How to Add & Manage Clients

A suite of client management tools

Introduction

Upmind can keep unlimited records of your clients and store sets of emails, addresses and companies. The system is also extensible, so custom fields can be added as required.

Upmind is designed so that your clients can register themselves through your website, usually by placing their first order. However, you can also choose to add clients yourself.

Opening the Clients dashboard

  1. Log in to Upmind.
  2. Click Clients on the left menu.

The Clients page provides a broad overview of client activity with stats, charts, and lists. From here, you can explore details by clicking a link.

Upmind sends the client an email message with a verification link. You can track that client's activity on the Client overview page.

If the Allow login switch is ON, Upmind sends the client a notification email and verification link. If the switch is OFF, you can create a user but that person does not receive a notification email and cannot log in to your e-commerce site.

An email address is only required if you are giving them login access.

Disable login use cases

The disable feature can protect your business by blocking fraudulent clients from accessing your store.

This feature can also be used to record cash transactions. You could, for instance, create a client account but disable the login. When the client pays cash for an item, use Upmind to create a record and generate accurate sales reports.

Filtering client list

You can sort client names with filters.

  1. Click the Clients list menu tab.
  2. Click an option under the Quick filters heading.
