Edit and manage customers

Keep track of your customer's sales from the customer contact record. Each record has summary of the customer's balance and a list of all transactions on the Activity tab.

Select a contact from the Contacts page to open their record and work with these tabs.

Edit a customer

  1. From Contacts, select the customer from the list

  2. Change the required details of the relevant tabs. Choose the edit icon next to each section to make changes.

Things to consider

  • Contacts are linked to their addresses. If you delete an address, any contacts associated with that address are also deleted.

  • Once you enter trasnactions, you can't change the Currency. If the customer is set up with the wrong currency, then make this record Inactive, and set up a new contact record.

Summary details

The top of the page is a summary of the key information about customer's account. This shows you details about the total sales and the main contact details. It also shows whether the customer is Active or Inactive.

How we calculate the numbers

The number of transactions that make up each total shows in brackets.

To work out the total sales value we add up all sales invoices and cash sales (money in), and then deduct the total value credit notes and refunds.
