Prior to Nov 2018, there were other plans, TG-4 and TG-24 - all assets on these plans were be moved to the TG-PPM Plan. Generally, the cost to the reseller will be lower on TG-PPM compared to TG-4/TG-24. TG-Classic, TG-Pro, and TG-PPM are all plans within 'Regular' TG Organisations. ALR is it's own Organisation type.
Assigning plans to assets
- Go to Admin -> Asset Billing Plans. The user will need the "Billing Plan Manage" permission to access this and manage billing plans.
- Select the assets for which you wish to change the billing plan.
- Click change billing plan and set the plan
Notes for Billing Plan Changes
Billing plan changes will take effect at the beginning of the next cycle (start of the next month) - the current plan will be used for the remainder of the month.
The "next" plan, which will take effect next month will be shown in brackets, as <Current Plan> (<Next Plan>). Eg. TG-Classic (TG-PPM). The exception to this rule is newly created assets. Any changes made to the billing plan within 7 days of the asset's creation will take effect immediately.
You can view the current message count in the Asset Billing Plan page, Admin -> Asset Billing Plans. This gives the count for the current month. TG will count records only if the asset is set to TG-PPM. There are no overages on this plan, but the count is useful in determining which assets may be better off on the TG-Classic plan.
PPM maximum cost
The PPM plan does not have a maximum cost limit. An asset on a PPM plan that is poorly configured may incur a greater cost than the TG-Classic fee. This is left to the reseller to manage and configure their devices appropriately. Click here for a PPM calculator
