Fix the Basics

A. Product Basics - Preferred Product Name (ESF-5268)

Exports Refactor

Our export process for Fix The Basics, Winning Campaigns and Pricing were improved to ensure that the process is more robust and does not timeout, as well as speeding up the time taken to complete an export. (ESF-5317, ESF-5333, ESF-5334)

Winning Campaigns Export - add a year ago view

A. To enable year on year comparison of promotions, a new option has been added to the Winning Campaigns export to allow a year ago view. The top row displays the current year, and the row directly below displays the same week of the previous year.


Price Alerts - Released a NEW Email Service

Users can be configured to receive the appropriate level of alerting that suits their role. From on the day alerts, daily and weekly summaries. (ESF-5526, ESF-5721)

A. Twice daily Price Alert email to users inbox, at 8am and 2pm. The 8am email will include all price alerts that have been processed from 12:01am to 8am, and the 2pm email captures all price alerts that have been processed from 12:01am to 2pm that day.


B. Added daily summary email which captures the full day, sent at 8am the next morning. The email alert includes all price alerts captured from 12:01am to 11:59pm for yesterday. (ESF-5678)

Filter Bar/Client Config - exclude sub categories

A. Where we have more than one client operating the same category we have now enabled the ability to include/exclude specific sub categories from the filter bar as per client request. (ESF-4829)

Filter Bar - Move "select all" Button

To make it easier to select and deselect from the filter bar option, the select all option has been moved to the header of the section so that it can be easily clicked, without having the expand the individual sections. (ESF-5545)

Execute Your Category Vision - New Products

A. Added category toggle buttons for filtering so that now the Execute Your Category Vision dashboard can be used for any of your categories. *Note that you will need New SKU’s for a category for the dashboard to populate. If you need to add New SKU’s please get in contact with your Customer Success Manager. (ESF-5541, ESF-5520)


B. Added 4 search terms for filtering on the Easy To Buy widget. These 4 search terms are defaulted to the first 4 in your list.


C. Product ranging widget - can see products ranged and not ranged. Above the axis shows which products are being ranged per retailer, and below the axis shows which products are not being ranged. (ESF-5599, ESF-5522)


Clicking on the individual retailer column will then display in list format the products which are ranged, and those which are not, including the product name and the GTIN.


Easy To Buy

A. Updated the scoring mechanism and colour coding on Easy to Buy top level report (ESF-5514)

B. Each search term is compared to a total weighted average across all retailers, and then the individual retailer search term score is displayed and colour coded against the total weighted average.

C. Eg. Search Term “cat food”, has a weighted average across all retailers as 80.8%
Sainsbury’s has a 92% Share of voice for search term “cat food”, this is greater than the weighted average of 80.8% and will therefore display in green.
Iceland has a 52.6% Share of voice for the search term “cat food”, this is less than the weighted average of 80.8% and will therefore display in red.

D. Increased the clickable area on the buttons through to the Weighted Share of Voice and the Search Term By Retailer and By Search Term reports to improve usability of buttons.(ESF-4629)

E. Improved the display of the loading icon on Weighted Share of Voice (ESF-5552)
