CMExtension team would like to announce the new features in CMGroupBuying 2.1.0 and 2.2.0 which will be released soon.
We plan to release CMGroupBuying 2.1.0 in the next upcoming weeks with the following new features:
CMGroupBuying 2.2.0 will be released in the middle of May. The new features in this release are:
At the present time there are 3 menu items for partner to manage coupon and deal: Partner area, deal management, deal submission. With the new management area, all these 3 functions will be available in 1 place, there is also a new section for commission report. You can configure what function partner is able to see or what action partner can do in back-end, for example you can configure to let buyer detail not available for partner to see.
Partner area, deal management, deal submission menu items are not removed. So there will be no problem if you are using these menu items. But you should switch to the new management area soon, in a near future these 3 menu items will be removed.
You can see a screenshot of partner area that we are developing at the top of this article.
If your group buying site is managed by many team members or by a company, you would like to give some of your team members permission to manage coupon and order without giving them access to Joomla!'s back-end. For example, your staff need to have access to customer orders to answer customer's question about order or coupon status when your customer ring your office's phone; or they have ability to change the order status to "Paid" when customer's bank transfer payment comes to your bank account... Similar to partner's management area, you can configure what function your staff can see and can use in Joomla!'s backend.
We hope you will like these new features.
Thank you for your support!
