The weekly list must be saved no later than 10.00 am on Thursday. If the trade item is still available on the first days of the week, but you already know it will be sold out on Tuesday, you can use an availability timer for this. The trade item will then automatically be removed on Tuesday;and vice versa, of course.If the trade item is not yet available on Thursday morning, but you already know that it can be picked again on Monday, you can also set this in the availability filter. The trade item will then be activated automatically on Monday.

The following component is explained on this page:

  • Set availability timer

Availability timers

How does this work?

Go to the menu on the left and click Supply > Direct Sales > Catalogue prices.

Choose a trade item for which you want to set the availability timer.

Set a time at which the timer goes off.

The timer does its job; it sets a trade item that was available to unavailable and vice versa.

Step by step

  • Click on the three dots next to the trade item to open the menu. Select 'Availability timer' from the menu.

  • A pop-up will appear on your screen. Enter the date on which the trade item will be available. In this case 2 December 2020 at 7.00 am.

  • The trade item has a green timer if it becomes unavailable at the selected time. The colour green is used because the trade item is available until the timer goes off.

  • The trade item has a red timer if it becomes available when the timer goes off. The colour red is used because the trade item is not available until then.

You have now set an availability timer.

You can change a timer at any point. You can also change the availability of a trade item manually afterwards by moving the slider.
