TrueSource enhancements

Important information for all TrueSource users: Update to GDSN Major Release 3.1 in May 2016

From Friday 20 May to Thursday 26 May the GDS Network will be offline, as all data pools across the globe – including TrueSource – are updated to support the new standard.

As a TrueSource user you will automatically receive the benefits of Major Release 3.1.

During the update process, TrueSource, along with all other data pools, will be offline. Once the update is complete you can resume using the service.

  • The look and feel and the user interface will be the same as you use now, but you will notice some new attribute names and descriptions. Any data you have previously coded will still be available in TrueSource, but in some instances they will have a new attribute name assigned to match the latest standards
  • Trading partners who you have previously published data to will be unaffected, as they already have your previous data publications

Following the update, your trading partners will be in contact with you directly if they have any changes to their data requirements.

And of course, our dedicated team are here to answer any questions and support you when you next need to update an item and publish via TrueSource.
