#Filter and export your product quality score

Type: New  |  Features: Quality Collaboration  |  Available in Serenity EE and GE since mid-February  |  πŸ“– Read the doc

You can now export your product quality scores together with other product information directly from the product Export Builder. Easily filter on the quality scores you need, A, B, C, D, and/or E, before you can download the information in an Excel or CSV file.

This new feature can be very handy when:

  • you want to only export high-quality products to distribute them to third-parties,
  • you want to find products with a low score to allow contributors to focus on enhancing this product information to increase their catalog's quality score.

You can also choose on which locales you want this quality score filter to apply: to all of them or only one.

Product export filters on quality score

If you want to export your quality score on existing product exports, you need to edit them to add this filter, by default, the quality score is not included in product export profiles.

#Rules execution 4 times a day

Type: New  |  Feature: Automation  |  Available in Serenity EE only since mid-February

We now automatically execute rules 4 times a day: at 5 am UTC, at 11 am UTC, at 5 pm UTC, and at 11 pm UTC. This enhancement will help you speed up your enrichment process. Indeed, your catalog is even more synchronized with the latest computed values generated automatically by the Rules Engine.

Note that, of course, rules are still regularly executed after a bulk action or after imports with rules, and also, if you are allowed to, you can still execute one or several rules manually from the rule grid.
