Allow quantity discounts to have a "Sell X for Y price", 3 for $5

Right now discounts only allow for specific price breaks or reductions. It should be more simple than that, it should allow the user to enter a discount
where if an item is sold in multiples as indicated in the discount a specific price is allowed. In an example an item regularly sells for $1.99 but you want to be able to sell 3 for $5.00. In RMS you can't do this. You have to create a discount of a quantity of 3 at $1.66 which when rung sells as $4.98 and there is no way to extend the decimal place for the prices entered in a discount such as $1.6663 in order to get a rollover. It should be simplified to a quantity box and a price. If that quantity is rung up on the POS Sales Screen the amount should be whatever is in the price box. RIght now it is cumbersome for customers to use this feature to get specific prices.

I suggested a similar function a year or more ago. When setting up discounts we should be able to use 3 decimal places for the price. I have several items I sell 12 for a dollar and can't set up RMS that way. What I had to do was set up the items so that the selling unit was 12 and then if someone only wants one or two we have to use .0833 as a single unit which I have set up as a custom button. Not pretty but it works. I will vote for the suggestion, but I wouldn't hold your breath. Craig
