Welcome to the latest Release Update blog post.
Happy New Year everybody! I hope sales over the Christmas period were great for you all and that your new year’s resolutions are all still in full swing. In the spirit of “new year, new you”, today’s update is a little StoreFeeder centric with some great quality of life updates; we hope you find them all useful.
As always, there has been a lot of work in the background but there have been some great updates and new features released this month, the highlights of which are below:
Automatic Archiving of Historical Orders
To help improve speed and filter efficiency on the ‘Manage Orders’ page we have implemented a feature where StoreFeeder automatically archives historical orders over 6 months old.
Of course, archived does not mean deleted and your historical orders are still very much accessible; you just need to switch the ‘Archived’ filter on before you search for them as demonstrated in the pictures below:
On the ‘Manage Orders’ page, click the filter settings icon (circled above) and check the box marked ‘Archived’.
Now you should have a filer marked ‘Archived’. From the dropdown menu, select ‘Yes’ to all of your orders, including those over 6 months old.
Splitting Order Lines by Quantity
Previously the only way to split lines from an order into a new order was the ‘Split by Out of Stock’ feature; this would take the quantity of the product that wasn’t currently available in said order and split it into a new order, thus allowing you to send out the part of the order you do have available.
As of this update, you will now be able to split order lines by quantity without the product having to be pending stock first. You can do so through the ‘Edit Order’ page as demonstrated below:
Under the ‘Items Ordered’ section you’ll first need to mark which products you want to split by using the checkboxes on the left-hand side (circled above). Then, from the dropdown box at the top of the section, select ‘Split into New Order’ and click the ‘Confirm’ button when you are ready.
You’ll then be presented with the pop up shown above; all you need to do here is indicate how many of the selected product(s) you’d like to split off into a new order, then click the ‘Create’ button to create the new order.
Max Pickwave Size Feature Enhancement
Not that long ago we introduced a feature that allowed you to set a max pickwave size when creating pickwaves so that you could select as many orders as you wanted and StoreFeeder would split them down into pickwaves of the predetermined size.
Whilst a great feature, it had one small flaw in that it would always sort the orders into date order before creating the pickwaves. This would happen regardless of whether you had filters set up differently to this on the ‘Outstanding Orders’ section of the ‘Picking’ page.
So what we’ve done is altered the feature a little so that it creates the pickwaves from the orders you’ve selected and in the same way you have sorted them on the ‘Outstanding Orders’ grid.
This was a heavily requested enhancement to this feature so we hope it comes as a welcome addition to your day to day use of StoreFeeder.
There have been some great new features and fixes implemented this release and we hope you find them useful in one way or another.
As always we’ll keep working hard to provide you with the best service we can.
From all of us here at StoreFeeder, happy selling.
