Recording / Transferring an opening balance

Once your Dinners have been created and before you make it visible to your parents you may wish to record / transfer opening balances if you have already been taking money outside of Schoolcomms for your Dinners or you are creating a new Dinner Plan:

  1. Log into Schoolcomms and click on Dinners
  2. Once you are in Dinners click on Record Charges from the menu on the left-hand side of your screen
  3. Select the Dinner plan you want to record the charge for, from the list on the left-hand side of the screen
  4. Under the members name you wish to record an amount for click in the No Action box
  5. Select if you wish to record a credit (positive balance) or a charge (negative balance)
  6. Add the amount of the balance into the amount box
    (It is not necessary to apply + or - when applying a credit or a charge)
  7. Repeat this process until you have added / amended all the balances you need to.

Once you are happy click Apply Actions on the top right corner and this will save the changes and update the balances for Dinners in Schoolcomms and in School Gateway.
