Party list enhancements

 

Improvement

  

We've rolled out a few quality-of-life improvements to the Party list page that should help you streamline your workflow and keep things snappy. On that page, you can now favorite and archive parties:

Are those visibility controls?? ZOOM! ENHANCE!

You can keep your most commonly accessed parties at the top of the list by favoriting them. If you have parties that you know you're never going to use again you can relegate them to the dustbin of the archive (but you can always get them back by unchecking Hide archived, of course 😉).

By leaving Only show favorites and Hide archived checked you can keep this page running like a well-oiled machine!

Happy partying! 🎉

Featured albums in parties

 

Improvement

  

Featured party albums are here! Here's what they look like in action:

Featuring an album gives it the star badge and gold background and pins it to the top of the party. To feature an album just click the new little star button when you're logged in as an admin for the party:

We hope this makes it a little easier to keep your party looking fresh and customers engaged. Please note that it can take a few minutes for featuring/unfeaturing to take effect. You'll see the "updating" message in the Seller Tools while album counts are re-processed in the background.

Happy ⭐ f e a t u r i n g ⭐!!!

Invoices Page

 

New

  

https://sonlet.com/invoices/

The new Invoices page shows all of your invoices made with Sonlet in a paged table for a nice summary compared to the Sales page.

Digital Downloads have been added to Sonlet!

 

Improvement

  

When adding new inventory items you now have the option to add digital files.

Items with digital files added to them receive a special "Digital download" badge that shoppers can see, they can also see the names of the files they get when buying the item.

After buying and paying for digital items, shoppers will have permanent links to the included files on the Claimed Items page in the Received column.

Sellers can also share download links with anonymous shoppers directly with copy paste links from the inventory and item details pages. Digital files can be added and removed from items by the seller, so long as the item was created as a digital item.

Scheduling support added to Facebook album creation (SmartPost "Just Albums")

 

Improvement

  

The "Just Albums" tab on the SmartPost page allows you to create albums in your Facebook groups with associated "cover photos". Up until today the "Just Albums" tab didn't have support for scheduling your request for a future time (unlike the other SmartPost tabs, which have had scheduling support for years).

Starting today you can now schedule your album creation for a future time using the familiar Post now / Post later interface:

Go ahead and hop on over to the SmartPost page and level up your Facebook automation game! And most of all, HAVE FUN!

Direct Messages

You can now chat directly with other users on Sonlet!

Check it out on the Direct Messages page.

You'll see links to Direct Message other users around the site:

  • Sales pages to message shoppers
  • Claims and Likes pages to message sellers (or potential sellers)
  • Item details page to message the seller
  • Various social pages
  • Possibly more in the future

Notifications for Direct Messages include in-site alerts and optional text and email alerts for subscribed users. Notifications are only sent when you have not been active in a chat for a while, so you don't get spam notified while currently chatting.

We hope this improves communication between sellers and shoppers!

Notification filtering

 

Improvement

 

 

Tired of sifting through pages of notifications to find that one party invite or chat reply buried under a mountain of claims? Now you can filter notifications by "type" from your notifications page.

We hope this makes your life just a little bit more enjoyable. Happy filtering!

Threaded Party Chat

 

Improvement

 

 

Party/shop chat has been updated to support threaded replies! Previously, in order to carry on a conversation in a chat, users had to @-reply each other back and forth. This worked okay in low-traffic chats, but was very annoying in larger parties/shops. Now you can contain your conversation in a thread, similar to Facebook and other platforms.

To get started just hit the reply button!
