The Items in Shopping Carts Customer Portal management screen lists all items sitting in shopping carts that customers haven't yet checked out with. You may be wondering, "Why are items sitting in my customers' shopping carts?" Common reasons for this are:
You can search and sort the list of Items in Shopping Carts to help you find items by most customer record fields, or filter the list, for example, for those items that are particularly old, or no longer apply (such as an order for a class that has expired). You can also manually remove those items from the customer's shopping cart once you've determined it is no longer wanted.
As point #2 above suggests, sometimes the customer abandons the cart just temporarily, which can happen if the customer was confused and did not understand how to check out. While this is rare, due to how easy the Customer Portal is to use, it can be a good heads-up notification, so you can reach out to the customer to see what they want to do or if they need any help.
NOTE: When a customer leaves a class in their shopping cart for over 24 hours, ClassJuggler automatically sends them a friendly reminder email that they have an incomplete order and tells them what items are in their shopping cart. This generally handles all potential forgotten orders, but there still can be abandoned orders from some customers.
ClassJuggler version 7.5.3 is in its final testing stages and will be ready for prime time very soon. We are on-track to launch the new version in the first couple weeks of June. This new version brings some much-needed improvements to the user interface, included larger, easier to read/use menus, a new staff chat messaging service for the Staff Portal, and a number of other improvements and changes. Keep an eye on your Home Base news for the announcement in early June.

Even though the summer is just starting, many of our customers are beginning to get ready for their Fall Session. The Mass Class Copy tool makes preparing for a new session much easier by letting you select one or more classes of any status to copy to new inactive class records. This is particularly useful if you regularly repeat classes each session, season, or year. Rather than start from scratch with each new season, you can copy an entire session of classes in a few easy steps:
Then the magic begins; you can watch a progress bar that counts through all your classes as they are copied. Once the copy is complete, you will see a "Success!" message and a new button, Run Again, which allows you to start a new copy process again if you wish to copy more classes.
You can then proceed to the Class List to make any final edits on your new inactive copied classes. IMPORTANT: a newly copied classes will start out in the "inactive" status, to allow you to tweak them further before you "Offer" them to make them active. Starting classes as inactive prevents them from being displayed in the Customer Portal before you are ready for them.
