Product Update, September 2019

Spring has sprung and so has this month’s update! We’ve got even more updates coming, but here’s a look at what we have released this week

New Features

Custom offline payment types
You can now specify offline payment types in Troly. Visit the Offline Payments add-on to start creating.

Once a single payment is recorded against this offline payment type, it cannot be removed. At present, the POS and Troly WordPress plugin do not support these new custom types.

New Email Template – Shipment In Transit
Send emails to your customers when a shipment is currently in transit with the carrier.

New Email Template – Out for Delivery
Send emails to your customers when a shipment has reached the final stage of delivery – being on board with the driver.

Improvements

Better status filters and shipping information
We’ve made some tweaks to the layout of the status filter dropdown on the Operations section of the platform. For shipments, you can now check the following statuses:

StatusPurpose
Waiting to be collectedThe shipment has 1 or more parcels that the customer needs to pick up
In-transitThe shipment is moving through the carrier’s systems
Out for deliveryTroly has been advised that the shipment is now on-board with the driver for delivery
RedirectedThe carrier was required to send the parcel elsewhere – by customer or carrier direction
DeliveredThe shipment is now with the customer

We’ve also added two new status filters to help flag those shipments that have not moved or received any updates

StatusPurpose
Shipments not DeliveredDisplay shipments not yet marked by the carrier as “delivered”
Shipments not UpdatedDisplay shipments that have been dispatched, not marked delivered for more than 5 calendar days.

Finally, we now show the Dispatched At dates and times for shipments so you can know the precise date you, or another staff member, dispatched a shipment.

Reconciliations and Bank Transfers

If you use our Troly Group Payment gateway, it has always been that you may receive two transfers for a single day.

From today, Troly will reconcile just after midnight, in your local timezone, and now show a single bank transfer for a given day. This means we can ensure that late-night payments are accounted for and your bank reconciliations will have one transfer amount to verify.

Thanks to everyone who has provided us feedback on this topic!

Tasting Experience

The “Pickup” option on the Tasting Experience confirmation page now reads “Click and collect” with address details for your customers to pickup.

Fixes

The “Customer Bounced SMS” template now saves correctly

Product Update, August 2019

We’ve released a few updates this month for you, to improve your Troly experience.

    • Date of Birth (DOB)
    • Membership hold date
    • Preferences
    • Custom tags
    • “Subscribed to Newsletter” status
  • Activity Summary email can now send “Daily Takings”
    • This table comes from the End of Period report
  • Shipping errors are now returned and shown from the carrier.
    • These will appear as a “Shipping error” on the Order edit page

Fixes

Membership numbers have now been fixed to correctly increment. If you had duplicate membership numbers, we’ve already fixed this data for you.

As a refresh, here are just some of the supported membership numbers Troly now allows:

Product Update #2, July 2019

We’ve improved Troly for you this week, bringing many improvements to the platform.

New Features

  • Send SMS to a warehouse, sales, or admin staff when orders have been packed in Troly
    1. Review the template to make sure it works for your company
    2. Turn on SMS messages in the Activity Summary add-on
  • For non-admin users, you can enable them as a “warehouse” staff member to let them get notices about orders needing packing without giving them access to Troly. Send a message to the team to enable this for specific staff members

Improvements

  • Added “First delivery date” to the New Member email template
  • Ability to filter by packed and labeled pick-up orders: Once an order has been packed or labeled, we will show this in the Pick-ups list.
  • Rich-formatting for product description or tasting note fields has been turned off to avoid issues with labels not generating correctly or your website showing incorrect formatting.
  • Product tags can now be enabled to show on the Tasting Experience
  • “New Order” and “New Shipment” Activity Feed items will now show who created the order/shipment
  • Renamed casecontent to ordercontent in email templates to clarify what Troly will put in said emails
  • When adding a new customer, if the email exists already, we will show an alert to let you know

Fixes

  • The Birthday SMS field not allowing some personalization fields. Adding all fields from the drop-down will now work as expected

Product Update, July 2019

New Features

  • Other Carrier Add-on: You can now add shipping carriers not directly supported by Troly for filtering and sorting using the Other Carrier add-on. This add-on will let you create new carriers, upload a logo and then process shipments using these add-ons.
  • New Emails: We’ve added some more templates for you to improve your customer and member experience:
  • Refunded Payment Email: Found under the Payments tab in your Communication Settings, the Refunded Payment email is a courtesy email that can be sent after you refund an order. Troly will schedule the email to go out within 12 hours of your refund. Should you then re-pay the same order, the pending refund email is canceled and the payer will receive a second email.
  • Membership Cancellation Email: When members cancel their membership, you can now send them a quick message to say that you’ve actioned their request. You can now unsubscribe from the Newsletter when canceling a membership.
  • Membership Suspension Email: When you choose to suspend a membership, instead of canceling it, Troly can now be set up to let the member know you’ve actioned their request and the date they will return from suspension. You can now unsubscribe from the Newsletter when suspending a membership.

Updates

  • Alphanumeric Membership Number: You can now use a member number made up of letters and numbers for your clubs. Troly increments the rightmost numbers wherever possible, where 2-5 numbers are present (see table below).
  • Review Pending Orders for Canceled Membership: When canceling a membership, Troly will now give you direct links to orders outstanding before canceling the membership.
  • Shipping Fees based on order value or weight: Your shipping fees have leveled up and can now use a shipment’s product total or weight value before assigning the Final Delivery Fee to an order. Head on over to your Shipping configuration add-on to try it out!
  • Re-Captcha on Tasting Experience: We have enabled Google Re-Captcha on the Tasting Experience to stop bots trying to sign up.
  • Billing Email: For customers wanting to receive invoices to a separate email (eg. restaurants) you can now capture a separate email under billing details. Emails with an invoice attached will be automatically cc’ed to that address. Only available for “on accounts” customers.
  • Activity recorded for Shipping Carrier change: When changing a customer’s Preferred delivery carrier, Troly will now record an activity item for you to see in their feed.
  • Australia Post – Better Flexibility with Delivery Center: If you use more than one delivery center with Troly, your Australia Post account will now require you to set up a different account with us. Visit your Australia Post add-on to check if you need to get in touch with the team.

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.
