    Autofill a cart from the dashboard! Roll back to previous cart versions!

    Two really awesome quality-of-life updates here.

    1. Ability to autofill a cart from the dashboard. Now, when texting or emailing a client, you can automatically autofill an invoice or cart on their behalf straight from the dashboard. You can choose to autofill according to package rules or even from the customer's previous order. This makes managing one-off orders or people who need extra help even easier.
    2. Ability to rollback to a prior cart version. In Bottle, we always store every version of every cart. So you can see what customers added/changed in their cart and what the autofill system added/changed in their cart. And now, you can rollback to a previous version of the cart. Just scroll down to the Order's version history, choose the cart version you want to rollback to, and click "Rollback." That easy.

    Hopefully these changes make it even easier to handle customer changes and requests straight from your dashboard. Both of these changes also work whether or not an order is paid for. If it's an unpaid cart, it will update all the order totals so the customer will pay you the right amount. If it's an already-paid-for-paid, it will show you the new total but not automatically bill the customer the difference.

    This is so you can be sure your report for production is perfect, and handle money collection or refunds however you best see fit.

    Now dietary labels are always visible

    We've always shown dietary labels for products when descriptions were revealed, but now we've updated the selection screen to always show dietary labels, even if the product is collapsed.

    This makes navigating the menu much easier for people always on the lookout for certain dietary preferences like "Vegan", "Keto", "Gluten Free", etc., in their meals.

    New package superpowers: automatic variant selection

    Packages got a huge new superpower: the ability to automatically select variants on a product based on the package. This allows you to construct menus around specific diets, specific meal sizes, and other variants where you always want a certain variant selected based on the customer's package.

    Additionally, there's now an option to hide a variant selection from a customer when they're editing their cart. This is so you can attach variants for your production and pricing needs based on the customer's package - such as automatically setting all meals to "Large" if the customer is on a Large package - but not give the customer the ability to mix and match their meals.

    This is a big deal for merchants who want to offer all-or-nothing variants, such as all meals have to be Large vs. Small, or all meals have to be Vegetarian. And it's also helpful if the customer just wants to make sure they're always defaulted into Gluten Free, Keto, or whatever other options they set as a default.

    1. A map view of all pickup locations, with pins that can be selected.
    2. Visual dates to see when pickup is available at specific locations.
    3. The ability to hide and show future dates based on availability.
