A Bypass Code is used to represent various different things from regions to contracts and is used in RPM as a optional way to segment commission rules along side Account Groups. This code can be any column on your import spreadsheets/transfers. Commission items can have a Bypass Code imported in the commission data, or a Rep ID can be assigned to a master ID.
Bypass Codes can be assigned to accounts groups, making it easy to apply a special rule only when the Bypass Code is imported.
A good example of usage of the Bypass Code would depends on each set of data coming into RPM, but think of it like a value on each row that you can use to set a special rate or payout. Region being a common usage, or if you wanted to group a set of commission items for internal staff.
Adding a Bypass Code
There are two ways to add a Bypass Code:
Using a Bypass Code
Using the above adding methods of Bypass Codes there are also two ways to assign the Bypass Code to an Account Group.
This method is useful in many ways but relies on the source of your data to be effective. Since the Bypass Code comes from a commission import you can setup your account groups to take advantage of this.
For example, if we take a column on a spreadsheet not normally used like an Order ID/Number which is created before the account we can create the account groups with using the Order ID/Number as the Bypass Code. This let's us build those exceptions before the account actually bills.
For example, you can create Bypass Codes with the same name as your Account Groups. Then when doing your imports for Assignment Codes you can easily tag the codes to an account group.
