Re: Emailing bills - How do you make it work?

Hi noestervemb , I think OD, now, do not offer the option to automate the monthly bulk emailing of the statements. 1- You can contact OD and ask them for an option to automate it, or create a feature request 2- Minh, a programmer in Australia, at http://www.mopensoft.com, for the last 2 years, did m...

Re: Hide or change (NoBillIns) on statement or account?

A turn around

Do not check the box next to "Do not Bill Ins"
Do NOT create an insurance claim for that procedure, (NoBillins) will not show on the statement. And it will show your fees only.

But it will show always in the report of 'procedures not billed to insurance".
