Setting the availability date range for a discount

For any discount, you can configure time-based availability criteria that controls when that discount is available for use:

  • One (and only one) date range. For example, an Oktoberfest discount is available from September 19, 2020 through October 4, 2020.

    Note that if the discount has a promo code with an effective date range, the promo code's start and end dates must fall within the range of the discount's Availability start and end dates.

  • All the days of the week or specific days of the week. You must select at least one day of the week. For example, a Happy Friday discount is available only on Fridays.

  • One or more hour ranges. For example, a Happy Hour discount might be available from 4pm to 5pm and from 6pm to 7pm.

You can configure any combination of these availability criteria. For example, you can configure only a date range but not the days of the week or the hours, or you can configure only the days of the week but not date or hourly ranges. If you do not configure any time-based criteria, the discount is always available, unless a promo code effective date range makes the discount invalid.

If the time is outside of the discount availability, then the discount button does not show on the Toast POS app.
