2015-3Q: Billing: Nominal Codes
Some enhancements have been made to the nominal codes in SIMPLer. Nominal codes are codes that can be assigned to a product, and are commonly used to group product sales by type, for transfer to an accounting package. For example, if Code 101 is used for "Internet Services" and code 102 for "Equipment purchase", each product in this category can be tagged appropriately, and reports pulled for these types.
The following enhancements have been added to the process. A number of new options were added to the Settings - Modify WISP page ( Fig. 1)

The following options have been added as per Fig. 2:
Enable Alternative Nominal Codes: If set to on the operator can add an alternative nominal code, which will be the nominal code used for the product if it is a negative value. For example if a negative invoice is raised, the alternative nominal code will be used. An example is shown in Fig. 3.
Enable Nominal Codes: If set to on, the nominal codes will appear on the modify product page as shown in Fig. 3.
New Credit: Default Nominal: Allows operators to define a default nominal code for any new credit added.
New Product: Default Alternative Nominal: Allows operators to set a default value for all alternative nominals (i.e the nominal code used for a product if it is a negative value)
New Product: Default Nominal: Allows operators to set a default value for nominal codes when adding new products to SIMPLer, to make sure nominal codes are never accidentally left blank.
