Create Customer

Click each tab for field explanations:

  • Name: A name or unique identifier for each customer.
  • Channels: Set the maximum number of channels (essentially a channel is a live call).
  • Flow Speed: Set the CPS (Calls Per Second) for the customer.
  • Status: The customer's status:

    Active: The customer is active and allowed to pass calls.

    Inactive: The account is disabled, no calls will complete

    Pending Approval: New signups are listed as Pending Approval. The customer cannot pass calls or become active until this phase is completed.

  • Debit Limit: How much the account can do into the negative (typically only relevant for post-pay customers).

  • Minimum Payment: Set the minimum payment a customer can add to recharge the account.
  • Tax: Tax is added as a percentage that is charged on top of costs. (UK = VAT; US = Sales Tax)
  • Currency: Select the currency from the dropdown menu. Note that you won't be able to change the account currency once the account is created.
  • PayPal Email: The email address associated with the customer's PayPal account. (This is relevant when using the IPN API which allows customers to make payments directly through PayPal instead of using the Customer Portal. See our API documentation for details on PayPal IPN.)
  • Website: The customer's website address.
  • Portal Access: Users can turn Portal Access to Yes (on) or No (off). Selecting No will restrict user access to the Customer Portal. Since everyone uses the portal at this time, this should always be set to Yes.
  • Tags: Use this to add meta-data identifiers to a customer. If a customer is created using a template from Global Routing, this will be the tag configured in the template.
  • TOML: This is a data storage mechanism for configuration, similar to INI files. It allows you to create advanced customization to set values, etc, for Script Forge to reference later.
  • Reseller: Associate the customer to a preset Reseller Group (see Create Groups for more details.)
  • Invoice Schedule: Specify frequency for invoice generation.
  • Invoice Due Days: Set the allowed number of days past the due date that the invoice can go unpaid.
  • Address: Complete the customer's physical address.
  • Approved CLI's Only: Force the customer to log into the Portal and enter their CLI number (call-from number). This generates a test call with a code which the customer must enter into the portal. Once complete, their CLI will be added to the system.
  • Email Verification and/or Mobile Verification: Used to force the customer to go to the portal for verification. (This is important to select when you create a customer manually.) If the customer doesn't verify these, they won't be able to dial.

Attention

Mobile messages will be sent globally, but there are some reports of issues with SMS being delivered to numbers in India. These messages are sent on the Twilio network, so ConnexCS can only deliver what they deliver.

These are arbitrary notes that can be entered onto an account at your discretion.

Save Options

  • Save and Continue = Exit the Customer screen
  • Save and Stay = Save the customer, but stay in the screen (helpful when adding multiple Customers at a time)
  • Delay and Save = Select a time to elapse before saving the Customer, delaying the setup or change.

Configure Customers

Once a customer has been created, click on the customer name to view details and provide additional configuration. For documentation on that configuration, navigate to the sub-section on the left:
