There are two types of adjustments that can be created - Fee and Credit. For consistency with what is reflected on an invoice, adjustments can be created and saved. The adjustment can then be applied by staff to a Child Care account or invoice. An example of a saved adjustment might be a Schedule Change fee (assessed when staff accepts a schedule change) or T-Shirt fee (assessed for each contract accepted for a Summer camp program).
There is an option to make the saved adjustment available to site staff using the Child Care Attendance app on the ipad. An example of that type of a saved adjustment used with the app would be a Finder's Fee (to assess a fee for time spent locating a parent to pick up a child). Note: You can remove saved adjustments from the Admin that are not longer being used without impacting the ones already assessed on accounts.
To create a saved adjustment, follow these steps:
- Point to Child Care.
- Select Adjustments.
- Select Add Adjustment.
- Complete the New Child Care Adjustment form. Choose Fee (to create an item that will add a new charge) or Credit (to create a item that will lower the amount due by that credit amount). Set Available On-Site to Yes if you wish the adjustment to be available on the Child Care Attendance app to be applied by site staff.
- Select Save
