Table of contents

Configuration

Configure the policies and policy levels in Invoicing  > Configuration > Credit Control > Credit Control Policies. You can define as many policy levels as you need and you can even define levels with a negative number of days to run notifications days in advance. You must set on which accounts are applied every Credit Control Policy under Accounts tab.

Configure a tolerance for the Credit control and a default policy applied on all partners in each company, under the Accounting tab in your company form.

You are able to specify a particular policy for one partner or one invoice.

Usage

Menu entries are located in Invoicing > Adviser > Credit Control.

Create a new "run" in the Credit Control Run menu with the controlling date. Then, use the Compute Credit Lines button. All the credit control lines will be generated. You can find them in the Credit Control Lines menu.

On each generated line, you have many choices:

  • Send a email
  • Print a letter
  • Change the state (so you can ignore or reopen lines)
  • Mark a line as Manually Overridden. The line will get the ignored state when a second credit control run is done.
  • Mark one line as Manual followup will also mark all the lines of the partner. The partner will be visible in "Do Manual Follow-ups".

Once your lines are properly set up, go back to the "run" and click on Run channel action to massively generate and queue communication emails or letters for all linked lines.

Then, use the Communications smart button to see all email communication processes that have been created and follow them.
