This Week in devot:ee #34 - September 6, 2012
September 6, 2012
by Ryan Masuga
New sales email option for developers, and our Editor’s Pick for September 2012: Zenbu.
New Optional Sales Email Address
There is a new optional override email address that can be entered by developers on the profile edit page below the notification opt-in selectors. This email address will be used for sales and returns notifications as well as notifications for when an add-on goes live. Use this field if you want to use an email address other than the one tied to your account.
September 2012 Editor's Pick
We apologize for picking a bit late this month, but the Editor's Pick for September 2012 is Zenbu from Nicolas Bottari. If you have a lot of entries, or need to look at custom columns per channel (among numerous other things) then this add-on is for you. We have used it here on devot:ee since its earliest days and it keeps getting better. Make sure to read the extensive feature list Nicolas has laid out here on devot:ee. This is a solid add-on, and the dev is great with support and implementing suggestions. The default CP Edit list will seem very weak once you've gotten used to Zenbu!
