A common reason an order might be placed under the wrong customers name is that both customers have the same phone number listed in thier customer profile.

When an order is placed online, an email is sent containing the order and customer details.
If you receive an order email but can't find the matching quote in Adilas, check the customers User profile in WordPress.

Locate the "Adilas Customer ID" in the "Adilas Customer Data" section. If the phone number matches another customer, this customer ID could be wrong.

To find out, copy the "Adilas Customer ID". Go to the Adilas Quick Search and choose "Customer" (or "Patient") from the menu. Paste the "Adilas Customer ID" you copied into the search field and click "Go". Adilas will pull up the customer details associated with that customer ID.

If the search returns the wrong customer details, the "Adilas Customer ID" will need to be corrected in WordPress. To do this you first need to locate the correct customer ID. In Adilas, perform a search for the correct customer. Once located, copy the customer ID. Then paste it into the "Adilas Customer ID" field in WordPress and select "Update User" at the bottom of the page to save.
