There is a video at the bottom of the page for your convenience. Fields with an asterisk (*) are required.

Accounting Books

This setting will allow you to create a special type of Journal Entry. When running financial reports, you can include or exclude these groups of entries.


Default Accounting Basis

This setting will select the default accounting basis for which reports will be run out of ResMan for that property. Please select from the options given.


Payment Allocation Order

Drag and drop each payment category so that when the resident submits payments, the funds are applied in the correct order.

  • "Pay by date only" will apply payments to outstanding charges from oldest to newest by date.  
  • "Pay by category and then by date" will apply payments by transaction category then go from oldest to newest charge inside of that Transaction Category. 

Note: These settings are "global", which means that these settings apply to all properties listed in ResMan. Security rights may be given that will allow the user to manually change how payments are applied. In ResMan, the security settings are located in Admin>Groups
