I'm guessing these are items for which you did not invoice. In my head, the scenario goes: You receive a registration form with payment. You need to record the registrant and payment. The end. If that is the case, you will need to use SALES RECEIPT. This will prove helpful:
As far as categorizing them - I would create a COA for each event. For example, if you hold multiple races, maybe COA:RACE and then sub them out by IL-Komen, KY-HeartAssoc
, etc. For each one you receive a registration/payment for, just select the proper COA. That way, you can run a report and see total income received for each individual race/event.
Good luck with your events!
Thank you so much! That was helpful and what I was thinking - definitely good to feel confident in that as a newbie!
