I want to change or switch a customers service mid-month, what is the best way to do that while calculating the correct pro-rated amounts for the difference?

Starting Emerald 6 it is only necessary to schedule change of service with appropriate change date within service menu of MBR. You will be prompted to re-invoice if it is necessary to correct any existing outdated invoices.

With Emerald 4.5.10 or later this is automatically done while saving a service. Simply answer yes to the popup box asking "This accounts service type has changed, do you want to automatically apply adjustments to account for this change?"

This can be accomplished in three steps. First close the service, secondly edit the service changing the accounts service type. Finally re-open the service. If Emerald is configured to pro-rate days on cancel a credit will be issued for the remainder of the month when you close the service, and a pro-rated charge will be created at the new rate when the service is re-opened.
