For some time we have been preparing for big changes in the Flexible Product Fields plugin. We plan to add these new kinds of fields that our customers report in support threads and which are the most requested. But there was an obstacle on this path that made it a bit difficult to add new features.
The current panel served us for a long time and fulfilled its tasks well. But the expansion of the plugin in its current form carried more cons than pros. For this reason our Developer has prepared a new panel based on the same mechanism as the panel of our other Flexible Checkout Fields plugin.
Changes in the Flexible Product Fields panel
The first screen after clicking on the Product Fields tab will remain the same. It will be a normal post page and the changes will be visible after clicking on a specific Group.
A refreshed panel with group settings will appear in a new window. It will contain the same options as the previous version. But the field settings will be tabbed to make it easier to add new options. The old field cards were overloaded with settings and information. Adding more would make it more difficult to navigate around the panel.
But the most visible change will of course be the clean and modern design consistent with the Flexible Checkout Fields panel. We hope the changes will be well received!
