Change Renewal Series (customer tab)

Use the Ctrl+RightArrow and Ctrl+LeftArrow keys or your mouse to move from one "Change Renewal Series" tab to another. When you're through, click on "OK" to begin running the update.

Random numbers

Enter one or more random number ranges in these fields, and QuickFill will change renewal series for customers with these random numbers only. Leave these fields blank, and QuickFill will change renewal series without regard to the customers' random numbers. (Click here for details on random numbers.)

Country

Enter a country code, and QuickFill will change the renewal series for orders that are from that country. (Enter "USA" if you would like to select orders for customers with addresses in the United States of America. Enter "CAN" if you would like to select orders for customers with Canadian addresses.) You'll usually enter a country code in conjunction with postal codes for a particular country. To enter a country code, type the code directly into this field or right click once to select a code from a list of country codes.

Leave these blank, and QuickFill will change the renewal series without regard to country code.

Postal/zip codes

Enter one or more postal/zip code ranges in these fields, and QuickFill will change renewal series for customers with those postal/zip codes only. Leave these fields blank, and QuickFill will change renewal series without regard to the customers' postal/zip codes.

Demographic codes

You may select customers using either the numeric or the alphanumeric demographic codes. You make selections using ranges of values for the numeric codes or by using wild cards for the alphanumeric codes. Click here for more information on using wild cards.

If you fill in ranges for more than one demographic code (A: 1–10 and C: 20–30, for example), the customer must match the range you've specified for both codes. In our example, your labels would not include a customer with an A code of 5 and a C code of 10. But it would include a customer with an A code of 8 and a C code of 25. (Click here for a full explanation of demographic codes.)

Renewal can be sent by e-mail

Check this box and QuickFill will only update the renewal series of customers that are eligible for e-mail delivery. Delivery by email is possible if a) the subscriber has an email address (either one will do) and b) the subscriber has not requested that you not contact him by email (see the "Allowed usage" fields on the customer address screen).  For more information on sending renewal notices via e-mail see this topic.

Include customers with any/all of these selection flags
Exclude customers with any/all of these selection flags

Every customer record has eight selection flags which can be set or cleared via the address change transaction or by the 'Mark Customers' update. Use these checkboxes to include or exclude customers based on the state of the selection flags. If you choose the 'any' option then the customer will be included (or excluded) if any one of the indicated selection flags is set. If you choose the 'all' option then the customer will be included (or excluded) only if all of the indicated selection flags are set. Other flags may be set too, but all of the indicated selection flags must be set for the customer to be considered to be a match.
