General Bug Fixes

Product added in Company Favorites not visible on Store

Before Release

Previously product added in Company favorites were not visible on storefront. This was happening because the product was not included into the store catalog assigned to theat customer.

After Release

  • To resolve this issue a new option called 'Store Catalog' has been added in the product search function
  • When a user goes to Customer/Contact's Favorites and clicks on 'New' button, he is redirected to Advanced Search Page. Here the user will see the dropdown filter 'Store Catalog' with options 'Default' and 'Select Catalog'.
  • The 'default' option is the Customer/Contact's specific catalog while 'Select Catalog' is the entire catalog
  • When contact’s specific catalog is selected from drop down then system is showing only those products which are available in Contact's Catalog.
