Configuring Discount for Selected Date and Time
In Candela Nimbus, once you have decided on the duration (start and end date) for a particular discount, you can customize it further. You can also opt to make your discount operational on certain days or for a certain time range.
Customizing Time slot
If you want to keep the configured discount operational for all time within the selected time period, mark the checkbox ‘All Time.’
You may opt to set a certain time slot within which the discount becomes operational. For example, if you have configured a percentage discount of, say, 10 percent for a week and want to offer this discount only in the evening before closing, this is what you will do:
Uncheck the checkbox ‘All Time’
Select the time range in Start Time and End Time fields.
Similarly, you can also choose to make the discount operational on certain days within the selected date range.
Uncheck All Days checkbox
Select days by clicking Select Options link
Once you have configured a discount according to your requirements, click Save button.
The record of all saved discount campaigns will appear in list view:
