Live This can be used to set a Guest to NOT LIVE so that they are not returned as a set in Guest Marketing.
The most common use of this is when a Guest chooses to 'opt out' of future marketing efforts.
Company Account Choose this if the Guest record will actually be a 'Company Account' record. When this value is chosen,
the Guest is used to track 'Direct Bill' or 'Debtor Accounts'. A Guest set as a Company Account' is used
in a similar way as a normal guest, but the actual name that is placed on the Booking screen can be over-
written on the Booking screen so that the person from the Company is identified. By identifying the
Company Account, BookingCenter allows you to send invoices and statements. (See "Managing
Company Accounts (also known as 'Direct Bills' or 'Debtor Accounts')" on page xcvii for more
information.
