[edit] Descriptions

Cron actions is MOR functionality which allows you to do some tasks at a specified time. Currently supported actions are these:

  • Change tariff (for Users and/or LCRs)
  • Change LCR (for Users)
  • Change provider tariff (for Providers)
  • Generate Invoice (for Users)



NOTE that currently only System Admin is allowed yo use this functionality.

[edit] Important notes on billing

MOR takes the call price before the call and uses it to calculate the final price after the call is finished.

Example: User starts a call at 9:58 PM and is talking for 5 minutes, you have an action which changes tariff at 10:00 PM. When call will be finished MOR will bill user using older tariff. If user starts a call after tariff change - he will be charged using the new tariff assigned for him.
