Product Update, November 2018

New Features

  • Your Activity Summary notifications now contain pre-authorisation expiring dates to help you keep better track of payment authorisations that are going to expire.
  • When editing a single order, Troly will now show you the parcel sizes that have been chosen in the ‘Carton Sizes’ field. The ‘Carton Sizes’ field changes as you change the shipping configuration for a specific order. You can still view the total number of parcels by reviewing the ‘Tracking Numbers’ field as usual.
  • Shipment label numbers are now added to the label CSV files.

Updates

  • Your End of Period report now breaks down sales per POS, Guest – POS, Staff-created, and Guest – Staff-created orders in the Revenue by Source section.
  • You may now enter more than 255 characters in the Delivery Notes and Instructions field. However, be aware that if the field contains more than 255 characters, Troly will truncate these instructions to fit on future shipping labels as the information contained in this field is published on your shipment labels. Troly notifies you if this is the case.
  • If you have entered a membership description in Troly, this is now also published under your members profile pages.
  • On the POS add-on, decide if you want to download a customer list at sign-in or not. Loading customers when logging in will slow down the time it takes to login but will speed up searching for customers within the app.

Product Updates, August 2018

August, you have been one very busy month 🤩 A lot of work has been done in regards to the payment pre-authorisation logic, the team has made it easier for you to know, at a glance, where things are at in Troly. Also, a lot of improvement has been made to ensure a smoother user experience when using Troly, as an account owner and as a wine drinker. Lots of behind-the-scene-work has been completed, and there is more to come. We hope you’ll enjoy the new membership variation feature as well!

New Features

  • An issue where the carton size selected for an order was not being properly displayed in Troly has been fixed.

  • Your Operations dashboard now reflects the amount of time left for each pre-authorised order to be paid before the pre-authorisation is being cancelled. You will see a message saying ‘Authorisation expires in 4 days from now‘. When the pre-authorisation is cancelled, Troly will add a message to the order so that you will see these orders at a glance.
  • If you charge your customer’s credit card after the pre-authorisation has expired, Troly will not capture the card pre-authorisation, it will simply charge the credit card on file.
