Aug 2019

Hey everybody! We’re excited to share some more developments in Sparq with everyone. We’ve made some major updates in the last month, and we’re not stopping anytime soon. Thanks again to everyone that has taken the time to review our app and reached out to us to give us feedback.

Have a look at what in store this month.

  • We’ve improved the navigation for our Filters menu in our app dashboard so that Filters enabled on your store come top of the filters list. Disabled filters will now automatically be pushed to the bottom of the list.
  • We have resolved a bug that prevented the new collection from showing up in the Sparq search’s collections category.
  • We resolved a bug that was indexing the search results page as part of the website pages.
  • The Sparq search page was facing a conflict when installed on stores that were using another search app earlier. This has now been resolved and now previous search pages will be overwritten by Sparq.
  • We’ve carried out further load time improvement by sending the first search call only after the first interaction with the search has been made.

  • Our team has been working hard to reduce first time page load times with Sparq by removing all non-required calls when the page loads for the first time.
  • To further improve the search user experience, we’ve also added a search loader to appear for the search drop-down.
  • You will now be able to remove specific values from the filter options. We’ve also written a guide showing you what to do which you can read here.
  • We’ve introduced currency conversion to Sparq. From now on Sparq will automatically switch the currency of the prices in both the search drop-down, search results and collection pages. As of now, Sparq fully supports Shopify’s Default Currency Convertor, DoublyCurrencyConvetor, and Currency Switcher by Secomapp.
  • We’ve made even more improvements to our data indexer so that we can complete syncing operation faster.

Remember that you can always ping us with your suggestions and ideas! Please feel free to reach us at hello@sparq.ai for any details.
