The following instructions explain how to set up a discount applied automatically based on a contact or organisations field value marked as true for example a member checkbox.
Arlo allows you to add fields to for contact and organisation records where needed. Yes/No and checkbox fields added can be used as criteria for discounts.
- A graduate discount if a contacts Graduate yes/no field equals Yes.
- A membership discount if an organisation's Member checkbox is ticked.
Member and graduate fields are not default fields - these are examples that you can add to your own platform. Once a field has been added, you can place it on your website registration forms. If the field is checked during registration, or it is marked against the contact/organisation internally, Arlo will pick up the field value is true against and apply the discount.
Arlo can only use it's Boolean custom fields and not user created custom fields for these discount criteria. You'll find two Boolean fields (Yes/No options) in your contact and organisation fields menu that can have their name edited and be used.
