Holiday Occasions (Cont.)

How can we tell if an order sent in December with “HOLIDAY” in the occasion field was for a customer celebrating Christmas or for one celebrating Chanukah or for one celebrating Kwanzaa? Other than going to the order and reading the enclosure card message, you can’t.

How do we avoid sending a customer an occasion reminder reading “Christmas” when the customer celebrates Chanukah or Kwanzaa?

This is how.

Go to the Manager’s menu and then to System Information and then to Operating Defaults. Press “U” to update the record and navigate to page #21 (as of this writing) or the page titled “Other Settings” and if not already set to “Y”, change the setting shown below to read “Y”.

What setting this to “Y” will do is force flowerSoft to display a list of holidays with dates equal to or greater than the delivery date of the order.

You can then select the correct holiday from the list displayed.
