September 2020 Release Notes: Filters by Options, Integration with Shopify Product Reviews, and More!

September has been one busy month for our development team - we've added a new advanced sales and optimization tool, detailed email reports, filter improvements on-demand, and integrations with several hot apps. Ready to dive in?

Usergroup Rules

Let's suppose you'd like to divide your store into wholesale and retail parts and show wholesale and retail customers different pricing. No extra apps are needed for this now!

If you have customers and products tagged wholesale, you can set up the necessary rule just in a few clicks. Just go to Searchanise admin panel -> Preferences -> Usergroup rules section to find the settings.

See other examples of using Usergroup rules in the article that we've prepared for you. Set up VIP pricing, hide specific products from a selected group of customers, perform any experiments you want and see how it affects your sales!

Email reports

We are sure you know it's crucial to track the effectiveness of any tool you use. You no longer need to bother about checking Searchanise analytics. We'll send you all the relevant information regularly with our new email reports.

Just go to Searchanise admin panel -> Analytics -> Settings and choose to receive reports once a week (by default), once a month or never. Handy, isn't it?

If there were less than 10 clicks on products and suggestions in Searchanise within a period, an analytics email won't be sent to you.

Filter improvements

Filters by product options are finally available! Add the appropriate options separated by commas to the Searchanise admin panel -> Filters -> Settings -> Filters by options field.

We have been frequently asked to add an option for collapsing filters. This month, we are crossing this off our to-do list!

Set it up in Searchanise admin panel -> Search results widget -> Filters -> Default Desktop View. Here is how the result looks:

Don't forget to click Apply changes in order to save the settings. As for me, I did. :)
