  • Create Production Profile and Access Roles : You can create profile for the production department and define roles and rights for them, you can also decide the access to required screens and status to be update the progress of each product in production workflow defined by you as and when required.
  • Real Time Status Updates : Now after defining all the required roles, rights and production process you have to just sit and enjoy the show as all the orders and their real time status according to the workflow defined by you will be updated on the dashboard right from order to shipment. You can easily track the status of each and every order in production according to the workflow defined by you.

Other Enhancement and Bug Fixes

1. Allow text format tools in layout:

Currently in the system we do not allow the admin user to format text in layout, we just allow the admin user to add text. We have enhanced this text format feature, now the admin can change or format text (size, color, alignment, etc.) in layout with the text formatting tool bar.


2. Theme Search by User Type:

In the theme listing page previously we didn’t allow the admin user to search the themes based on the user type, now we have given search theme by user type to the admin user. On the theme listing page the admin user will be able to see “User Type” dropdown in the filter section.

3. Payment & Shipping Method Management

Sometime the corporates want you to manage special shipping methods and payments method for them which in general the customers might now be using to so it is useless for them or vice-versa, with this feature you can manage payment and shipping methods for different purpose and users or for all.

4. Email Template Enhancement

  • Payment Request Raised Email: When you raise a payment request for your customer they receive a mail saying a payment request is raised for them but so see the amount for which the request was raised has to be seen after login to the system and see the amount for which the request was raised. This was time consuming so to avoid this inconvenience we have added the amount variable in the mail so your customer can directly view the amount in the mail itself and make payment without having to login to the system.
  • Product Email Enhancement: When your customers receive any order status update mail currently the information available in the email is the order No. and the changed status, now I the customer want to know the order details he will have to login to the system and view the order details which is sometimes long so we have resolved this problem and now when your customer will receive an order status update mail he will also be able to see the basic details of the order in the mails so that it is easy for him to relate it with the order.

5. Order Success/Fail Confirmation Page Modification:

Currently in the system when your customer checks out after making payment he only gets the order no. if successful and if payment fails it shows order cancelled, the cart becomes empty and yet the order is placed under unpaid orders which is ambiguous. To remove this ambiguity, we have redesigned the page where we have put order details a proper payment success and failure message, reward points details and a few helpful FAQ’s to help your customer.

6. Display Branch Details in Invoice:

When you have a huge partner network it becomes very difficult to track the which order was facilitated by which branch, through our Display branch details in invoice feature it will become fast and easy to trace down the order to the branch, from admin panel you can add the branch details wherever you want in the invoice format.

7. Export / Import Shipping Price:

Many times you have many shipping methods than it becomes very difficult for you the update or add shipping price individually manually, to address this pain area of yours we have provided you with the option of import / Export option for shipping prices where you can down the format fill in the details and import the data in the system and update the prices in a simplified way.

8. Google Trusted Store Integration:

Google trusted store is an important tool for listing of your product and you store so we have integrated the trusted store service in store configuration settings from where you can input your store ID and rest will be taken care by the system itself.

9. Display Phone No. In Customer Popup ad Admin Side:

When you view orders and want some clarity about the order on an immediate basis via call then you have to go the customer details get his contact no. from there and then call and get the clarity, so shorten this process we have added the phone no, in the customer details pop-up on the order listing page.

10. Product Setting Page Restructure Based On Category

The product setting page had all the settings on a single due to this sometimes it was difficult for you to find a particular setting and change it, for your convenience we have redesigned the product setting page here we have put the product settings under broad groups so it becomes easy for you to find and update them.

11. Default Notification Enable Disable Option

Every time while updating the status of the product you have to choose your preference for whom to send notification, now you can set the default preference for whom to send notification so that every time you don’t have to change the preference to send notification.
