Admin area updates
HostBill Admin Area provides you with at-a-glance view on all crucial information and can be easily customized and reorganized, depending on your personal preferences. There are various languages available for admin panel and now you can define the default one (in General Settings -> Other -> Admin portal). For this setting to be visible you need to have at least two admin languages enabled in Languages Settings section.
Today’s release comes with a bunch of other improvements in admin area. First of all, it is now possible to notify clients in bulk by selecting them on a listing.
Another new option enables to add admin-only description for single client and/or client group discount setting. The description is visible only for staff members and can include some additional notes and explanations. Discounts in HostBill can be set „global” – for all products and services or for selected products, product categories or product components and can be either fixed mount or percentage. The whole discount configuration is available within Discount section in Client Group settings or in client profile automation settings for single clients.
In regards to billing and invoicing, admins can now push manually generated invoice for service into account’s invoice queue.
We also added information about IP address related to client profile changes. The IP is available with other details in client profile section.
