  • Status - options to set are: New, Active, Inactive, Blocked (some functions are available to Active customers only, e.g. for the client to make use of services. Also, it is necessary to customer to be inactive in order to delete them Inactive → Save → Actions → Delete).

  • New (Not yet connected) - status given to customer recently created or added to the system;

  • Active - status given to customers to allow the system to take their profile into account and make feature available;

  • 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 the deactivation (grace) period. This status is given to customers who will no longer use your services. In case the customer's account has Inactive status it can be deleted.;

  • Blocked - status given to customers who failed to make payments for services or to simply deny access to the client while taking their profile into account;

  1. If the customer has an unpaid invoice (e.g. an invoice was created in Billing day date) and the customer doesn't pay the invoice before the date of Billing due, the customer status will be changed to Blocked, but the service (e.g. Internet service) is still be active;

  2. The invoice status in period from Billing day to Billing due date is unpaid, from Billing due to Deactivation period and after Deactivation period the invoice will be considered as overdue;

  3. If the customer with Blocked status pays the overdue invoice, the customer's status will be changed to Active;

  4. If the customer with Blocked status doesn't pay the invoice before the date of Deactivation period date, his status will be changed to Inactive (doesn't use service). And after he decided to pay the invoice, the status would become Active;

  5. If the customer has Inactive (doesn't use service) status, his service (e.g. Internet service) will be disabled (with Start date = Billing day date and End date = Deactivation period date) and the duplicate of the previous service will be created with Stopped status, its Start date = the date of Deactivation period. And after customer decided to pay the overdue invoice, the status of duplicate service would become Active, its Start date would be changed to invoice payment date.


  • Billing type - the options are Recurring payments, Prepaid (daily) and Prepaid (custom);

  • Recurring - type of billing following a full period in a fixed cycle and paid for either by prepay or post-pay;

  • Prepaid(daily) - type of billing charged everyday and paid for in advanced;

  • Prepaid(custom) - type of billing set to a custom period and paid for in advanced;

  • Full name - full name of the customer;

  • Email - email address(es) of the customer, multiple emails supported and separated by comma ",";

  • Billing email - email address of the customer only for the billing correspondence (the multiple ones are supported separated by comma ","). The current field has the next logic: 1) if the billing email field is empty - all emails are sending to email(-s) from main "Email" field; 2) if there is the email in the "Billing email" field - all billing notifications will be send to this billing email and all other emails will be send to email from main "Email" field. As a result, Splynx doesn't duplicate the billing notifications to email(-s) from the main "Email" field; 3) in case was added only the billing email ("Email" field is empty), customer receives only the billing related letters, all others letters won't be send by Splynx.

  • Phone Number - phone number(s) of the customer, multiple numbers supported and separated by comma ",";

  • Partner - partner that the customer belongs to;

  • Location - location that the customer belongs to in the listed locations;

  • Street, ZIP Code, City - Physical address fields of the customer;
