Not that we’ve exhausted the theme of Kevin Bacon movies…I mean, is that even possible? But in the interest of change and all the happenings around here, we decided to go with a new theme for LightSpeed Cloud updates. It is now (drumroll please)…COLORS!
We present to you…Mauve.
- Shopify sync button wasn’t being checked while users were in fact syncing. This allowed anyone to mash the “Upload MerchantOS Data Into Shopify” button as fast as they felt like clicking it (that’s a bad thing).
- Pre-Sale PIN Entry will not loop you back to entering a PIN. Employees can now use PINS and ring up sales. Fancy.
- Purchase Orders wont give you that hideous Internal Server Error 500 message when you try to print them.
- Giant sell through data sharing will now run automatically.
- The Bike Coop will also get a similar treatment and receive vendor data from us. So much integration love.
LightSpeed Cloud for iPad updates:
- Login screen now behaves like a login screen should. No more skip-to-the-password-field-as-you-start-typing madness.
- Stuck screens are no more. There were a few instances where you would get stuck on a print screen (quotes and labels were the main culprits).
Mauve – this color is a lot more interesting than you think…
Mauve was first named in 1856. Chemist Sir William Henry Perkin, then eighteen, was attempting to create artificial quinine. An unexpected residue caught his eye, which turned out to be the first aniline dye – specifically, Perkin’s mauve or mauveine, sometimes called aniline purple. Perkin was so successful in recommending his discovery to the dyestuffs industry that his biography by Simon Garfield is titled Mauve. As mauveine faded easily, our contemporary understanding of mauve is as a lighter, less saturated color than it was originally known.
