How to Configure Customer Portal Settings - LOU® - Powered by Evosus

Your Customers can access their account information and stay connected 24/7 with the Customer Portal ! You can send your Customers a link that they can use to access their Customer Statements, pending Orders and Estimates, Purchase History, Appointments, Invoices, Balance Due, and Communication Preferences. They can use this information to make payments online, confirm upcoming appointments, and print copies of the documents for their records.

When you send a Customer Statement, Estimate, Sales Order, Work Order, or a Schedule Confirmation Message, your Customers will be able to access the Customer Portal from that link as well.

WAIT! In addition to these settings, you need to make sure you configure Customer Messaging.
