How the Transactions Report relates to other reports
- Invoice report
- Use the invoice report to see the Invoice/customer bill that a transaction partially settles
- Every transaction and its corresponding Payment ID are associated with one invoice and corresponding Invoice ID.
- The invoice/Invoice ID represent the bill issued to a boater for goods and/or services provided by your marina, while the associated transaction(s)/Payment ID(s) represent the boater charges or refunds that settle the bill.
- A transaction/Payment ID never represents the settling of multiple invoices.
- Reservations report
- Use the Reservation report to identify the details of the reservation with which a Transaction is associated.
- Every transaction and corresponding Payment ID are associated with one reservation and corresponding Reservation ID. A transaction/Payment ID never represents the settling of invoices associated with multiple reservations/Reservation IDs.
- A transaction/Payment ID may be associated with multiple line items and their corresponding Line Item IDs.
- Line Items Ledger report
- You can have one or more transactions made against an invoice, so transactions can pay for partial, one, or several line items. Therefore, the Transactions report and the Line Items Ledger report are not typically used with one another
- A line item/Line Item ID represents the individual good or service provided by your marina, while the associated transaction/Payment ID represents the charge or refund that covers the cost.
- Bank Transfer
- Connecting the Bank Transfers to the Transactions reports lets you see the bulk transfers in which your boater transactions reach your bank account.
- Connect the Bank Transfers report to the Transactions report via the Payment ID in the Bank Transfers report or via the Transfer ID in the Transaction report
