The reason we have Fixed and Month-to-Month memberships is to have separate categories for invoices. Having those two types of memberships makes it easier to differentiate between membership plans and gives you the ability to issue invoices separately for each type of membership.
The difference between the two categories is that Fixed memberships are for a specified amount of time, e.g a year, while Month-to-Month memberships recur every month.
When you're creating a contract in OfficeRND after you sign the contract the memberships for resources (doesn't apply for Plans) that are created are automatically set to Fixed.
Note: Memberships created by contracts that are set to Fixed cannot be edited or terminated without editing or terminating the contract itself.
Usually, Fixed memberships are used for Contracts, e.g for Private Offices. You can find more information on the different types of Contracts here.
If you don't use contracts you can find an article explaining how to manually set up a membership here.
You can issue separate invoices based on the category of memberships by following these steps:
- Go to Billing.
- Select Invoices.
- Click Bill Run.
- In the field For you can specify the type of membership for which you wish to generate the invoices.
