Receivables Memos

The receivables memos interface is used to enter debit and credit transactions. Each transaction will be created as an over the counter (OTC) order for the customer, billing code, and amount specified. Based on the memo type, each order will also be assigned the corresponding order type.

The interface is designed to facilitate quickly entering multiple similar memos in a single session, then posting them all at once. After each memo is added, the memo type, billing code, amount, description, and note will remain while the cursor is automatically returned to the customer selector

Organizational Access

Organizational Access allows eoStar to filter the specific records and transactions that are available in certain interfaces and key record types based on the logged-in user. The organizational access levels only serve as a filter for areas a user already has permission to access, they do not grant any access permissions themselves.

Customers are assigned to a Warehouse on their main panel and become associated by extension with the Business Unit and/or Company the Warehouse is assigned to. Users will only be able to create memos for customers included in their Organizational Access, provided they also have permission to access the Receivables Memos interface. Additionally, the Customer selector will be filtered based on the user’s organizational access.
