What’s new: AutomateWoo 2.8 and Refer A Friend 1.3

It’s been a while since the last blog post but AutomateWoo development has been far from idle. There have been two major releases of AutomateWoo in recent months and today we are releasing a major update to the Refer A Friend add-on.

Everyone loves metrics

You may already be aware of the new dashboard added in AutomateWoo 2.8 but if not, now is a good time to update! AutomateWoo’s existing reports section is still in there but the dashboard allows for a quick bird’s eye view of AutomateWoo activity.

Refer A Friend updates

Two new admin views have been added to the Refer A Friend add-on. Referral invites are now recorded and displayed in the new invites table and there is also a dashboard widget for showing these invites.


A list view of advocates has been added that shows their referral activity and store credit amounts. We have a few requests for adding the share widget to order transactional emails which has now been added and can be enabled in settings.



What else is new?

  • New triggers Order Payment Complete, Subscription Before Renewal
  • New rules: User Is Active Subscriber, Order Coupons, Cart Coupons, Cart Items, User’s Purchased Products
  • New product email template ‘Order Table’
  • Improved all ActiveCampaign actions
  • New unsubscribes importer tool
  • Added support for order item meta data
  • Improved and added direct links to the queue, carts, guests and unsubscribes admin pages
  • Improved and optimized abandoned cart tracking
  • Made workflow logs are more informative

Update tip

If you are using any AutomateWoo add-ons please make sure to update the main AutomateWoo plugin and any add-ons at the same time. This is especially important in the latest releases (2.8.2 and 1.3) due to a code restructure.

What’s coming

We are still in full development mode for AutomateWoo, there are so many of small to medium sized features coming soon but the major ones are: WooCommerce Memberships integration, campaigns and opt-ins, customer birthdays add-on and periodic review reminders.

This free update is available via your WordPress plugin updates area to all current license holders. Let us know your thoughts / feedback in the comments!
