How to report on transactions for third party accounts

There are a few different reports that show transactions for third party accounts. If you need to see debits and credits (like in a student-charging cash-accepting environment) you will use the Account Statement report or perhaps a Transactions report. Otherwise the regular Usage Report will suffice.

Summary usage report for prints/copies/scans/faxes

This report will show you the total amounts billed to each account for a particular period. Note that it excludes telephone calls.

  • Open PDReports.
  • Navigate to Reports > Usage Reports > All Usage Reports > Grouped by Account Group.
  • Click the Filter Account Groups tab.
  • Tick the Filter account groups checkbox.
  • Tick any third party account groups for which you would like data (e.g. Default Account Group). This will exclude any transactions billed to User or Department accounts. You can search for an account group by entering some of the characters in the Search for text box.
  • On the Data Options tab, tick the Include 2nd level group checkbox.
  • From the Group by drop-down, choose Account Code or Account Name, depending on which heading would be more informative for you. For example, if you are simply entering amounts into an accounting system you would choose Account Code. Then each amount would be displayed next to the account code. However, if you would prefer account names, then choose Account Name.
  • In the Report Type frame, you can choose whether you want detailed or summary information. A summary report will show totals per Account. A detailed report will show every transaction with the description that includes the document name for print jobs. A detailed report could potentially be very long. You may want to filter the report to only show transactions for a specific account. Skip to the next section to filter the report.
  • In the Time Period frame, choose the period from which data must be retrieved in the Period drop-down. If you want to pick your own dates, choose Custom.
  • Click Open Report.

Detailed usage report for a specific account (print/copy/scan/fax)

  • Open PDReports.
  • Navigate to Reports > Usage Reports > All Usage Reports > Grouped by Account Group.
  • Click the Filter Account Groups tab.
  • Tick the Filter account groups checkbox.
  • Tick any third party account groups for which you would like data (e.g. Default Account Group). This will exclude any transactions billed to User or Department accounts.
  • On the Data Options tab, tick the Include 2nd level group checkbox.
  • From the Group by drop-down, choose Account Code or Account Name, depending on which heading would be more informative for you.
  • In the Report Type frame, choose Detailed.
  • Choose time period over which data will be displayed in the Time Period frame.
  • Click Open Report.

Usage report for telephone calls

  • Open PDReports.
  • Navigate to Reports > Usage Reports > Pbx Calls > Grouped by Account Group.
  • Click the Filter Account Groups tab.
  • Tick the Filter account groups checkbox.
  • Tick any third party account groups for which you would like data (e.g. Default Account Group). This will exclude any transactions billed to User or Department accounts.
  • On the Data Options tab, tick the Include 2nd level group checkbox.
  • From the Group by drop-down, choose Account Code or Account Name, depending on which heading would be more informative for you.
  • In the Report Type frame, choose whether you want Summary (totals per account) or Detailed (show every phone call).
  • In the Time Period frame, choose the period for which you would like data. To choose your own dates, change the Period drop-down to Custom.
  • Click Open Report.

Account Statement Report

This report is only used where accounts have credit transactions as well as debit transactions. For example, a printing shop may have accounts for customers who need to deposit cash into their accounts to ensure they have sufficient balance for printing.

  • Open PDReports.
  • Navigate to Reports > Account Statements > Account Code Statements.
  • Choose the time period in the Statement Period frame.
  • Click Open Report.

Transactions Report

This report is also only used where credit transactions occur as well. It is used mainly to reconcile the amount of cash accepted and recorded by administrative users. However, it can be useful to summarise credits and debits per account over a period.

  • Open PDReports.
  • Navigate to Reports > Financial Reports >Transactions.
  • Choose Summary in the Report Type frame.
  • Choose the time period in the Time Period frame.
  • Choose Account Code in the Top level group frame.
  • Click Open Report.
