Different accounting integrations offer different services and features, but typically you can expect them to pull revenue and payment data from Commander, and compile all of your financial information on one dashboard.

Before you connect

Before you request a connection to an accounting integration, you need to make sure that the settings in Commander which relate to accounting are all correct. If you don't, your financial information won't be correctly communicated between Mews and the accounting software.

Create or update your accounting categories

You need to create all of your accounting categories before you connect to accounting integration. Make sure that:

  • You've created every accounting category that you want to use at your property. You can create as few or as many as you like (depending on how you want your revenue to be organized), and you need to create separate accounting categories for any outlets (for example, if you have a bar that pushes revenue to Commander using a POS).
  • Every accounting category has the Ledger account code field completed—Mews and the accounting integration won't be able to exchange information without this, so consult your accountant to make sure this is correctly filled in.

Note: After you connect, your integration may need you to provide more accounting codes for each accounting category (but don't worry, these aren't a prerequisite).

Adjust your accounting configurations

  1. Go to Main menu > Settings > Property.
  2. Click on Accounting configuration.
  3. Under Options, find the Receivable tracking enabled checkbox.
    - If your accounting integration is powered by Omniboost, this should be deselected.
    - If you have any other accounting integration, this should be selected.
  4. Assign accounting categories to every different payment type (you can do this in the Cash payment, Invoice payment, Unspecified card payment, Additional expenses, Terminal payments, Gateway payments, and External payments fields).
  5. Under Accounting editable history window, enter 1 day.
  6. Click Save.
