The extension requires the following FREE special service extension be installed in order to function properly:  AW_All. Please make sure to install it BEFORE the main package. Read documentation.

Activity Stream extension introduces a popup that translates customers' store activity. The Activity Stream popup can be displayed in a number of pre-defined positions, or placed anywhere at the store using a widget. The popup can be adjusted for look and the number of activities displayed simultaneously. There are numerous customer activities that can be displayed in the block: customer registered, subscribed to newsletter, started watching particular product, etc.; store administrator has full control over what types of activities are displayed.

Activity Stream extension allows you to bring a fresh breath of reality to your store and let customers see what actions carry out on your website. This and that actions are taken every other minute at your store: new customers are registered, items are added to the shopping cart, new reviews are submitted, etc. But all these activities fall through the cracks for your visitors and they can’t even imagine what is going on right now at the store.

The Activity Stream module makes your customers feel that they are not alone on your website and shows activity streams like “Mike is viewing Electronics”, “John has logged in”, or “Annett has purchased HTC Touch Diamond”. The effectiveness of the extension is clear: visitors are influenced by activities of other people; they take the situation as a recommendation for further behavior and start experimenting and discovering your store.
