Feed transformation becomes even more powerful
We're always looking at the app with fresh eyes and you in mind. Check out the following additions that will help you sell in more places and make mapping your feeds all that much simpler.
Copy single fields is now easy peasy
Have you ever been mapping a feed and wished you could just take one rule to another channel rather than the whole feed? Now you can! In addition to copying whole feeds to use on another channel, you can just copy a single field. This will save you time and energy that you can use elsewhere.
Copying a single field could come in handy if you’ve extensively mapped a rule exactly how you want it, and would like to implement it on your other channels.
New channels alert!
DataFeedWatch now officially supports over 2000 channels. Here’s some of the most recent to make the list:
- Neocom - Now also available for Germany
They describe their product as 'AI powered guided selling'. It helps customers pick the right products for them with unique conversations.
- Reelevant - Now also available in the USA
Create visual content on demand for your website with unique variations.
- Upptec - available in many countries
Digitalizing the insurance claim process so that you have more time to focus on your clients.
- Facebook Marketplace - USA
A "buy and sell" community where businesses and individuals can post local listings.
If you want to sell on a channel that isn’t included here, let us know! We’d love to make a custom channel for you.
New feed templates
1. We’ve added a new feed template for Amazon Marketplace UK: Shoes and Bags. You can start using it right away to get your products listed.
2. Bol has changed their content feed requirements, so we updated ours as well. We developed an API (Application Programming Interface) connection so you can upload your products without disruption.
Find exactly what you're looking for with new search abilities
Find what you’re looking for with our added search capabilities. You’ll be able to use them in a few new places. Let’s find out what you can search for and where:
Copy from other shop
While you’re in the Internal Fields section of the app, you can click on ‘Copy from other shop’. A drop down menu and search bar will appear where you can search for one of your shops by name or ID number.
This will just make it all that more easy to find the exact shop you’re looking for.
Copy from other channel
You’ll also be able to search for your other channels while in the ‘Map fields’ section of the app. They can be found either by name or ID number.
Now when you’re setting the update schedule for your shop, you can easily find the time zone you’re looking for. Just type in the time zone name or capital city of that area and it will appear in the dropdown menu.
Looking for products based on how they were sourced? Now you can find them in seconds. Head over to the ‘Channel products’ or ‘Shop products’ section of the app and choose the source you’d like to locate, like this:
Have an idea? Submit a feature request!
Have an idea for a feature you’d like to see? We’d love to hear it! That’s why we created a special place just for you to do this. Head on over to the feature request site and give us your ideas.
Use this form to create a post that other DataFeedWatch clients can see as well.
But that’s not all you can do here! It works kind of like a forum. Click on the down arrow to see the features and integration requests other people have submitted. That way you can vote for the ideas you like to give us an idea of what’s the most popular.
We can’t wait to hear from you!
That’s all the updates we have for today. But, don’t forget you can always check the release notes page if you’re curious what we’re up to behind the scenes. We’re also looking forward to hearing your ideas, so keep them coming. Until next time!
