Backward compatibility -- A note for users prior Workspace 15

Workspace 15 is a major platform upgrade. PublishedService based e-commerce sites are incompatible with the webshop platform and it is not possible to automatically convert existing sites to use the new platform.

However both old and new platforms can co-exist but platforms are mutually exclusive: only one platform at a time can be enabled. Platform selection can be configured in the system module's webshop settings.

Upgrading from Workspace 13.x version to Workspace 15 version does not break the layout or functionality of your existing shops. With existing shop the first thing to do is to disable the webshop platform from the webshop settings in the system module.

As with every other Workspace upgrade, it is recommended to test the upgrade in test environment before updating production environment.

New features
  • Inventory management is now included by default. Products can be hidden based on their availability. Also a warning text can be shown if the inventory amount is getting low. The inventory management also supports optionbased inventory amounts and hiding those options that are not available. Product inventory amounts can be updated automatically on order creation and when the order is modified. The inventory management also supports updating the amounts when the order is cancelled or the ordered items are modified in the administration interface.
  • An order history can now be represented for registered customers. The registered customer can browse their previous orders and see related information about the order. The ordered items can also be restored back to the current shopping basket for making a new order. The order history is also a good way to keep the customer better informed with their order's processing. Registered customers can also save their current shopping basket for later use with the new Saveable basket feature.
  • Searching orders has been largely improved. The new search supports also searching by reference number or by ordered item's information.
  • Automatic emails can now be sent when the customer's information has been modified.
  • Mass removing of customers and a feature to reset the customer number sequence. It's now more easy to clean the testing customers before opening the shop to the public.
  • Products can now be forced to be ordered only in specified amounts. For example you can configure a product to be ordered only groups of 4. Thus the customer could only order the product in the amounts of 4,8,12,16, etc.
  • Upgraded most of the used 3rd party libraries to newer versions.
  • Destinations of automatic emails can be configured by using template variables. For example a notification about a new order by a customer can now be automatically sent to the customer's contact person.
  • Pictures and item codes can now be links to the product page in ProductLists and ProductPromotion WAEs. We have found that most users automatically click on the product picture when they want to see the product's page. Now this is finally supported. This also enables product promotions that include just the product pictures.
  • Workspace now has support for plugins that can be used to customize the shop. The plugins have been architected so that they don't compromise the updateability of the shop. The plugins are externally packaged jar files which can be deployed easily to a running Workspace. Customizations created by plugins include for example delivery options and pricing by customer's own business rules, advanced search options not supported by default, changing the shop flow to support one time ordering for a customer. Indeed the plugins have proved to be a good solution for providing customized behaviour so if some Workspace functionality isn't exactly what you need, we'll create a plugin!
