SalesCast Connector allows you to automate the data feed generation and the file upload into your Salescast account from your Magento 2 back office. This package includes Data Feed Manager and Orders Export Tool in a special edition.
The web application Salescast optimizes your inventory levels by using data on your business activity, current stock levels, and open orders. It is therefore important to send a daily.TSV file with this data to the Lokad service platform.
Salescast Connector completely automates the uploading of the data to the Lokad service platform. It works in conjunction with both the Data Feed Manager and the Orders Export Tool components.
Salescast Connector also allows the Leadtime and Servicelevel variables to be defined and adjusted for an individual product or for the entire product catalog.
The web app Salescast delivers two key data for your inventory optimization:
to know when to order
to know how much to order
The quantities suggested by Salescast rely on advanced statistics as delivered by the Lokad forecasting technology. Salescast saves you money with fewer stocks and fewer stock-outs; but also Salescast saves you time when reordering to your suppliers.
Open a Salescast account
Salescast comes with an Express subscription free of any charge up to 10,000 products. The Salescast Connector lets you take advantage of this offer from your Magento 2 back office.
Note that you will need your email/password to set up the "Salescast Connector".

Configure Salescast Connector
Salescast Connector allows two key variables, Leadtime and Servicelevel, to be defined and adjusted to maximize the efficiency of Salescast. These variables can be defined and adjusted for an individual product or for the entire product catalog.
For more information about the two variables, please have a look at the Lokad reference documents:
A license is valid for an unlimited period of time on one single installation
If you're using more than one installation, you will have to buy a separate license for each instance.
if you're running several domains on a same installation, you will need only one license for all of them.
Although your license doesn’t have a limited period of validity, your Support & Upgrade period does. By purchasing a module, you’ll be granted a 12-month support period for free. Passed this period, you will have to pay for a new one (see FAQ: Extend your Support period)
One license is valid for an unlimited period of time on oneinstallation only. However, it is possible to extend or transfer your license in 2 cases:
If you would like to add your testing environments to your license. In that case, it is possible to extend your license to an unlimited number of domains for free. For mywebsite-staging.com or mywebsite-dev.com
If you want to transfer your license to another live domain. In that case, the Support & Upgrade period for your license must still be active.
To be able to use Salescast Connector on both your production and testing environments, follow the instructions below:
Once Salescast Connector is installed, you have to activate the license. For previous versions, you can activate the license from your back-office:
Go to your Magento admin panel. A message pops up at the top of the page.
If the message doesn't appear then you must check that:
1. The Adminhtml_Notifications and Wyomind_Core modules are well enabled. 2. The HTML output of the Adminhtml_Notifications and Wyomind_Core modules are not disabled in: storesconfigurationadvanced advanced 3. The encryption key well exists in app/etc/env.php:
Copy your activation key in: StoresConfigurationWyomind Your extension
You can find your activation key in 2 different places: - In the confirmation email that you received after purchasing Salescast Connector. - In your Wyomind account:My account Licenses & downloads Select Salescast Connector and click on .
A new page opens where you'll find your activation key (see below).
In your Magento admin go to: StoresConfigurationWyomind Your extension
Paste the activation key in the Activation Key field and choose between the automatic (yes) or the manual (no) activation method: - By choosing Yes, the connection to Wyomind license server will be automatic. - By choosing No, you will have to log on to Wyomind license server yourself.
Click on Save config .
A message appears at the top of your admin panel. Click on that link: Activate it now!
Copy and paste the license code in theLicense code field from your admin or simply click on Activate now!
Finally, refresh your cache, log out and log in back straight after, to complete the installation.
When the extension includes other modules, repeat the steps described above for each one, using the corresponding activation keys (each module has its own activation key).
Add another domain to your license
To activate the license on another domain (test, staging...):
Once the extension is installed on the new domain, copy your activation key in: StoresConfigurationWyomind Your extension
After having saved the configuration, a notification appears. Click on Add this domain to my license.
A transfer request will then be sent to our team within an hour. Once the request is taken care of, you will receive a confirmation email. If your transfer request is accepted, you can use Salescast Connector on both environments at the same time.
Note that the order in which you activate your license on your domains does not matter. You can start with your staging/dev/local environment or with your live domain, the process will be the same.
Also, if you have loads of staging domains, or if you are an agency managing load of domains for your customers, please contact us so that we can automatically whitelist these domains.
We use both modules included in salescast connector everyday, whilst we no longer use Lokad we have repurposed both modules to help us with our daily tasks, never been an issue and allowed use to customise our feed in house even with complex business logic, data feed module is the most flexable feed module available and even allows inline php functions. Great module bundle!

Used on Magento 1
We have used this module on magento 1 and it proved useful, as we have upgraded to magneto 2 we have purchased again. Never really had a problem and hope the same this time.
