  • E-mail Marketing

    Type: Upgrade
    Title: Do not include recipients in subgroups when sending out mails in Email Marketing
    Feature details: This is a change of behaviour in email marketing. All groups to recieve an email must now be selected individually in the "To"- box. Recipients in subgroups are no longer included.

  • New Indexing

    Type: Upgrade
    Title: Changes to new Indexing
    Feature details: With Dynamicweb 8.6.1.7, the system names of custom fields in the ProductIndexBuilder have changed. They are now prefixed with 'CustomField_'. This means that all indexes using the ProductIndexBuilder and ProductIndexSchemaExtender must be rebuilt. Also, queries and facet groups using custom fields must be changed to use the new system names.
    Release: 8.6.1.7
  • Payment\Quickpay

    Type: Technical
    Title: Quickpay Payment Window checkout Handler ("new platform")
    Feature details: We have made a new QuickPay checkout handler because QuickPay has released a new version based on a new platform. QuickPay makes a silent launch because they are still bugfixing the new platform and not all features are not implemented in the new platform yet. We recommend that you use the "old" QuickPay for your payment cards for now. But if you want to use "Danske bank Mobile Pay" through QuickPay, we suggest that you create it as a single payment method through "Quickpay Payment Window" checkout handler and use the "old" QuickPay checkout handler for the rest of the payment cards that you want to use.
    Release: 8.6.1.6
  • Access (db)

    Type: Technical
    Title: Support for Access database is being phased out
    Feature details: Support for Access database is being phased out. We strongly recommend upgrading to SQL before upgrading to Dynamicweb 8.6.1.
    Release: 8.6.1.0
  • Platform

    Type: Technical
    Title: Convert existing translation Access MDB to SQLite3 DB
    Feature details: Translation database has been upgraded from Microsoft Access to SQLite3. Support for storing translations in SQL Server has been removed.
    Release: 8.6.1.0
  • Customer Center

    Type: Upgrade
    Title: Added .clean extension for Ecom:CustomerCenter.SortBy tags in order list
    Feature details: We have implemented a .clean extension for the sorting tags in the Customer Center order list, but a few clean tags existed already. The existing clean tags rendered the full URL path with http instead of only /Default... E.g. Ecom:CustomerCenter.SortByPaymentMethod.Desc.Clean, Ecom:CustomerCenter.SortByShippingMethod.Asc.Clean, Ecom:CustomerCenter.SortByPrice.Asc.Clean). With 8.6.1. the existing .clean tags are changed to render /Default... instead of http.... This means that a tag like Ecom:CustomerCenter.SortByPaymentMethod.Desc.Clean that rendered this before: http://yoursite.dk/Default.aspx?ID=2137&CC7332=Orders&Dwtemplatetags=true&CCOrderByField7332=PaymentMethod&CCSortOrder7332=Desc Now renders this: Ecom:CustomerCenter.SortByPaymentMethod.Desc.Clean, /Default.aspx?ID=2137&CC7332=Orders&Dwtemplatetags=true&CCOrderByField7332=PaymentMethod&CCSortOrder7332=Desc
    Release: 8.6.1.0
