A quick look back at 2021

So long, 2021! It was marked by productivity and growth. If we had to sum this year up in a few words, here’s what we’d say: more features, better user experiences, and even more success stories.

Here are some of the most important highlights of the year 🎉:

  • New Dashboard

    Last year, our dashboard took a step forward with a more intuitive, fresh, and easier-to-navigate interface. We also released analytics, developed a rich text editor, a live widget editor, added support for Call-To-Actions (CTA), implemented notification preferences, and many other customization options.

  • New Widgets and JavaScript SDK

    In 2021, we released a new version of the popup widget but also new modal and top-banner widgets. More layouts for more use cases and better product updates placement.

    Additionally, we also added support for code injection in widgets and the new JavaScript SDK makes use of the standard Web platform with a concise API that enables events support and cross-device synchronization.

  • Single Sign-On (SSO)

    Early last year we launched support for SSO. Our implementation supports OIDC and SAML industry-standard protocols. SSO reduces chances of hacks by only requiring one set of credentials and only logging each user in once per day. We also created an integration to appear in the Okta catalog for easier usage.

  • Improved Newspages

    2021 was also the opportunity to bring several enhancements and features to Newspages. This includes support for private Newspages to restrict accesses with a shared secret or by IP addresses, but also Right-to-left (RTL) support with Newspages and Widgets.

And many other amazing features!

Thank you!

This year Noticeable helped more businesses around the globe to engage and keep their users updated. Among them are Airfair, Checkout, Firstbase, Huggy, IBM, Lytx, Nylas, Picdrop, Pipplet, Synthesia, Testlodge, and more.

For the sake of every user, we’re committed to making Noticeable the best changelog as a service but we couldn’t do it without your support. Your feedback and suggestions were a valuable resource for the improvements we made in 2021, and they will continue to drive our roadmap this year.

We’d love to continue hearing from you in 2022! If you want to say a quick hello or drop a few suggestions, drop a line below, send us a message on Twitter or by email.

From the whole team at Noticeable, we want to wish you a great year ahead!

Updates for December 14, 2021

by Laurent Pellegrino, Founder and CEO
Enhancement
  • The option to duplicate a publication has been improved to enable the creation of a copy in the project of your choice:

  • User feedback messages displayed in the dashboard are now formatted with line breaks appropriately.

Updates for October 13, 2021

by Laurent Pellegrino, Founder and CEO
Enhancement
  • Widgets are up to 50% faster to load and render. Although Noticeable widgets were already amazingly fast and lightweight components, we made improvements by serving content from Cloudflare CDN (with HTTP3) and upgrading the Lit library we are using to its new major 2.0 version.

  • New customization options are available with the modal and popup widgets: you can set a custom background color and select whether the publication author must be displayed or not.

  • Upon background color change, the color of the text and some other user interface elements automatically adapt to meet color contrast standards.

Modal Widget

New
Widgets
Modal Widget

We did it! You now have access to a whole new type of widget: the modal one.

Using a modal widget, you can announce your product changes or deals in front of your users. In contrary to the popup or top banner widget, full publications content is displayed when the widget is opened.

As a trigger to open a modal widget you can select among the ones we already propose with other widgets: custom, floating button, icon, text + badge, or none.

If you prefer to use no triggers and automatically open a modal widget when you publish a new publication, that’s possible. To do so, while editing a publication on step 2, “Options”, enable the switch option “Automatically open widgets when the publication is new”:

Updates for September 15, 2021

by Laurent Pellegrino, Founder and CEO
Enhancement
  • When you create a new project label with a name that includes non-Latin characters, the slug that is generated is automatically transliterated to make it valid.

  • Fixed a recurring bug preventing customers on the Growth plan to create a publication through Zapier with an empty list of segments.

Updates for August 24, 2021

by Laurent Pellegrino, Founder and CEO
New
Enhancement
  • We’ve added a new option to set a link on the title of a top-banner widget (in addition to or replacement of a CTA button). When enabled, you can either redirect to the publication on your Newspage or the URL of your choice:

  • When defining a custom URL (for instance in a CTA button while configuring your publication on step 2 Options, or with the title link of your top-banner), you can now use the placeholder {publication_slug} inside your URL to create a dynamic redirection. The placeholder is automatically replaced by its corresponding value when the URL is created.

  • The live widget editor on the Noticeable dashboard now includes a dark mode to better visualize your widgets when using light colors:

  • The top-banner vertical padding set on mobile devices has been decreased to improve the aesthetic.

  • An issue preventing the Newpage embed widget to load on mobile devices has been fixed.

Updates for August 13, 2021

by Laurent Pellegrino, Founder and CEO
Enhancement
  • The widget setup page has been reworked to mention useful resources, including new links for integration examples with Angular, Lit, React, and Vue.

  • A sizing and positioning issue has been fixed with the Icon trigger widget. You can still adjust the vertical positioning using for instance a negative CSS margin-top but this will no longer be required in most cases.

  • Iframes created and injected by the Noticeable SDK now include a title to prevent a warning with Lighthouse inspection.

  • We’ve fixed an issue preventing the publication date and time to display on Newspages for newly created projects.

  • The input color picker used in many places on the dashboard was not always behaving as expected. This is now fixed.

Updates for July 13, 2021

by Laurent Pellegrino, Founder and CEO
Enhancement
  • A bug that was preventing the deletion of the last segment value associated with a publication has been fixed.

  • Date and time on Widgets are now localized using the project language that is configured, similarly to Newspages.

  • New settings have been introduced in the dashboard for Newspages and Widgets to control the date and time format for publications displayed individually or in a list:


  • Options named Absolute and Relative to control publication time format from the Noticeable dashboard have been rename respectively to Custom pattern and Distance to now.

  • Publication state icons that appear on the publications overview page to quickly identify whether a publication is expired or scheduled are now displayed when the publication is published only (i.e. not a draft).

  • Publication labels on Widgets were sometimes not updated after a project label edition due to a cache invalidation issue. This is now fixed.

  • The maximum number of characters you can input as publication content has been doubled.
