🌟New, more user-friendly Integration Flow for WooCoomerce, ShopWare, and OpenCart

After in-depth research, we’ve designed and implemented a more user-friendly and efficient integration path.

Refer to the Help Articles to dig deeper into the new process:Β

πŸŽ‰ New Feed-Based Text Ads Registration Process

Formerly, users who wanted to use Feed-Based Text Ads as a standalone service had to request our experts to create the account.Β 

We have improved the flow and made it way more automatic.Β 

Now the new users don’t need to wait until the request is completed but sign up directly on our Feed-Based Text Ads Landing Page.Β 

πŸ›Delated products from Shopify are still visible in DataFeedWatch.

Hi, Shopify users! You may have noticed that some of the products you removed from your Shopify store were still visible in your DataFeedWatch product list.Β 

We discovered that some code mismatch caused us to copy information from your data feed faster than information about your deleted products. Our development team identified the issue and made changes.Β 

Now the status of your products in DataFeedWatch shows the actual situation in the store.

πŸ›Β  The Price Watch’s Product Selector is not working.

Some users have encountered an "Internal Server Error" when using the Product Selector on Price Watch.Β 

We encountered a technical glitch that impeded the smooth operation of the Product Selector, and we fixed the issue.Β 

Released on 02 Feb 2023

πŸ‘‹ We've removed the β€œConnections” from the Navigation Bar.

You could have noticed that the Connections tab disappeared from our side navigation.

The navigation bar is where we aim to keep the essential options. Since the option "Connections" was usually confusing for our users, we decided to remove it.

πŸŽ‰Now, you can choose which product data you want to download!

Want to download the selected data of your shop or channel products from the product table instead of an extensive data file? Now it’s possible!

Once you want to download your product data, go to the Shop or Channel Products, and click on the preferable format of the file, and we’ll ask you whether you want to download the in-depth database or the file with the selected values.

πŸš€ We are migrating Amazon Feeds from DataFeedWatch to Cart Marketplace Management

It’s happening! Today, January 17th, 2023, we are migrating the Amazon data feeds from DataFeedWatch toΒ Cart Marketplace Management.

As we explained in our emails to our Amazon users, it doesn’t mean their Amazon output feeds will disappear from DataFeedWatch. WeΒ will keep themΒ as it is today, and they will continue to be refreshed daily.

The only change is thatΒ the upload to Amazon will no longer be done by DataFeedWatch, but by our sister company SellerActive.SellerActive is 100% specialized in Amazon and other marketplaces, bringing more stability, experience, and functionalities for you to succeed on Amazon, like re-pricing software to help you win the Buy Box.

If you have the Amazon feed in DataFeedWatch, we asked you to create yourΒ FREE Seller Active accountΒ by filling out the application form to facilitate the migration process.

  • If you have sent the migration application form, one of our colleagues from Seller Active might reach out to you and set up your free Seller Active account.

We will keep your Amazon data feed, but from today, your data feed upload to Amazon will be handled by Seller Active.

  • If you haven’t sent the migration application form,Β we will keep your Amazon feed in DataFeedWatchΒ as it is today, and it will be refreshed every day, but yourΒ product feed won’t be uploaded to your AmazonΒ account.

Please get in touch with our support if you want to migrate your Amazon feed to Seller Active or encounter any disruption related to this change.

Here you can learn more aboutΒ Cart Marketplace Management.

πŸ‘‹ Bye, byeΒ  Google Text Ads, and welcome Feed-Based Text Ads!

As you probably noticed, we have replaced the name of our Google Text Ads tool with Feed-Based Text Ads.

We wanted to avoid the confusion resulting from similar naming of general Google’s service Google Ads and highlight the main potential of the tool, which is the possibility of building your Search Campaigns on your fully optimized data feed.

This change won’t affect any of the functionalities of the Feed-Based Text Ads, nor your Search Campaign settings.

In DataFeedWatch, you can decide if your account users should have access to Analytics service. If you do not allow them, they do not have access to Analytics service, and they shouldn't see this option on the main menu.

Released on 22 Feb 2022


πŸŽ‰ Shop List Improvements: You Can Now Mark and Copy Shop's Name! And More.

We've noticed some things in the new shop list still needed a tweak. In this release, we've made marking and copying your shop's name possible again. We also did brainstorming on responsiveness, and so the longer shop names are now getting wrapped, and the Services column can disappear if you're using a smaller screen.

πŸŽ‰ Shop Transfer Request Form Improvements

Shop Transfer option is available in Shop Settings of the relevant shop. Until now, this was true for any user accessing Shop Settings.

Anyone, wanting us to move their shop to another DataFeedWatch account, like your Agency's account or that of another user's, had to fill-in a special form received in a conversation with our Support.

Now, you can request the same thing, going directly to the App, and then navigating to your shop's settings. This way your form is way nicer and shorter to fill in. Another advantage is that this way we've made the process more secure.

πŸŽ‰ Preview of Channel Mapping Showing What Internal Fields Include

When you create rules to decide what will appear in your channel, you often use Internal Fields (for a variety of reasons). But when you already have a rule, and you're checking it with the Preview πŸ‘οΈ option, you could only see the names of Internal Fields used. Now, you get a same-window preview of what's in there. So you don't need to navigate back to your shop's Internal Fields to check it. You can unfold any Internal Field there, one by one.

πŸŽ‰ Internal Fields in Advanced Filters in Preview πŸ‘οΈ

Until now, you couldn't use Internal Fields to filter out products in the preview. Now, you can click Advanced Filters, and select any Input Field or Internal Field to find the product you were looking for.

πŸŽ‰ New and Improved Mapping and Search Dropdowns

The main problem to solve here was that users had hard time to find input fields in the mapping selector since it was by default set to Internal Fields, and it was necessary to switch the tab to Input Fields to find it. We've changed the main dropdown, so that all fields (Input Fields, Internal Fields, but also Date, Text Fields, etc.) are available and searchable instantly, but still grouped separately for clarity.

πŸŽ‰ More Areas where Exclude Associated Variants is Used

We've come up with Exclude Associated Variants a long time ago, and as a feature it proved useful for many customers.

Now, every time you add channels with the Sale Price field (e.g. Google, Facebook, Bing, etc.), we'll add a rule to use your Sale Price from Internal Fields. It's especially useful for sources like Shopify, where creating it may become a nightmare sometimes.

πŸŽ‰ Date Unification to DD MMM YYYY Formatβ€”Completed

This time, we've completed implementing new dates format throughout the app, that is DD MMM YYYY (e.g. 27 Jul 2021). We did it to make sure all our global clients can understand the dates.

Released on 27 Jul 2021


πŸŽ‰ Date Unification to DD MMM YYYY Formatβ€”Emails

This time, we've introduced the new dates format to all emails sent from the app. The format we're aiming to apply throughout the app is DD MMM YYYY. An example of such date is 27 Jul 2021. We did it to make sure you, that is all our global clients, understand the date correctly. We're still working on this unification, so the date format may still differ in some parts of the app. Of course, you can also encounter other dates format in other email communication received from our Sales and Marketing teams.

πŸŽ‰ 3dcart Becomes Shift4Shop

3dCart recently rebranded to Shift4Shop. We've therefore changed the logo and name also throughout our app. While adding a shop or editing it, you will now see the updated details.

πŸŽ‰ Shopify API Upgrade

Shopify has updated its API, so we had to implement the relevant changes also on our side. This one's rather technical, and shouldn't change anything if you're already using Shopify in DataFeedWatch.


πŸ› FTP Upload Issues

We've recently spotted a problem with FTP upload for certain customer. The previously working FTP credentials suddenly didn't allow us to connect. We had to change connections settings to get it working again.

πŸ› Processing Failed in Feed Review

This error appeared in Feed Review, even for correctly processed channels. There was some technical issue behind it that our tech team successfully solved.

There was an issue preventing you from accessing a broken channel. Now, this error shouldn't appear, at least when you only access it. If it's still broken, try reaching out to us.

Released on 13 Jul 2021


πŸŽ‰ Unified Information Pills

We used to have multiple styles of showing pills across the app. What are pills? It's the rounded, pill-shaped styling around words.

Now how it looks is unified. Here's a list of some pills you can come across: fields in combine rule, category name, Updates Schedule items like times of updates or status, fields in Add Optional Field modal, Feed Review pie chart items.


πŸ› Breaking View of Internal Fields When Scrolling

Some users encountered a problem with Internal Field view, where one of the fields stuck to the top of the page.

πŸ› Missing Active Item Coloring in Source Dropdown

After adding a search function to the Source dropdown on Shop Products page, the blue highlight color for an active element has disappeared. We've now added it, so it looks as intended.

πŸ› Categories Dropdown Tooltips Displayed Incorrectly

Text in categories dropdown tooltips had some symbols escaped and displayed incorrectly.
