Purpose: Use this screen to define the default setting of the Opt In/Opt Out field when you create a new customer or email address. You need to set this system control value to ensure correct customer creation and update.
Code field: Enter the default setting of the Opt In/Opt Out field to use when you create a new customer or email address for the:
• sold-to customer
• sold to email
• sold to entity
• bill-to customer
Valid values are:
• O1 (All emails) = Email is the preferred method of correspondence
• O2 (Order emails) or blank = Send only order-related email correspondence
• O3 (No emails) = Email is not an acceptable method of correspondence
• O4 (Do not ask) = Do not ask the customer for his/her email address; the customer has already been asked and has declined to provide it. The system does not generate any email correspondence to the customer, even if an email address is specified.
Note: The valid settings for this field each start with the letter O rather than the number 0 (zero).
E-commerce catalog requests: If the received from the web storefront does not contain a value in the bill_to_opt_in flag, the system defaults the setting of this system control value. See for additional processing information.
You can work with this field in customer maintenance, order entry, and when entering catalog requests.
