Hi Support,

Just back from holidays and a couple of questions before signing up.

1) Is the testing done on a test version of the system or does it replace our existing live set up?

2) Assuming it's on the live data; what's the escape route back to our existing live set up if a major problem is found? Would this escape route keep track of orders received and changes made during the testing period?

Does that count as 3 questions ?

H,
You can still access the old control panel when testing the new one.
The data is your live data.

However, unless there is a major problem we would not advise using the old control panel once you start using the new control panel. For example if you create a postcode based shipping method in the new control panel, i'm not totally sure what would happen if you tried to access/edit it in the old control panel which does not have this functionality.

Many thanks
Support

I have another question now too... is the data transferred over from the old panel to the new one as I don't fancy entering 500+ items, shipping etc again.

Hi,
You will be accessing live data through the new control panel.
Many Thanks

So what if one is beta testing the new control pattern but others are only processing orders on the old one as users rather than administrators with the old control panel?

Hi,
The new control panel accesses exactly the same data as the old control panel.
If you decide to test the new control panel then you should have everyone that uses your control panel use the new control panel instead, and not go back to the old control panel unless you have a specific reason for doing so.
Once we have completed testing on the new control panel then all merchants will be switched to the new control panel.
Many Thanks

Would it be possible to have a 'sandbox' version we can all play with.... (maybe for the demo store)

Brilliant for me. It has cut down listing new products by half with the copy function in the product manager.

Also, I have had only one hiccup in the new layout (kiss of death now), but had a few questions as some things work very slightly differently or are in a different place.

Overall I think its excellent (although you will never please everyone) and would say take the plunge.
