Below, a summary of the Icecat Release Notes 114. In these notes, we describe the creation of Icecat PDFs when a manufacturer has no PDFs, requiring unique emails for user accounts, adding an editorial agenda in Vendor Central, and a few miscellaneous functional improvements.
As announced before, we implemented an auto-generated PDF of product data-sheets. It’s handy for brands that don’t have PDFs available and for their channel partners and consumers. Because of copyright concerns, we limit it to Open Icecat brands, as we have a syndication right for these. The PDF function generates a standard PDF based on the available product data in case that there is no Product Brochure PDF available from the respective brand. We added a timestamp and our standard website disclaimer.

We added an extra validation to the Registration and My Profile pages to restrict new account creation or profile updates by requiring unique email addresses. Unique email address reduces the creation of unused accounts and reduces confusion when password reminders are requested. Over time, we’ll enforce unique email addresses also to existing accounts.
In the brand rank page, we applied small changes related to Teseek’s average review score per brand:
In the coverage from file report, we added a new Vertical column next to Category column for each language or locale. This information helps to advise customers about the Verticals they probably need to subscribe to.
The recently added Bengali language appeared higher than English in the suggestion box when a user enters “eng” during marketing text creation in the Vendor Central (our editorial PIM).
To support requests for multiple user names at once:
When an editor starts to edit a product data-sheet but misses some information, he can store a review date in the agenda. This is a reminder to return to this product at a later time when more data is likely to be available. It’s a preparation for Cedemo project integration. We’ll have a lot of products imported and editors should have the option to search the products that were edited in the past but will need additional attention in the near future.
