You have reached the final step in the strategy builder. You have selected your target segment and created your repricing rules. You have set the bounds for your strategy as a safety measure. Now it’s time to ask yourself, “Is there a time aspect to my strategy?”
Step 4: Set Up Schedule for this Strategy: This step allows you to create time-based rules for this strategy. However, this step is completely optional. Once you have set your bounds, your strategy is perfectly acceptable to activate. Step 4 is an additional feature for convenience and structure if your workflow requires it.
If you want to create a start or end date, have a strategy that runs only on weekends, or limit how often prices get recommended then you will set that up here.
There are 3 functions to work with within the scheduler: Repeat, Range and Frequency.
Repeat: If you want this strategy to always run, or want it to have a specific start and/or end date, set Repeat to “None”. If you want this strategy to run on specific days of the week, set Repeat to “Weekly”.
Range: Choose dates and times for this strategy to run using the date picker. By default, this is set to run immediately (Now) and will run until you manually turn it off (Forever).
Using Repeat & Range: Changing your Range setting will affect your Repeat options. Having your Range set to “None” will give you a full date and time picker. Having your Range set to “Weekly” will allow you to pick a day of the week when this strategy will run.
Frequency: Limit how often prices get recommended by this strategy by pressing the checkbox next to Frequency and setting a number of days. While new price recommendations are constantly being calculated, using a Frequency means that these recommendations will only go live based on the cadence you set.
