Allows time-limited customer discounts to be set up and used

Promotional discounts can be defined for specific groups of customers and dates.

The customers to whom the promotional discount(s) apply may be selected by price band, customer discount group or an analysis code.

When the promotional discounts are active (ie. between the start and end dates), the discounts will be applied in SOP in the same way as standard discounts.

This allows special offers to be set up in advance, and applied for a specific period and then removed.  It also means that both special prices and percentage discounts can be used for the same customer and stock item.
