Use accounts to charge back postage for printing envelopes to departments or clients.

You can run reports to show how much you spent on postage over given time periods.

The Envelope Printing application uses a multi-level account format. It is different from the Parcel Shipping cost accounts.

– Run reports to show how much each department uses.
– View and email reports from your device.
– Get information such as postal classes used and the cost of postage.

When you use Envelope Printing accounts to track your postage usage, use sub accounts and sub sub accounts to analyse your usage within an account. How you create accounts depends on your needs.

You can create accounts in single or multiple levels. For example, you can divide a top level department (account) into two additional sub sections (sub accounts and sub sub accounts). The Envelope Printing accounting structure can have up to a three level hierarchy:
– account (top level of the hierarchy)
– sub account (next possible level of the hierarchy)
– sub sub account (last possible level of the hierarchy)

Important: Only the lowest level of the account hierarchy is chargeable. This means that the lowest level of the account has the transactions applied to it.
– Account with no sub accounts – When you create an account with no sub accounts, you charge postage to that account. This is because the account does not have sub or sub sub accounts.
– Account with sub account or sub sub account – When you create a sub account or sub sub account, you charge postage to the lowest level (the sub account or sub sub account).

The Envelope Printing accounting structure is based on three levels: account, sub account and sub sub account. Your account names can contain up to 75 characters for each level plus separators (227 characters total).

Depending on your requirements you can structure your accounts in single or multiple levels. For example, you can divide a top level department (account) into two additional sub sections.

Account

When you create a top level account, you can charge funds and pieces to that account. This is the account charged for postage because it does not have any subordinate (sub or sub sub) accounts.

Example:
Account – Engineering

Sub Account

If you create sub accounts for a top level account, they become the lowest level in the account hierarchy and identify the departments that are charged for postage.

Example:
Account – Engineering, Sub account – Software;
Account – Engineering, Sub account – Industrial Design

Sub Sub Account

If you create sub sub accounts for sub accounts, the sub sub accounts become the lowest level in the account hierarchy and identify the departments that are charged for postage.

Example:
Account – Engineering, Sub account – Software, Sub sub account – Software Testing
Account – Engineering, Sub account – Software, Sub sub account – Software Design
Account – Engineering, Sub account – Industrial Design, Sub sub account – Graphics and Layout
Account – Engineering, Sub account – Industrial Design, Sub sub account – User Friendly Testing

When multiple account levels are created, the accounts are linked (account-sub account, or account-sub account-sub sub account). They become a set and are treated as one separate account, with one account number and one password. The top level account number and password are rolled down to the first sub account that is created. When you add a second sub account to this top level account, you create a new linked set of accounts with a different account number and password.

Note: Only the lowest level of the account hierarchy is chargeable. This means that transactions can only be posted to that account.

You can view or edit the account name, code, description, status or password for all of the accounts sub accounts and sub sub accounts on your system.

Note: Once you charge postage to an account, you cannot change the account name or code. Also, you cannot delete the account.
