Fall is here, and so is a new Smidyo. Let's take a look what the summer of '19 has produced in terms of new features.
We have finally implemented a way for you to allow your customers to sign up to your Smidyo sales domain.
You can send out invites to create accounts through the Accounts section of your dashboard. We do not recommend public account creation at this point, but if you want you can enable public sign-ups by going to Settings > Account > Allow public account creation on your dashboard.
Once you've got accounts, those accounts can place orders! There is no option for credit card payments currently, but it's on the way.
✔️ Order row data
Your quote rows and order rows can now include rich data. As you can see in the example above, what's visible in the order view is different from what is visible from your customer's point of view. This is because yield pipelines can now define quoteOutputs and orderOutputs.
These different sets of results can be then fed into a form pipeline, which purpose is to display the data. Above you can see the element blocks;
vector-express.eb.svg-preview.r.1, for the preview (link)
file-any-download.r.1, for the download button.
Try creating a new offering, and you will see these brand new options!
🔜 What's coming up?
We're always working on new features. Let us know if you've got an idea for a good one, and we'll try our best to get it into a future version!
Better industry specific support structure
We are building a support network who will be able to help you with industry specific requests.
(For now though, you can contact us directly, no matter what your business deals in!)
These will allow for shipping cost calculations, and more. Aggregators will work similarly to offerings, but they can be supplied with specific data about every data row. So for shipping, this may be weight, or volume.
Credit card payments
You will be able to accept credit card payments through Stripe.
Visual pipeline editor
We do realise that the current pipeline editor is a bit daunting, especially if you do not come from a programming background. That's why we are planning, in addition to the code editor, a visual version that will let you drag and drop blocks, and make connections with your mouse.
