Business Development | Server Side Rendering (03:21)

The first beta tests have been carried out for server-side rendering, and the data is now being analyzed in order to implement optimizations. The SSR should increase the time-to-first-byte values (TTFB) of plentyShops, i.e. the time of data transfer from the server to the browser, and ensure better stability.


RELEASED: OMS & Automation | Number ranges (04:02)

Based on user feedback, improvements have been made to the number ranges for sequential numbering of business documents. Important hints have been placed in the configuration process. In addition, variables are now available for the use of prefixes, so that, for example, the year can be included in the number range and this continues accordingly in the following year.

OMS & Automation | DocumentBuilder (05:25)

The DocumentBuilder is in an open beta, i.e. the test phase - here feedback can be quickly implemented and corresponding improvements published. For each document type (invoice, delivery note, etc.), a decision can be made as to whether the DocumentBuilder or the old document setup is to be used. The custom order document, which has now been introduced, can be freely designed and is also available in the OrderUI as well as in event actions and processes, can also be used for testing. In the foreseeable future, only the DocumentBuilder will be available in new systems, an EOL for the existing document setup will not take place this year and will be announced with sufficient lead time.

RELEASED: OMS & Automation | DocumentBuilder: Code Widget (06:37)

The variables and settings in DocumentBuilder are continuously being expanded. Similar to the ShopBuilder and EmailBuilder, individual code can now be applied to the business documents for even more customization. The corresponding widget can be dragged to the desired location and filled there.

OMS & Automation | DocumentBuilder: Properties (07:10)

Furthermore, the integration of properties into the DocumentBuilder is being developed in the near future. Soon it will be possible to display properties on the documents.

OMS & Automation | plentyFlow (07:56)

The first user interface for the configuration of flows is to be made available at the end of the current operating plan - i.e. in late fall of this year. The technological basis and the conceptual considerations have been tested and a first version of plentyFlowStudio has been drafted. A feedback round will be started early with the UI and the first functioning flows. Existing functionalities such as event actions, processes and the action manager will remain in place for the time being.

RELEASED: CRM & Goods | ItemUI: Dynamic Table Columns (09:41)

In the new ItemUI it is now possible to configure and rename table columns via drag & drop. These custom names are used both in the overview and in the detail view.

RELEASED: CRM & Goods | ItemUI: Inline-Table-Editing (10:31)

The Inline Table Editing has been released. This allows item or variation information to be edited directly in the table overview. It significantly simplifies and speeds up content maintenance. Instructions on how to use the function can be found in the changelog in the forum.

CRM & Goods | Extension of Catalogue Formats (11:12)

Catalogue formats are being developed in the ITEM and CRM areas so that data can be exported using catalogues shortly. This functionality is being rolled out feature by feature.

RELEASED: CRM & Goods | Order Panel in Company (11:49)

Step by step, the company entity is equipped with additional information. For example, a view has already been integrated that displays all orders from contacts linked to the corresponding company record. This panel can now be placed on the company view using the MyView. Additional relational data information, such as key performance indicators and messages, will follow.

Platform | Central Login (14:47)

As part of the central login to the plentysystems backend, it is also possible to create restricted accounts without a valid e-mail address, for example, to enable employees in the warehouse to log in. In this case, it is not possible to use single sign-on, which requires an e-mail address.
