Chatbots are a great new way to engage with clients. A chatbot allows for a more "conversational" style of interaction as opposed to the traditional "transactional" way of interacting with web applications. A well-designed conversation experience can keep users hooked and increase the time spent with your applications. In this blog, we write about how we used FlowXO to create a quizzing bot for Shika
For the past couple of months, we have released couple of blogs on some of our infrastructure extensions like TJ vendor and TJ notifications and we thank you for the feedback. We are happy to introduce yet another infrastructure extension-Hierarchy Management.
Hierarchy Management is an horizontal(Infrastructure) extension for Joomla that allows setting up general or context specific hierarchical relations between users which can be further be used by other extensions for a variety of purposes like allowing special access control, reports generation and so on. Hierarchy is currently supported out of the box by TJ Reports for manager reporting and JLike for assignments. Read on for the features.
We are super excited to introduce TJ Reports - our Infrastructure extension that allows developers to easily develop reporting plugins and get extensive reporting capabilities in their extensions. Features include extension specific and multi extension reports, Report default configuration, Report customisation and CSV exports to name a few.
Let’s look at the features it offers in detail as well as how the integration with extensions works. Continue reading for the feature list.
Over the years we have received numerous requests to create a 'real manager’ or a way to edit system email notifications. We decided to go one step further. Enter TJ Notifications, our next 'horizontal’ or 'infrastructure’ extension.
This extension will eventually allow all our products and any other products who integrate it to centrally manage all notifications in your Joomla site. While we will start with emails, eventually we shall be adding support for SMS/Text notifications, Web Push (browser notifications) as well as native site notifications.
You might have wondered at our blogs being a little silent. Well a lot has been happening behind the scenes. In the past several months our teams have been working on a host of ‘Infrastructure’ extensions that will add immense value and decrease development time for our extensions as well as custom projects.
Infrastructure extensions are like Joomla’s core com_categories. Other extensions can use it without having to recreate the wheel. The below diagram should give you just a little bit of an idea as to what all is coming !
In this blog we shall be talking about one such extension - TJ Vendor. Techjoomla today already has several extensions like Quick2Cart, JGive, JTicketing that support a multi vendor mode. Soon Shika will have the same functionality. The core of the multi vendor system that supports Vendor Management, Fees management, Payouts to name a few have been abstracted into a reusable extension.
