🌟 Long-Term Supply & Demand Plan Improvements

📊 New Forecasting Strategy: Last Year's Sales Performance with Your Growth Rate

Introducing a new forecasting strategy within the Fabrikatör plan feature! Now, alongside the  Fabrikatör AI algorithm, you can use  Last Year's Sales Performance combined with your defined growth rate.

You can create scenarios like “Let’s grow sales by 50% compared to last year” and adjust your plans according. Here's how it works:

  • Select Last Year's Sales Performance: Choose this strategy to base your demand plan on the previous year's sales data.
  • Set Your Growth Rate: Set how much you’ll grow in the upcoming period (e.g., 150%) to project future demand. We will calculate your demand plan by multiplying last year's sales performance by your specified growth rate.

Other Improvements

  • Enhanced User Experience: We've added a loading state to the Demand Plan. Now, when updating a product, variant, or month, a loading icon appears to keep you informed about the progress of your edits.
  • Improved Klaviyo Integration: Our Klaviyo integration now offers more control over email notifications for customers who purchased preorder products from incoming purchase orders. Previously, updates to Klaviyo email content triggered notifications to all users, regardless of order status. With our latest update, you can choose to notify only users whose orders remain unfulfilled by toggling the "Notify Only Unfulfilled Backorders" option within the update interface.

🐞 Bug Fixes

  • We've resolved an issue where an extra zero was incorrectly added when rendering monthly totals in the demand plan. Previously, quantities such as 2703 were displayed as 27030, and quantities like 5305 appeared as 53050. This bug has been fixed to accurately reflect the intended total quantities for each month in your planning process.
