Trading programs are a fundamental concept within Trading Programs and are used to organise, control and monitor program lines for a supplier. Multiple trading programs can be set up for a supplier, where each scheme contains one or more program lines, and each program line must belong to a single trading program.
When configuring a trading program, multiple settings must be configured. One of these is the trading program type version, which will control the ‘Terms’ data that is stored against a trading program while also dictating the mechanisms that can be selected for the trading program’s program lines.
Once a trading program and its program lines are configured, it can be approved using the approval workflow process; this is an optional process and therefore may not be enabled for you. Furthermore, a trading program's actual and forecasted earnings can be analysed on a week-by-week basis through the Analysis page.
