report relates to other reports

Reservation report

  • Use the Reservation report to identify the details of the reservation with which an Item Sale is associated. 
  • Each Item Sale is associated with an individual reservation id (on Item Sales Detail report)
  • A boater may be billed multiple times throughout the duration of their reservation, one Reservation ID can be associated with multiple sales.
  • This ID can be used to link data about the Reservation type to allow you to further report on Seasonal/Annual vs Transient customer sales

Invoice report

  • Use the Invoice report to identify the invoice in which the sale of an item took place
  • Each Item Sale is associated with an individual invoice id (on Item Sales Detail report)
  • There may be multiple sales completed on a single invoice, so one Invoice ID can be associated with multiple sales.
  • This id can be used to further track standalone POS sales and for breaking down the payment status of an invoice
