This week's release:
Global | SmartSpending | Spend & Savings Charts on My Account section
Over Black Friday and Daily Deals Week we want to make sure all our users have an optimal experience on the site. That means making sure they can access their purchases and accounts quickly.
This year we have particularly focused on improving how the Spend and Saving amounts are calculated. This new method keeps track of these amounts after each purchase, instead of recalculating them each time someone loads a page. This will allow us to keep displaying user balances during busy periods.
One other area we found unexpectedly last year was the My Account area which navigates to the Summary page by default. This year during Black Friday and Daily Deals Week, users will be redirected to their General Settings page and My Recent Savings and Where Have You Saved Money charts will be temporarily hidden from 25th November.
Global | Core Platform | Email improvements to help deal with fraud quicker
Every day we send our members emails about actions they take on our platform such as successful purchase or password change confirmation. However when a user receives an email that looks suspicious we don't provide a quick and easy way for them to notify us.
In order to solve this challenge we worked with the security team and decided to add a link to the footer of every email template we send. If the member clicks on this link our system will take them to a place where they can lock their account and notify the security team with a guidance on next steps to keep them reassured.
By introducing this change our users will be empowered to help us detect fraudulent activity faster so we can help them faster!
Global | Core Platform | Secure File Upload improvements
A small but important update, in order to protect our clients from potential data leaks and be GDPR compliant RG we don't want to be storing old files on our servers for long periods of time.
To solve this issue we will now automatically delete files uploaded via Secure File upload that are more than 180 days old.
This security measure will help prevent the potential leaking of data we share with our clients and the data they share with us.
