Updated Viewer-Managed Marketplace Project Viewer

Recommended Posts

An updated Viewer-Managed Marketplace (VMM) project viewer* is now available. See the Release notes for full details. Here is a summary of what has changed:

  • When moving a folder or item to the Marketplace Listings folder, the user is warned that this is a move, not a copy. In order to support copy, “Copy to Marketplace Listings” has been added to the inventory context menu.
  • Added a drop zone to the bottom of the Marketplace Listings folder.
  • Added support for filtering by Listing folder to make it easier to search large number of listings.
  • When creating a listing, if there is only one version folder, that version folder is automatically activated. If there is more than one version folder the user is alerted to activate one.
  • Improved “Check for errors” functionality to only show errors as well as supporting “Check for errors” on a single listing.
  • Error message improvements overall.
  • Removed the ability to “Unassociate Listing” which puts the listing in an unrecoverable state on the Marketplace.
  • Performance improvements to prevent viewer freeze when the Marketplace Listings floater is first opened.

We have not addressed all items. Here is a list of JIRAs which are still open:

  • VMM-20 Include product listing ID in audit listings window results
  • VMM-18 Add "sort by age of listing creation"
  • VMM-17 Support listing folders at any level of Marketplace Listings folder

Please let us know of new suggestions or issues by filing a VMM JIRA.

I can't see any improvement in this new system . And I would like to know if it mean that the old system already is out. I am trying to load my merchant box since last night and it just don't load. If i have no choice to stay at old system it mean that I will have to change my whole store in time to sell something at Valentines Day? I am trying to understand it better but the more I read the worse it seems.

Can you please ask Jeremy Linden to update the Knowledge Base artical to refelct the changes you have listed here ... his last update was 12-05-2014.... Also some pictures of the Invntory windows and folders and other changes would be nice :) 

I beleive that would be helpfull for merchants to use to beta test the changes.

I got to play around with it for a few minutes. I like where it's headed but it seems like there's some room for improvement. I sort of feel like it'd be nice to have the option the in "MARKETPLACE LISTINGS" window to create a new folder. It seems you want to keep more than one copy of a build on hand, so I want to move a copy of the item to my marketplace listings. If I could make folders, I could paste other things into that folder.

I'll probably make a JIRA soon. I'm still really impressed with the performance of sending items to the website.

It might be a good idea to update the merchant log in page on the marketplace website after you log in to see your store. I don't have any analytics data (obviously) but I would assume that gets more traffic than the merchant forums. At least, if you're still looking for feedback.

Will you have a public beta of an importer tool from the old system? Or is it all going to be done on your end?
