New Aleyant Pressero and eDocBuilder™ Releases Now Available
Character Counter for Text Fields Added
A somewhat small, but helpful enhancement has been added to eDocBuilder text fields. You can now add a character counter to the text fields your customers customize to help them know how much text is available to them for a given field. It can be a bit of a mystery on how much text you can still enter when you set a limit on the characters allowed in a field… well no longer! To enable this option look for “Display Character Counter” in the Data Capture tab in the Field Designer or the Field Setup area.
Field Designer Update
As mentioned in our previous eDocBuilder Blog Posted on April 5, 2018, our all new Field Designer has been released for you to try out! We’ve been getting great feedback on this new feature and customers are already seeing it save them time while creating their templates. The items enabled since our last blog are:
- You can now rotate fields on Center or Lower Left corner for Form Templates.
- Set image fields to upload from Assets only, Desktop only, or Both.
- You can now set a maximum length for text fields.
- We added the option to include character counters to text fields.
- We have now completed the Rules Panel for image and text fields.
More updates coming soon!
Hide Previously Viewed History in Storefronts
A common question asked of our support team is how can one hide the History (or Previously Viewed) area in the storefront. In the past, the answer was to add custom CSS to the Head Content area. With this last release, we now have an option for you to hide that area on a specific skin. To locate this option, go to Admin > Sites [select site] > Skins > Additional Skin Options section > Hide History Panel. If you are already hiding this area with custom CSS, we highly recommend removing that code from the head content area to avoid any future problems with you skin and use this solution instead.
Product Assets When Part of a Kit Are Now Provided in Order Detail Area of Admin
In the past, we’ve instructed you to assign any necessary product assets to the Kit itself (not the components) if you wanted them to be included in the Admin Orders > File tab. Understanding that not all kit components might be ordered in the kit, we made a change that will now pass the assets that are assigned to your kit components. This way we limit the files that were part of the kit items your customer ordered to what is being passed to you. Along with this, if you allow those assets (or selected assets) to be available to your customers on the product pages, all the assets for those components will be listed and available for download.
Help Provided in Site Navigation Setup
We recently updated the Admin Navigation area and in hindsight we thought it would have been helpful to you if we would have added some descriptive text beside each of the menus to explain where that menu would be located in your storefront. It might be a few weeks late, but you will now see this addition (see screenshot below). If you missed the new navigation changes, you can refer to our previous blog posted on March 28, 2018.
