    Introducing stores

    Stores

    The store entity represents the physical and digital sales channels of an organization. For example, you can use stores to build complex promotional campaigns for all the sales channels in a specific location.

    You can create, update, and delete stores in your Application via the Management API.

    After you create stores in your Application, you can select the type of stores-based evaluation you want for your campaigns. You also have the option to link stores to your campaigns.

    You now also have store built-in attributes and custom attributes that you can use in the Rule Builder.

    Bulk-disable and bulk-delete campaigns

    Campaign Manager

    You can now bulk-disable expired campaigns and bulk-delete disabled campaigns.

    When you filter for expired campaigns, you can select and disable up to 50 of them at once. Similarly, when you filter for disabled campaigns, you can select and delete up to 50 of them at once.

    November 1st
    Notifications

    Create notifications to receive real-time updates whenever loyalty tiers are upgraded or downgraded.

    You can also create notifications to receive scheduled updates for upcoming tier downgrades. For each notification, you can add up to 3 triggers, each with a different alert time, before the tier downgrades. You can use this, for example, to notify your customers before their tier is downgraded, which, in turn, helps boost engagement.

    Two-factor authentication during sign-in

    Security

    You can now enable two-factor authentication (2FA) for the users in your organization. When 2FA is enabled, users are required to enter a one-time security code sent to their email address, in addition to their password, when signing into Talon.One.

    This adds an extra layer of protection to their account and increases your organization's overall security.

    Discount individual item in bundles pro rata effect

    Rule Builder

    With the newly added Discount individual item in bundles pro rata effect, you can build promotions that apply a single discount to items in a bundle. The discount value is determined by the individual item you select and is applied pro rata to all the items in the bundle.

    Advanced loyalty tiers

    Loyalty programs

    Newly created profile-based loyalty programs now support advanced loyalty tiers. Advanced tiers allow you to ensure customers stay in a tier for a chosen period of time, instead of relying on their number of expired points. See Loyalty tiers.

    You can also import customers into the tiers via the Campaign Manager or via the API. Use this feature to migrate your current loyalty tiers into the newly created loyalty programs.

    Points and tiers expiration as years

    Loyalty programs

    You can now also set your rewards' expiration date relative to years. It used to be limited to days, weeks and months.

    End of support for TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1

    Infrastructure

    Starting November 1, 2022, Talon.One is dropping support of Transport Layer Security (TLS) versions 1.0 and 1.1 for better platform security and performance. Requests using these versions will not be recognized by Talon.One's APIs.

    Where possible, Talon.One recommends that organizations remove all TLS 1.0/1.1 dependencies in their environments and disable TLS 1.0/1.1 at the operating system level.

    You can check our systems' status on our dedicated page.

    Confirm with your engineering team that you are using up-to-date libraries and packages. If you are still using TLS versions 1.0 or 1.1, or have any questions on this topic, you can reach out to your Technical Account Manager.
