How to create & post Ociety Specials?

What are Ociety Specials? These are deals that may or may not have a $ or % value discount but may still offer value (e.g. Bottomless mimosas, flat-rate buffet, BOGOs, etc.)

Log into your Ociety account:

Open the “Deals” tab:

Click on “Add new Deal” button:

Select "Ociety Specials":

In case you'd like to create a Food Waste Reduction Planet Promos Deal, please follow the steps mentioned in this article:

The Specials creation flow consists of 3 simple steps. In the first step, it's required to select and input the following:

1) Select whether you want to create a Special for food or drink items in the "Applies to" section.
2) The category of the selected food/drink item.
3) The sub-category of the selected food/drink item (in case you cannot find the needed sub-category, you can add your custom one using the "Other" option).
4) Input the title for your Special (e.g. "Bottomless Brunch")
5) Description field is optional, so you can either skip it or add any additional information on the items, special, or anything else.
6) Exceptions/Restrictions field is also optional, so can either skip it or describe any limitations your special might have.

After that, please scroll down a bit, and fill in the rest of the fields:

1) Start date of your special (when it becomes live in the Ociety app).
2) Expiration date of your special.
3) Select the time and date when the special should be active in the "Usable Only During These Days & Times" field.
4) Select any dietary restrictions (if any).
5) Input the "Special Value". This field is optional, so you may skip it if you don't have a specific special value.
6) Input the "Special's Price".

Once you fill in all the details → click "Next" to select a Special quantity (limited/unlimited), a Maximum usage across all customers/per customer, and the Target Audience (in case you have vouchers for alcohol items, they will not be visible to the users younger than 21 years).

You can also be notified when the selected amount of specials is left.

In the last step, you can upload up to 5 pictures for your Special. It's an optional step, so if you skip it, the system will use the default clip art:

Once everything is ready, click "Create & Publish".

You can always check/verify the redeemed Special codes by clicking on the three-dots button near the selected Voucher, and going to "Deal codes":
