As part of our commitment to your success, we're happy to announce several improvements to MC Trade to help you manage your organization more efficiently and effectively. We will roll out these changes to all customers on March 3, 2023.
Improvements to Member Portal profile editing
Now that the new BETA Directory is rolling, we want to make sure it's easy for your members to log in and manage their own logo, files and videos. To this end, we've made a few changes to the "Upload Media" section on the Member Portal:
We've renamed the section, and split the upload option up into three options: Add file (for general uploads), Add logo (the Listing_Logo content type will be used), and Add photo (the Listing_Photo content types will be used). Rather then expecting the member to know what content type to choose, we've split these out into the different link paths. Otherwise, the upload process remains the same!
In addition, for all profiles that can edit listings (you may have this set to be only Member profiles), you'll now see the "Embedded Video" section on the edit screen. As with the old portal, as soon as a member saves a code snippet of video here, it will save directly to their profile. Note that it will not display in their directory listing (legacy or BETA), unless their listing is configured to do so.
Learn more about how these items will display in the BETA Directory here!
BETA Directory Affiliation Code Filters
You can now add Affiliation Code Type filters to the new directory, in the Admin > Global Settings, Web Preferences/ BETA Directory Setting screen:
Like the current/legacy directory, the ID numbers of the Affiliation Types you fill in here (you may comma-separate the list) will be used to further filter results in your Online Directory. You will see these filters display on the Results page of any category or keyword search in your directory, on the left side, and your directory users can select filters to further refine their results:
This release also includes the following enhancements and fixes:
- Fixed an error in the Member Portal Edit screen with broken menu items and errors loading Custom Fields after a recent framework upgrade
- Fixed an issue in which Products & Services in a Listing were not showing or updating properly in the Member Portal Edit screen
- Fixed an issue displaying the header in the eCommerce store pages
- Fixed a CopyMe issue in which incorrect recipient data was getting recorded to the Contacted field of a Contact record
