16.04 Release Notes

What’s new in 16.04

The RichRelevance 16.04 release on March 17, 2016, includes the following client-facing product updates:

  • Dashboard (release notes access, manual recommendation rules, bug fixes, and improvements)
  • Recommend (bug fixes and improvements)
  • Discover (filtering by sale price)


Release notes access

  • Our release notes are now available directly from the Dashboard. In the upper-right corner of any Dashboard page, click Documentation, and then click Release Notes. The latest release notes appear inside the contextual help box.
  • If you want to view prior release notes, follow the same instructions, then click Open Article, and then click the release notes link listed under Related Articles on the right side of the page. 

Manual recommendation rules

  • Merchants can now create manual recommendation rules on category pages. These rules only apply to the specified category, and not the child categories. This enables merchants to create strategic manual recommendations at top-level categories.

        Note   Existing rules are not affected.

Bug fixes and improvements

  • On listing pages, the check boxes for Enable in QA/Integration and Enable in Production are now more visible.
  • The User Profile page now shows the most recently uploaded user attributes and values in the User Profile Service.
  • Regional sale prices are now displayed in the catalog browser.
  • Rules that have apostrophes in the names are now correctly added to audit logs.


Bug fixes and improvements

  • Merchandising rules that target user attributes can now recognize attributes from the User Profile Service (UPS) using the Shopper Profile context target. Prior to this release, only instrumented attributes were considered.
  • Boosted products are now correctly handled. Before, these products were incorrectly raised above manually merchandised products.
  • Recommendations affected by SKU rendering logic are now logged for tracking.


Filtering by sale price

  • Category and search sorting can now correctly filter products using the sale price (instead of the list price) of a product provided in the catalog feed.

Browse boosting

  • Browse boosting now allows merchants to boost products to the top of the first page of any category controlled by the Discover product. This gives merchants control over what shoppers see on browse pages. Merchants have control over what to boost: products, brands, sub-categories, how much to boost, and when to boost.

        Note   This is part of a patch release on March 24, 2016.
