Application Features

Multi-language Translation of Client-facing Account Attributes (DEV-5531)

This feature supports multi-language translation of account fields and certain plan elements when creating a new account from a template. 

Note: To add a new locale option, refer to Create Locale Settings

Account Fields

When creating new account fields, translation hyperlinks are provided for Field Name and Description. These links open a window to define additional translations for the fields.  

Since the data entered directly into the form is saved as the translation for the client locale, the options in the translations window drop-down do not include the account locale. 

Getting Here: Click Configuration > Client Settings > Account Fields > New

Account Field names.png

Translation.png 

Account Field Allowed Values

The allowed values also provide translation hyperlinks.  

Getting Here: Click Configuration > Client Settings > Account Fields > Select an existing field > Allowed Values

Allowed values.png

Select the Account Locale in the Account Creation Template

When you create an account creation template, you select the account locale. This account locale determines the language of the account fields in the template. This locale also determines the language for the following plan elements in the template:

  • Master Plan
  • Supplemental Plan Name
  • Surcharges
  • Surcharge Rate Schedule
  • Inventory Items: Item Name and Item Description

Note: Translation hyperlinks are provided for these plan elements within the plan configuration (Products > Plans). 

Getting Here: Click Configuration > Client Settings > Account Creation > New or Select an existing template > Account Details

Locale Button.png

Expanded locale.png

  • The Default Value drop-down selections show the locales configured in Locale Settings.  
  • The Display parameter determines if the locale field displays in the account template. 
  • The Required parameter denotes the field as required or not in the account template.  
  • The Editable parameter determines if the locale field can be edited by the user on the Create New Account screen.  

Functionality to Specify Plan Rollover in Days Added (DEV-5939)

When rolling over a free or discounted plan to a paid/full price plan, the free or discounted period can now be set to last a certain number of days, weeks, months, quarters or years. When the trial period expires, the plan rolls over to the full/paid plan and a prorated invoice can be generated.

Note that client parameters governing whether billing dates are reset (e.g., from a free to non-free master plan, on the assignment of the first non-free supplemental plan) will be honored with plan rollovers.

After the billing date, the plan will bill normally (i.e. subsequent invoices will be for the full billing cycle).

Getting Here: Click Products > Plans > New > Complete tabs > Rollovers
  -or-
Getting Here: Click Products > Plans > select a plan > Rollovers

Plan Rollover.png

The drop-down for Rollover Plan now provides the option to choose a unit of day(s), week(s), months, quarters or years.

For more information about adding a payment gateway, refer to Payment Gateways.


Support for Boleto Bancario (Brazil) Through Global Collect Integration (DEV-6210)

This feature supports Boleto Bancario (Brazil) as a payment method as part of the Global Collect integration. This integration only supports one-time payments, and not recurring payments.

Note: These payments are not authorized immediately, and can take many days to be processed. Funds are transferred into the Aria client account depending on the payment processing policies of the third-party payment provider.

For more information about adding a payment gateway, refer to refer to Payment Gateways.

Enhancement of Service Credit Applicability to an Array of Services (DEV-6428)

This enhancement improves the usability of the user interface when creating a service credit, and adds the ability to specify applicable services for the service credit.  

In addition, when creating new non-subscription offerings (NSOs), you can specify if the NSO allows service credits. 

To Specify Applicable Services for the Service Credit
