Busy bees keep the wheels turning here at 2Performant. And they’ve been hard at work this past month to deliver all sorts of goodies.
Promotion system tweaks
After having launched the advertiser promotion system in March, there were a few things that needed some tinkering. A few bugs here, a missing piece of information there, nothing our skilled developers couldn’t handle.
Users have also got some UX improvements after the first round of feedback we received.
Custom lead conditions
Just like we promised, affiliates can now receive custom conditions for leads as well. There’s a new piece of interface that allows advertisers to grant a different lead commission or cookie life to their best performing affiliates.
Mark all messages as read
There were many voices demanding a “mark all messages as read” button after we released the “number of unread messages” info bubble. Yeah, it’s there now, at the top of the inbox 😉
We’re dedicated to performance, so we’re constantly monitoring our platform in search of database queries that take too long, missing indexes, sub-optimal implementation of programming logic.
We’ve found a couple of issues this month, and fixing them means faster data fetching and response rendering for commissions and promotions.
Remember when the grand total for the conversion rate was a bit weird, if you had multiple days summing it up? Neither can we, because that’s a thing of the past now.
Guides for newbies
We noticed that it takes a long time for new advertisers to upload their first banner, so we decided to give them a bit of advice concerning this operation: why it’s recommended, what types of banners they need, some guidelines for the banners’ content etc.
Searching for the elusive dash
Due to the way our text indexing engine works, users couldn’t search for keywords that had dashes in them (“-“). We made that possible, so that you can find super–advertiser.com’s program a lot easier.
Other small fixes
- Safari users on Mac OS can now upload invoices (there was a bug preventing it)
- Banner destinations now accept URLs longer than 255 characters
- Some post-paid advertisers who had some money deposited in their account before their invoice was generated ended up in the situation where we couldn’t generate a 0-value invoice for them, because of rounding numbers to 2 decimals. As a result, an invoice that was supposed to have a value of 0 had a value of 0.01 EUR or -0.02 RON and that jammed the invoice generation process. We’ve taken care of that
- We also improved our own internal tracking and optimized performance for the admin interface, but you probably don’t care too much about what you can’t see or feel for yourself
