A quick post to let you know that the intranet option was just updated with support for an extra level to manage members: companies.
This new hierarchical level let you consolidate user data by company, which is useful for example for b2b e-commerce websites where the same customer can have multiple users ordering from your website. By grouping those users within the same company, you can review the orders placed for the compamy, regardless of which user placed it.
Creating and managing companies is done from the "Users" tab. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions about this update.

We just deployed the ability to display product index pages that are filtered over multiple categories. This feature is of special interest for e-commerce websites with many products and categories.
