Sales Account Import Types are the type of Sales Accounts brought in from the POS. Depending on the POS system, these types may or may not have been set up when your system was initially implemented. If your system allowed for this setup, this field will be present on your Location records. Selecting a specific Sales Account Import Type in R365 can benefit Sales analysis by narrowing in on the type of Sale made at each of your organization's restaurant Locations.
Sales Account Types must be mapped to a GL Account to view and assess Customer preference and patterns through Ad Hock Reporting. Three different options are available in the Sales Account Import Type drop-down menu:
- Service Type - This refers to 'Dine In' or 'Dine Out' options assigned to a Sale. This is the default option
- Revenue Center - The areas within a Restaurant where points of Sale are made (i.e. Bar, Dining, Patio, ect.)
- Revenue Center & Service Type - This looks at both types of Sale coming in from the POS
Editing Sales Account Import Types
The Sales Account Import Type for a Location can be changed at any point from the default 'Service Type' by navigating to the Location record and selecting the desired option.
A Warning window will appear asking for a confirmation of the change. When you have confirmed this change, you will need to go back to the 'To Do Checklist' under 'Reports' in the 'Accounting' module and map your GL Accounts to the POS.
