Before a dues rule can be applied to dues invoices on your Novi website, you'll need to connect them to a QuickBooks Online Item, and also mark them as Active.

This applies to all new Dues Rules - whether you are just about to launch your new Novi website, creating a new member type after launch, or updating the dues rules for an existing member type - you'll need to toggle the Dues Rule(s) from Draft to Active as quickly as possible.

Important Note: Renewals will not run and new members will not be able to join for a member type if that member type's dues rules are in Draft mode. Read more here to learn about how Draft dues rules affect operations in Novi.

Setting Dues Rules to Active

Updating your dues rules is very simple and the steps can all be done right on the backend of Novi. Once you've created a dues rule, follow the steps below to connect your dues rule to the proper QuickBooks item and make it active.
