Release Notes – 8 January 2014

Release Date:  Wednesday 8 Jan 2014 10:00pm : downtime approx 30 minutes

New features in this release

Custom Email Templates

It is now possible to personalise the various emails sent to customers to suit your requirements.

Sales Order Discounts

It is now possible to add a discount amount to a sales order and a sales return.
This means that Shopify orders with discounts/coupons will now be correctly loaded into Tradevine.

Update Active Trade Me listings

An Update Active Listings button has been added to the Trade Me channel settings screen. Clicking this button will update all active listings with the current settings. Remember that Tradevine will attempt to update the listing, but in some circumstances the change is rejects (e.g. there are already bids or the listing is closing within the next few hours or it has already been edited 3 times).

Auto-printing Shipments

We have changed the way that we decide which shipments can be made when there is insufficient inventory to ship all orders. Orders with the oldest Requested Shipping Date now have the highest priority. Shipments will still be printed grouped by customer.

New Sort Order on Listings Screen

A new sort order called Closing soon, Recently closed has been added to the Listings screen. This will sort each of the tabs on the screen by a logical order (i.e. open listings which are closing soon now appear at the top as well as recently closed items appearing at the top) instead of all ascending or all descending as the other sort selections do.

Delete Sales Channels

It is now possible to delete a Trade Me or Shopify sales channel. Data linked to the deleted channel will no longer be visible on your product, sales orders, listings, feedback or questions screens.

Shopify Variant Information Added to Product Name

When importing variant products from Shopify into Tradevine the variant values are added to the Product Name. For example if a ‘Lovely Dress’ with size and colour variants of ’12’ and ‘Red’ will be created in Tradevine as ‘Lovely Dress – 12 – Red’.

Import Mappings

We will only save your import mappings (that get used as defaults on a subsequent import) once the import begins.  This means that if you go back from step 3 to step 2 we will use the latest settings.

Shipping Option – Freight

We have added ‘Freight’ as a shipping option.

Shipment filter panel

We have added the ability to filter by any inventory traffic light colour (not just green)

API Changes

There are 2 changes to our API

  • Confirm Shipment – It is now possible to trigger a customer tracking email when confirming shipments
  • Get Product – now returns image information

Importing Product Changes

There are no changes to importing for this release.

Importing Sales Order Changes

A column has been added to specify the total discount amount

Key Bug Fixes

  1. We have made more room for the legends on the sales order reporting graphs. Sometimes these were overlapping, eliminating readability
  2. We have fixed the sorting of order numbers on the sales order and shipments grids – these were sorting alphabetically instead of numerically

All of these improvements are based on customer feedback. We are planning to release further improvements on a regular basis. Your feedback is vital to ensuring that we’re working on the most important things first. If you have any suggestions, then check out our suggestions page where you can also vote.
