Event Type Forecast

From the main menu, select Setup > Configuration > Catering > Event Forecast Maintenance to display the Event Forecast Maintenance screen.

Event forecast figures can be attached to each Event Type for different date ranges. It is then possible to enter amounts for different active revenue types per date range for each event. These forecast figures can be based on the number of attendees, as would be typical for food and beverage events, or they can be entered as flat amounts, which would be likely for function space rental and miscellaneous other services. These forecast figures will automatically be applied to an event when it gets booked within the date range for which the figures are valid.
