    Default Where: Admin - Order Status notification behavior for an Order Status update

    Admin - Order Status notification behavior for an Order Status update (send email/do not send email/hide update) may now be configured by an admin switch.

    I assume that means that the pre-selected Notify Customer box can now be set to NO_EMAIL without having to futz with editing files.

    Where is a person to find these new features which have been added? I'm too old for Easter Egg hunts of new undocumented features.

    I looked ADMIN > Localization > Order Status which seemed to be an obvious place to find the switch.

    What does this mean? Product quantities must be integer? I sure hope NOT.

    Admin - Validation for integer min and max values and email addresses.

    When you're on the Admin > Orders page, there's a help icon (?) in the upper right. Click it.
    In the upper right, there's a search box with the text "Search this site". In there, type "Notify Customer"
    (the setting you want to change).

    It will take you to the help file for the Admin > Configuration > My Store page, which contains the setting for the default value of this field.

    The help is heavily indexed and should be easily searchable. If there's a topic you think is missing, report it here on the forum.

    OK, so you were looking at the new features list in 1.5.7

    https://www.zen-cart.com/docs/whatsnew_1.5.7.html

    and you saw that one of the new features was

    Admin - Validation for integer min and max values and email addresses.

    What this means is that the screen Admin > Configuration > Minimum Values (and the corresponding Maximum Values screen) validate their inputs instead of blindly accepting them.

    WOW... TNX. There's quite a bit of good information once/if a person starts rooting around.

    Don't know how I missed that big blue question mark.

    It's a brand new feature - it will require some marketing. :)
