System Update - December 2021 - Discover the latest updates to My Gadget Repairs

As always, our team’s core focus is to deliver a seamless experience for our users. We have been busy working on product improvements over the past month and wanted to share a few highlights.

Settings:

  • Product 
    • Sell Serialised Stock w/o Serial Selection
      • This option will allow you to sell serialized stock even if you don't have it, by default the system will not let you sell or put the serialized item on backorder if it's not in stock. This option will allow you to do that.
    • Stock
      • Stock Expiry In Days
        • You can already set the stock's expiry date (Shelf life for the stock) however we have added an option to set that date by default so when you're adding the stock you don't have to choose it and it will be prefilled for you.
  • Ticket
    • Additional Notification Emails
      • We have added an option to add "Additional Notification Emails" to a ticket, that will allow you to add more emails when you send "Ticket Comments" notifications. By default, the "Ticket Comments" notifications ONLY go to just the customer as long as they have opted in.
    • Custom Fields
      • Required Rules
        • We have added a new option called "Required Rules" to allow you to expand the behaviour of the "Required" flow. You can set additional rules based on other "Custom Field's Data" which will determine if this field should be required or not. E.g. this field will be required only if the user selects "Plus Net" from the "Network" custom field. You can define as many rules on one field.
        • Please note that the "Required Rules" are only available on the following interfaces.
          • New Ticket
