When creating a new AR Account for a profile that does not have an AR Address attached to it, the profile address will be copied over into the Select AR Address screen. A new AR address with an AR Address address type must be selected (by highlighting the address and selecting the Select button) before advancing to the Setup Account screen. If the profile that the account is being created for already has multiple AR addresses attached to it that have not yet been assigned to another AR Account, the user can select one of the AR addresses from the list. After selecting or creating the address for the new account, the AR Account Setup Account screen appears.
When AR accounts already exist, then the AR Accounts lamp is displayed. Click on the lamp to see the AR Account Numbers that exist for the address and for which properties. See Indicator Lamps for details.
AR Addresses can be transferred from ORS to OPMS via a profile XML message. To accomplish this, the OXI HANDLE RESORT AR NUMBERS parameter settings are used to determine how to handle the incoming AR numbers.
When HANDLE RESORT AR NUMBERS is set to FULLOVERLAY, all received AR Numbers for the resort will get inserted or updated. For new AR numbers OXI will copy the primary address of the profile as AR address. Existing AR numbers will only get deleted if the ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLES parameter is set to N.
When HANDLE RESORT AR NUMBERS is set to MERGE, incoming AR numbers will only get merged with existing Resort AR Numbers.
When HANDLE RESORT AR NUMBERS is set to IGNORE, incoming AR numbers will be ignored.
