Description: In this topic you will learn how to add monthly budgets to authorizations. A monthly budget is derived from an authorization, but it is not the same thing as the Monthly Max. Monthly budgets are based on an algorithm and may allow a client to exceed 100% of their monthly budget.
*Please note: To enable Monthly Budgets fields on an authorization, custom fields for Monthly Budgets must be created in the Custom Field Definitions Setting.
