Default X-Cart Admin mobile application

Hi All.

We are glad to introduce a new product: X-Cart Mobile admin.

We are developing this application in cooperation with our technology partner ITCloudLab (St Petersburg Russia). At the moment we have Android application only. iOS version will be released in Jan 2014. As for X-Cart versions compatibility, at the moment v4.6.x is supported, connectors for older branches ( up to v 4.3.X later) will be released later.


At the current stage of the development, we would like to get the first customers▓ feedback about performance and stability of the app on a large set of Android phones.

So if you are in the boat, download and install the app from http://mobileadmin.x-cart.com/apks/
OR
scan this QR codehttp://mobileadmin.x-cart.com/latest.png
(In some cases you should enable Installation of applicatons from nonMarket sources.) The application is preconfigured to connect with this demo store: http://mobileadmin.x-cart.com/xcart

If you want to test the app on your own store please PM me. I will share the connector installation files and necessary instructions.

Besides your feedback about performance, we would like to know your thoughts, what else X-Cart admin functionality would be most important to have in the app? We are planning to develop the application according to community requests and feedbacks.

This is great news. It looks really good. Of course I run it and played with it for a while

1. settings - it has few options for "pack size" which I assume it means how many XX to see in a list - the term "pack size" is confusing
2. maybe all screens need to have "go back" link - maybe at the top left corner; I know there is the device back button but still....
3. customer page - I like the "message/call" functionality there but maybe the app can detect it is being used on a tablet and not show the call button?
4. product page - I see only price can be edited for the moment; it would be nice if the image of product can be change and taken by the device cam

Are emails send out when order status is changed or order tracking number is modified?

I really like it and the clean look of it. In my opinion you should not try to include everything in the mobile admin but just enough to get the picture of what is going on with the store. Keep it nice, clean and with the major info showing.

So far great job!

Looks fantastic, congratulations.

Apologies I don't have access to an android device so I'm not sure if this feature is included or not.

Can we have the option for custom user types?

Ideally there would be at a minimum 2 users,

Users with full access
Users with read only access

read only would be great for those who wish to check sales on the go - but can avoid the common accidental edits on a touch screen device.

Ideally it would replicate user based restrictions which are on the store - but this may be for a future update.

One other suggestion for a feature would be for a 'quarantine' type option where any edits conducted on a mobile phone (specifically delete) whilst appear to occur in real time on the site, but are kept in a 'quarantine' section for 48 hours.

ie I delete a product on the site via the app and it no longer appears on the site, but is not removed permanently for 24/48 hours as a precaution in case of accidental edits, or in worst case a misplaced / lost device.

This would provide sufficient time to revert changes if necessary

Looks fantastic and will you consider to also develop a Windows Phone version?

now to go find a cheap android device to test this with.

One other suggestion.

Please have a sales screen with the following simple information,

Sales for the day $1,000.00
Sales for the week $2,000.00
Sales for the month $3,000.00

and depending on space

Top X orders (based on value)
Top X sold products

A 1 screen simple summary would be brilliant.

Could also be:
Sales for the day $1,000.00 Yesterday: $900.00
Sales for the week $2,000.00 Last Week: $1,900.00
Sales for the month $3,000.00 Last Month: $2,900.00

I have had several merchants ask for this comparison in existing X-cart dashboard.

We will think how to make this point clear.

The Back button will be implemented in the next app build.

The feature "Add product images from the device camera or gallery" is one of the planned features.

Yes. All notifications go to recipients the same as if the admin has changed the status from the web backend.

I've added your suggestion to TODO list.
