Assign a Master Plan Instance During Account Creation

This article applies to:Aria Crescendo

Overview

A Master Plan Instance acts as a container for billable and non-billable services. It can also be the parent plan of any number of supplemental (child) plans, or it can be a standalone plan that does not contain any supplemental plans. An account must have at least one Master Plan Instance assigned to it and a Master Plan Instance can be purchased multiple times.

As part of this process, you also have the ability to:

Assigning a Master Plan Instance to an Account

Getting Here: Click Accounts > Create New Account

During account creation, Master Plan Instances are assigned to an account within the Plans section of the Create New Account screen. 

Note: Refer to the Create an Account article for instructions on completing the sections of the Create New Account screen that precede this section.

Selecting a Master Plan Instance from the Master Plan drop-down loads additional fields related to the plan, allowing you to set the plan's status, select the desired notification method for the plan, apply coupon codes, as well as define the values of plan instance fields, among other options.
