Marketing/DMS Release April 26th, 2021

Updates / Features in this Release

All Dealers

Favorites Tile-set Update

As many of you had suggested, we now retain the original tile color when it is added to the Favorites tile set section. Click on the pencil icon to add your most used tiles to the favorite section if you have not done so already.

Fiche: Larger Thumbnails & OEM Name in the Page Tab

We have updated our parts fiche with larger thumbnails for better visibility of the parts. The thumbnail will now appear larger and clear. In addition, the manufacturer will appear in the page tab. We have done this so that if you have multiple Fiche tabs open you can easily identify which is which. 

Warning Message for IE 11 Users

Warning message will display when you log in DX1 using IE 11  browser.

Starting on May 12, 2021 you will no longer be able to use DX1 in IE 11. Please upgrade your browser to Chrome or Edge to ensure continuation of the service.

Website Key Business Metrics report 

We have added a new report to help monitor your website's performance against key website-marketing best practices. This report will provide scores for the dealership within certain categories against industry benchmarks. You can configure to receive this report monthly in your email or can view it under the Reports tile in the Marketing Communication tile-set.

Mega Menu Display Order

Changes were made to display the mega menu order to match the Showroom Sort order. This was mainly done to keep consistency on  your dealership website.

DX1 Slideshow Additional Sizes

You need not worry about the image size not matching  the slider size while uploading it in DX1 slideshow. We have added a new set of sizes to the DX1 Slideshow menu for portrait image orientation. There is also a CUSTOM option on the menu that allows you to manually input the size of the images. These extra options will definitely make your image uploading experience easy and efficient.

ProductCategory Filters for Web Slideshow

You can now choose to only show Manufacturer Promotions for the specific product category you carry in your dealership. We have added a setting in DX1 for you to filter the manufacturer promotion based on product category. When the manufacturer promotion is enabled, you will see a link next to it to select the product category for which you wish to display promotions on your website. Only the promotions for selected product categories will display on your website slideshow.
