Previously we covered how to create payment plan templates and apply them to profiles to create student payment plans, but if you really want to bring a student payment plan to life then you need to record transactions, for this will bring to your attention which payments have been made and when, if they're overdue, et al. Recording transactions will aid with managing payments and draw this cycle to a close!

Please note that presently FULL FABRIC doesn't support integration with any payment gateways to automatically record transactions in the portal and tie them to their corresponding payment plans, although that'll be a reality in the near future. Meanwhile, transactions have to be added manually, for which we designed a very simple workflow to make this feature a piece of cake! 🍰
