New Layout for Statements
We have introduced a new layout style for Statements called the "By Subscription" style. This style groups the statement information in chronological order according to invoice, which also includes extra columns such as the quantity and unit price. It can be used instead of the more transactional-style original layout introduced a few weeks ago. This style, which was called "Detailed", has been renamed to "By Transaction" to clearly define it vs. the "By Subscription" layout. The "Summarized" layout remains the same.
Override Prices and Tiers on Subscription Products and Purchases
It is now possible to override both the prices and the tier levels on products within subscriptions as well as on their own. This is a great time-saver for catalog maintenance, as now you don't need to create new products every time the tier levels or prices change. The override functionality is available for all types of tiered pricing available in Fusebill. You can also change the type of tier (e.g. from stairstep to volume) at the subscription level.
Note that the changes will be applied to a current draft invoice, if one exists, or else at the time of next recharge otherwise.
As part of this feature, the Product pricing page has been given a new, more organized layout, grouping fields by their category and purpose to increase readability.
Support for Accounting GL Codes
Accountants, rejoice! Fusebill now supports the mapping of General Ledger (GL) Codes to all types of Fusebill products. You can create and manage a list of valid GL codes and then attach those GL codes to one or more products in your Fusebill catalog.
These GL codes will be included on the Earned & Deferred Revenue and Reconciliation reports, as well as in their corresponding CSV downloads. They can also be returned via the API for mapping to 3rd party systems.
Small Updates and Enhancements
In addition to the major features, we are always working on small enhancements to hopefully make your Fusebill experience that much better. Here's a list of things we've added in recent weeks.
- The MRR report will now accept an optional date range for exporting to CSV.
- The MRR report's styling has been updated to a "stock-chart" style which supports hover-over to get point-in-time values for all of the MRR metrics.
- If custom fields exist on a product in a plan with a single frequency, these custom fields will now be copied to any additional frequency(ies) you create in the plan.
- When adding a new payment method to a customer, the customer's billing address as set in their Fusebill account will be automatically pre-populated into the address fields on the new payment method. These fields can, of course, be edited before saving the payment method if you wish.
- When adding a coupon to a subscription, you can now choose from a dropdown of available coupons rather than having to type in the coupon code. Only active coupons are included (though no pre-validation of whether this coupon is applicable to this subscription is done - this will be validated on update).
- You can now edit the "service dates" which appear on a draft invoice to represent a date range that is different from the billing date range. Note that these do not impact billing at all - they are simply labels that offer more flexibility in logically separating billing periods from service periods.
