A couple of crucial improvements of Rate Notification service have been added to the this version.
From now on, if any rate table (child) in the system has the assigned parent rate table, clients will be notified through Rate Notification service about changes in both tables.
If child and parent rate tables both have the rule for the same code, priority is given to a child one. However, if the rule in a child rate table has expired due to End date field value, and a parent rule is still active, notifications will regard the latter one.
The following major features have been added to DID Management section:

Throughout the whole section, namely in the section table, on a DID creation page and during DIDs import/export, Notes field is added. It allows user to leave a detailed clarification or any additional information regarding a certain DID.
When selecting rows and columns during DIDs import, now you can specify not only DID columns, but Operators, Status, After Hold, Tag columns as well. Check out our User Guide for more information.

Since it’s considered a good practice to regulate the process of adding new payments and charges, the Author column has been added to the system. Whenever a new transaction (irrespective of its type) is added manually by a user through Transactions section in JeraSoft VCS or Refill Balance page on JeraSoft Client Portal, his/her name is displayed in the respective column. In case of automatically generated transaction, however, this column is left empty.
