Direct-Link to the module:
Contingents are used to limit the ability to order without clearance for specific contact accounts or whole roles. The B2B-Suite defaults to disallow all direct orders and put them into the clearance process.
A contingent group is a container for a specific rule set.
In the contingent module you can create new contingent groups by clicking on the "Create Contingent Group" button. After submitting the form you will be forwarded to the contingent detail page.
After creating the contingent group you can define corresponding rules. You have to set Contingent rules in Order to allow contacts to direct order or clear orders themselves.
There are three types of rules that can be configured.
The rules supports three types of restrictions:
Handles the maximum order amount net per time unit.
Order Item Quantity
Handles the maximum quantity of articles per time unit.
Handles the maximum allowed orders per time unit.
A contingent restriction disallows orders that are otherwise whitelisted through the contingents rule set. Currently you can directly disable products from certain categories or their subcategories. Also are restrictions based on product price and product ordernumber available.
To remove contingent groups you can use the trash button to delete the selected group which is no longer required.
