You can reach the PC CADDIE's general settings window under Setup/Program Options/Options.
Find below more details about each tab:
The tab General allows you to make the PC CADDIE settings for the change of the year. The default value is „31“ days. Accordingly PC CADDIE recognizes the new members 31 days in advance. Similarly, the withdrawals are considered 31 days before the actual resignation date, and no longer considered for card orders, accounting, etc.
Consider the following illustrative example: You want to prepare all the invoices for the new year on the 4th of December: December 4 + 31 days ⇒ January 4.
PC CADDIE already recognizes on the 4th of December the new members with a starting date up to the 4th of January, and includes them into the „All Members“ group. In addition, all withdrawals with a resignation date up to the 3rd of January of the following year are no longer included in the „All Members“ group.
For example, for a financial reporting in December it is usually sufficient to choose the preset PC CADDIE filter „All Members“. If the turn of the year is not set to „31 days“, or if you would like to create invoices in November, you have to define a separate group of people, appropriately setting the members' entry/exit date to a later date. Please consult the Persons group for more details.
Before you start the contribution assignment for the following year in December the current year, you should consider the following: in the previous example, the turn of the year is set to 31 days, with the date 4th of December. You have to consider articles that are associated with the members' age (which is usually the case for young people)? in this situation you should start the Adjusting age groups before allocating the items.
The function that new member numbers are allocated to the new members is activated by default.
This feature is not enabled for Switzerland.

Clicking the button Setup format of telephone numbers opens the following windows:
Here you can choose in which format PC CADDIE should save your numbers.
If the option Activate check up and option standard is checked, the phone numbers are automatically changed into the appropriate format as soon as you enter them.
The field Example shows how PC CADDIE automatically formats the inputted number (0241-4774956) into the desired format (+49-241/4774956).
It is convenient to separate the telephone extension numbers with dashes; in this case, if you want to add a fax number you only have to type-in the extension, and PC CADDIE will fill-in the rest.
A prerequisite to printing a list of people with the corresponding distances to the golf club is that you download the spatial data to PCC. Please select the option Load geodatas for all persons, which gives you the possibility to download the spacial data for all the persons as well as for all the golf clubs to PC CADDIE.
Note that this function may take a long time to complete, depending on the number of personal data and Golf Club data contained in PC CADDIE.
More information about geodatas can be found under Distance data.

The subsequent options allow you to choose the proper representation:

You also have the option to print the club name only for the club members, so that secondary members appear with their HCP leading club in the lists. Choose With homeclub members just this name: for the field Club name for members.
