Emoji Reactions ๐Ÿ™‚

Today, we have a big update to share: Emoji Reactions. They are a fun, low-effort means for users to engage on updates and for you to better understand what people think.

Why Emoji Reactions?

Getting people to actively participate is key to developing stronger relationships. Users who engage consume, on average, 4 times as much content compared to passive users. Converting more passive users to active participants means more time on site, direct traffic, and audience loyalty.

How is it working?

Emoji Reactions are available with the Business and Enterprise plans right now. When you create/edit a post, you have a new option to enable/disable reactions. Upon publications, users can share their feeling about your update in just one click. Statistics are aggregated over time and made visible per post in your dashboard to analyze performances:

Featured Images ๐Ÿ–ผ๏ธ

You wonder how to increase posts appeal and boost the number of times your posts are viewed? Here are post featured images. It is now possible to set a featured image to a post. Featured images are perfect to grab attention using enticing images.

Once set, a post featured image is used at different places: on your Timeline, Atom and RSS feeds but also as meta tags with Open Graph. When you share a post link on social media, its featured image is automatically used to create an appealing card.

New Zapier Trigger

by Laurent Pellegrino, Founder & CEO
New
Integrations

Recently, the second version of our Zapier integration has been released. It enables new use cases via additional triggers and actions. Especially, post creations and editions are handled through 2 different events. We know this may require some tedious configurations to handle both events the same way.

Weโ€™ve listened to your feedback and are happy to say that a new Zapier trigger called "Post Created or Updated" has been added. It allows triggering a Zap when a post is created or updated and the โ€œForward to integrationsโ€ is enabled for that post.

Available triggers, actions and templates are explained on the next page:

It is now possible to inject your own Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) in your project Timeline. You can even override Noticeableโ€™s predefined styles.

The option is available right now with the Enterprise plan. Simply open your project Timeline configuration page, then click on the new "Custom CSS" option from the side bar:

Below are some usage examples:

  • Increasing the font size:
body {
    font-size: 120%;
}
  • Adding a colorful banner on top of your Timeline:
body {
    border-top: 5px solid $project-accent-color;
}
  • Making labels monochrome:
 .label {
    background-color: #777 !important;
}

Custom Favicons

A favicon is a small graphic that appears to the left of the page title but also in bookmarks. Having an image related to your brand is for users a strong indicator that they came to the right place, which can be reassuring in a sense.

Furthermore, favicons save time to your users: when you look at a web page, your eyes notice an image before the text surrounding it.

Starting Today, we are happy to offer the possibility to set your own favicon per project Timeline. Existing projects have been updated to include a favicon based on their logo.

If your Timeline doesn't have a logo or favicon yet, be sure to upload one from your project configuration page.

Introducing Analytics ๐Ÿ“ˆ

by Laurent Pellegrino, Founder & CEO
New

Since last Monday, all projects are collecting metrics. This gives project owner and collaborators the opportunity to understand what posts are trendy.

The metrics which are collected for now are mainly about the number of views. You can get the total number of views per post or project but also detailed information such as the number of views generated from the Timeline, the Widget or even the number of times the Widget was clicked.

Analytics provided per post can be displayed using different time scales (hourly, daily, weekly, monthly).

We're extremely excited to see how this helps you, and we hope you'll share your experiences with us.

Share buttons ๐Ÿ”˜

by Laurent Pellegrino, Founder & CEO
New

When you open a post in your Timeline, share buttons are displayed by default on the left. Until now, only 2 were available: Twitter and Facebook. Today, we have added LinkedIn!

Following the recent data privacy scandal with Facebook, we are happy to provide a new option in your Timeline configuration page that allows selecting which share buttons must appear.

Embeddable Noticeable timelines ๐Ÿ“‹

by Laurent Pellegrino, Founder & CEO
New

Noticeable Timelines centralize your product updates. Today, we have deployed a new version of the app that allows embedding Timelines in your own pages.

Any Noticeable Timeline can be embedded into a full page of your website, rather than hosting it on a subdomain. For this purpose, we allow serving Timeline content from an iframe.

Below is a link to a Github repository that provides an example:

https://github.com/noticeableapp/noticeable-timeline-iframe

Timelines also support some options via Query string parameters:

ParameterValueDescription
cachefalseLoad content from Noticeable servers bypassing caching layers. This ensures data freshness at the cost of higher response times.
footerfalseHide the Timeline footer.
headerfalseHide the Timeline header.

For instance, here is the official Noticeable Timeline with header and footer hidden:
