Your Accounting Purchases report now includes a Free-Form Text field to “Batch” or group your data. The data added to the Batch field can filter invoice information when running the Accounting Purchases report. The field may typically have a date value detailing when the booking is reconciled.

The Batch field appears in three sections in Tourwriter:

  • Bookings List tab
  • Itinerary Accounting Purchases
  • Bulk Accounting Purchases

Batching Accounting data for an Itinerary

You can batch your accounting purchases data for an itinerary and export it. Here’s how you can do it:

  1. Enable the Batching field by selecting the Field Chooser in the top left corner of the Bookings List tab.
  2. Add free text to the Batching field, similar to the Comments field.

Information added to the Batch field typically indicates the Booking to be reconciled. As an example, you could add your initials followed by the reconciliation date to indicate that you have reconciled the booking.
