How to specify the price lookup date for a product

When recalculating the unit prices for an order, FBO One looks up the applicable price agreements based on the the so called 'price reference date' of each order line.

If a product is configured using the default settings, the price reference date of the order line will follow the order's price reference date. For handling orders, the price reference date for an order is normally defined as the departure date of the handling. In case the handling order workflow is setup as an home operator order, where 'departure is handled before arrival', the arrival date will apply instead.

It is possible to override the price reference date per product.

  • For fuel and third party services, it may be suitable to use the delivery date for price look-ups. If you need this, select the option 'Use delivery date or service date as price reference date' in the Edit product page.
  • For landing fees, it may be suitable to use the arrival date, as opposed to the order's departure date that would normally apply. In that case, also select  'Use delivery date or service date as price reference date' in the Edit product page, also set the arrival departure indictator to arrival. See screen shot.
