Section overview

Code deck is a list of destination codes, each with its corresponding name and country it represents (optional). Code deck is by far one of the key elements of any Rate Table and is used pretty much throughout the whole system (sections like InvoicesPackagesLCR Lists, and so on). By having multiple code decks, you can freely operate with different names for the same codes and change them in real-time.

The section is presented in the form of a list of all existing code decks in the system. The table of code decks consists of the following columns:

IDCode deck's identification number
Deck NameName of a code deck
ResellerList of resellers corresponding deck was assigned to
CodesTotal number of codes presented in the deck

Functional buttons/icons presented in the section are as follows:


Allows to create a new code deck

Allows to manage an existing code deck on a list

Allows deleting a code deck from the system. Requires confirmation

Creating a New Code Deck

To create a new code deck:

  • Click the New Code Deck button
  • Fill in all required fields of a pop-up window (see screenshot below)
  • Click OK

Subsequently, a new code deck will be added to the general list in the section.

Managing Code Decks

To manage your code deck, left-click on the deck's name or  edit icon opposite the deck on the right. The opened pop-up window consists of 3 tabs: List of Codes, Import Codes and Export Codes (see screenshot), where you can perform operations pointed out below.

Adding Codes

In the List of Codes tab, click the New Code button to add a code group to your deck. The pop-up window contains the following parameters (see screenshot below):

Code DeckName of the code deck. Auto-filled by the system
CodeNew destination code
Code NameDisplayed name of a code group
CountryCountry the codes in the current group will belong to

To manage navigation between thousands of codes on the list, you can always look for the necessary code using a Search box (see screenshot).

Deleting Codes

You can either delete each code separately by clicking the  delete icon opposite corresponding code on the list or delete all codes at once by pressing Mass Delete button (see screenshot below).

To verify mass deletion, click OK in a pop-up window (see animation below).

Importing Codes

Not only can you add codes to the lists manually, but also import them from a file. The whole import process can be logically divided into two steps:

The first step is to go to the Import Codes tab (screenshot below) and fill in the required fields. After selecting a file and specifying all additional fields, click the Process>> button.

File ProcessSelect File to Import
Select an import file by clicking the Choose File button
Fields Delimiter

Specify a delimiter symbol. Possible options are:

  • Autodetect
  • ,
  • ;
  • Tab

By default, the Autodetect option is chosen.

Import ProcessDeck Update Mode

Specify the code deck update mode. There are three possible modes:

  • Import only not existing codes
  • Import all codes (update existing)
  • Import all codes (purge code deck first)

By default, Import all codes (update existing) mode is chosen.

On Errors

Define what to do if inconsistency or error was found in the importing file:

  • Import correct rows and show all found errors
  • If errors are found, abort import and show all errors

By default, the Import correct rows and show all found errors option is chosen.

During the second step, the system will recognize the file and display the first 17 rows. Then you need to select the header for each column. In case you don't need some rows, you can easily skip them by checking boxes opposite unnecessary rows in the Skip column (see screenshot). To abort the importing process, click the Return button, and you will be redirected to the Import Codes tab. To finish importing, click Import (see screenshot).

After you click Import, the system will start the importing process. When the progress bar reaches 100%, your import is done. Congrats!

Knowledge Base Tip

See what happens if your file contains the Country Code column.

Exporting Codes

This feature allows you to export the content of a code deck to a file. To initiate export, do the following:

  • Go to the Export Codes tab (screenshot down below)
  • Specify a delimiter symbol in the Fields delimiter field and a first CSV file row as a title row by marking With headers row checkbox (optional). 
  • Click OK, and a CSV file will be downloaded to your computer.
