Payments can be added with an application type of Other.  "Other" payments are still connected to a designation, however, they are not a “donation”.  For example, on the Total Revenue report these payments appear under the Other Income section.  Generally, on reports that show just “Revenue” these items will appear under their designation.  For this reason, we suggest adding a separate designation hierarchy section to track miscellaneous items.
 
There is also the option of a totally generic miscellaneous payment in Treasury.  This also appears on the Total revenue report as Other income, but does NOT have to have a designation attached, so it WON’T show on any other reports except the Deposit report and Account Distribution Report and Post reports.

Often times, these miscellaneous revenues are related to events or group sales, and sometimes using a Resource is the right solution.

Below is a summary of each type of miscellaneous revenue:
 
Group Sales Resource:
  • Affects the balance of the reservation/sales order
  • Can map to multiple GL accounts by Resource category
  • Patron Pays for item this directly
  • The activity appears on the Total Revenue Report as Resource income
  • Can process credit cards in Altru
 
Other Payment, with independent Other hierarchy:
  • Entered using "Add a Payment "or Batch
  • Can map to multiple GL accounts by Designation
  • Tracked on Revenue Reports toward Designation balances
  • Is not a Donation for other purposes
  • Activity appears on the Total Revenue Report as Other income
  • Can process credit cards in Altru
 
Miscellaneous Payment:
  • Entered on the Treasury or Financials Pages
  • One default GL account mapping is provided (the GL can be edited manually when adding the payment)
  • Not tracked on most Revenue reports as it does not count toward any Designation
  • Is not a Donation
  • Appears on the Total Revenue Report as Other income
  • Does not process credit cards in Altru (historic transactions or external CC processor only)
