UI for coupons and excluding products
Posted: Fri Sep 02, 2016 3:22 am
Still developing my GOLD site but wanted to test a coupon issue I had in the past. Haven't tested yet but I wanted to comment on the coupon creation UI and workflow. I think it's a step back from 707 in several ways. Yes, the product search is more advanced, although for my needs the former was always fine. I created a coupon and I want to exclude products from the sale. I checked the items in the search list (or the all checkbox at the top) and then I expected to SAVE or APPLY this to the coupon as excluded items. I could not figure out how to get out of this screen, there is no save, commit, apply, etc. I figured out I had to link them (weird name for this) which I did by clicking the green + on the right, I'm guessing the global action on the lower left would have done the same. I had to use the breadcrumb to get back to the coupon which was odd. I then needed to add more so I clicked the link to add more exclusions and it was in the "add" mode so my search didn't show results until I changed the drop down for the filter to blank. Long story longer, please review the coupon system UI and workflows. It could use some improvement and this is probably a frequently used area that less tech savvy may not figure out or get frustrated.
