The Price List Evaluation Entity allows you to give granular, multi-entity definitions as to which customers should receive what prices for products. The definition of these evaluations is query based. Once you have set up all your queries, the system will evaluate each customer record when they are created or updates are made. The Price List field on the customer record will be updated automatically based on which query the customer meets.
2. Select a Price List or Create a New One.
Click on the record you want to edit or click +New to create a new price list.
3. Fill in or Edit Price List Fields.
Name -- The name of the price list. (This name will display on the contact record, product set up, and on registration fees on the portal.)
Start Date -- If this price list is temporary you can set a start date for when this price list is in effect. If the price list is permanent no date needs to be set.
End Date -- If this price list is temporary you can set an end date for when this price list will expire. If the price list is permanent no date needs to be set.
Currency -- This should default to your default currency set in the system.
Parent Price List -- This will link the price list as under another price list. Most price lists will not have a Parent Price List.
Customer Type -- Select Contacts or Accounts
Evaluation Order -- Order in which a customer is evaluated for the price list. If a person may fall into the query for multiple price lists, this determines the order in which one should be evaluated (1, 2, 3, etc.) For example: if the person fits the query for non-members, then they should receive non-member price list first, even if they fit the criteria for other price lists too.
5. Edit an existing evaluation or create a new one.
Click on the record you want to edit or click +New to create a new price list evaluation.
6. Fill in the required fields and save.
Name -- Give the Price List Evaluation a Name
Price List -- This should automatically populate with the price list you started from. It links the record to the price list.
System Query -- A link to the system query record. This determines who is eligible for the price list.
Customer Type -- Select Contacts or Accounts.
*You may have multiple price list evaluations, but generally you only need one, or two if you have an evaluation for both contacts and accounts.
8. Enter the criteria that will determine if a customer is eligible for this Price List.
This is a simple example to identify non-members. If you can access the field from the advanced find query you can use it in a price list evaluation query.
*You may need to select the "Details" button on the top navigation bar in order to edit the query.
