Tip #128 – How to Stop an “Upsell” From Displaying

Tip #128
How to stop an “upsell” from displaying.

As you may or may not know, you can have many different upsells displaying when you take an order.  Having too many though, can be counter-productive.

I was recently asked to explain how to stop an upsell from displaying.  Here is how:

Let’s say you want your employees to push “I Love You” mylar balloons during Valentine’s Day.

You should set it up like this:


This upsell will only be active between 02/08/2014 and 02/15/2014

If delivery date is outside that range, the upsell will not be displayed.

So if you want to stop an upsell from displaying, change the “Stop on Date” to a date that has already pasted.

Tip #127 – Improvement to Riminders Feature

Tip #127
Improvement to Reminders

Do you know that you can have flowerSoft send reminders to your employees?

Yes, you can. Read Tip #091

But now we have made the following improvement to the Reminders program.


We’ve added a “Frequency” field and a “Send Only On” field

This will allow you to indicate how often a reminder will be sent (once a year, every 6 months, every 3 months, every month, every 2 weeks, every week and every day) and what day of the week to send on.

For example, you can set a reminder to be sent every week but only on Wednesdays.  Or every month but only on Saturday.

The day of the week takes precedence over all the other settings.

For example, if you set a reminder to be sent every day but the also add that it should only be sent on Friday’s, the reminder will only go out on Friday.

I hope you find this improvement useful.
