Release Notes | April 08, 2021

We have various performance updates and feature updates on this sprint as well as minor bug fixes. We also finished our work on a new VIP Program being deployed by Nissan. Read below to learn more about it. 

Performance Updates

  • We've investigated the issue of dealers accidentally double refunding on the Control Panel and found a way to prevent it from happening. 
  • We've moved our checkout pages off of our MART servers to another one to optimize performance. 
  • We've also migrated from one server to another.
  • We've changed the color code on the Recent Orders page for PDC-eligible orders that are not in a State that is eligible. 
  • We created an expandable link on our Assembly notes platform-wide so that screen readers are able to navigate the page more effectively. We've added an aria-hidden class to the notes so they only show when they're expanded. 
  • We updated the aira-label for the Terms and Conditions on Lexus dealer sites to show screen readers that the link will open into a new tab.
  • We removed an aria-expanded label for category lists on Toyota T1 and T3 default pages for a better screen reading experience. 
  • We've made improvements on the Dealer Finder alt text.
  • We edited arrow colors on Similar & Related parts of the Part Type page to match brand primary colors.
  • We've edited the Audi B2B Model range buttons to be the right dimensions. 
  • We've added an ability to track how many users view the NISMO online catalog. 

Project Work

  • For the past few months, we've been working on a new feature that is now live on Nissan sites. We're happy to introduce you to Nissan's VIP Program. 
    • The VIP Program allows loyal customers to create an account and enjoy special perks, offers and deals including Free Shipping. 
    • VIP customers can also enjoy an easier shopping experience with all of their past orders and vehicle information saved.

Bugs & Fixes

  • We found a bug on a dealer site where the add-to-cart buttons were not working correctly on product tiles. These have been fixed. 
  • We fixed a bug on the Volvo US B2B's email list functionality to work appropriately. 
  • We found a bug on Triumph sites where model years were showing out of order. This has been resolved. 
  • Volvo Accessory only templates were resetting the last field of the My Garage feature which has been resolved to work correctly.
