Step 2: Operating ResBook

When using ResBook to generate invoices, this can be done in 2 forms:

Type Scenario ResBook user Updated to MYOB
1) Guests check-in Full payment is taken when a guest(s) checks in Invoice is generated; payment is collected at the counter and entered into ResBook. The invoice is balanced. All invoices sent to MYOB would be displayed under Sales Register > Open Invoices.
2) New Bookings New Bookings enter ResBook Invoices are generated soon after bookings enter/is entered into ResBook. All invoices sent to MYOB would be displayed under Sales Register > Open Invoices.

Establish which method you will use for invoicing before filling out the details as on MYOB settings.

Step 3: Configuring MYOB for ResBook

a) Simplest tracking:
To keep things simple and have all bookings mapped to one GL code, you will need to assign the GL code created within MYOB and to the 'Default GL Code' as per screenshot:

b) Comprehensive tracking: If you wish to record each stock unit, please generate these under MYOB's Accounts List for all rooms/properties you are selling.

In Resbook, go to Settings (the gear icon) and select [Stock Conigurations] then find [Stock Units] then select the stock unit you wish to record and under the 'Name/Description' tab, enter the GL code next to the 'GL Code' field.

Please note:
Any stock units not marked with a GL code, will be recorded automatically against the Default GL code (as indicated above).
