Automatic Paper Invoice Fees

Powercode allows you to automatically assess a predefined fee for any customer who has their invoice preference set to ‘Paper’ or ‘Both’. It costs time and money to print, stuff and mail out invoices every month and there is an easy way to pass that burden on to the customer. If you would rather not do that work yourself, our third-party partner MailXtream will completely automate the process for you.

From ‘Config’ at the top navigation bar move to ‘Billing & Payments’ and select ‘Invoices’.  From there set the dollar amount you would like to be applied to an account for every month it has ‘Paper’ or ‘Both’ Selected for the invoice preference. Below is a video walkthrough.

Custom Reports

Despite having 77 pre-built reports, dashboards and other business intelligence metrics already available in the ‘Reports’ tab, sometimes you just need more data. Luckily Powercode records nearly everything that happens in the system. So if you’ve ever caught yourself thinking “it would be great to see the data on this type of customer for this service with these characteristics” we can give that (or just about anything else you can think of) to you through our ‘Custom Reports’ feature.

From the “Add New Custom Report” button at the top of the Custom Reports’ header a MySQL query can be entered with the choice between a standard report or a report with an address range or date picker. Then anytime you or an employee need to access that data, just click on the report that was created.

You’re welcome to write your own reports in MySQL or you can call or email support and we are happy to build the report you need for you!

As you’re staring your ISP everyone does everything and people jump in where they can. However as you begin to scale and bring on additional employees, specialization occurs and the more access users have the more problems can happen. You may not want a support agent to be able to apply any credit they want and there’s also areas of our software that many employees probably don’t need to see like the financial dashboard. We have built granular permissions the admin can set so users can access or see only what they need to do their job but not be in areas they don’t belong.

To use permissions, navigate to the ‘Config’ tab, then ‘System Configuration’ and click on ‘Permissions’. The best thing to do is find a group that has the most similar permissions set for the user(s) then select ‘Clone’ from the ‘Select an action’ dropdown on the right. Name the group and add the desired users, note that a user can be in multiple groups and will be held to the most restrictive setting applied to them. Then click through each tab and select whether the user can see a function (switch from ‘none’ to ‘view’) or impact it, like applying a credit or taking entering a card number (change to ‘edit’). Also be aware that there are functions nested under every arrow that become selectable once the first function is set to ‘view’ or ‘edit’. To see it in action watch the video here:

Web User Check In

Need a simple time clock solution for your employees? We have one built right into Powercode! Once enabled, whenever a user logs in it starts the clock in the upper right hand corner which runs until the user logs off. There’s also the option to automatically log out a user if they’ve been idle for a pre-set duration. Then reference the reports that show the duration, last activity and number of page loads for all users for a given day. Or view the more traditional report showing the same data for a given user over time.

To begin using this feature, from the ‘Config’ tab navigate to ‘System Configuration’ then ‘System’. On the bottom right under ‘Services and Controls’ change the ‘User Check In Required’ dropdown to ‘On’. After that set the ‘Idle Time Before Check Out’ and whether or not the running time clock should be displayed. From there the two reports live under the’System Reports’ heading on the ‘Reports’ Tab.
