What is the difference between Void and Delete?
Scenario: A library fee is attached to Student A for not returning the book Clifford the Red Dog.
- DELETE Fee - is used when the item fee is attached incorrectly to one or several students.
A DELETED fee will display in the student's SchoolCash Register purchase history as having been a commitment. It will not appear on reports.
Although it doesn't appear anywhere as a commitment, the selection of DELETE Fee requires the school to enter a reason for the selection.
