When do we use this?
Proration is a permission that can be given to an admin user. It allows them to sell a permit to a user that is valid for a shorter portion of the active sales window and have the system adjust the cost of the permit accordingly. A good example is a student parker starting to park a vehicle halfway through a year or semester.
Note - There is a video after the instructions that illustrate the instructions.
In Lot Admin and Pricing go into the lot you wish to setup for Proration.
On the Standard permit tab select This lot can be prorated.
This lot is now set for proration.
