Department setup

Post by Canuckgold » 12 Jun 2012 04:49

I am a Moneyworks Gold user and I'm a bit confused about the way Departments and Department Groups work. I have a "main" company that owns 4 cafes. Each cafe has a number i.e store 12, store 16 etc. My thinking is to setup each cafe as a Department. However I am confused as to what the Department Group is/would be. I have gone over the PDF Manual but it is unclear as to what I would setup the Department "Group" as. I am hoping that someone can lend some assistance. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I think you:

1. Set up each cafe as a department;

2. Set up a "department group" called "Cafes" and add each of the cafe departments to it;

3. In the accounts, set the "Dept Group" pop-up menu to "Cafes" for those accounts that are applicable to the cafe (some are presumably just overhead, so won't have the stores group).
