October 2021 - Customer portal release notes

Release notes: novum_v3.0.0

CSS Improvements

  • Allows merchants to change the color palette and fonts through specific variables!
  • Through the _styles.css template file, the UI can be modified with a couple of clicks. Definitions for colors are now on lines 9-40, whereas fonts are on lines 44-47.

Order schedule

  • Now the user can set the intervals in non-descending order (for instance, 2, 1, 3)
  • We are rendering frequencies normally and also preventing the creation of products as prepaids. These fixes were added in the _helpers.js file (in functions renderDeliveryOptions and addUpsellHandler)

Product inventory

  • The first check for product inventory is now done on external platforms (Shopify, for instance), setting either for the product to be added disregarding inventory (inventory_management) or verifying inventory beforehand. Lastly, the customer portal will look for the Recharge settings.
  • For more information see How product inventory is handled.

Translations for Customer portal

  • More variables included in the Translations section, covering 100% of Novum’s UI, including things such as the shorthand values for days in the calendar

Adding cursor pagination to Novum

  • When customers navigate between the product pages (either when adding or swapping products, or within the Toss these in section), they end up with the latest data. With this major upgrade we provide our merchants with more reliable information. To implement this feature see this guide: Add cursor pagination to Novum.

Adding Collections feature to default Novum code

  • Now we offer direct access to “Recharge Collections” - built from the ground up to support advanced use-cases through the grouping of products
  • Now, the merchants can create a collection, add products to it and those products will be available in the customer portal through every flow in Novum - when adding a product, when swapping a product or adding a product from Toss these in… section. For more information, see the Product Changelog.
