  • New features to help with the transition
  • New features for stores using their own credit card processor

Scheduler

The Scheduler feature gives Store Admins the ability to schedule content on their website to be published and unpublished at specified dates in the future. This will be particularly useful for events and blog posts as they can be created in advance but scheduled to be published on a later date.
 

Quick Note Field for Orders

The Quick Note field provides Store and Order administrators a field in which notes may be added to an order and displayed on the Order Administration page (Store > Orders).
A couple of  scenarios where other IndieCommerce stores have used this field:

In-Store Pick-up Pane

If ‘In-Store Pickup’ is enabled on your site, customers can opt to pick up their order at your store instead of having it shipped. A Pick-up Pane will be available on the checkout screen. We’ve updated it so that you can customize the language used in the pane.

Navigate to: Store > Configuration > Checkout > Pick-up Options Pane

Cart Settings

Your shopping cart is configured by default, however, there are settings you can adjust to alter the shopping experience for your customers.

BASIC SETTINGS

  1. PANES

Block Title Link

The Block Title Link feature allows you to turn the title of a block into a link to direct customers to a page on your site.

NOTE: The feature is enabled by request only. Please navigate to Store > Configuration > Account Information & Preferences > Store Features and submit a request for it to be enabled.

Navigate to Structure > Blocks > Select edit for the block you want to adjust the title for

Preorders
