Onboard New Members


This help article will help you add a new customer either as a company or an individual member. In OfficeR&D you can create company records, individual members, and company team members. Individual members are usually freelancers and members that do not belong to a company.

Tip: If you have a list of existing members, we can import it in OfficeR&D for you. Head over to the Import Members tutorial for more information.

Add Memberships, One-Off Fees and Invoices

Open the profile page of the members - a company's individual member. This is where you add their memberships, one-off fees, and invoices.

  • Click Add Membership to assign a reoccurring membership for a private office, desk or a service.

Note: When the added membership starts, the system will label the member as an 'active' member. The membership plan will be added to the member's regular recurring invoice each month.

  • Click Add Fee to assign a one-off charge such as a key deposit or printing services. The fee will be added to the first invoice issued after its purchase date and will not be added to regular recurring invoices.

Once a member has memberships and one-off fees added in their profile, you can raise and send their first invoice. 

  • Click Add Invoice and populate the Issue Date, Due Date and the period of the invoice:

 Tip: If you want to charge fees immediately and prorate the first month, open Settings/Invoicing and make sure you have set up your prorate and billing segregation settings to your preferences. Read more.
