The Receipts module can be used to create a receipt as a record and/or for a customer regarding any incoming payments or incoming revenue.
1. From the Accounts Receivable menu, click Receipts.
2. From the Create/Edit Receipts tab, select the applicable Customer from the corresponding pull-down. Making a customer selection will auto-populate the Customer Name field. If the customer isn't registered in the system, leave the Customer pull-down blank and enter their name in the Customer Name text bow.
3. The Date defaults to the current date. To change the receipt date, click in the Date field and edit.
You can backdate the receipt date, but you cannot post date. The field will turn red letting you know there is an error.
4. Enter a Description if desired.
The Description can be as long or short as needed. To expand the box, click the two lines in the right corner and drag the box to a bigger size. This feature applies to any text box that has the two double lines in the right corner.
5. If the product purchased and being paid for is a standard product registered on the Product List, select it from the Product pull-down.
If a Product is selected from the pull-down, the Description will auto-populate with data entered on the Product List; this will delete anything written in the Description field previously.
The products listed in the Product pull-down populate from the Internal Account Product List and/or the Product List (depending on settings). Both of these screens can be found from the Accounts Receivable menu.
6. If an invoice was previously created that you’d like to attach to the receipt, select it from the Invoices pull-down. If the Amount was not already populated, it will automatically populate now based on the invoice.
The Invoices displayed in the pull-down are dependent on the Customer selected. The invoice would have to be tied to a specific customer when creating the initial invoice. If there haven’t been any invoices tied to the selected customer, then you will not see the invoice listed here.
Updated so receipts generated from an invoice without a defined Object against an expense line will generate an “AR Receipt Transfer” journal source once submitted via Accounts Receivable > Invoices and posted via Accounts Receivable > Receipts.
7. If a product was not pulled in or an invoice was not attached, you can enter the Amount for the receipt.
The option to edit the Amount field when tied to a product or invoice is dependent on the district.
You cannot edit the Amount of a receipt that has been deposited unless the deposit is first voided. Note: This does not apply to allocations as districts may allocate receipts after the deposit has been made.
8. Select the Type of payment being made: Cash, Check, EFT, Other, etc. Some districts may have more or less options here; it is dependent on district settings.
If the customer is using a debit/credit card for payment, you will need to use your own debit/credit software to process the payment. If you are using Point of Sale (POS) with Focus, the transaction, including the receipt, will all be generated via POS.
9. If the payment Type is a Check, you can utilize the Reference Number by entering the check number. Otherwise, the Reference Number section can be used for any additional payment information.
10. The last column is the EFT Bank column, which will remain inactive (grayed out) unless EFT is selected as the payment Type. If EFT is selected as the method of payment, you will have a pull-down of all your banks. Select the bank to which you would like to receive the funds.
11. Once all selections have been made and all information has been entered, click in any of the text fields and press Enter to save the receipt line.
You will know the data has saved because the line will turn blue and a red minus sign will appear; this serves as a delete button. Click the red minus sign to delete the line of data.
You will also notice a Files & Comments button appear.
12. Click the View button to open the receipt in the Current Receipt tab where you can add or edit additional information and Post the receipt.
13. Click the Files & Comments button to add additional information to the receipt. Files and Comments can also be added upon clicking View and reviewing the receipt via the Current Receipt tab.
a. As indicated in the Files section, drag files directly into the box to attach documents or click the Select button to browse for files. Click the Scan File button for direct scanning; this will prompt you to download Dynamsoft. This is a one-time download that allows you to attach files directly from your scanner. In doing so, you will bypass saving the file to your computer first.
b. To add a comment, type the comment in the text box. Then, click the Post button. The comments left here are for internal use only, meaning only other staff members will have access. Comments will not print on the receipt or be viewable by the customer in any way.
Once a comment is posted, it cannot be deleted or edited.
14. Click the Print button to print the receipt.
