These Icecat Release Notes explain the support of anchors in Product Stories, the roll-out of Near Real-Time (nRT) XML, UX tweaks in Vendor Central, and a number of miscellaneous changes and fixes. The previous Icecat release notes can be found here.
In the newly-added HP product stories, the asset contains internal html anchors. These anchors allow switching between page sections (e.g., via a menu). Now we also support anchors in the general Product Stories format in Icecat
We start to activate nRT XML locale by locale. See below our roll-out timeline.
The increasing number of brand editors using free Vendor Central, led to a number of UX wishes to simplify the brand editor view and make it fool proof. Now, a brand editor can copy a product data-sheet, limited to brands the user is authorized for.
The functions “Do Group action” and “show batch input” and “Batch select” are all removed from the brand editor view.
Also the menu function “See tickets” is now removed from the view of a brand editor as these tickets are mainly used between Icecat editors.
Finally, the Delete a user function is also dropped. Not just for brand editors but for any normal editor.
In the Stats back-office, we use now strictly CSV in stead of TXT as the standard format for CSV-like statistical usage reports.
We discontinue support for BRP-type images, typically from the Philips feed. From now on our scripts also remove this image type from any product gallery of any product data-sheet in our PIM back-office.
From the HP feed, we stopped to process multimedia objects as these didn’t include useful digital assets. Further, we added support of several HP accessory categories.
Related to the Signify feed regarding Philips branded lighting products, we prepare for the large scale import of multimedia objects.
We applied newly-designed banners on each page of the Manufacturer service pages. An example is here below.
