How the billing works

  1. The billing cycle starts on the first day of the month and ends on the last day of the month.

  2. Your invoice for the current month will be generated on the 5th of the following month.

  3. Adding a new requester, even on the last day of your billing cycle, will be included in your current invoice.

  4. Removing a requester during the current billing cycle will only impact the pricing on your next billing cycle.

Configuring Splashtop Work From Home

Configuring the Splashtop service item

To perform client-level billing, you need to have a service item associated with the Splashtop WFH add-on. Selecting a service item is a prerequisite for adding a subscription item to the respective client.

2. You will be taken to the Service item page where you can add a new service item. Fill in the details as shown below and hit save.

Adding clients and requesters

Once you add the service item, you now have to associate clients and requesters to start billing.

  1. To add clients and requesters, click the +Client button.

2. Choose the client you want to add from the drop-down list and select the specific requesters within that client for whom WFH should be enabled.

3. To include this subscription item in the contract for this particular client, please check the provided checkbox. This checkbox will not be available if no service item is selected.

4. Once all selections are made, click Save.

5. You can see the current billing amount, revised billing amount, and the list of all clients for whom you’ve enabled Splashtop WFH here.

6. To view or edit the details of the subscription item within the contract, click on "Manage item".

7. You can either choose to use Integration Usage or Custom as your Quantity type. If you opt for Integration Usage, your clients will be billed at the end of every month.

8. To add/remove requesters added under a client click on the “Edit Icon” beside each client. You will be taken to the requester list, where you can add or remove access for the users of your choice.

⚠️IMPORTANT: Billing for the selected users will occur at the end of the billing period. Once saved, charges are irreversible. Even if some requesters are removed immediately after saving, charges will be applied for that billing cycle.

Initiating remote sessions from the requester Portal

  1. Within the requester portal, if Splashtop WFH is enabled for that specific requester, then a “Remote” button will appear in the Assets tab as shown below.

📝Note: When a requester is associated with multiple clients, their remote access privileges are limited to those clients for which they have been granted Splashtop WFH authorization.

2. Requesters can simply click this button to initiate a remote session.
