Night Audit Pre-Audit CheckList and One Button Audit (Desktop) 🎥
To make sure that the day closes without any gaps, the night audit in Visual Matrix goes through a unique checklist to ensure all information that will become part of the daily report is accurate.
After making sure all the arrivals are checked in and all departures are checked out, there are 3 main reports to confirm. Those reports won't be found once the audit is run. Until then, there is still time to correct a room rate, a wrong posting, or even post an adjustment.
Each step needs to have its "Status Completed" to be able to use the "1 Button Audit". Dues outs and No Shows will automatically change to completed once all check-ins and check-outs are completed. every other reports (just) need to be viewed. If all the steps are not completed and you click the one-button audit, a warning will popup informing you that the audit cannot be run until all steps are completed.
