At 5:48 AM today, I realized that 247Toolset needs its own accounting system.
That is a complexity I hadn't anticipated. For now, it's fine as is, but to take it where it needs to go, managing a ledger of accounts is critical to managing payments received.
I do love a challenge.
This came about because the fundraising module needs to manage an invoice schedule for pledges, and it does.
But when people make payments, they sometimes do so with inexact payments - either over or under. Tracking that, and adjusting the invoice schedule, will require an accounting system.
Plus, as the payment processing module comes online, clients will be able to process payments of various types - such as paying for an event - and that needs to be managed in a similar way.
One foot in front of the other...
