When making reports can I get reports on breakfasts, opals etc?
To get a report on how much money you made from Opals, first make sure that you have Opals as one of your transaction codes, then print out the transaction report for Opals only for the date range you require. Same thing with Breakfasts, etc.

Can you please explain the Charges in the Market Segment and Business Source report?
The Market Segment report displays Room Charge column which is the total cost of the room for the entire stay regardless of if each Nightly Charge has been posted or yet to be posted. Other Charges column is the total of all charges posted by the user Excluding automatically posted Nightly Charge amounts. Finally the Balance column is the balance amount outstanding ie what amount the guest is yet to pay you.
How do you overcome Date situation when you are doing your Transaction Report? We need this to cover Previous days date and Current days date, however any transactions which have been made to Guest’s A/c eg Telephone calls as they are checking out are being included in this report from the previous day. We enter things such as Breakfast, Paper, Discounts etc of an evening, therefore we need our Report to show these – hence the Transaction Report is needed over this two day period.
Some people take care of all their morning charges/payments without rolling the day. Then around 11, they roll day and check everyone out at that time. We give you the option of when to roll day and when to print out the report and when to post charges. There are countless ways to combine them to make it fit your style of operation.

If I want to go back and find out how many people and what type of revenue I generated for a particular annual event, how do I do this?
You can do this by assigning them a market setment. All these people are at your facility for a particular reason, so assign them to a market segment. Then all revenue can be tracked back to the Annual Event as well as individual guest history. The Market Segment Report can give you details.
