How do I Add a New Discount? (First Gen 2.0)


Add discounts to Qu in two easy steps.

  1. Create the desired discount
  2. Create a discount group and associate the discount to it
    • A discount group allows multiple discounts to be added to it and then applied to multiple items as opposed to manually adding multiple discounts to multiple items.
    • Adding menu items to the discount group

There are two different methods of adding an item to a discount group. If the items have already been created prior to the creation of the group, this is the method to be used. However, if the item is being created after the group, the group should be added as part of the item creation process.

Section 1: Creating a Discount

Navigate to the enterprise level or the store level to which the discount will be applied, go to the configuration section and select discounts, and click on the plus sign

  1. Discounts can be configured in many ways including by:
    • Check Title – The discount name visible on a receipt
    • Report Title – The discount name on visible in Qu reports
    • Amount – This can either be a percentage of the item cost or a fixed dollar amount.
    • Discount Category
      • Discount
      • Manager Comp
      • Coupon
  2. Is Item Discount? – Does this discount apply to the entire check or to a specific menu item.  Selecting yes will make the discount an item discount.

    • Select the location that the discount should be applied to
    • Select the order type
    • If the previously set percentage needs to be overridden enter the desired amount in the text box




Section 3: Adding Items to the Discount Group (Alternative Method)

  1. Click on the items section in the Discount group that was created.
  2. Click on the plus sign and search for the item that should be added to the group.
  3. Select the item and repeat step 2 for each item to be added.
