2.1 What is a Dunning Type
Dunning Type stores default values for overdue days, dunning fee, interest rate and text blocks to be included. For example, a Dunning Type "First Notice" will not have any fees, but Dunning Type "Second Notice" will have a dunning fee and interest charged on the outstanding amount.
These are the statuses that are auto-assigned to Dunning.
- Draft: A draft is saved but yet to be submitted.
- Unresolved: The Dunning is unresolved when it is submitted but no payments have been received.
- Resolved: The Dunning is resolved when the outstanding payment has been received.
- Cancelled: A cancelled status is a cancelled Dunning document.
A Payment Entry can be created from a Dunning. It will be pulled together with the Sales Invoice details it is against.
