Content Cloud Updates

Enable editors to select target sources for URLs

Fixed in EPiServer.CMS.Core 12.5.0 [ID: CMS-19965]

CMS editors can now select a target source - such as in a new window, tab, pop up, and more - for both internal and external URLs. This allows for more control over how site visitors are directed to linked content.

Allow for local block management from TinyMCE editor

Fixed in EPiServer.CMS.UI 12.3.0 [ID: CMS-20746]

The TinyMCE editor now lets you directly create and edit local blocks. This makes for a more seamless editor experience for creating local blocks. The block toolbar menu detects local blocks and opens quick edit instead of navigating to the local block view.

Commerce Cloud Updates

Smart ‘live’ search for Order Management

Fixed in EPiServer.Commerce 14.3.0 [ID: COM-14953]

Search is no longer restricted by category. CSRs can now take advantage of autocompleting parallel search across all names and emails in Order Management.


Filter by ‘Market’ in Order Management

Fixed in EPiServer.Commerce 14.3.0 [ID: COM-14923]

CSRs can now filter by ‘Market’ to view carts, orders, and subscriptions sub-pages on the Order Management screen. This allows CSRs to filter and group orders by which market it was sold in. 


Replaced Infinite Scroll with Pagination controls in Order Management

Fixed in EPiServer.Commerce 14.3.0 [ID: COM-14924]

CSRs no longer have to infinitely scroll to view Carts, Orders, and Subscriptions in Order Management. The infinite scroll has been replaced with Pagination, allowing for a more succinct view per results.


‘Status’ filter added to Order Management

Fixed in EPiServer.Commerce 14.3.0 [ID: COM-14922]

CSRs can now filter Orders and Subscriptions based on ‘Status’ in Order Management.
