Auto Email Discount Codes

I think that there should be an option to assign an email address to a discount code, and have an auto email sent out to the account.
This functionality would allow us to track who has been awarded discount codes in the system without the need to manually track assigned codes and usage in an external database.
For multi use codes, assigning an email address would create a single use instance (copy) of the multi use code.

    Hi Ron, This is something you can do today. With an admin field for the discount code and an auto-notification you can have an email sent to the recipient when they receive a discount. Here is an example of an auto notification. 

     

    Hi ::first_name::,

    Your scholarship request has been granted. You will receive a ::amount_granted:: discount on your team fees. You can now register for the season. Click here to register and make sure you input the following discount code.

    Discount Code: ::discount_code::

    thank you,

    This is of course given that you have a separate registration just for scholarship or discount requests. We do not have this. We created a series of questions that parents must answer. Based on their answers, they are given a code that is displayed as a text block on their screen and suggests entering the code at checkout. However, that code is not unique to any one individual and is multi-use. What Ron was suggesting (I think) was for Admins to generate discount codes (single-use or multi-use) and email a user the code to use prior to registration. This would be done from the "Discounts" area using messaging by adding an email address field to the discount code. Example of how we did it attached.
