[Please note that this article refers to an older version of the product and may be outdated. You can find the most recent guide here]

Coupons Lite is an application that allows implementation of Internet coupon campaigns. The Tenant, or possibly the Venue Manager, can create virtual tickets that end-users can get for free in order to take advantage of financial discounts or rebates for a product or a service.

An end-user who wants to take advantage of a campaign must:

  1. sign in to the Splash Portal (unauthenticated end-users are not able to get a coupon)
  2. access the Coupons Lite application and obtain the code for the wished coupon
  3. go physically to the Venue Manager who will validate the coupon assignment and will give the end-user everything to really take advantage of the promotion

More information about this application can be found here on our Cloud4Wi YouTube channel.

Control Panel management

By clicking the Manage button you can configure coupon campaigns for end-users. You can carry out a set of control and management actions such as:

  • Create new: create a new coupon campaign.
  • Check: validate the coupon assignment to an end-user.
  • Manage: perform some operations on an existing coupon campaign.

 

Creating a new coupon campaign

By clicking the Create new button it is possible to create a new coupon campaign. It is possible to specify the following information:

  • Campaign name: the name of the campaign.
  • Validity period: the range of dates where the campaign is valid.
  • Number of coupons: the number of coupons that can be instantiated. Can be limited or unlimited.
  • Product name: the name of the product or the service that we are going to promote.
  • Product description: a short description for the promotion.

Furthermore, it is possible to associate one picture to a coupon campaign. Any uploaded picture will be resized to 140x140 pixel.



Validating a coupon assignment

By clicking the Check button you can validate the coupon assignment to an end-user.
Every time an end-user gets a coupon, the system produces a coupon code (displayed in the screen and, when possible, sent via e-mail).
Then, the end-user can physically go to the Venue Manager asking, for example, for the real "paper" coupon. The Venue Manager has to click the Check button and verify if the coupon code is valid or not. If valid, all the details for the coupon will be displayed, and the Venue Manager can give, for example, the real "paper" coupon to the end-user.

By clicking the Manage button you can view the list of coupon campaigns that are currently present in the system. Each coupon campaign listed comes with its status, that can be:

  • Active: indicates a coupon campaign that is currently active and valid. This means that the current date is within the Validity period specified.
  • Not active: indicates a coupon campaign currently inactive, which will be active in the future. This means the current date is earlier than the Validity period specified.
  • Expired: indicates a coupon campaign currently inactive, which has been active in the past. This means the current date is later than the Validity period specified.
  • Coupons unavailable: indicates a coupon campaign currently valid, where all the coupons have been assigned to end-users. In this case, you can edit the coupon campaign and specify a greater Number of coupons in order to reset the status to Active.

For every coupon campaign you can perform the following actions:

  • Edit: this function lets you edit the following parameters for the selected coupon campaign:
    • Campaign name
    • Validity period
    • Number of coupons
    • Product name
    • Product description
    It is possible to change the uploaded picture, or add it if it was not previously specified.
  • Statistics: displays all coupons associated to the selected campaign, along with the following details:
    • Coupon code: the unique code that characterizes each single coupon.
    • Checked: if the coupon has been assigned, it indicates whether the assignment has been validated or not by the Check feature previously described.
    • Assignment date: if the coupon has been assigned, it indicates the date when the coupon has been assigned.
    • User: if the coupon has been assigned, it indicates the username for the end-user to whom the coupon has been assigned.
    • Email: if the coupon has been assigned, it indicates the email address for the end-user to whom the coupon has been assigned.
    • Phone number: if the coupon has been assigned, it indicates the mobile phone number for the end-user to whom the coupon has been assigned.
    You can export all statistics to a CSV file, by clicking the Export to CSV button in the page content of the Statistics page.
  • Delete: delete an existing coupon campaign. Please note that deleting a coupon campaign deletes all the details regarding the coupons and their assignment to end-users will be deleted too.

These actions can be performed by the Tenant and, if the Management is Differentiated and the Responsibility is assigned to the Venue, also by the Venue Manager.
