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

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).

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!

Segmented posts on Timeline pages

by Laurent Pellegrino, Founder & CEO
New

You can now display segmented posts on your project Timelines.

Segmentation is a powerful mechanism to display posts to a given set of users based on your own conditions. Although segmentation is configurable with our Plug & Play Widget, by default Noticeable Timelines are not displaying segmented posts.

We are listening to you and starting Today, you can force a segmented posts (i.e. posts that define segments) to display on your project Timeline by adding the special segment Noticeable:Timeline to its list of segments.

Learn more in our help center.

Zoomable Images

by Laurent Pellegrino, Founder & CEO
Enhancement
Zoomable Images

Adding images is crucial to make your product updates more appealing. By default, published images are automatically sized for the container that displays your product update (e.g. Widget or Timeline).

Although automatic shrinking is a visual requirement, this may be an issue when you want to draw special attention to details on an image. For this reason, weโ€™ve made published images automatically zoomable when their natural size is larger than their container.
