New Order Notifier for VirtueMart is a Joomla plugin that extends the administration of VirtueMart in order the administrator to be notified / alarmed with sound and visual marks when a new order is arrived. This plugin adds the following features to the “Orders” page in the administration of VirtueMart:
★ It refreshes the page periodically.
★ It highlights the new orders in “pending” state.
★ It plays a sound when there is at least one new order in “pending” state.
This tool is especially useful to eshops which must deliver the orders as soon as possible (like fast foods) or to eshops where the owner is long time away from the pc (like warehouses). The only thing you have to do is to let your pc showing the “Orders” page in VirtueMart administration and you will be able, being away from the pc, either to hear a sound or to see the colored lines, or both, when a new order is arrived.
The user is able to a) set the state of the order to be considered as just arrived, b) set the time interval till the next refresh of the page, c) set if and which color the new orders will be marked with, d) set if and which sound will be used as alarm.
