Much like Events, Promotions allow the forecasting engine more insight into your store's business. Now, when the engine creates a projection, it can factor in that Buy-One-Get-One-Free promotion on french fries you had last week!
To create a new Forecasting Promotion, select the CREATE NEW dropdown from the upper, right-hand side of the Forecasting Dashboard and select PROMOTION.
From the Create Promotion page, you are required to name your promotion, add a description, the date and time it will take place, the impacted items, and whether you want to add a percentage or dollar adjustment on it. The bottom of the page also allows you to select which stores or nodes will be participating in the promotion.
Once added, when on the Forecast Dashboard, you're able to scroll down to the Weekly Events and Promotions section to view the days which have Events and Promotions added.
Note: You're also able to select the + to add a new Event or Promotion for a selected date.
By selecting VIEW ALL EVENTS AND PROMOTIONS, you're able to select a range of dates to display all of the Events and Promotions within that range.
