Ordering in Version 4

Understanding orders

Offers, products and packages - an overview

@order

For a given subject placing @order on a layout will list all package codes in all orders for that subject

Example

Three package codes are scanned for a particular subject - PK1, PK2 and PK3. These packages each contain a single product - an 8"x10", 5"x7" and a 4"x5" layout respectively. Subsequently another order is placed for the same subject - PK6, a sheet of wallets.

Placing a text box with @order on any layout for this subject even if that layout is not ordered will display:


[PK1] / [PK2] / [PK3] / [PK6]

The fact that @order can be used on any layout for the subject makes it useful for printing products such as packing slips. A packing slip layout with @order need not be included in any package but simply be 'ordered' for a subject in Point and Click Mode. The paacking slip will list all packages in all orders for the subject.

@package

Placing @package on a layout will display the package code and package description as defined in tsAdministrator that resolved into this layout.

Example

Continuing the example above, package PK2 has a description (or name or title) of Package 2. Placing @package on the 5"x7" layout will display:

[PK2] Package 2

To display just the package code, [PK2] use @packagecode.

To display just the package description use either of @packagetitle, @packagename or @packagedescription.

@product

Placing @product on a layout will display the product code and product description as defined in tsAdministrator

Example

Continuing the example above, package PK3 includes a product that is the 4"x5" layout. In tsAdministrator this product has a code of 45 and a description of 4x5-normal. Placing @product on the 4"x5" layout will display:

[45] 4x5-normal

To display just the product code, [45] use @productecode.

To display just the product description use either of @producttitle, @productname or @productdescription.
