Discount reason codes are entered on the point of sale when a discount is processed so that the manager or administrator can report on why different discounts have been processed.
To create a reason code in TRIMS:
- Log into TRIMS and go to “promotions” and then “promotions overview” (1):
- In the window that appears, right click and press “new promotion” (2):
- Enter a ‘Name’ value, this will be the reason code that appears when processing a discount on the point of sale. In ‘Description’, type “Manual Discount”.
Unless you integrate TRIMS with our Retail Accounts package, ‘Link Code’ can be left blank, otherwise - enter your RAS discount code.
Select the “manual” option from ‘Type” and press ‘OK’
- The reason code will be sent to the point of sale in the next build of the PLU
You can build a PLU by going to ‘Inventory’, ‘Explorer’, ‘Maintenance’ and ‘PLU Build’ (3):
