Articles

  • Page:
    Article List - Zoned layout An article list page on your site can be presented in a variety of layouts. Similar to a product list, article summary tiles can be presented in a grid, list, or slider format.

    Using the standard layout, the fields on these article tiles can be customised to an extent, but for greater flexibility, a zoned layout allows you to include custom fields, filter content by layer and features, and rearrange widgets on the template.

  • Page:
    Article List Feature Filter —  Add an Article features filter to an article list page

    Article Page - Zoned layout BPD websites come equipped with a clean, well-organised article layout right out of the box. But what if you've got additional content to display in your articles? Or what if you'd prefer a customised page layout, completely unique to your site?

    That's where the zoned layout option comes in! By using a zoned article layout, you can present your article in the layout of your choice, with content arranged as you please.

Categories

  • Page:
    Assign Products in Category Maintenance — Add products while editing a Category.
  • Page:
  • Page:
    CMS Category Maintenance Categories are usually nested, with one or more sub-categories (up to 4), to further sort products. In our example, the Top Level (Level 1) 'Office Products' has two other levels, Level 2 and Level 3 subcategories. 'Writing' is a Level 2 subcategory. It has subcategories as well, which would make it Level 3. One example is 'Ballpoint Pens'. 
  • Page:
    CMS Category Maintenance Settings — Product categories used on your website are initially integrated from your ERP, but if it suits your business processes, you can bypass ERP category integration and opt for complete online maintenance.
  • Page:
  • Page:
    Product Category Quick View To optimise speed in scenarios where live pricing calls are made to PRONTO, Quick View functionality can be enabled. With Quick View, product pricing and availability are not shown on initial page load. Instead, these calls are made to the server on demand when the user clicks 'Quick View'. That data is then cached for the user, thereby improving speed and performance.

      - Disabled: the promo code cannot be used by customers. You can switch it to 'Active'
      Deleted: the promo code is deleted from use altogether and is kept for historical records only. (NOTE - A deleted promo code can be undeleted to 'disabled' and then reactivated.) 

    • Criteria Fail Remove Promo Code
      - ON: the promo code is automatically removed from the cart when contents get updated and promo requirements are no longer met. Users must re-enter the promo code if they want the code to be applied;
      - OFF: the promo code remains in the cart when requirements are not met, If contents get updated and requirements are now met, it will be (re-)applied. 

    • Not Applicable With Other Offers;

    • Free Product To Be Added in Pronto (applies only for Promo Codes that add a free product)

      For Promo Codes with free products, you can choose between adding the free product online upon order submission or in the ERP (Pronto) when the order is integrated. Toggle ON or OFF Free Product To Be Added in Pronto. Default: OFF

      In the order placed, received and confirmation emails, how the free product is displayed depends on the option selected. 

      • When OFF, the free product is added online. In the emails, the free product displays as an item with a cost of $0.00 in the product order line of your Order Summary
        .
      • When ON, the free product is added in the ERP. When you toggle ON this setting, confirm you want the free product added in the ERP. 

        NOTE - Scroll up to the 'Free Product' fields. The fields are now empty and disabled. The free products you previously added for this promo code still apply.  

        The Order Placed, Received and Confirmation emails by default will not display the free product separately in an order line in Order Summary. 
          
        To add a note line about the free product in the Order Summary section, toggle ON the 'Show Note Lines on Individual Lines?' option in the Email Order Summary widget for any applicable email template (e.g., Order Received, Order Placed, Order Confirmation). The Promotion Code and Description will be added to the Order Summary.


        NOTE - For the free product and quantity to appear as an order line item in the sales receipt, they must be added to the sales order manually in Pronto after integration. 
    • Postcode Exclusion List - (for free freight promo codes only) If required, enter single postcodes and/or postcode ranges (each comma-separated) to exclude. Follow Australia Post's four digit conventions so a three digit code would be '0200' instead of '200'.
