Lead contract payment schedules are what you will need to set up if you are using payment schedules in your BigSIS contracts. Lead contract payment schedules are designed to be tied to an academic year and will consist of the dates a payment will be due. This allows you to set up payment schedules based on a specific school year and thus when those payments are due during that school year.
NOTE: If you have not created lead contract payment schedules before, you will want to follow the steps below. If you have created payment schedules before you can save yourself a lot of time by copying your current payment schedules and editing the school year and dates associated with them. Skip to Copy Lead Contract Payment Schedules below for these steps.
