    Promotion Bundles

    A new feature, promotion bundles, is available at 2017.5 and allows you to sell a group of items together under a promotion without setting up a package for them. The feature works with the combination of a promotion and promotion choices. When an item that is part of the bundle is ordered under the promotion and non-blank choice, all items on the promotion with the same choice value are automatically added to the order. Likewise, deleting one item from the order also deletes the other items with the same promotion choice.

    To enable this feature, at the offer level in the setup dialog of the Promotion Items tab, set the Promotion Item Handling control to “Promotion Bundle.” This will then activate the feature across all items of the promotion. Turning this feature on will disallow …

    Advantage Software: Cancel Order Button at MSTFST

    During order entry at MSTFST, users may use the Escape button during any phase of the order to cancel out of the order. However, depending on what phase of the order they are in, the user must press Escape multiple times before being able to cancel out of the order.

    At 2015.0, you can set a control on the script that exposes a Cancel Order button, which is accessible during any point in the order. When clicked, this button will bring the user back to the MSTFST list frame.

    Advantage Software: Multiple ARPCAR Applications

    The ARPCAR view allows you to add payment by selecting an invoice with an amount remaining. By setting the ARP option DFPAYAMT to “Y” (available at 2014r1), the payment amount will default in based on the invoice’s amount due. With this option set to Y, you can also select multiple invoices and enter one payment to be applied across them. The steps involved are as follows:

    Set the ARP option DFPAYAMT to Y.

    From the ARPCAR list frame, select multiple invoices via keyboard controls (usually shift + click to select multiple invoices, ctrl + click to select a range of invoices).

    Invoke the Add Payment action, which will bring up a payment dialog box with the total amount due from the selected invoices defaulted in as the payment amount. The payment amount is open so it can be adjusted. …

    Advantage Software: Billing Promotion Codes on Payments

    In order to see how well a billing promotion did, you need to have your customer service reps enter the billing promotion code when entering the payment. You can enforce entry of a billing promotion code during payment entry at the view and in the Sequential Payment Upload process (ARP192) using the ARP option BLPRMREQ. But perhaps the CSR doesn’t always have the billing promotion code readily available when they are entering the payment. How can you successfully record the billing promotion code on the payment?

    ARP Option BLPRMASN

    The Billing Promotion Assignment option is used to set a keyword for your CSR’s to enter during payment entry. During payment entry at the view and in the Sequential Payment Upload process (ARP192), use of this keyword in the Promotion Code field causes the …
