What's New in Version 1.35 (Voltaire)

about a month ago by Frédéric Trudeau

François-Marie Arouet, better known by his pen name Voltaire, has more significance in 2020 than in any other year in recent memory. A French writer and a renowned public activist, Voltaire played a significant role in defining the 18th-century movement called the "Enlightenment".

With the world under quarantine and social tensions on the rise, we think it's time for another enlightenment. One that we can bring to the world. It's time for enlightenment, it's time for Pelcro v1.35.

This new release introduces machine-learning powered product and plan recommendations, single-user authentication, enhancements to our existing AMP integration as well as other changes and additions.

MACHINE LEARNING PERSONALIZATIONS

We are proud to announce that Pelcro now uses neural network multi-class categorical probabilistic regression machine learning as well as ensemble and tree algorithms (taking deep breath in), which gives you the power to recommend relevant plans and products to your users, accurately predict subscriptions for non-paying users, predict churn of your paying users and recommend content.

Please note that the signature for insight module methods was changed to accept user_id. For backward compatibility, you can still use encrypted_user_id.

SINGLE USER AUTHENTICATION

This new feature restricts your users to be authenticated on your site using only one device at a time, all new successful login attempts invalidating the generated token on all other devices or browsers for that same user. In order to enable this behavior, see the new checkbox labeled "Enable single user authentication" in the site settings.

👍

ENHANCED AMP INTEGRATION

Our AMP integration benefited from a lot of enhancements and bug fixes, namely: the ability to apply basic styling and customization to your login and logout forms (per site), fixing bugs related to closing the form window after submitting, showing proper error messages and fixing CORS headers errors.

CHANGES IN EXPORTS

By popular demand, all amounts in the exports are now divided by 100 automatically. In other words, amounts are not displayed in cents anymore, but in dollars. Furthermore, each individual key in the Customer metadata export is represented as a separate column in the resulting CSV. You're welcome.

OTHER GOODIES

  • You now have the ability to delete an unused (not associated to any active subscription) payment method from the platform.
  • We added the new "Subscription likelihood score threshold" attribute in the product configuration.
  • When updating a subscription, you now have the ability to change its source.

“The most important decision you make is to be in a good mood.”
