Posted by Josh O'Connell May 1, 2018

Topics: Zoey Product News

April ultimately proved to be one of our most aggressive months of updates in some time. While we've announced major releases in April like Advanced Quick Order and Google Analytics Enhanced eCommerce, there were quite a few other updates that were made available throughout the month.

New features will only be available for those on version 2 of Zoey (you can check your version number in the top left corner of the admin when logged in). To be sure you have access to all the latest, request your upgrade today.

Remember, you can always stay up to date with the latest updates, and share your feedback about what we should add next. Here's a summary of some of our recent updates, available now:

  • Click to enlarge product image: To activate, in the Visual Design Editor, go to the Product Template and in the Product Media Block, (Product Image Gallery) enable the setting. Customers will then see the following:

  • Compare Products Overhaul: The compare feature has been re-styled. In addition, within Product->Settings you can adjust the default items that show up. Within Product->Attributes you can now check off "Used in Compare". Drag in the Compare block to include in your templates.
