Time Stamps for Products & Categories

Whenever you create a new product or category, Miva will create a time stamp for it. This way in the future, if you need to go back and look up products or categories that were entered on a specific day or time, it makes your search quick and easy!

Customer Time Stamp

The one difference between a time stamp for Customers vs. Categories and Products is that instead of Date Created and Last Updated, Customer Time Stamps are Date Created and Last Login. This will help helpful to search out customers that haven't been shopping for a while and you want to send them a quick reminder of new products that have arrived, or look up recently logged in customers and send them a thank you for visiting your store.
