The status of your customers plays a significant role in the system with regards to services and accounting. The status of a customer influences whether the system will account for the customer's services in a billing perspective and whether the customers service are active, suspended(blocked) or stopped.
Here are descriptions of the different customer statuses for you to understand how this influences the system:
- New (Not yet connected) - This is the status given to newly added customers by default.
- Active - This status allows the customer access to their services and the system accounts for their services based on their Billing settings.
- Inactive(Doesn't use services) - This status stops customers services and the system from accounting. It is the status given to customers' automatically when they've reached there Grace period. This status is given to customers who will no longer use your services and enables the deletion of customers
- Blocked - This status suspends customers services due to non-payment/failed to make payment on time, while system still accounts for customer services in a billing perspective.
Automatically generated login's and password's are created based on randomized characters. These characters and the pattern can be modified to your preference.

It is possible to personalize a customer's parameters with the Additional field function in Config → System → Additional fields. These are custom fields you require for any given informational data within the system for your customers.
