Once a keycode discount code has been setup, see How To: Setup a Unique Discount Offer Keycode, the Keycode Aliases screen is used to generate and maintain the unique discount codes for customers either automatically or manually, see How To: Manually Generate Unique Discount Codes for Customers and How To: Automatically Generate Unique Discount Codes for Customers. These discount codes can be emailed to the customer so they can quote them on a sales order, see How To: Setup an Email Template to send Customers their Unique Offer Code and How To: Email a Customer with their Unique Offer Code. However, only the customer the code was generated for can use the code and associated discounts, see How To: Redeem Unique Offer Codes.

A keycode flagged as a Discount Code can have multiple customer unique discount codes created against it. If a customer has multiple discount codes they can use them for one sales order as long as they have been generated against different keycodes and the discount code was created against their record. When the discount codes are added to the Sales Order, the discounts defined against the discount code will be applied to the Sales Order.

The Keycode Aliases screen consists of a grid and buttons.
