This week we deployed our first update of the year! Woo hoo!
There's a new 'hero' widget on the site homepage and other areas. It's a more modern sliding panel which shows highlights from area of the site. Works on mobile nicely too! Here's an example screenshot;
Improvements to Product Link dialog & popup panel. This is something shabaz fed back to us a couple of months ago. We've made multiple improvements;
Better quality results
Includes min order qty
Fits more on screen
Results formatted nicely
More likely to automatically find Newark/Farnell-equivalent SKU.
We've also made changes to what happens when the product isn't available...
We now show all product links / Buy Buttons in content (and widgets), even if the product isn’t available for the user's country
The ‘not found’ message now has options to search for the product on our stores
The idea is that you always gets an option to research the product & don’t hit a dead-end
We now send an email reminder to users who have asked to sign up to Community when they're registering with one of our store websites.
Extended the clickable area of our buttons.. one of those silly usability things we realised needed fixing.
Can't remove 3rd (or 4th, etc.) attachment from content
Theme: Ask a Question on a Design Challenge is misaligned and going off the page
Theme: RoadTest comment chevron menu doubles up
YouTube widget fails to render and page isn't editable
+ 4 other fixes
Show 'Not Available' Message when product unavailable in region (Design Center)
Change up the message when it times out while embedding videos
Display confirmation dialog for changes to Events made from the Calendar view
