Aero Changelog 0.34.1 27/05/24

Welcome to the first edition of our Aero Commerce Changelog. These posts will document the changes and new features being introduced in the Aero Commerce platform. Each month we will detail which new features have been introduced to the core platform as well as a selection of popular modules that add additional features.

Aero Commerce has evolved significantly since its inception just a few years ago, there is a lot to unpack in this months Changelog so lets get stuck in.

Aero Commerce Core Reaches Version 0.34.1

With core reaching 0.34.1 aerocommerce/admin is now at 1.28.1. Here are some of the highlights of what has been introduced recently.

Preview Emails

It is now possible to preview what an email will look like directly in the admin dashboard. By going to Configuration > Mail Notifications and clicking on any of the email templates, you can click on the eye icon and select existing store data to see how the email will display.

Variant SKUs Update with Model

Previously a manual task, product variant SKUs will now update along with changes made to the product model.

Managing Price Lists Just Got a Whole Lot Easier

You can create price lists for certain customer groups or conditions. Previously, managing these lists could be a laborious task but now with the introduction of being able to add price changes based on Filters, Categories, Brand or other conditions, as well as being able to filter and search, managing these price lists has become a breeze.

Reindex Search in the Admin Panel

Reindexing in Elasticsearch is like organising a library. Imagine you have a library with lots of books, and over time, some of those books need updating or rearranging. Reindexing is like tidying up the shelves or updating the books to keep everything in order.

In the past, reindexing could only be done using complex commands on the command line. But now, there’s an easier way! If you’re using Elasticsearch, you can find a reindexing option in the admin panel under Configuration > System > Search Index. This is handy when you want to quickly refresh your store’s search indexers. For example, if a product you need isn’t showing up online, reindexing can help make it appear.

So, think of it as a way to keep your ‘library’ organised and efficient!

Product Types

Product types is a new feature in Aero Commerce that allows you to build a template that can be used for similar products across the site. You can set the specific attributes against the product as well as add additional settings by choosing various fields such as text, select, check box, or even image uploads. Below is a brief demo showing this in action. Settings Definitions can be created under Configuration > System > Manage Setting Definitions. Creating a template can be done under Configuration > General > Product types where you can add attributes and settings created under setting definitions. This can then be applied to products upon creation to apply to the set product type template.

Shipping Costs Update on Edited orders

When editing an order such as adding or removing an item you can now click the refresh button to recalculate the shipping cost or manually set a shipping cost of your choosing.
