Automated recommendation blocks

Automated recommendations

Hi there,

We could not wait till next month to introduce our new feature. We worked really hard and we are excited to let you know about the results!

When it came to adding recommendation blocks to your storefront, applying changes manually to your theme files was inevitable. We totally understand it may come as a real headache if you are not a tech guy. So we just made it way easier.

Now you can add recommendation blocks to a selected page of your store just in a couple of clicks.

Go to Searchanise admin panel -> Recommendations, add a new block or edit the existing one and choose the Auto option:

Auto recommendations settings

You’ll just need to select a page and save the changes. The created widget will be added to the bottom part of the selected page.

You can still add recommendation blocks to your theme files manually in case you’d like to choose a specific place for them. Here is the detailed instruction on how you can do it.

Check it out yourself and let us know how it works for you!

New September features and improvements

Hi there,

We had a lot of things to do in September. We’ve added a new complex sales and optimization tool, detailed email reports, filter improvements on demand, and integrations with several hot apps. Let’s talk about them all.  

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? 

Searchanise email reports

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.

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