Grrr, this is sooo frustrating in the new site. Itemised Order history is listed alphabetically rather than chronologically.
Previously when I bought a store item and wanted to re-download it I could be assured that it would be at the top of the list but now as everything is alphabetic I have to remember what the item was called and search through the hundreds of items I bought.
In addition you have now removed the ability to link directly from an order to the item in the store if we need to be reminded what that particular item looked like.
Finally, if I am painstakingly working my way down the order history and decide to reset an order for download,  the window loads the downloadable orders list and then I have to click on my order history and painfully navigate through it again you get to where I was before.

Honestly DAZ, you couldn’t have made it more inconvenient for us to navigate our previous orders!!! Have you any intention of fixing these issues. These problems weren’t there in the old web site and now its a nightmare to find anything :-(

This issue has been much commented on, DAZ is aware that it isn’t satisfactory. I would hope, though I don’t know, that once more urgent issues are dealt with it will be possible to enhance the system.

The URL can be edited, once you are on the second or subsequent page, to jump to nay page by changing the number at the end and hitting enter. If you set the display to 50 items per page even a mammoth history like mine is pretty quick to negotiate, as long as you do remember the name in the way it is entered in the system.

As for the reset links - if you right-click and select open in new tab, or open in new window, you won’t lose your place in the order history.

I feel your pain.  My Itemized list, even at 50 per page is 62 pages long. I PRAY they add a search feature.  In the meantime, here’s my (somewhat clumsy, but better than nothing) solution to clicking links forever.


I’ve found that the easiest way of zipping through your history is by using the address bar, not the navigation links on the page.  Examine the link: (Spaces added to prevent hyperlinking.


h ttps:// www.daz3d.com/ shop /customer/ account/ itemizedHistory/ ?limit=50&p=33


50 per page, and this link is for page 33 of my history.


So, for example, if I know0 through the start of A products are on page 1, and Z is on page 61, it’s relatively easy to get NEAR your target product in just a few shots at the target by thinking about it’s placement in the alphabet.  For example, if I was looking for “Medusa V4,” I’d know “M” is somewhere in the middle of the alphabet. I could pick, say, page 31.  Going there shows I’m in the middle Ls.  Bounce over a few pages—33—and Voila!  Medusa appears.  (But not really, or I’d be a statue.) 


And its easier if your history isn’t 62 “50-items-per-click” pages.

Hope this lends some relief until DAZ fixes this.  We can dream, right?

Great minds think alike!!  smile

You’re welcome!  The one you’ve downloaded will expire in a few hours btw, depending on your timezone, but I’ve just uploaded a new version which will last a couple of months more.

Greetings,
My fix works a bit differently, and I’m still making it semi-user friendly, but it works like this:


Sign up for the web app.
Do an automatic import of your purchase history.
Install a user-script (like the one in my sig, but a little different, and customized for each user).


After that, whenever you visit an item page for something you’ve already bought, about a quarter of a second later, a little note pops up above the ‘Add to Cart’ button.


I’ve imported all the current DAZ items, and fine-tuned my ‘sales’ import, wishlist import, and purchase history import.  The code all works, I just have to make it something anybody other than myself can understand and use easily.  Good UI is my kryptonite. wink


There’s other really cool stuff in there like filtering your wishlist by price, discount percentage, artist, custom tags…or doing the same to your purchase history (‘What are all the items I bought from ARTCollaborations?’)


(Back-end stuff that you’ll never need to see follows, showing the kind of things the service can do…)

Item.joins(:purchases).where(:purchases => { user_id: @user.id }).tagged_with('ARTCollaborations').map &:title
 
=> ["Recess!""Sam for V4""Garden Escape Arbor Gate""Garden Escape Bridge""Temple of Light",
"Garden Escape Patio Furniture""Garden Escape Pergola""Summer Gazebo""Garden Pavilion",
"Garden Escape Well""Sweet Dreams""The Tent""Celestial Pool""The Backyard""The Loading Dock"

That query took 6ms…it’s pretty darn fast.

If I can get THIS on my browser, I’ll send you virtual, imaginary chocolate chip cookies. Or peanut butter.  Or oatmeal.  Whatever is your favorite. LOL PLEASE explain how I can get this to work.  I’m familiar with scripting, so might I be able to customize this by just browsing your source code?  Will YOU provide the web app which I’d need to"sign up for?”  I was fuzzy about what “sign up for the web app” meant. 


I WANT this.  BADLY.  If I can help in any way, let me know.


To both of the kind souls working on this (and quite possibly preventing me from blowing up my computer) PM me your paypal address.  I’d like to donate for your effort.

Taozen & Cypherfox, I’m blown away by your skills and your kindness to the community in making these tools available for us for free. If anyone from DAZ web development is listening, maybe you should give these guys something for doing what the site should have done in the first place. After all, these tools only stimulate more people purchasing from your site and you are the ones getting the profit! Just saying…!

How do I do this?  I’ve figured everything else out.

Just to ping on in this, I’ve not forgotten about it.  I’m still working (actually shockingly hard) on it.  I just had the ‘Oh…HELL yeah!’ moment, when I was grabbing DM’s stuff for the sale, and was about to add something to my cart when I noticed the little red text over it.  I laughed for nearly 3 minutes. grin  Saved by my own tool…


The answer will be that you sign up on my web site (which I’d be happy to PM to you when I’ve got it working marginally for non-programmer types, if you’d like to alpha test it) and give it access to your purchase history.  After that, install in Chrome or Firefox a plugin, and it should ‘Just Work’ from there.


What browser do you use, out of curiosity?

Well thank you, that’s very kind of you! grin  A DAZ gift card will be fine as well, if you like.
