Overview

A calculation modifier group is a method of grouping modifiers such that configurations group will apply to all modifiers within.

Additionally, when grouped, all modifiers within the group will have their multiplier and modifier values summed into single figures which are then applied to the calculation. Utilising this functionality, a group can effectively represent a bracket in a calculation. See the calculation overview for an example of this implementation.


Adding a Modifier Group

  1. Navigate to the Calculation Modifier Group Management screen through Advanced Configuration [A-K]Calculation Modifier Groups
  2. Fill the configuration options
  3. Select Add Calculation Modifier Group

Updating a Modifier Group

  1. Navigate to the Calculation Modifier Group Management screen through Advanced Configuration [A-K]Calculation Modifier Groups
  2. Select the Calculation Modifier Group
  3. Update the configuration options
  4. Select Update Calculation Modifier Group

Configuration Options

Configuration Description
Calculation Modifier Group ID A system generated identifier
Name A description of the group
Valid for Calculation Types A list of calculation types where this group’s modifiers will be applied
Valid for Product Categories A list of product categories whose products, if linked, will have this group’s modifiers applied
Mandatory Checking this option will force all modifiers within the group to be applied to any job which meets the group’s criteria, even if the modifier is not linked through a question answer.
Max Count The maximum quantity of modifiers in this group that can be applied to a job, if more than this value are linked they are filtered through the settings in Max Count Select
Max Count Select Used to determine which Calculation Modifiers will be used in a calculation when more than the number specified in ‘Max Count’ have been linked to an appointment. For example, ‘Lowest’ will picked the first max_count Modifiers with the ‘Lowest’ Multiplier and Modifier values (with Multiplier taking priority over Modifier in the comparison)
Min / Max Multiplier Determines the maximum and minimum multiplier values for modifiers within the group, if calculated above / below the modifier will be capped at the set value
Priority Determines the order in which calculations are groups are applied within the calculation type
Min / Max Modifier Determines the maximum and minimum modifier values for modifiers within the group, if calculated above / below the modifier will be capped at the set value
Cfc ID A deprecated feature, still in use in some systems but has been replaced by the Product Categories configuration option
