My Top Selling Items

My Top Selling Items is an Account Level version of Top Selling Items feature. It displays the most ordered items for the logged in user’s account.

Types of Display

There are two views for “My Top Selling Items”. One is shown as a carousel and is shown on the shopping cart page. The other is a list section and is available to users once they log in. Both are built from the data specific to that user’s account and both are sourced from the same location. The data comes from JDE and is saved to a K-Rise table for the Account Top Selling Items. That table is refreshed by a scheduled batch job.

Carousel

The top selling items for the logged in user’s account are displayed in a carousel that allows the user to quickly scroll through the items they have purchased the most.

In the carousel, each top selling item shows some basic information and allows the user to perform these actions.

List

This list will display the same items as the carousel, but it comes from a list in the “My Lists” feature.

If you navigate to the “My Lists” feature, each active account will have an auto created list called “Account Top Selling Items List”.

Any time items are added to the K-Rise table for the Account Top Selling Items, it is also maintained in this list.

How Items are Considered Top Selling

There is a batch job called “TopSellingItemsAccount” which can be run from the “Work with Batch Jobs” page under “Site Management” from the admin panel.

The account level batch job first selects all the active accounts, then for each account, performs the following steps

First it deletes all the records in the K-Rise table for top selling items (EC_TopSellingItemsByAccount). It then runs a query to select the most ordered items from the JDE order history detail tables (F4211 and F42119) for that account and one by one, it adds them to the K-Rise table.

The items only get added if they also exist in the K-Rise Item Master. This way, if the admin has placed restrictions on the site to only allow a certain type of items to be imported and viewable in the site, those same restrictions extend to this import. If it wasn’t found in the item import due to various filters, it won’t be added here.

It does this in a loop until it either has enough to fill the carousel or it reaches the end of the list of ordered items in JDE.

It then continues to populate the Auto Created list in EC_Lists from the EC_TopSellingItemsByAccount table it just populated. This ensures that the list in the “My Lists” feature stays in sync with the carousel.

Changing the Number of Items that Display In the Carousel

The number of items that display is stored in a configuration variable and can be edited in the Feature Configurator through the Admin panel. To edit this, log in as admin and navigate to “Feature Configurator” under “Site Management”. Find and click on the configuration “TopSellingItems” to open all the variables and find “DisplayNumberOfTopSellingItemsAccount”. Enter a numeric value in this text box to display that number of items in the carousel.

Work with Top Selling Items Admin Panel

The Work With Top Selling Items Admin Panel allows the admin to edit the items in our K-Rise table which stores the top selling items. Although the items that are auto-filled into this table come from JDE, if the admin would like to add his/her own, it can be done here. Similarly, if the admin wanted to remove one of the items from displaying, there is a delete button next to each item in the list.

This is the same Admin Panel for both Top Selling Items (Site Level) and My Top Selling Items (Account Level), so make sure the radio button at the top is set to Account when editing.

Top Selling Items

Top Selling Items displays the most ordered items at a site level. These items are displayed in a carousel that allows the user to quickly scroll through the items that have sold the most in JDE. The data comes from JDE and is saved to a KRise table. That table is refreshed by a scheduled batch job.

In the carousel, each top selling item shows some basic information and allows the user to perform these actions.

How Items are Considered Top Selling

There is a batch job called “TopSellingItemsSite” which can be run from the “Work with Batch Jobs” page under “Site Management” from the admin panel.

The site level batch process first deletes all the records in the K-Rise table for top selling items (EC_TopSellingItems). It then runs a query to select the most ordered items from the JDE order history detail tables (F4211 and F42119). One by one, it adds them to the K-Rise table.

The items only get added if they also exist in the K-Rise Item Master. This way, if the admin has placed restrictions on the site to only allow a certain type of items to be imported and viewable in the site, those same restrictions extend to this import. If it wasn’t found in the item import due to various filters, it won’t be added here.

It does this in a loop until it either has enough to fill the carousel or it reaches the end of the list of ordered items in JDE.

Changing the Number of Items that Display In the Carousel

The number of items that display is stored in a configuration variable and can be edited in the Feature Configurator through the Admin panel. To edit this, log in as admin and navigate to “Feature Configurator” under “Site Management”. Find and click on the configuration “TopSellingItems” to open all the variables and find “DisplayNumberOfTopSellingItemsSite”. Enter a numeric value in this text box to display that number of items in the carousel.

Work with Top Selling Items Admin Panel

The Work With Top Selling Items Admin Panel allows the admin to edit the items in our K-Rise table which stores the top selling items. Although the items that are auto-filled into this table come from JDE, if the admin would like to add his/her own, it can be done here. Similarly, if the admin wanted to remove one of the items from displaying, there is a delete button next to each item in the list.

This is the same Admin Panel for both Top Selling Items (Site Level) and My Top Selling Items (Account Level), so make sure the radio button at the top is set to Site when editing.

Recommendations (Related Items)

When viewing an item on the item main page there is a carousel that contains recommended items. This allows the user to quickly scroll through items that are considered related.

In the carousel, each recommended item shows some basic information and allows the user to perform these actions.

How are Items Considered Related

There is a batch job called “RelatedItems” which can be run from the “Work with Batch Jobs” page under “Site Management” from the admin panel.

The batch job will first delete all records from the K-Rise Table EC_RelatedItems. Then it will go through all the items stored in the K-Rise Table EC_Item_Master and find related items first in JDE then in the K-Rise tables (EC_Item_Master and EC_Item_Branch) and store the max number of items from each in the K-Rise table EC_RelatedItems. The max number is determined by a configuration variable that is editable in the admin panel.

JDE Related Items

The process will go through the JDE order history detail tables (F4211 and F42119) and find all the orders that contain the current item that is processing and choose other items in the orders to be considered related. It will confirm that the item and related item exists in the K-Rise Item Master table and check if the record already exists in the K-Rise Related Items table to avoid duplicate records. If it does not already exist, it will then save the record to the K-Rise Related Items table with the type JDE.

K-Rise Tables Related Items

The process will go through the K-Rise items tables (EC_Item_Master and EC_Item_Branch) to find related items. It compares the items to see if they are from the same catalog and have the same Category 1, 2, and 3 codes. It will check if the item and related item pair exists in the K-Rise Related Items table to avoid duplicate records. It will then save the record to the K-Rise Related Items table with the type Category.

Work with Related Items Admin Panel

The Work with Related Items Admin Panel allows the admin to look up all the related items for a particular item. It will show the item number, related item number, and description, as well as where the related item came from. Clicking on the item numbers will open on the Item Quick View to give more information about that item.

ADD TO COMPARE - This button will add the item to the compare list.

MORE DETAILS - This button will forward the user to the Item Main Page.

Changing the Number of Items that Display

The number of items that display is stored in a configuration variable and can be edited in the Feature Configurator through the Admin panel. To edit this, log in as admin and navigate to “Feature Configurator” under “Site Management”. Find and click on the configuration “RelatedItems” to open all the variables and find “NumberToStore”.

Recently Viewed Items

There is  recently viewed items carousel on the ECShoppingCart page. Once a user views an item and opens the item main page, this item will be added to the carousel. The order of the items are based on the viewed timeline.

In the carousel, each recently viewed item shows some basic information and allows the user to perform these actions.

Source of Data

There is a process which is called once the user enters the Item Main Page. This process will update the EC_Items_Viewed table. It adds the item if it is new or updates the viewed time if it has been previously viewed. This table has two keys, user id and item number. We check the record based on both of them.

Once the total number of items has reached the max (right now hardcoded to 20), then the table will delete the top 1 record based the ascending order of view time.

Changing the Number of Items that Display In the Carousel

The number of items that display is stored in a configuration variable and can be edited in the Feature Configurator through the Admin panel.

To edit this, log in as admin and navigate to “Feature Configurator” under “Site Management”.

Find and click on the configuration “RecentlyViewedItem” to open all the variables and find “DisplayNumberOfRecentlyViewedItem”.

Enter a numeric value in this text box to display that number of items in the carousel.
