To create a new Dealer Recommended Package:

  1. Go to Configure > Resources > Services.
  2. Click Launch Service Manager.
  3.  On the Manage Services screen, select the Manage Recommendations tab at the top of the screen.

  5. Choose the Make from the drop-down menu for this new Dealer Recommended Package.
  6. Choose the Menu Type from the drop-down menu to be used.

  8. Select the intervals that the dealer recommendation applies to.
    • You can select intervals from the Interval drop down
    • You can manually select the intervals by checking each box to apply the dealer recommendation.
  9. If you selected the option to "Choose Vehicles," you can choose to add this recommendation to vehicles of an existing dealer recommendation.
  10. If you selected "Choose Vehicles," you will now need to add vehicles, if you did not "Use vehicles from an existing recommendation."
    • Linked - Check this if you want the dealer recommendation to automatically add new year models.  You will also need to leave the Years > To field blank.  
    • Include - Any options selected under the Include tab will add vehicles that match the selections.
    • Exclude - Any vehicles that match the selections under the Exclude tab will not be added to the recommendation.
