Creating a new Sales Window
To create a new Sales Window click NEW
The Create New Sales Window window appears. Enter the information for the new sales window.
In this example, we are creating a yearly permit sales window with the following information:
- Start Sale Date of December 28th 2019 (When the permits will be available to purchase)
- Active Start Date of January 1st 2020 (What date the permit becomes valid)
- Sale/Active end date of December 31st 2020 (What date the permit expires)
|Sale Start Date||Active Start Date||Sale / Active End Date|
|The day that the permits are on sale and users can begin to purchase permits in the lots that use this sales window.||The day the permits become valid(Usable, Scannable ,Swipeable ,LPR/Handheld Reads,etc.). This allows you to sell your permits in the Sale Start Date field but not allow them to be valid until a certain date.||The official end date that permits can be sold until or can be active for in this sales window. Remember Active differs from Sale.|
Click Create Sales Window to save your information. It will now appear in the list of possible Sales Windows.
In the monthly sales window example below:
Permits with this Active Sales window can be purchased any time between Nov 16, 2019 and Dec 31 2019. These permits would be valid from December 1st 2019 to December 31st 2019.
Activating the Sales Window
Once the sales window has been configured it needs to be made active. To do so, click on Active Sales Window to view the list of current and future sales windows.
The list of sales windows appears. Notice the new sales window we created is now in the list but not yet activated.
Select the radio button adjacent to the sales window you wish to activate and click on Update Current Sales Window.
When to Activate a Sales Window
A sales window can be activated well in advance of even it's set start date. For example once the initial sales for a yearly sales period dies down an admin can set up and activate the following year's sales window. It will only come into affect once the Sale Start Date is reached. Additionally permits bought in the sales window will only become valid as of the Active Start Date.
