Today’s release is v1.15.0 of Affiliate Stats Tracker.
This release contains new features, bug fixes, and some added affiliate programs.
- Counter animations
This is a visual change to the way numbers are displayed. As your statistics are fetched, or you change time periods or views, the numbers displayed will now animate between the old value and the new value. Very snazzy.
- Adding an affiliate program – improved search
As more and more affiliate programs are added to Affiliate Stats Tracker, the initial selection list when adding a new program is becoming larger and larger. I think an even better solution to this problem needs to be found, but for now, the drop down box now acts as a search field. You can therefore start typing to find your program, rather than having to scroll through the list.
- Informational Fields and Tooltips added
Initial feedback has been that some data fields and columns may not be immediately obvious. Some tooltips have been added to give more information when hovering over columns and fields. More will be added, but specifically the ones I have been asked about have been directly addressed.
- Affiliate Program Breakdown Display
When viewing an affiliate program breakdown with years of statistical history, the default view of showing every individual day was clunky. Now, depending on how many days of historical statistics you have will depend on which view you see. If over two years, you see year view. If over one year, you see month view. If over 100 days, you see week view. Or, you see the day view. The ability to change between views is still there, this only impacts initial view.
- Last program update time
This now always displays the last time the stats were checked, rather than the time the stat check was initiated at. What does this mean? It means if you have just added a new affiliate program and there are hundreds or thousands of statistics to collect, the Last Updated timer won’t show the time when the initial request to collect all the stats was made, but rather the time of the last successfully retrieved statistic.
- Stat request in progress spinner
If you had thousands of stats downloading (e.g. on initially adding a new affiliate program), the display could be a little… meh. This has now been fixed, so everything displays nicely in one line.
New Affiliate Programs:
- Dream Cash (Adult)
- Sapphix (Adult)
This release also contains bug fixes for most Amazon Associates stats collection.
The current features I am working on are:
- Backup and restore – been requested multiple times, so will look to get this added. This will not backup your passwords for security reasons, but will back up everything else.
- Notifications on new sales – that’s the best part of being an affiliate, isn’t it? Making fat stacks of passive (yeah, right) moolah. Well, it would be nice to get a notification when new sales are made.
As always, you can download the latest release here.
