2014-3Q (v001): Enhancements to Customer Grouping

Some new enhancements were made to the grouping feature (See here for the original feature details) in SIMPLer.  

1) It is not an option to pull financial reports by customer group.  See the Invoices - Totals Reports section in SIMPLer, and fig. 1-2 for more details.

2) Similarly, the aged debtor report can be narrowed down by customer group.  See Invoices - Aged Debtor Report, and fig. 2-1 for more details.

c) The following Settings can be customized for these groups.  Remember to click "Update" if you make any changes.  The "Default" option means that the group will follow the same settings as set globally for all customers under Settings - Modify WISP.
  • Specify how this type of customer will be charged when purchasing extra data on the End User Portal. (See Fig. 3-1)
  • Decide how the settings will be for when a customer receives notifications/gets disconnected once an invoice is overdue. (See Fig. 3-3)
  • Decide how the settings will be for when a customer receives notifications/gets disconnected once they have exceeded their traffic limit. (See Fig. 3-4)
  • Customize the emails that go out to this group of customers.  See here for a full list of variables and instructions on customizing emails. (See Fig. 3-5)
