Enhancements

Introduced Ability to Add Part IDs to URLs for Responsive Store

  • Now users can add part IDs to URLs and search products by part ID instead of part No. on Responsive Store. They can now enter part IDs in URL to get the exact product that they are searching on Responsive store
  • For instance, they have to explicitly enter productlist/partids=26143334,22421406,28152357" in set URL field to get the exact results
  • Product search by part ID is allowed on Header Menu, Footer Menu, Category Matrix widget, Image Box, Brand List, Quick Link and Infomatrix widget on Responsive store
  • Catalog visibility will get applied to search result criteria as per customer-specific catalog, price and stock filter in BO.

Use Case---> Search by part No. was not showing the exact number of products. Hence to get exact search results, the functionality to search products through part IDs has been introduced.

User Permissions applied to edit Customer/Contact Details on General Tab of Transactions (Quote, Cart, SO) in BackOffice

Before Release

Previously any user could update or change the Customer/Contact details in Quote, Cart and SO. The fields such as Name, Email and Phone were displayed always in editable mode.

After Release

Now if a user doesn't have permission to create or edit customers in VS, they cannot update or change the Customer/Contact details in General Tab Quote, Cart and SO.

General Bug Fixes

System will now trigger Credit Limit approval workflow for Quotes and Sales Order (SO) even if the payment method is not selected

Before Release

Previously the credit limit approval workflow was not being triggered for quote and SO where the payment method was not selected. As a result, the user was able to further process the quote of the customer who had exceeded their credit limit.

After Release

Now even if the user in BackOffice does not select payment method, system will trigger credit limit workflow for quote and SO. This will ensure that quotes and SO of customers who have exceeded their credit limit are sent for approval.

System was not displaying 'Return Duration Expiration' for line item on storefront even when the return duration has expired

Before Release

Previously when the Return duration had expired, system did not display 'Return Duration Expires on 'Expire Date' label for line item on storefront.

After Release

The issue has been fixed. Now when Return duration expires, system will display 'Return Duration Expire on 'Expire Date' label for line item on storefront.

User Unable to Send Quotes to Himself

Before Release

Previously user was not able to send quotes to himself. This was happening because the user was copy-pasting contact name with non-keyboard characters in the quote.

After Release

  • The issue has been fixed. Now the user will be allowed only to enter keyword characters in Contact name in Quote. In case the user tries to copy-paste contact name with non-keyboard characters in the quote, those characters will be auto-removed from the quote.
  • This change is applicable for all the fields in Cart/Quote/SO/PO.

After Release

The issue has been fixed. Now when users click on 'Confirmation and Proceed to Payment' button in Quote, they will be redirected to session time out page instead of 404 error page.
