3. A choice can be made from three Count Method options on how the data will reflect in the 477 Form for Product and VoIP.

a) Count All Lines: will look at each customer and count each subscription as a separate entity (every subscription is added to the report)

E.g. 5 customers each with 2 subscriptions will report a count of 10

b) Count All Lines + Respect Quantity: for each customer their subscription is looked at but the qty of the subscription is counted

E.g. 1 customer with 2 subscription, one with qty of 3 and 4 respectively. Report will count of 7

c) Consolidate Similar Techcodes Into One: If a customer has multiple same subscriptions these will consolidate and show as one count

E.g. 1 customer with 3 same subscriptions will report count of 1

4. Minimum Amount

Default is zero. This means a product with an amount less than zero will not be included in 477 report.

It is possible to set different amounts for VoIP and product or keep same settings for both.
