The capability, Item assortment rules for 2-Day program setup, will part of the enhancements:
Create rules for items based on filter conditions like price, weight, category and then apply actions to specify the 2 Day coverage areas, sub regions. Simulate the rule to preview the items impacted and then activate the rule to easily manage assortment for 2-Day setup. Total number of rules activated + total number of rules Inactivated + total number of active rules deleted = 5 per day.
