This procedure is part of the process for creating a distributor preview or private event.
Before you begin
If the event you are creating an inquiry for will be tax exempt, ensure that a Tax Exemption Comp has been created in Cinema Manager > Maintenance > Sales taxes > Tax Exempt.
- Search for a company or contact.
- Select the appropriate contact.
If the company or contact is not listed, add a new one.
Verify that the contact details are correct.
If you are using CRM integration, the options to create or edit corporate contacts will not be available in Group Sales.
Enter the Event Name and select the Event Type.
If the event is taxable, proceed to step 10.
Select Tax Exempt and enter the Tax Exempt Number.
Note: If the company is configured to be tax exempt, the event will have already defaulted to the company's status and number. You can change this if required.
State in the Internal Notes field that the POS operator must manually apply the Tax Exemption Comp to the booking.
Select sites and dates for the event and click Add Bookings.
Alternatively, you can skip this step for the moment and save the event anyway.
Click Save & Continue.
Your event is now visible from the Group Sales homepage, with Inquiry status. You can return to it at any time to add more booking details.
