Crisp Retail Analytics updates

New Adhoc report page on the Luminate Shopper Category Benchmarking report

What’s new?
This Luminate Shopper report now contains an Adhoc Select a Time Period page. Like other ad hoc pages, the pages in this report are blank report templates that allow you to create a custom analysis, so you can quickly answer specific business questions. You can easily add the dimensions and facts that are relevant to your analysis and use bulk store and item filter fields to paste a list and quickly hone in on the exact stores and/or items you are interested in without the need to search through separate filters or make one selection at a time. For more on Adhoc reports, see the Walmart Luminate Adhoc report article.

Retail Excellence report enhancements

What’s new?

We’ve added measures to this report that provide the latest data for on order, on hand, and in stock metrics, to ensure you can understand the cause of nil picks by having the latest data for comparison. For example, you can now see if a store that doesn’t have inventory on hand, does currently have inventory on order. This report now contains the following measures:

  • On Order Quantity (Store - Latest)
  • On Order Amount (Store - Latest)
  • On Order Cost (Store - Latest)

Store Fulfillment Item Details Report Page enhancements:

The table now contains the following measures:

  • In Stock Replenishment % (Store) Current
  • On Hand Quantity (Store - Latest)
  • On Order Quantity (Store - Latest)
  • On Hand Quantity Weekly Average (Store)

Buyer and buyer code fields are now available to add to reports in Luminate Basic

What’s new?
The Buyer Name and Buyer Code metrics from our normalized models that we previously added to the Crisp Retail Analytics semantic model are now available in Luminate Basic reports. These fields simplify reporting if you have a broad portfolio and need to speak to a specific buyer (merchant) request. They allow you to see only the products for which your particular merchant is responsible.

New OTIF measures on the Luminate Charter Performance Insights report

What’s new?

The Supplier Scorecard page on this report now aligns more closely with the Supplier Scorecard report in the Luminate portal, so you can see all the sales, inventory, and on time and in full (OTIF) performance metrics you need in one place. The following metrics are now available in the Sales Metrics table on this page:

  • OTIF- On Time %
  • OTIF- In Full %

New order forecast metrics added to our Crisp Retail Analytics model

What’s new?

The following order forecast metrics are now available for you to add to your reports:

  • Need Arrival Date / Scheduled Arrival Date: The date by which the order needs to arrive at the destination to meet demand.
  • Need Ship Date: The latest date by which the order must be shipped to meet the need arrival date.
  • Available Ship Date (Charter only): The earliest date when the order is ready to be shipped from the supplier.
  • Scheduled Ship Date (Charter only): The planned date for the order to be shipped from the supplier.

Crisp Walmart reporting now fully transitioned to Luminate

What’s new?

We have finished transitioning our Walmart reporting from using DSS data to being fully powered by Luminate Basic for the most recent two years of history.

Digital Pulse report enhancements

What’s new?

We’ve made the following enhancements to all report pages to add more filters and make them easier to use:

  • You can now add the following filters when customizing filters:
    • Traited Store Item Count: The store count of all the items with the replenishment status as Active, Inactive and New.
    • Valid Store Item Count: The valid count of store/item combinations that are replenishable items.
  • The Store Country filter that is applied to all pages, is now set by default to is not = PR, so that just U.S. states excluding outlying territories are displayed.
  • Added header rows to tables and made some layout enhancements to some visualizations on the Digital Pulse Item Detail and Publication Insights Details report pages.

Crisp and UNFI dashboard enhancements

Extra security step when accepting email invitations to Crisp

What’s new?
Now, when accept an invitation to Crisp, you must manually enter your email address and click Accept Invitation before you are authenticated to enhance security.

Crisp Harmonized dashboards now more closely match UNFI Insights sales dashboards

What’s new?
Our Crisp harmonized dashboards now use the same version of underlying UNFI data as other UNFI Insights Sales dashboards. As a result, some metrics on our harmonized dashboards are now standardized and provide greater accuracy. For example, the previous data set powering our harmonized dashboards determined cost using wholesale cost for gross and a flat 80% of wholesale for net. The new data set provides the true price the retailer paid, which is more accurate. Also, the previous data set contained records with 0 sales, while the new one does not.

Source and Destination connector updates

New Walmart Chargebacks and Disputes connector

What’s new?

A new connector called Walmart Chargebacks is now available that provides the following Walmart data:
Note: We will be renaming the connector to “Retail Link for Luminate Basic Subscribers” in our next release.

  • On Time In Full (OTIF) Scorecard
  • Accounts Payable Disputes Portal (APDP)

This data is extremely powerful in helping you understand how you are delivering against Walmart’s stated standards and any charges assessed for violating those standards. We also pull the status of your current chargeback disputes with Walmart to add even more value. This data has also been added to Crisp Retail Analytics.

New Kroger Data Direct Tables - Daily Out of Stock

What’s new?
We have added new tables to provide data from a new daily report that Kroger released to track out of stocks at a store level. It is available for all current Data Direct customers.

May 2024 updates

Crisp Retail Analytics updates

Enhancements to markdown pages on the Performance Insights report

What’s new?
We made the following enhancements to these report pages:

  • MUMD % of Sales Quantity: Previously, this measure was displayed as decimal number. It is now correctly formatted as a percentage with two decimal points.
  • On the Markdown - Store Detail page, we made the following enhancements:
    • Updated the sort order on the matrix visual to Mumd Amount
    • Changed the Select a Time Period filter from multi-select to single select

Category Benchmarking report enhancements

What’s new?
We made the following enhancements to the Sales and Share by Segment page on this report:

  • The stacked bar charts are now sorted on the same axis
  • The Share Point Sales Diff by Product Category Group chart now has the My Sales measure added as a tooltip field and the axis on this chart is now sorted to match the My Sales by Product Category Group chart to the left.

New ‘Last 26 weeks’ time filter option

What’s new?
On all reports with a Select a Time Period filter, a Last 26 weeks option is now available in this filter to allow you to easily analyze a rolling quarter.

New Performance Insights report pages: Rollback Summary and Geographic Detail

What’s new?
We have added the following new pages to the Performance Insights report:

  • Rollback Summary: Provides an easy way for you to select an item or group of items on rollback see an overview of the performance of the item(s).
  • Geographic Detail: Provides a quick overview of geographic performance over time by a variety of sales, inventory, velocity, and pricing measures.

Last Year measures now more accurately reflect timing for YTD comparison

What’s new?
We resolved an issue where prior year YTD measures were returning data for the full prior year time period rather than only the completed weeks of the current year. This allows month to date (MTD) values to be more accurate when compared year over year. This change affects many reports, but the Performance Insights Supplier Scorecard report is a key one.

New Home Office Recommended Retail Price measure in our models

What’s new?
We added the Home Office Recommended Price measure to the Crisp Retail Analytics models, so you can add it to your reports when personalizing visualizations and compare this pricing measure to the store specific retail and average retail amounts. Understanding differences in these price amounts can help you identify stores where your products are above/below home office retail amount.

Product Mix Breakdown report enhancements

What’s new?
We’ve made the following enhancements to this report:

  • New Supplier Overview page (Advisor workspace only): This page allows category advisors to see supplier share (Sales Amount and Sales Quantity) for their categories, as well as a share point difference for each category.
  • Created a new measure and corresponding filter called Crisp Modular Status to reduce the number of records that load in the initial report, thus improving load times and performance.
  • Made some visual enhancements to sizing of elements on the report pages.
  • Made some enhancements to filter sorting for better usability.

Stores with No Sales Measures renamed to be more precise

What’s new?
We renamed the following measures to clarify that these were stores not scanning:

  • Fact Inventory Store'[Stores with no Sales (Traited) > renamed to: 'Fact Inventory Store'[Stores Not Scanning(Traited)
  • Fact Inventory Store'[Stores with no Sales (Valid)] > renamed to: 'Fact Inventory Store'[Stores Not Scanning (Valid)]

New Utilities POD Count report page

What’s new?
The new POD Count page on the Utilities report provides an easy way to view your full POD count vs. just your PODs with sales, so you can easily determine the POD count used for Crisp billing purposes.

You can now add buyer and buyer code fields to your reports

What’s new?
The buyer and buyer_code fields from our normalized models are now part of our Power BI semantic model, allowing you to leverage buyer name and buyer code across Crisp Retail Analytics reports. This simplifies reporting if you have a broad portfolio and need to address a specific buyer (merchant) request. It allows you to see only the products for which your particular merchant is responsible.

New OTIF Performance page on the Supply Chain Health report for Charter

What’s new?
This new report page allows you to analyze your supply chain and determine areas to focus on for improvement.

Rollback Summary report enhancements

What’s new?
We previously released the Rollback Summary page on the Performance Insights report. Rollback Summary provides an easy way for you to select an item or group of items on rollback and see an overview of the performance of the item(s). We’ve now made this report even better with the following enhancements:

  • Adjusted layering for better visibility of report elements.
  • The transaction type table and service channel visualization can now be personalized.

Custom attribution filters in our model now use bi-directional filtering

What’s new?
You can personalize filters to use custom attributes in Crisp Retail Analytics. We’ve now set the filtering direction for custom attribute filters to bi-directional. Bi-directional filtering allows filtering to flow both directions between related tables, which allows for more intuitive filtering behavior between related tables. For example, if you set up bi-directional filtering between a Sales and Products table, selecting a sales transaction in the Sales table would automatically filter the Products table to show the associated product, and vice versa.

New Department Overview report page on the Category Benchmarking report

What’s new?
The new Department Overview pages allows you to monitor the impact of both product segmentation and path to purchase, so you can understand performance drivers for the entire category.

Product filters now allow you to search by product name as well as product number

What’s new?
To help you more easily locate products in our filters, you can now search product filters using either product number or product name (item description).

All reports now contain the latest Walmart week

What’s new?
We’ve added the most current completed Walmart year and week number to the report header area of each report page to help you quickly identify date information for our reports.

Crisp and UNFI dashboard enhancements

UNFI Conventional Specialty Chain Sales dashboards now deprecated as data has been added to Conventional Sales dashboards

What’s new?
We have deprecated specialty chain sales dashboards as all of the data found in those dashboards is now available in the sales dashboards. Confidential stores under non-confidential chains, like Bravo and Niemann, are visible in the Sales by Chain table.

Conventional Distribution Expansion dashboard now loads faster

What’s new?
We’ve made performance enhancements to this dashboard for faster load times.

On key UNFI dashboards, you can now roll products up by product name or UPC

What’s new?
Previously, we rolled up different UPCs with the same product name, but sometimes products with the same name from UNFI did not need to be rolled up as people wanted to see those UPCs separately. You can now use the Group by Product or UPC filter to decide if you want to roll your products up by product name or UPC to ensure you can analyze their products the way it makes sense for your business.

How do I see it?
From any UNFI Sales, Distribution, Velocity, or Inventory dashboard, just select the new Group by Product or UPC filter, then select the criteria by which you want to group products. If you select Product, products with the same name will be rolled up into one. If you select UPC, products with the same UPC will be rolled up into one.

Source and Destination connector updates

New Kroger Stratum Direct tables

What’s new?
This connector now contains the following new tables:

  • Warehouse Substitutions: Provides better insight into which case UPCs are being used for substitutions of store orders and it includes 3 months of history.
  • Store Deliveries: Provides information on deliveries to stores from warehouses by Base UPC/Case UPC, and includes 3 months of history.
  • Warehouse Orders: Provides information on orders from the Kroger warehouse to vendors.
  • Store Authorization: Provides information on product store authorization.

New Kroger Data Direct report: Store Deliveries

What’s new?
A new report was released in Data Direct called Store Deliveries, so we added new corresponding data tables in Crisp. This report shows deliveries to store from their their assigned warehouses.

New Kroger Data Direct report: Warehouse Substitutions

What’s new?
A new report was released in Data Direct called Warehouse Substitutions, so we've added new corresponding data tables in Crisp. This report shows substitutions of store orders with different cases to allow for better visibility to which case UPCs are being substituted.

April 2024 updates

Crisp Retail Analytics updates

New velocity time intelligence measures

What’s new?
We’ve added the following measures to our fuzzy time ranges, allowing you to use pre-built fuzzy time periods for these measures and simplify your year over year and week over week comparisons for multiple time periods.

  • Velocity Sales (Traited Stores)
  • Velocity Sales (Valid Stores)
  • Stores Scanning

You can now more easily search for custom filters to add to your reports

What’s new?
If you want to change a filter on your reports, you can now select the More options menu on a filter and see an option to search for a visualization. Previously, this functionality was only available by selecting Ctrl+F or Cmd+F, so was harder to discover and use.

How do I see it?
Just click the More options () button at the top right of a filter (e.g., Product Category) then select Search.

release_notes_CRA_search.png

Product Mix Breakdown report enhancement

What’s new?
Now, on the Post Modular Review page, if you select a bar in a visualization, the other visualizations in this report filter based on your selection.

The Launch Success Tracker report now more accurately portrays stores not selling

What’s new?
Previously, the Stores Not Selling (Traited) metric on this report was displaying stores that did not sell the product over the entire lifespan of the store, rather than just over the selected period. We’ve adjusted this calculation to now accurately portray stores not selling in the selected period.

The Adhoc report now contains a page that allows you to analyze a future time period for forecasting

What’s new?
You can now create an Adhoc report for a future time period to view your forecast information. Previously, you could not set this report to a future date. 

All reports now contain a “Current Week” time filter option

What’s new?
On Charter and Advisor reports, all Select a Time Period filters now contain a Current Week option.

Category Benchmarking report enhancements

What’s new?
We made the following enhancements to this report.

Updates to all pages

  • We made some adjustments to margins, spacing, and layering to enhance the layout of pages in this report.
  • We added titles to all charts
  • We removed decimal points from Fact UPC Sales measures

Overview page

  • We combined the top two matrix visualizations into one
  • We combined the bottom two tables into one and move the charts below the combined table

Sales and Share by Segment page

  • Removed subtotals from the matrix
  • Ensured stacked bar charts were sorted the same and aligned correctly

Item Details page

Added grand totals to the matrix

Luminate normalized model changes allow for simplified filter options

What’s new?
Previously, product subdimensions (e.g., category group, category, subcategory, department, segment) contained both e-commerce and in store data. Now, e-commerce products have the following distinct product subdimensions: Dim Ecomm Prod Cat Group, Dim Ecomm Prod Dept, Dim Ecomm Prod Cat, Dim Ecomm Prod Subcat, Dim Ecomm Prod Segment.

E-commerce data has been removed from the following product subdimensions: Dim Brand, Dim Product, Category Group, Dim Product Department, Dim Product Category, Dim Product Subcategory, Dim Product Segment, Dim Product Fineline, Dim Product Status, Dim Product Type.

Having subdimensions that are more targeted to the type of data people are analyzing allows us to simplify our filter options.

Futurecast report enhancements

What’s new?

We made some adjustments to margins and table widths to enhance the layout of this report.

  • On the Item Summary page, the table now sorts descending to “Avg POS L4W vs Avg N4W Forecast” by default.
  • On the DC Item Summary and Store Item Summary pages, the tables now have a “valid store count is not blank” filter applied to allow you to focus only on valid store trends and reduce noise in the data.

Supply Chain Diagnostics Charter and Advisor report enhancements

What’s new?
We made some adjustments to margins and transparency to enhance the layout of pages in this report.

On the Supply Chain Diagnostics - Replenishment Action - Summary page:

  • The trend chart is now disconnected from the Select a Time Period filter and set to statically represent the previous 52 weeks of trends, regardless of filters, to show appropriate context to the underlying trends.
  • The table now has a “valid store count is not blank” filter applied to allow you to focus only on valid store trends and reduce noise in the data.
  • The table columns have been reordered to reflect how most people review and switch between them and allow them to more easily spot correlating trends.

Performance Insights report improvements

What’s new?
Previously, the brand filter was not connected to the other filters in this report, so if you applied a category filter, for example, the brand filter would display all brands, not just those in the selected category. The brand filter is now connected to the other filters, so the options in it update based on the other filters you have selected.

Sales amount and sales quantity tables now have unnecessary subtotals removed to make reviewing the data easier.

On the Futurecast report, we resolved an issue where forecast values were inflated for some customers

What’s new?
We resolved an issue where some forecast values were inflated due to the models not being refreshed to pick up the latest records.

New Crisp Modular Plan Status dimension will allow you to more easily identify a product’s modular status

What’s new?
Currently, to understand whether a product is currently on a modular you need to use modular start and end dates, which can be difficult if you don't know the exact dates. We created a new dimension in the Modular Plan dataset that uses logic on the effective date and discontinue date to determine a product’s status on the modular (current, discontinued, or future).

This new dimension will allow us to add Crisp Modular Status filters to reports like Product Mix Breakdown and Portfolio Strategy, to help you more easily understand a product’s status on a modular.

You can now drag to change the width of the report menu in Crisp Retail Analytics

What’s new?
You can now click and drag the report menu to expand it, so you can see report and page names more easily.

Digital Pulse report filters now persist when you select different pages in the report

What’s new?
We resolved an issue where when you switched between pages in this report, the filters did not persist.

Luminate Retail Excellence Charter and Category Advisor report enhancements

What’s new?
We’ve updated this report with the following enhancements:

  • We added a new Store Fulfillment Trend page to this report that allows you to easily review first time pick rate and pre and post-substitution rates over time to assess whether your brand’s products are performing well on availability for online orders and ensure your are meeting the targets provided by your merchants.
  • The current week is now an option in the time period filter and the time period filter now defaults to the past 13 weeks.
  • We made some adjustments to margins, spacing, and layering to enhance the layout of this report.

Luminate Adhoc report enhancements

What’s new?
We’ve updated this report with the following enhancements:

  • We updated the Select a Time Period filter on the Select a Time Period page to now only allow you to select a single option.
  • We made some adjustments to margins, spacing, and layering to enhance the layout of this report.

Luminate Pricing Dynamics report enhancements

What’s new?

We’ve updated this report with the following enhancements:

  • The time period now defaults to Last Week.
  • We made some adjustments to margins, spacing, and layering to enhance the layout of this report.
  • We have improved performance on the Pricing Dynamics Price Point Map page by moving the map and table visuals to a hidden page that you can only access via drill through from the main page.

Luminate Digital Pulse report enhancements

What’s new?
This report includes a new Publication Insights Store Detail page that allows you to easily drill-down to store details for the following lost sales metrics: Untransactable POD Count and Digitally Transactable Lost Sales. We also made the following enhancements:

  • The time period filter on pages in this report now defaults to Last Week.
  • We made some adjustments to margins, spacing, and layering to enhance the layout of this report.
  • The Publication Insights Trend page is renamed to Publication Insights Reason Summary.
  • The table on the Publication Insights Details page now contains the total store count.
  • On the Digital Pulse Item Detail page, we changed the trend chart to an item hierarchical bar chart that allows you to drill down to the item level.

Crisp and UNFI dashboard enhancements

We resolved an issue on KeHE inventory dashboards where weeks of supply were incorrect for customers with multiple supplier IDs

What’s new?
Previously, our weeks of supply (WOS) calculation could only include one max sales date, which caused the calculation to be off for customers that had more than one supplier id (and thus more than one max sales date). This issue has been resolved and KeHE inventory dashboards now include accurate WOS values.

New warning message that appears before you delete a connector

What’s new?
Previously, if you deleted a connector, assuming you could recreate it without losing data, you didn't receive a warning that deleting a connector also deletes your historical data. You now receive a warning message when you try to delete a connector that informs you of this. If you are having trouble with credentials or otherwise need help re-establishing a connection, please contact Crisp support

We’ve added a “report last updated” tile to all standard Crisp dashboards

What’s new?
All Crisp dashboards now include a tile with the date the dashboard was last updated to make sure you aren’t referencing stale data and help remind you to update out-of-date connectors.

Year Over Year dashboards now provide more custom filter options and accurate year start values

What’s new?
The filters on year over year dashboards now provide more custom ranges, similar to other dashboards, including custom time filter ranges. We also fixed a bug where filtering to the current year incorrectly showed 0 values in charts for the first week of the year.

Source and Destination connector updates

New Walmart Luminate eComm Subscriptions tables

What’s new?
These new tables provide information about items that are sold online as part of a subscription and includes sales, shipments, and delivery data.

Note: This feed is for supplier performance only (there is no equivalent category advisor feed).

March 2024 updates

Crisp Retail Analytics updates

Unnecessary folders on Crisp Retail Analytics reports are now hidden to make it easier to personalize visualizations

What’s new?
When you personalize the columns in your visualizations, you are presented with a wide variety of options that can be a lot to sort through. We’ve now hidden Row Count folders from the available options, as these are not columns typically used, to reduce visual clutter and make it easier to find the columns you need.

New Crisp Retail Analytics Launch Success reports for Luminate Charter and Basic

What’s new?
These reports provide new item tracking and insights to help you gauge the success of product launches. You can select your item(s) and understand weekly performance, instock, store counts, % of valid stores scanning, and # of stores not selling.

New Category Benchmarking report for Luminate Charter

What’s new?
This report provides category information about shopper behavior down to the UPC level. This is the first time that Walmart has provided category visibility for non-category advisors. You can see Store/UPC/Week data for the categories in which you participate.

New Adhoc report for Luminate Charter and Basic

What’s new?
This report provides a nearly blank canvas for you to create an on the fly analysis to answer specific business questions. You can quickly add the Dimensions and Facts that are relevant to the business question at hand. This report also includes bulk store and item slicers, so you can paste a list and get to the exact stores and/or items you are interested in without the need to search through separate slicers and make one selection at a time. We’ve also made some enhancements from the original version where we streamlined tables and visualizations on this report, added a matrix visualization, and made some substitutions for the basic version.

New Markup Markdown (MUMD) page on the Performance Insights report

What’s new?
This new report page provides information on item markups/markdowns to help you measure sales against price changes, promotions, etc.

For Luminate reports, search now includes report pages

Now, when you search Luminate Crisp Retail Analytics reports, your results will also include report pages that are hidden or lower in the report hierarchy to improve the scope and quality of search results.
rn_CRA_search.png

New option to clear recent reports

What’s new?
When you access Crisp Retail Analytics reports, the initial screen lists your recent reports. You can now clear these recent reports if needed.
rn_CRA_clear_search.png

Enhanced supplier scorecard page on the Crisp Retail Analytics Performance Insights report

What’s new?
The metrics in the Sales metrics table on this report now more closely align with the metrics in the Luminate Charter Scorecard source report, so you don't have to manually access data in the Luminate tool provided by Walmart.

New Utilities report for Luminate Charter and Basic

What’s new?
This new report allows you to see a comprehensive product and store list, so you can easily check for issues with your products or find store details to help you take action on insights or address issues.

All Crisp Retail Analytics reports now use common filters

What’s new?
All Crisp Retail Analytics reports now use a common filter header that includes the following filters: Product Slicer, Store Slicer, and Select a Time Period. A common set of filters/slicers helps provide a consistent experience across reports.

Visualizations where you can drill-through to another page now include a drill-through icon

What’s new?
On Crisp Retail Analytics reports, you can now more easily identify visualizations where you can drill-through to get more granular data with a new icon on visualizations that allow drill-through.

How do I see it?
Look for the magnifying glass icon at the top of a visualization that indicates you can drill-through on the visualization to get more details.
rn_CRA_drillthrough_icon.png

Crisp Retail Analytics Luminate Basic Performance Insights report enhancements

What’s new?
We’ve updated the Performance Insights report for Luminate Basic with the following enhancements:

  • On all report pages, we’ve made adjustments to ensure the hover toolbar menu is not hidden on small screens.
  • Insights Dashboard page enhancements:
    • We’ve renamed the Insights Dashboard report page to Insights Overview.
    • We’ve changed the POS Sales $ by Brand chart to be POS Sales $ by Order Channel.
    • Now, if you select a state in the heat map, the other visualizations in this report filter to the selected state.
    • Now, if you select a bar in the Last 52 Weeks- POS Sales visualization, the other two visualizations on this report do not filter by your selection for better usability.
  • Performance Insights Item Detail page enhancements
    • We’ve removed subtotals from the Sales Metrics table to avoid repeat data.

New Crisp Retail Analytics Pricing Dynamics report and bug fixes

What’s new?
This new report helps you refine your pricing strategy to boost sales and margins. We have also fixed an issue where on the initial version of the Price Change Velocity Tracker page of this report certain visualizations were not displaying data.

New Supply Chain Diagnostics report for Luminate Basic and new content for Charter

What’s new?
The Supply Chain Diagnostics report, which helps you identify and resolve supply chain inefficiencies to streamline your operations, is now available for Luminate Basic. We’ve also added the following new pages to this report for Luminarte Charter (these report pages are also available in the Luminate Basic version, but were built into that report from the start):

  • Replenishment Action - Summary: Helps you see the lost sales impact by product, so you can better strategize replenishment.
  • Replenishment Action - Store Detail: Allows you to drill-in and take action on replenishment at the store level.

Luminate Charter Digital Pulse report enhancements

What’s new?
We’ve made the following naming enhancements to this report:

  • The Top 10 Lost Sales visualization is renamed to Top 10 Lost Sales - Last 90 Days.
  • The Lost Sales chart is renamed to Lost Sales - Last 90 Days.

Crisp and UNFI dashboard enhancements

UNFI dashboards now display channel names instead of just channel numbers

What’s new?
UNFI data typically just includes a channel number, so we previously listed only numbers in our channel filters on UNFI dashboards. We now include the channel name in these filters to help you more easily find the channels you are looking for. 

Stop and Shop store number 9242 now displays correct address location

What’s new?
We resolved an issue where our store cleanup process was causing store number 9242 to list the address location as Florida, when this store is actually located in New Jersey.

UNFI Insights Conventional dashboards now include a CMAP filter to help you focus on cases on promotion

What’s new?
Some people use CMAP (Category Management Allowance Program) data to identify cases on promotion, so we added this as a filter. You can now filter for a promotion time period, then filter for a specific CMAP value (equal to your case allowance for the promotion) to help you pinpoint just cases that went toward a specific promotion.

How do I see it?

From the filters section of a dashboard, select More, then enter a value in the CMAP field.

UNFI Insights Chain filter and fields now reflect the chain name rather than the store owner name

What’s new?
The conventional chain field provided by UNFI actually provides the store owner, rather than the chain name most people know and use. In our dashboards, we previously displayed the chain the way UNFI did. To make it easier for you to see the chain data you need, we updated the Chain filters and fields in UNFI Insights dashboards to be based on the UNFI grp_2_description field which provides the chain name that suppliers are typically familiar with.

Edit products more easily on the redesigned Master Data Management (MDM) screen

What’s new?
The new version of this screen allows you to more easily edit product details and create store region groups. The legacy Edit Products screen has been deprecated. The new screen provides the following new features:
rn_mdm.png

  • Summary tab: Provides information about what has changed for your products and stores since the last time you uploaded a file, so you can keep track of changes you may want to take action on.
  • Store data tab: Allows you to create store region groups that you can use to filter your dashboards by regions/groups that make sense for your business. For example, if you want to focus on stores in the southwestern United States and not all your retailers/distributors group stores that way, you can create your own store grouping. You can also create groups for things that are not based on region, such as stores at which you are running a promotion or stores you want to focus on for outreach on supply issues.
  • Change log: Easily see when updates to your MDM file were made, how many rows were updated, and who made the change.
  • Progress stepper: When you upload MDM changes, you can now see a progress step indicator to let you know where your changes are in the process of being validated and submitted.
  • Download New Rows button: You can now choose to download a file that contains only rows that are new since your last upload, so that uploading/downloading is quicker and you can focus only on new rows that may need your attention.

How do I see it?

From the navigation sidebar or home screen in Crisp, just select MDM.

How do I learn more?
See the Managing products and store groups with master data manager (MDM) article.

Source and Destination connector updates

New Kroger Stratum tables and fix for source schema change

What’s new?
We now have the following new reports available:

  • Warehouse Inventory
  • Expected Price
  • Store Inventory
  • Sales Plan

We have also fixed an issue where the way we were handling the "transaction date" field started causing pipeline issues when Kroger changed this field from mandatory to optional.

Kroger Stratum Direct normalized data now available

What’s new?
The normalized data tables for this connector are now available.

Walmart Luminate Item Attribute tables include new item share metrics

What’s new?
On Item Attribute tables, new item share metrics are available which allow a supplier to see specific items that belong to a different supplier inside Luminate Charter without requiring either supplier to be a category advisor.

The Item Attribute tables have been updated with two new flags:

  • item_share_ind: Indicates whether or not an item is visible through Retail Link Item Share access.
  • item_share_cost_ind: Indicates whether or not item costs are visible through Retail Link Item Share access.

Note: A brand has to have specific rights inside of Retail Link to see cost information. If you have these rights, then cost information will be present for that item.
