Please do not use special characters *, (, ), ?, $, and %.
Most fields are similar to the Customer and Supplier fields. There is more information about those fields here. There are some specific fields that will only appear for Branches, however, and these are explained below.

|- Head Office||Transactions from this branch type will not be included in the Retail Reports Dashboard.|
|- Warehouse||Transactions from this branch type will not be included in the Retail Reports Dashboard.|
|- Retail Branch||By selecting Retail Branch, transactions will appear in the Retail Reports Dashboard.|
|- Consignment||If stock that you own is with a customer on consignment, create them as a Consignment branch - see this article for more information.|
|Alternative GL Account/Cost Centre||Select an alternative account if you'd like your transactions from this branch to go to a particular General Ledger account in your Accounting Software.|
|Branch Locations||Enter your static Branch Locations here in the order that you wish them to appear in the Pick N Pack app. Please see Creating Locations within a Branch for more information.|
Make sure you log out and then back in for any Branch changes to take effect.
Yes. The address details populate information on receipts, so it's always a good idea to fill out these details.
You can't delete Branches if there have been any stock movements recorded against the branch. In that case, you can only make them Inactive; see the Deleting Contacts Help article for additional information.
In practice, there is little difference between Branch types, other than to organize your branches in an orderly way. The small differences are detailed above in the "Field Explanation" table.
We really appreciate your feedback.
