Carrier Detection: If you are using ShipCompliant we have improved our carrier detection (specifically around FedEx) attempting to send tracking links to Customers (rather than sometimes labelling the courier as 'other').

Nov 21, 2022

Nov 14, 2022

Live Chat Support: One third of our client base now has access to live chat. Click the Support link on the bottom left of the Admin panel to see if you are one of the lucky ones. We will be rolling this out to everyone before the end of the month - so if it's not there quite yet, just be patient while we work to get this right and staff it well.

If you do see it, say hi to us, (and take it easy on us while we test this new functionality with you).

Oct 31, 2022

Tipping By Set Dollar Amounts: If you are using Commerce7 Payments, in the POS Profile area, you can now set the default tips to be set dollar amounts rather than percentages if you wish.

Sales by Club Report: The Sales by Club report used to only reflect sales that were in the Club Channel and specific to a given Club. The report has been revised so it will reflect all sales that are in a Club Channel. (Now that you can change the Channel of a Cart to a Club this makes more sense).

Reservation Queries: If you are querying Reservations (in the Marketing/Query area) we have added the ability to query on Reservation Status.

Lifetime Value Seed Amount: If you're a Partner that imports Orders and Customers for a winery, there is a new attribute on the Customer API called 'lifetimeValueSeedAmount' that will let you seed the Customers Lifetime Value (so that you don't have to import really old Orders).

Queries and Tags: When creating a Query for Orders, Reservations, Club Memberships, or Club shipments, you can now tag the Customer that is returned in the Query. For example if you query all your Pickup Orders, you can now tag the Customers of those Pickup Prders. Or if you query all your Club shipments, you can now tag the Customers in those shipments. (This is great if you want to email everyone who belongs to a Query set result.)

Bulk Action Emails: When a bulk action email is sent, the email body will now say the tenant the bulk action was generated for. (Great for people working with multiple brands.)

Subscriptions and Traditional Club Packages: In the Admin panel when setting up Club Packages or Subscriptions Products, there is a new toggle for 'available on web' allowing you to have Products that are only available via the Admin panel (for example use this when you have limited inventory and want to control how many Club Members can request the product)

Sept 30, 2022

Channels: When creating an Order (either in the Admin panel or POS), you can now change the Channel of the Order. (In the Admin panel this is in the top right, and on the POS this is in the additional info.)

Trash: Items deleted will be removed automatically from the Trash and permanently deleted after one year. The Trash area of the Admin panel now defaults to showing the last month of deleted items. The performance around the Trash area has been updated.

Dev Center: For Developers, we have now added 'App Data' to Carts (similar to Orders, Customers, and other objects that have App Data). App Data is like Meta Data but it can only be added/deleted by the App that created it.

Sep 16, 2022

App Center: The Apps & Extensions area has been completely redesigned. We are allowing searching, filtering, and all new displays (for apps that have been updated by 3rd party developers). We are allowing apps and integrations to have screenshots and significantly more detail around their apps.

V2 Frontend and Allocations: On Monday August 22nd, if you have an active allocation, on the V2 frontend, customers will be able to go to their profile and see their allocation, and purchase from the allocation page.We'd encourage wineries to use personalization blocks and/or collections to display allocations on their website (and we feel this is the best customer experience), but for wineries that want a traditional workflow they might have had in a system like WineDirect or VineSpring, this will be available.The new allocation page in the profile area will use your default collection template, but can then be styled by a designer similarly to all other product pages.

Aug 12, 2022
