Composable Commerce

Orders

With this release, we are re-introducing My views in the Order list. A custom view of the Order list captures applied filters and search fields.

A custom view is helpful when you have tasks that require different perspectives on Orders and their various properties. For instance, if you need to identify and work through all the Orders older than a certain date and have outstanding payments, this criteria can be set as a filter on the Order list and then saved as a view named Outstanding Payments.

Once a custom view is created, you can easily switch back and forth between any saved views and the Order list will adapt accordingly.

For saved custom views, it is possible to rename them, delete them, and to make changes that you either update the view with, or that you save as an entirely new view. For any unsaved changes made to a view, you can always revert to the saved version of the view.

Orders

With this release, the Orders List gets a quick filter for setting order created ranges. Instead of setting a filter for "Date created" where specific dates are entered as criteria, the quick filter allows you to easily set a relative date range. The quick filter options are:

  • None
  • Last 30 days
  • Last 3 months
  • Last 6 months
  • Last 12 months

For projects with a sizable amount of Orders, setting the quick filter to, for example, "Last 30 days" is advised to ensure quick results when doing Order searches.

Customers

With this release, a new feature called My Views is available for the Customer List. A View is a customization of the Customer List capturing:

For created Views, it is possible to rename them, delete them, and to make changes that you either update the View with, or that you save as an entirely new View. For any unsaved changes made to a View, you can always revert to the saved version of the View.
