Our second set of updates this August will soon be released, and this time we have focused on improvements to existing features, along with the introduction of our newest webstore integration.
Each of our customer’s businesses are different, and we pride ourselves on the level of customisation and bespoke options we offer. Our updates are always developed to benefit our customers, often down to an individual level.
Here is a brief rundown of all of the updates due for release on August 23 – 2017.
For details on how to integrate StoreFeeder with your Magento store, see:
Archive old shipping methods
When you delete a Shipping method you no longer use, or have replaced, StoreFeeder will archive it now instead of deleting it.
Previously, any order still assigned to a deleted shipping method would display ‘Default Shipping Method’, but now the archived shipping method will be displayed. Furthermore, you will be able to select archived shipping methods when filtering your orders.
Improved admin permissions
Depending on the size of your workforce, and the different roles within your company, sometimes it is necessary to refine StoreFeeder’s user Permissions. By request, we have added an additional level of user permissions so certain tasks can only be performed by admin users.
You can activate this feature by contacting our support team.
With the Improved Admin Permissions activated, the following processes will be limited to admin users:
- Deleting Orders (single and bulk)
- Exporting\Importing Order Information
- Exporting\Importing Customer Information
- Exporting\Importing Product Information (Bulk and On Screen)
- Exporting\Importing Listing Information
- All Reports
If a non-admin attempts to perform these tasks, a popup message will appear explaining the current user setting does not have sufficient permissions, and the user will need to speak to an admin.
By request, we have added a channel shipping method column to the Orders Overview page. This will allow you to group together and filter by each shipping method chosen by your customers in-store, for ease of service selection.
This column is hidden by default, but can be switched on by using the filter icon, and checking the option.
New email trigger status: Assigned
We are including more ways to communicate with your customer base through StoreFeeder, and the new ‘Assigned’ status in your Company Identity Email Setting will send an email to your customers as soon as their orders have been placed in a pickwave, so they know their order is being picked and packed, ready to be shipped.
This change would also require a new email template type of “Processing” so they can send out a different email in this case
For more information see Knowledgebase: Email Settings.
Product upload setting on new channel integrations
StoreFeeder has always been designed with our customers’ options in mind. As such, we have changed the setting that allows your listings to be uploaded to channel by default. This way, you can create new integrations at your own pace, secure that nothing will be uploaded to your channels without your confirmation.
You will need to turn the ‘Upload listings’ toggle back to ‘On’ when you are ready to activate your new integrations. It can be found in the ‘Stock Management’ section of each ‘Integration details’ page.
We are changing the ‘upload products’ default setting when you create a new channel integration. The setting will now to switched to off by default.
Remember to make use of our UserVoice service to make any suggestions for improvements, or to vote on other suggestions that apply to you and your business.
Our support team are always happy to answer your queries.
from all of us here at StoreFeeder, enjoy the rest of the summer, and happy retailing!
