It would be useful to extend the range of order information attributes available within the rules engine.
For example, our Magento store creates a "customer_group_id" eg 2 (which identifies our trade customers within Magneto) as part of the order XML. We would then like to set up the rules engine so that if this is = 2 then we can set up a rule to move these orders to a "trade folder" and/or mark with a tag. This will help us to identify and manage these orders within linnworks.
I can understand that it is not necessary to pull all of the order XML info over for every order, however, it would be useful for a user to be able to tick "additional" order XML attributes that would then be available to be used by the Rules Engine!
This would be very useful... I'm always coming up against brick walls trying to integrate simple things and this would help a lot.
I need to export orders to be uploaded to Cdiscount Fulfilment (annoyingly not integrated like FBA), it requires me to provide a title like Mr/Mrs and name in Firstname Surname format. All the info I need is in the XML and if I could create order extended properties from it then life would be easy - but it seems there is no way around it!
The only solution is a manual one where I the extended properties to each order individually which is obviously not going to work in the long term.
Ive just asked about this in a ticket and got the " we can do this with scripting - here's our price list...."
The rules engine is a powerful tool - which seems to have been deliberatly held back, all i wanted to achieve was marking a certain customers orders as paid (they have credit terms) - i can set up a condition to get the customer via email easily, but he Actions are severly lacking.
Linnworks - put some more work into rules Actions and make it he fantastic tool it can be!
