Auto Generate Customers

“Auto Generate Customers” is a part of the Evolynx Web Admin. This page is accessible by “Customers” menu. It is designed to help you generate multiple Customers/Login IDs. This feature will be useful to generate pre-paid cards. For example, you can generate thousands of Voice over IP (VoIP) calling cards just by selecting some options.
The idea behind this operation is to use a “Serial Number” which will be incremented by 1 for each new Customer (or calling card). A new Customer and up to 2 Login IDs and random passwords are created for each new Serial Number. You can also choose to generate random Login IDs (to be used as PIN of your calling card).
