Updates for April 22, 2021 ๐Ÿ›

by Laurent Pellegrino, Founder and CEO
Enhancement

Dashboard

  • Editing a publication for adding a link was not triggering a save upon click to โ€œContinueโ€.

  • Updating a draft publication title is now updating its slug. Previously, you had to update the publication slug manually after a title change, even if the publication was not yet published.

  • Fixed an issue preventing the Noticeable Embed Widget to show in the preview editor when a custom selector was defined.

  • Fixed a line wrapping issue with very long publication titles displayed on the publication list.

  • Fixed subscribers search input field not working on Firefox.

  • Fixed an issue that was erasing publication content upon saving when images with data URLs were included. An error message is now displayed in the editor and saving works properly.

  • Fixed concurrent edition warning box not disappearing upon conflict resolution.

Widgets

  • Uniformized Call-To-Action (CTA) button style to be the same as the one used with Newspages.

  • Fixed an issue preventing Noticeable Widgets to load on pages with custom Content-Security-Policy (CSP).

Introducing Call-to-Action ๐Ÿ–ฑ๏ธ

New
Introducing Call-to-Action ๐Ÿ–ฑ๏ธ

Did you ever expect your users or customers to act right away following an update you shared? Adding a Call-to-Action (CTA) is a means to grab attention and directing people to the next step.

For each publication you publish on Noticeable you can configure a CTA that is displayed as a button along with your publication content on Newspages and Widgets.

What's the advantage of using a CTA button over a link? CTA buttons are more prominent and analytics are collected for each click, thus allowing you to see how your actions behave, but also measuring success with a click-through rate.

How to define a Call-to-Action?

  1. Create or edit a publication.

  2. On step 2, select the Call-to-Action (CTA) settings group.

  3. Enter a label and an URL.

Private Newspages ๐Ÿ”’

Weโ€™ve introduced new options to change the visibility of your projectโ€™s Newspages. You can now restrict access to Newspages by requesting a password, thus making them private.

Private Newspages is a great way to keep content internal to your team or share project updates with a restricted audience.

How to change a Newspage visibility?

  1. Open the Noticeable dashboard.

  2. Click to Newspage on the left menu.

  3. Select the Visibility settings group at the bottom of the page.

  4. Configure the options as needed:

The feature is available with the Business plan. As part of the Enterprise plan, we also support filtering accesses by IP addresses and CIDR ranges. You can also require authentication via a header token.

Rich Text Editor โœ๏ธ

New
Rich Text Editor โœ๏ธ

Whatโ€™s better than Markdown to format publications? a rich text editor!

The Noticeable dashboard is now including a rich text editor. Formatting and customizing the appearance of your publications is now simpler than ever.

You can include images, videos, format titles using different levels, put text in bold, italic, underline or even strike. Quotes are also supported along with lists, code snippets, tables, and dividers.

To apply formatting or actions, you can use the visual toolbar, shortcuts (e.g. CTRL+B to set your current selection in bold), or the Markdown syntax! Indeed, for backward compatibility but also because some of you love Markdown, we still support the syntax as you type.

There is another tip we would like to share. When writing your publication, the content is saved as soon as the editor loses focus or you click on Continue. However, it is also possible to trigger a save by pressing CTRL+S.

What about content published through the GraphQL API or Zapier? in this context, you donโ€™t have a rich text editor. As a consequence, you can either use plaintext or the Markdown syntax.

PS: some of you asked, the editor is built on top of ProseMirror, a great open-source toolkit for building rich text editors (we contributed ESM support).

Noticeable V2 is out ๐ŸŽ‰

by Laurent Pellegrino, Founder and CEO
Announcement
Noticeable V2 is out ๐ŸŽ‰

After several months of hard work, we are proud to introduce a whole new Noticeable!

Itโ€™s hard to enumerate all the changes in a single publication. They go from a refreshed logo to a new dashboard with an improved user interface, advanced analytics, new widgets that are fully configurable through a live editor, an easy to use JavaScript SDK to interact with the Noticeable widgets, and many new features including a WYSIWYG editor, pinned publications, private Newspages, and more. Besides, this does not include all the changes we made internally to move the service to the next level.

There is so much to say that we will introduce important changes in dedicated publications in the coming days. In the meantime, here are a few changes you should be aware of:

  • Timeline pages are now called Newspages.

  • Posts are now referred to as Publications.

  • Newspages are now served from the domain noticeable.news for users on the free plan.

  • Custom domains are no longer served and verified by Firebase. This enables faster SSL certificate generation and easier maintenance.

  • A new widget has been introduced and the legacy widget has been deprecated. You will receive an email with upgrade instructions by the end of the month.

We hope you will like what we made. As always, your comments are welcome. You can react below. ๐Ÿ‘‡

Widget Cross-device Synchronization

by Laurent Pellegrino, Founder & CEO
New

We are happy to introduce a new feature for the Noticeable widget: cross-device synchronization.

By using cross-device synchronization, users identified using our SDK will have Widget read states maintained between devices: when they switch for instance from their mobile to a laptop. This new feature is available as part of the Business plan. You can read more about how to enable the feature in our help center:

https://help.noticeable.io/en-us/article/widget-cross-device-synchronization-1m7jpkm/

PS: as you may know, we are working on a lot of new things, surprises and good news are coming!
