πŸ”‘ Drop notes structure
Categories & sections

The drop notes follow a categorized structure. It starts with Core to highlight any core release notes from the last four core releases. Next, it covers Docs to highlight any newly added documentation pages or features on the documentation portal. If impacted in the release, you'll find general changes affecting multiple Apps, followed by specific changes for each App individually (e.g., Checkout, Loyalty, Tasks, CFD, etc.). Finally, it provides an alphabetical categorization in line with the modules available in Admin Suite (e.g., Control room, Financials, Orders, etc.), and within, any changes that took place.

Each category contains 3 sections: Added, listing any new features or functionalities; Improved, listing any changes made to an existing feature or functionality; and Fixed, listing any bug fixes addressed.

Order by impactfulness

Within each category, entries are listed in a way we think are most impactful to least.

No change = No notes

In some instances, a drop may include no changes for certain Apps, categories, or sections. In such cases, the corresponding part will not be shown in the notes.

New section: Core

From this Drop onwards, we will be sharing here as well some of the highlights from this release's Core drops (i.e. the last four Core drops).

πŸ†• Added​

New Data lake exports: Assortments & Repairs​

Since Core drop 2.0.735 you can optionally export Assortments from EVA, while Core drop 2.0.738 added Repairs as a default export from the EVA Data lake.

New extension point: GenerateUserCouponOnOrderReturn​

With Core drop 2.0.735 we introduced the GenerateUserCouponOnOrderReturn extension point, which allows you to generate new coupons for customer who are returning orders that included coupons.

Anti-Money Laundering Measures​

The UK compliance framework now adheres to anti-money laundering regulations.

βœ… Improved​

Preventing use of discounts for oneself​

We've done the back-end work for preventing users from adding discounts to orders which they themselves are attached to.

All Apps‍

πŸ”§ Fixed​

Expand to see fix(es)
  • Resolved several visual and functional issues in Suite Apps when using the Login with PIN feature.

POS 2.112.x‍

πŸ†• Added​

Scanning customers in Local mode​

Customers can now be scanned and added to orders while in Local mode, with the conditions as specified in Core drop 2.0.731.

The POS now takes into account your configured External user search.

To that end, the Search customers overview screen will now display two sections: one for users residing in EVA and one for those in the external database. Additionally, when creating a new customer, a search will be done in the external database based on nickname and email address; if either already exists, a modal will popup to allow the customer to be imported and created in EVA.

βœ… Improved​

Configurable properties in Local mode​

While you could already select products with configurable properties and add them to your basket while in Local mode, it's now possible as well to select and alter such products after they've been added to the basket.

Adding a New Customer to an Order​

Once you add a new customer via the Create customer page, you're automatically returned to the main customer page. POS will now display this newly created customer in the overview under Newly created customer.

Selecting the newly created customer will enable an Add to Order button and more. This eliminates the need to search for the customer you just created.

Deletion of last line on paid orders​

To make the flow for deletion of order lines on paid orders consistent between the Apps, you can now delete the very last line on a paid order in POS as well. Doing so will display a message informing you about the already paid amount and the need to either refund or the addition of new products.

No cash drawer: Checkout without cash​

If an organization unit does not have a configured cash drawer, the Cash payment method option will not appear during the basket checkout flow.

Mail addresses for DGCs​

The addition and/or changing of email addresses for orders with digital gift cards has been improved. In short: EVA will now only show the email field on the Customer Facing Display when a giftcard is sold and only an email address is attached.

Additionally: we would like to advise you to set Customer:BlockChangeEmailAddress to true in order to lessen opportunity for fraud.


The way this functionality works is affected by how your settings are configured:

When App:CFD:IsPassive = true

  • Employees cannot ask customers to enter the e-mail address on CFD - Onboarding button is not enabled in POS
  • Customers cannot interact or change any details on CFD

When App:**CFD**:IsPassive = false

  • Employees can ask the customer to enter their e-mail address on CFD - Onboarding button is enabled in POS
  • Customers can interact with CFD and enter their details
  • EVA only displays the email field
  • Details on the CFD are also limited to the email address field

When Customer:BlockChangeEmailAddress = true

  • After the email address is entered for a customer, it cannot be changed anymore on either CFD or in POS

When Customer:BlockChangeEmailAddress = false

  • Email address can be changed on CFD and in POS

Enhanced return reasons modal​

Customer Return Reasons now appear in an expanded modal featuring scrolling and search capabilities.

Support for ZPL files​

The App now supports the (re)print service for ZPL files (shipping/consignor labels) and can send the request to the printer when one is configured. More on ZPL printers and configuration can be found here.

Pick a product discount list​

The user interface for the Select a Product discount action has been enhanced. It now supports displaying up to 100 products directly. For scenarios involving more than 100 products, a scanning option is now also possible to capture ones not on the UI list but are still part of the discount action.

Consistent email invoicing​

When emailing an invoice from POS, the new service as announced in Core drop 2.0.734 will now be used. This makes it functionally consistent with printing the other documents in checkout.

πŸ”§ Fixed​

Expand to see fix(es)
  • Resolved an issue that allowed users without rights to be elevated to open "cash drawer" or do a "refund order". This assumes a scenario where those two flows require elevation and where the setting Security:ElevatedFunctionalityProvider was set. More on elevation can be found here.

Tasks App 1.86.x‍

βœ… Improved​

Completing a C&C task cancels remaining products​

We've aligned the methods behind completing a Click & Collect task between Admin Suite and Tasks App: completing a C&C task with unpicked products will now cancel these remaining products and finish the entire task.

Additionally we've made some slight UI changes to make the flow more logical, such as only showing an Undo button for Picked and Cancelled items.

Checkout App 1.86.x‍

πŸ†• Added​

Support for ZPL files​

The App now supports the (re)print service for ZPL files and can send the request to the printer when one is configured. More on ZPL printers and configuration can be found here.

Admin Suite 0.44.x‍

πŸ†• Added​

Admin 1.0 Redirect​

As we phase out Admin 1.0, we've added a handy redirect for those who might still need access to the old platform. Find the "Need the old admin? Click here" link on the Admin Suite overview page for essential, justified access as we smoothly transition to the new era of Admin Suite. This step is part of concluding the switch off phase.

That field will now adhere to the settings specified in the settings card.

The Backend ID field is no longer required when creating a Case. For existing cases that already have a Backend ID, this field will be read-only or will show a dash if it is missing.
