Submit any ideas or suggestions that isn’t one of our current features or that is not on this list.

Every idea for a feature begins as a Spark. The bright flash of concept that someone on our team has or an idea that is brought to us that we feel is worth exploring. Many of the features we offer and that are listed on this page come from our Pathfinder Stores who also test these new features when the time come

Once we’ve developed a feature we want to make sure that it meets the needs and expectations of our partner stores. At this point we will test it internally to the best of our ability until our team is satisfied that the feature is ready for wide scale implementation.

Each user can modify and configure their own individual dashboard specifically tailored to their needs.

Time Zones are now displayed in local time for each user individually, avoiding some of the hassle with work-from-home.

Once the feature is ready for launch, we will slowly roll it out to a few of our Pathfinder stores to test its performance in the real world. This is to make sure our team gets a chance to the feature work for a real store, under actual live conditions. If for whatever reason the feature doesn’t live up to our expectations, or our Pathfinder Stores have significant feedback, then we may need to bump the feature back to the Developing Phase to make sure we get it right. One of our primary goals is stability, and this gives us a chance to test that. Some features may also be held here to package together or for timed launches.
