Interface

MagnusBilling’s interface is made with ExtJS, and is composed by a lateral menu which has all the modules listed with their respective submodules. A main area, where all the modules are opened at, with active and inactive tabs. A suspended menu with the language options, change password, about and leave.

Button bar

MagnusBilling is a modular system, each menu or submenu corresponds to a module. All the modules are identical in their structure. Each module is composed of one bar of tools composed by this buttons:

Modules buttons bar

  • Add Button.
    Adds a new record to the module.
  • Edit Button.
    Edits one record, only clicking on top of a register, already open from the formulary to edit.
  • Delete Button.
    Selection one or more records and clicking in Delete, will be requested the confirmation, when confirmed the record will be deleted. The delete button have a property called All, found when clicked on top of the arrow besides the button, this property deletes all the records
listed in the module. A very useful tool to delete a large amout of data.
OBS: MagnusBilling databank uses InnoDB with foreign key, this links every data, therefore is not possible to delete data that are already linked with others. EX: Is not possible to delete an client, if this client made an purchase. Will be necessary to delete all the records linked to this client to be able to delete this client.
  • Batch Update button.
    This button is fundamental to the server efficiency. This button is used, as the names suggests, is to update a large amount of records at the same time, making it easy one taks that would be impossible to be done manually in modules with a lot of records, with the tariff module that can easily surpass the 100 thousand records. It’s use is pretty simple, search the records that you want to update and click the Batch Update button, will open a formulary with all it’s fields blank, just change the fields that you want to update, letting the rest of them in blank, and then press save, this process can take a few seconds, and will update all the records. Batch Update button have a property called Selected, found when clicked on the arrow besides the button, this property will only update the selected records.
  • Print button.
    This button generates a Excel file in CSV format of the selected records.
  • Print button.
    This button generates a PDF file of the selected records.
  • Clear Filters Button.
    This button clears used filters.
