New Web-to-Print Productivity Feature: User Impersonation

Web to Print software solutions such as Aleyant Pressero enable a print service provider to publish, operate and manage a potentially unlimited number of printshop e-commerce websites that sell printing and related services. When a customer of one of these sites or portals needs help, sometimes it’s helpful for you to be able to see and experience what your customer sees by logging in as them.

Often this can be time consuming for both you and your customer. We are happy to announce that our developers have released an update to Pressero for impersonating a user with a single click!

Impersonating a User in a Web-to-Print Storefront

Within this new web-to-print feature you are able to log into a W2P site as a different user without needing or knowing their credentials. Among many other benefits, this will enable you to easily view how a site looks to an individual user or to troubleshoot any issues your users may encounter when trying to place an order. Thanks to all our clients who gave us feedback about this convenient new feature!

How to Turn On the “Impersonate a User” W2P Feature

Go to Admin > Preferences > General Setting

Available within B2B and B2C sites but will most commonly be used for B2B sites

Pressero W2P settings

Notice the new “Allow User Impersonation” check-box

Check the box and create a site master password for universal login.

Click Save when you are finished

To access this feature go to Sites > Site > Site Users. You will see a green arrow has now been added next to each users name. (Admin needs to have “Can Manage All Users” permission to do this).

Pressero Web to Print User Admin

After making an order as an impersonator, the site user will receive the email verification as if they ordered it themselves.

Web-to-Print is All About Convenience—for Both You and your Customer

With the new User Impersonation capability, Aleyant’s Pressero raises the bar yet again. If you would like some assistance or have questions, submit a support request, and we will be happy to help you!

eDocBuilder 3.1.3 Released!

Last week, our developers rolled out a new version of Aleyant eDocBuilder™, our online design and variable data publishing system. These are the two new features included in the release that we think you’ll be most excited about:

Response Sets Available to Multiple Templates

Many clients have asked for the opportunity to create response sets for their web-to-print templates just one time and then be able to apply those response sets to additional templates. Based on this feedback, we’ve added this option. This is especially helpful when creating several templates for a B2B customer with multiple locations, for example, if the customer wants to make the addresses from five different locations available on their letterhead, business card, and envelope templates. In the past, the response sets for the addresses needed to be managed in all three templates separately. Now, you can create the response sets one time and apply them to the other two templates. If the address of a location changes, you only need to make that change in the Response Sets area of the first template.

To apply the response sets from one template to another, first set up the response sets in one template. Make sure you commit changes when you are done. In your subsequent templates’ master PDFs, give any fields that should use response sets the same name as they have in the original template’s master PDF. In the Response Sets page of the subsequent templates, select the first template’s name from the Other Template dropdown menu in the Use Response Sets From Other Template area. Then click “Use.” Don’t forget to commit changes when you are finished.

Select your original template from the Use Response Sets From Other Template area to apply those response sets to your template.

 Convert to VB Button in HTML Field Scripting Area

eDocBuilder has long offered both the simpler HTML field scripting option as well as the more powerful, but more complex, VB scripting. Although VB script offers many more powerful options, many clients have reported difficulty in changing their HTML field scripting to VB script. We’re pleased to announce that converting your HTML field script to VB script is now as easy as clicking a button! In the HTML Markup area of a field’s Field Scripting tab, you’ll see a button that says “Convert to VB.” Simply click this button to automatically convert your HTML script to VB.

Easy HTML to VB script conversion for web-to-print templates with eDocBuilder

Easily convert your HTML field scripting to VB with the “Convert to VB” button in the Field Scripting tab.

There is not a button to convert your VB script back to HTML. This is because VB script can use many powerful options that cannot be translated into HTML. However, if you re-select HTML markup as the script type, you will be taken back to your original HTML script.

Our developers are always hard at work bringing great new features to both eDocBuilder and the Aleyant Pressero™ web-to-print solution. Make sure to stay tuned to our blog to hear about all the latest features as they are released!
