    1. Sales Office (& Payment Received At)

    Feature Description
    This feature is an extension of the existing functionality, where a user could attach a 'Sales Agent' along with a reservation (refer screenshot)
    Now a property/chain care create 'Sales Offices' under the account, and assign 'Sales Agents' to them. Please note the following about this feature:
    a. One Sales Agent can only be assigned to a Sales office at a time
    b. Sales office can currently be created only on request through back-end with the help of Support Team.
    c. A new section in Voucher named 'Sales Executive' is now created where the user can choose the 'Sales Office' from a drop down and a Sales Executive from a filtered list just next to it.
    d. Sales office shall now start appearing in Booking DB & Payment DBs, for analytics purposes. Future releases shall have Sales Office analytics built into Insight Product as well.
    e. Apart from adding a sales exec, for data analytics & revenue tracking purposes an important function that has now been released is the 'Payment Received At' in the payment section. Scenario which explains Sales Office & Payment Received At functionality An example where a chain of Hotels has multiple office spread across geographies, with a Central Reservation Office and multiple sales offices across different cities (note that this does not refer to Travel Agents but to Sales Executives of the Hotel Chain) In such scenario, the Central Office or Regional Sales Office can create reservations for any property, but also accepts payments (cash, cheque, draft) on behalf of the property. This reservation, although would reflect in the properties daily revenue, the cash/payment would only reflect in the name of the Sales Office. The feature primarily helps in Cashiering
    Other points to be noted about the Sales Office & Payment Received At functionality (i) Since the users are mapped to Sales Office in the backend, whenever a booking is created by a Sales Executive, the default Sales Office would be marked in the Reservation, along with default 'Payment Received at' marked as the Sales Office.
    (ii) The same implementation is done under POS as well.
    (iii) Each Sales office has a separate & independent series for Payment Receipts User Interfaces & Screenshots
    1) In this feature, if a property has sales office in say - Delhi and Mumbai, and multiple sales executives are working there. Now, Sales office name will show on voucher if voucher is created by the sale office executive and also sale office will show in payment if payment collected at any office.
