Import Filters for Promotions

When defining certain filters, users have the option of importing a list of comma-delimited values from a text file. This feature enables the Headquarters office or other central location to create the files and distribute them for use by individual locations when creating promotions, helping to ensure consistency and correct values. This section provides information about how the filters should be defined.

String value, Example 1:
AAA,BBB,CCC
String value, Example 2:

AAA
BBB
CCC

Store Selection, Example 1: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11
Store Selection, Example 2: 001,002,003,004,005,006,007,008,009,010,011
Notes

  • Import goes by Store Number, not Store Code.
  • Make sure you select a Subsidiary before importing a Store Filter. The Store List and Store Numbers are updated in the Promos module depending on which subsidiary is selected.

Coupons (with expirations)
When filtering a list of coupon codes with expiration dates, the filter is applied in alphabetical and then numerical order: couponcode,yyyymmdd

Example:
AAA,20171231
BBB,
CCC,20171231
DDD,20171231
