Reference codes eliminate the logistics and worry of managing multiple accounts for a single client. For example, if a client has multiple locations, you can create a reference code for each location to sort invoicing and eliminate the need to create and manage multiple accounts for one client.
To begin creating a Reference Code, click the gear icon at the top right corner of the portal.
Next, click the "Company Configs" tab, and then click "Reference Codes"
You’ll see three checkboxes at the top of the Reference Codes section: "Enable Reference Code", “Allow Free-form Typing”, and “Require Reference Code”.
You can enable up to 4 reference codes at once. Enabling a reference code allows you to select additional reference codes when placing an order.
If Allow Free-form Typing is checked, it will allow your users to create custom, one-time reference codes on the order screen. If this item is not checked, the reference code dropdown on the order page will act as a search field for users to find and select previously created reference codes.
If “Require Reference Code” is checked, users will be required to select a reference code on all future orders. If the box is unchecked, reference codes are no longer required to place orders.
There are three options at the bottom of the reference codes section. “Download CSV Template” downloads and opens a CSV template for you to enter multiple reference codes at once. “Upload via CSV” is used when you want to upload multiple reference codes at once from the downloaded CSV template. “Add Reference Code” allows you to enter individual reference codes directly from the portal.
Clicking the "Add Reference Code" button automatically displays an empty field for you to enter the new reference code name. Enter the new reference code name and click "Save".
Your Reference Code is now available for use on the Order screen!
