This App allows you to define 3 types of discounts:

auto break case

The Auto Break Case app provides the user with a prompt that allows them to break down an item from a master pack to a case and also to an individual item by changing the item numbers on a voucher and updating inventory with the correct quantities at that time. The app identifies identical items within the same style that have a case quantity specified (in Aux1 field) of 4, 6, 12, 24, or 48. The app then allows you to break one of the larger cases into a number of smaller cases by increasing the child item count by the case quantity field of the parent item. The parent item count is decreased by one in inventory. The child items can then be received on the voucher.

warm beer discount

This app discounts warm beer items by one dollar if they are manually selected in a grid for this discount. The description field is then set to say “Warm Beer.” For an item to be eligible for a warm beer discount, the Aux 6 field has to equal “Y” to denote that the item is a type that can receive this discount.
