Call for Testing: WooCommerce for iOS 1.4

WooCommerce for iOS version 1.4 will be available soon on the beta channel. Thanks for beta testing! Your feedback helps us make sure new WooCommerce releases run smoothly and meet your needs.

What’s new?

  • Order Status enhancements:
    • You can now manually change the status of an order on the Order Details screen. To test, go to the Orders tab and select an order; in the order details, next to its status, tap the edit (pencil) icon to change its status. Confirm that you can change the order status, and that the selected status appears as expected in the order details and list of orders.
    • Custom order status labels are now fully supported and properly displayed. To test, set up at least one custom order status for your store; confirm that you can change an order to that custom status, and that the custom status appears as expected throughout the app.
    • Filtering by custom order status is now supported. To test, set up at least one custom order status for your store; in the app, go to the Orders tab, tap the filter icon in the top right, and select your custom status. Confirm that the orders in the list are filtered to only show orders with that custom status.
  • Shipment tracking has been added to the Order Details screen. This feature works with the Shipment Tracking Extension. To test, set up that extension and add shipment tracking to an order on the web; in the app, confirm that the tracking information appears on the order and you can tap the “Track package” link to view the tracking details.
  • Support for right-to-left (RTL) languages has been improved with better handling of graphical components flipping. To test, switch your device language to an RTL language (such as Hebrew or Arabic) and confirm that graphics appear in the correct direction and placement.

  1. I tested the order status enhancements and RTL graphic components and everything seems to be working as expected with those.

    Shipment tracking is mostly working for me. I tested a custom shipping provider and two real ones (USPS and Royal Mail). The provider and tracking number show up correctly, and the “Track package” link worked in each case. However, the shipping date isn’t correct for me — I have shipments dated in November and March that are all showing up as shipped in January.

    Here are the shipments I see on the web:

    And here they are in the app, all with the correct year and day but wrong month (January):


  2. Regarding the RTL enhancements, I noticed a couple localization issues — not specifically related to RTL graphic components — while I was looking through different screens in the app:

    The first is that there is some tab navigation that is still done LTR. (I am not a native speaker or regular user of RTL interfaces, so I think this is backwards from what’s expected but it would be great to get a second opinion on this.) I noticed this on “My store” where the stats tabs (Days, Weeks, Months, Years) and Top Performers tabs (Today, This week, This month, This year) are ordered left to right:

    The second is that the screen under Settings > Open Source Licenses wasn’t localized. I see that file (woocommerce-ios/WooCommerce/Resources/HTML/licenses.html) isn’t localizable so I’m not sure if this is intentional or an oversight.
