Permit Editor Walkthrough


The Facility Permit Editor is a powerful tool that allows you to create reservations, adjust reservations, bill out permits, and more! This article will help you navigate through this module in your CivicRec system. 

The Facility Permit Editor can create over 100 reservations and bill out over 200 reservations. If you reach 100 or more reservations when you create the permit or bill out over 200 reservations, Background Jobs will automatically initiate which allows you to perform other duties while the CivicRec System creates or bills out your permit.
