Overview

Calculation zones provide a method for linking a product to a calculation type.

Additionally, this connection defines the calculation’s base value (the first number in a calculation) through the product, based on the appointment’s suburb.

ASAP retrieves this value through the following process:

  1. When performing a calculation, ASAP will identify if the appointment’s suburb has any zones linked.
  2. If there a zone is associated with the appointment, the system tests for any products linked to the zone.
  3. If these products are also attached to the appointment, ASAP will retrieve the zone’s value defined in the product’s calculation tab and utilise it as the base value for the product’s calculation.


There are two primary components of a zone configuration

  1. The calculation zone - Provides the link between a suburb and the product’s base value
  2. The calculation zone type - A method of grouping calculation zones

Configuration

  1. Add a calculation zone type

    Zone types only require a description, this description is then used to group zones and as the selector when adding zones to a product.

    i.e. You can select a zone type on the product management screen, any zones belonging to this type are then linked to the product.

  2. Add a calculation zone

    This process includes defining the zone’s type and the calculation types that it will apply to

  3. Add the zones to the required suburbs

    This step links the calculation type to a suburb through the zone.

  4. Select the product’s zone type for each calculation type

    This step links the zone to a product

  5. Set the products base value for each zone

    This step provides the base value for the calculation
