Noticeable Updates

GraphQL API updates ✏️

by Laurent Pellegrino, Founder & CEO
Enhancement

We have updated our API to support posts edition and deletion.

Please have a look at the API overview page for explanations about how to consume the API (authentication required).

We also took the opportunity to create a public repository that provides samples for the most common operations. If you need help with integration, do not hesitate to drop us a message πŸ™‹

Last but not least, our GraphQL schema is now documented.

Filtering posts πŸ”

by Laurent Pellegrino, Founder & CEO
Enhancement

Do you have a lot of posts? are you managing posts with different labels? do you want to display draft posts only? segmented posts?

Today, we have deployed a new version of the service that allows filtering posts in your projects dashboard per status (draft, published, scheduled, segmented) and labels. Both filtering criteria can also be combined to perform fine grain filtering.

Posts filtering

We want to make Noticeable work for you, and therefore your feedback is important to us. Feel free to contribute to our public roadmap with new ideas πŸ’‘

Help center πŸ’

by Laurent Pellegrino, Founder & CEO
Announcement

We are proud to announce the availability of our new Help Center. This last centralizes the most frequent questions we receive but also share tips and discuss advanced features. You can search by keywords and leave reactions. The content will expand with time.

If you have questions or need help, you can also reach us by chat on our pages or by email.

Customizing Job title per project

by Laurent Pellegrino, Founder & CEO
Enhancement

A new version of the service has been deployed. It allows configuring your Job title per project. It is particularly useful in a multi language context where a project per language is used.

How to proceed

  1. Go to your account page.
  2. Tap on the toothed wheel on the right side of the Job title field.
  3. Configure your Job title per project.
  4. Click on Save changes.

If you leave a field empty, your default Job title will be used.

Existing posts aren't updated with Job title updates. Only new posts reflect the changes. If you want to update the Job title associated with an existing post, simply edit the post and save it again.

Zapier-Noticeable Integration ⚑

by Laurent Pellegrino, Founder & CEO
Announcement

We're thrilled to announce that our Zapier Integration is now live.

Zapier is all about making your life easier through automation. It automates the connection between your Noticeable projects and the apps and services you already use to run your business or manage your audience. That means you don’t have to do as much of the heavy lifting.

If you want to automatically add Timeline subscribers to an email list or instantly post your Noticeable posts on social media, Zapier makes it happen πŸ™Œ

Automations are set up with Zaps. A Zap is made of a Trigger and Actions. For instance, when a new post is published in Noticeable (Trigger) then a new Tweet is automatically published with a link to the post (Action).

Zapier works with over 1,000 different connected applications, meaning that you can create and customize a huge range of automations to your heart's content. What's even more awesome is that no code is required!

Here are a few of the most popular Noticeable-Zapier automation templates you can set up right now:

This new Zapier integration works with any Noticeable plan, and you can find a list of the most popular Zap Templates from the Integrations section of any Noticeable project. Please note Zapier offers free accounts with a few automations included, and paid plans with more advanced functionality.

If you need help, we remain available at hello@noticeable.io.

Links open in a new tab πŸ”—

by Laurent Pellegrino, Founder & CEO
Enhancement

We have deployed a small but convenient improvement for links. From now on, links put in new posts will open by default in a new Tab (target is set to _blank). For performance and security reasons, the attribute rel="noopener" is automatically set.

Additionnally, HTML markup is now allowed in post content. This allows, when needed, a fine grain control over attributes used with links:

<a href="https://noticeable.io" title="Noticeable" rel="noreferrer" target="noticeable">Noticeable</a>

The changes apply to your Widget and Timeline but also with the Markdown editor on live preview.

New plans and prices πŸ’΅

by Laurent Pellegrino, Founder & CEO
Announcement

Introducing a plan for indie hackers was a frequent request we received these last days. Since we are continuously listening to feedback from our visitors and customers, we are happy to introduce a new Starter plan!

We also took the opportunity to adjust existing plans thanks to optimizations we made. In addition, we support customized plans: you can request additional projects, collaborators and API calls for any plans at a fixed price per month or year. If you are interested, please drop us an email.

User experience enhancements

by Laurent Pellegrino, Founder & CEO
Enhancement

The public launch was crazy. We thank all people who use the service. Especially, users who took the time to report issues they experienced. We spent the last days enhancing the user experience based on your feedback:

  • The pages are loading faster.
  • A spinner is displayed on lazily loaded pages.
  • Markdown code for images is inserted at the cursor position.
  • Publication date and time on Timelines is based on users' timezone.
  • Improved onboarding:
    • After creating a project, users are redirected to widget installation instructions.
    • Marking widget installation as done redirects to the list of posts.

Note: It was discovered the LastPass extension is preventing pages to render properly. We've reported the issue to the LastPass team. In the meantime, please disable the extension on our pages for a smooth experience.

Public launch πŸš€

by Laurent Pellegrino
Announcement

After spending the past months collecting requirements and implementing our Minimum Viable Product in private beta, we finally launched!

Noticeable Public Launch

You may wonder what's the purpose of the Noticeable service?

Most companies, especially in the IT world, are agile. They make updates and ship new features continuously or on a regular basis. However, customers may often have the feeling that nothing happens or updates may take weeks to reach the right audience.

Noticeable aims to provide a tool suite to make product updates visible. The purpose is to improve customer retention and get new leads by trading transparency for faster insights.

The service includes 3 key components: a smart widget, a timeline and an integration with hundreds of apps via Zapier. The smart widget allows displaying the latest changes at the right time and in the right context: your service web page. The timeline centralizes all updates and permits subscriptions. Integrations simplify the forwarding of your updates to multiple platforms at once.
