    Hi,

    I've just been trying out the ecommerce features, I've added a few departments and a few products. I created a page and put the product list widget on there, edited the widget and found I only have "By Dates" as an option in display Selection of Products. I assumed something must be wrong because it would be hilarious if an ecommerce product didn't allow you to display products from one category only, so I checked the documentation and it says there should that option (as well as display by tag, which I haven't got either).

    So, any thoughts on why department and tags isn't an option for me?

    thanks

    Edit: btw, SF 4.2.1733

    We've already replied in your support thread.That is a problem with the current release of Sitefinity 4.2 SP1. We have resolved the issue for the upcoming release of Sitefinity 4.3 due the end of next week.

    Whilst I appreciate the update I've got to ask... how does a problem like that get through to release?

    Hi Nick,

    Actually, Ecommerce was officially released in Sitefinity 4.2 and for its first release we have implemented the main functionality and were focused on making sure that they work fine. In the upcoming 4.3 version we'll improve Ecommerce, by adding new features and fixes to the issues, reported by our customers. We have pointed most of them out on our Sitefinity Roadmap. Please excuse us for the inconvenience caused.

    Kind regards,
    Jen Peleva

    I downloaded the 4.3 trial on November 6th and I'm also seeing this issue.  I added several departments and added products to each department.  However, when I I'm in page edit mode there is no Department widget in the ECommerce widget list which contains the folloing:

    Product List
    Buy Now
    Shopping cart summary
    Checkout
    Orders list
    Order invoice
    Google conversion

    Hey Steve,

    Departments are a part of 'taxonomy', similar to tags and categories, and as such the widget is displayed under the 'Classification' section of the widget toolbox.

    As you can see on the attached screenshot, its on the right under the 'Tags' widget.
    You can add the widget to the ecommerce section if you'd like by go to Administration >> Settings >> Advanced >> Toolboxes >> Toolboxes >> PageControls >> Sections And then copy/paste from Classifications the Departments and paste them under Ecommerce.

    On a side note:
    The 'product list' widget in v4.3 supports filtering on departments, dates and tags and you can sort them under the 'List settings' tab.

    The Default sorting methods: Featured, Best Selling and Rating currently don't work. It's already a known issue, but I can't tell you the PITS link out of the top of my head...

    Jochem.

    Hi guys,

    The work on the issue with the default sorting methods in Product widget is in progress.  Featured, Best Selling and Rating sorting criterias will be available in December with the 4.4 version of Sitefinity.

    All the best,
