Functionality of the Trip Types Details
There is one additional tab of information: Trip Type Default Fees. Mission trips have associated fees. If you have default fees for specific types of mission trips you can set them here at the trip type level and assign them at the mission trip level.
 
 
Edit/Update
Once you're in the Trip Type Details screen you can Edit/Update the record as needed.  These are the fields that can be edited/updated:
 
 
  • Status - Set the status as either Active or Inactive.
  • Mission Trip Type - This is where you'll enter a name for the type you are creating.
  • Associated Fund - Setting a fund here sets the default fund for all Mission Trips associated to this trip type.  Select the default "No Associated Fund" to bypass this functionality.
  • GL Unearned Revenue - You can set the GL account to which your unearned revenue should be posted to.
  • GL Earned Revenue - You can set the GL account to which your earned revenue should be posted to.
To update any of these fields simply click into the field and type the new field values. When you've finished updating the record, click either the "Save All Changes & Continue" button to save and continue working or the "Save All Changes & Exit" button to save and go back to the Mission Trip Type List.
 
On the Trip Type Default Fees tab, you can view and/or edit the following information:
 
  • Fee Type
  • Fee Amount
To update either of these fields simply click into the field and type a new field value. When you've finished updating the record, click the save icon to save your changes.

A pop-up window will ask you id you are sure you want to delete the record. Select "Yes" and the record will be deleted. Be very careful, deletion is a final action and can not be undone.
