New Google Merchant Center Diagnostics Interface // Changes in Severity?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

In the most recent changes to the Diagnostics View, it appears Merchant Center has removed the 'suggestion' severity level for item issues. 


For Example:

Old UI: 

Title: Missing Microdata for Condition

Severity Level: Suggestion


New UI: 

Title: Missing or invalid data [condition]

Severity Level: Warning



Are item issues at the 'Suggestion' Severity level gone forever? Is this a bug? Is this implying a change in how Google is looking at certain issues? 


The Google Shopping Content API is still currently outputting these issues as a severity level of "Suggestion".


Appreciate the clarification

In the new diagnostics UI, the severity level is warning for missing or invalid data[condition].


Maybe your account is not yet updated. Or my account is not updated.


Regardless of the severity, I recommend you fix all issues.


Hope this helps.
