A Happy Hour discount has a set date and time range that automatically toggles on and off to apply to transactions. Think Happy Hour at your favorite restaurant is only M-Thurs 3-5 PM, this can now be applied to your stores.
Byte University Tip: For Locations that are closed over the weekend this discount can help you reduce spoilage by the store automatically applying a discount on your fresh products on Friday at 2 PM, that otherwise will expire over the weekend, then automatically turn off the discount on Sunday Night when you plan on restocking the store with new fresh products.
