A partner in Splynx is basically a service provider or any sub-provider of your services.
The partners table shows a list of all Partners on the system with the number of customers assigned to them and number of online customers. If you click on each number in the Customers' column, the full list of customers associated with the Partner appears.
If it is a long list of customers and you have to check them by a particular status you can sort them in the top right corner of the page:
Another way to filter or search for customers who belong to the same Partner is by clicking on the Partner field in Customers → Search.
To add a new partner in Administration → Partner, click the Add button at the top right corner of the table:
You can also edit the partner's name by clicking on the Edit icon

You can set it up in Config → System → Company Information. In Company Information, select the desired Partner to work with and in the Partner percent field, specify the percentage for the Partner's commission.
After the commission has been set up, you will be able to check the amount paid to the partner in Finance → Invoices.
At the top of the window choose an appropriate Partner (with Period of time and Payment Status, if necessary) and below the list of Invoices you will see the "Totals" table, displaying total amount paid and the amount of commission for the partner.
