You can configure target loyalty for a generic loyalty program or cart-based promotion (Engage+) by following these four steps.

1. Set Offset Days

Set the delay between sales data and the data that appears in Capillary’s system. This helps in recording data properly, even if customers return products. 

For example, if a customer transacts on July 20, 2021, and Offset days is set as 5 days, the transaction data will appear on Capillary’s system on July 25, 2021.

To set offset days, do the following:

  1. Navigate to Organization settings and search Sales Targets.
  2. In Offset days, choose days for the delay in sync between sales data and Capillary’s system.

2. Add Target Group

Target group is a collection of targets that you can evaluate together for a common evaluation period. 

You can view and edit target groups displayed in the List of target groups

Active shows target groups that are currently functioning, Archives show all the deactivated target groups.

To add a new target group, do the following.

  1. In Target groups, click New target group.
  2. Name the target group.
    Target group name is unique, you cannot use the same target group name twice.
  3. In Select the store till to be used for points attribution, select the till code.

    Till is a mandatory parameter for point allocation in Loyalty. All points allocated on target achievement are tagged to the till you select. If this is not applicable for the org, create at least one till.
  4. In Target Evaluation Type, select your preferred frequency and duration for the target.
    1. Fixed calendar window: Tracks customers’ activities for a fixed time period irrespective of the customer’s joining date. For example, if the evaluation period is set from July 1, 2021, to July 31, 2021, and a customer enrolls on July 25, 2021, the customer’s activity is evaluated only for the seven days and is rewarded at the end date. (July 25 - July 31). 

      To configure a fixed calendar window, do the following.

      1. In Target Frequency, select the interval in which targets are evaluated.
        OptionDescription
        MonthlyTarget is evaluated on a monthly basis.
        QuarterTarget is evaluated on a quarterly basis.
        Half yearlyTarget is evaluated after six months.
        YearlyTarget is evaluated on a yearly basis.
        CustomTarget is evaluated for the entered number of days.
      2. In Evaluation Cycle, determine the period for which a customer’s activity is monitored.
        OptionDescription
        Period NameEnter a valid period name. For example, you can name the first period P1.
        Start DateEnter the beginning date for the evaluation period.
        End DateEnter the ending date for the evaluation period.
        Note: You can add more periods in the evaluation cycle by clicking Add period.
      3. Click Save.
    2. Cyclic window: Tracks customers’ activities starting from the first transaction date till the cycle window ends.
      To configure a cyclic window, do the following.
      1. In Target cycle start date, select the starting date of the cyclic window.
        The first transaction by the customer on or after this date starts the cycle.
      2. In Target Frequency, select the interval in which targets are evaluated.
        OptionDescription
        MonthlyTarget is evaluated on a monthly basis.
        QuarterTarget is evaluated on a quarterly basis.
        Half yearlyTarget is evaluated after six months.
        YearlyTarget is evaluated on a yearly basis.
        CustomTarget is evaluated for the entered number of days.
      3. In Recurring cycles for evaluations, select the number of times a customer’s activities are evaluated.
        12 is the maximum number of times a cycle is evaluated.
      4. Click Save.

Example of cyclic window

Cycle start dateCycle durationCycles

Customer A:

Customer B:

If org imports, a retro bill dated September 2, 2021, for a customer, then ideally the first cycle should start from September 2, 2021, to October 1, 2021. However, depending on the date of import the impact can vary and scenarios, where reward has already been given, might occur. Hence retro transactions do not impact the cycles.
