This program sets promotion dates. It first adds any missing titles to the BSMGR Database, then adds missing titles to your store's inventory. Finally, it sets the promotion dates and sale prices for your store's inventory. The most common use for this is to import Munce catalog promo items, sale prices & dates.
For stores who wish to create their own promotions, below are the directions for creating a file that IVPROMO can read in order to add promotions to the Promo tab in IVM.
Create a test file using the following information:
Quote, comma separated values. If a field is blank/empty, please leave at least one blank spaces between the quotes. In the example below, the "note" field is empty and has a single blank space. It also HAS to be in the following order as listed.
