Media and Costing - Pricing Schedules

A pricing schedule is a set of media prices and policies that is given a name. Pricing schedules make it possible to assign different pricing to different billing codes. You always start out with one pricing schedule, called Default. New pricing schedules are always created by copying existing pricing schedules. Once you've created a new pricing schedule, you can then change pricing for your media and assign billing codes to your new pricing schedule. You can switch between pricing schedules by clicking the tabs along the bottom of the Argos Manager window in the Items & Costing page.

To create a pricing schedule:

  1. Switch to the Media & Costing page in Argos Manager.
  2. Click the Add a pricing schedule link at the bottom of the Argos Manager window.
  3. Provide a name for your new pricing schedule.
  4. In your new pricing schedule, make desired pricing and tax changes.
  5. Switch to the Projects page (your page name may vary).
  6. Find a billing code that should use the new pricing schedule. Open up the billing code for editing.
  7. Switch to the More Options tab.
  8. In the Pricing schedule dropdown list, choose the name of your new pricing schedule.
  9. Click OK to save. Because Argos must recalculate pricing for all activity on the selected billing code, it may take a moment for the dialog to close.
To delete a pricing schedule
  1. Switch to the Media & Costing page in Argos Manager.
  2. On the tab of the pricing schedule you wish to delete, click the down arrow, then click Remove.
  3. Confirm that you wish to delete the pricing schedule.
  4. If any billing codes reference the pricing schedule you wish to delete, a dialog will display a list of the referencing billing codes. In the Replace with schedule dropdown list you can specify a new pricing schedule to replace the one you're deleting. Note that any activity allocated to the displayed billing codes will also be updated to the replacement pricing schedule.

Pricing schedule notes:

  • The basis that you choose for a media (e.g. square feet, per page, etc.) is the same across all pricing schedules. If you change the basis in one pricing schedule, it will change for all pricing schedules.
  • The same media types are present in all pricing schedules.
