V3 Create a Bulk Price Update

The Bulk Price Update feature allows you to update the prices for your Client's active recurring or Package Jobs. The feature will first need to be enabled under User Roles & Rights. This feature will update the price for the selected master Job for the Client. Only non-dispatched future visits will be updated.

Warning: Currently it is not possible to undo a Bulk Price Update. However, you can decrease rates in bulk.

  1. Navigate to Settings > Bulk Price Update.
  2. Click Create Bulk Price Update in the top right of the screen.
  3. The Create Bulk Price Update dialog will appear.

  4. Fill out the fields as needed. Fields with an asterisk (*) are required.

    Important: At this time, we highly recommend you create a unique tag for each price increase. You will need this tag to find clients who were a part of the bulk increase but received an error. If a client received an error, they will not receive the tag.

    Field Explanation
    Update Name Name of the price update. This is what will appear in the audit trail on the master jobs that receive the update.
    Schedule Date Use this field to schedule the Bulk Price Update for a future date. It will default to today's date. If scheduled for the future, it is possible to cancel the update from the list screen.
    Update Type Choose to update by a percentage or a flat rate dollar amount.

    Note: If updating a Package by a flat rate, the amount entered will be spread out evenly among each round. For example, a $10 price increase for a Package with two rounds will increase each active round by $5.

    Percentage/Flat Rate The amount by which you want to increase or decrease the service rate. Percentage updates will only increase or decrease Services and Packages with a rate greater than $0. 
    Increase or Decrease

    Increase to raise the price or decrease to reduce the price.

    Rounding Rules Round up to the nearest dollar, round down to the nearest dollar, or do not round. For example, if you choose round up and the price comes to $12.02, then it'll round up to $13.00.
    Product Type Choose individual recurring services or packages.
    Services/Packages The Recurring Service or Package to be updated. Recurring Services are those scheduled using Master Schedules or Custom Schedules. Packages are Master Packages or Custom Packages.
    Update Description Description of the price update. This will appear on the Bulk Price Update screen.

  5. Click Continue to go to the Account selection screen.
