An entirely new look has been rolled out for the client view and the request builder
The client view is the same in functionality, but it has a new design that is cleaner and more modern. This helps critical information and buttons stand out.
When you view a request inside Content Snare, this is what we call "approval view". It's is similar to what the client sees, with the addition of buttons to approve or reject.
However there are some improvements. At the top you'll see an option to enable Compact View (screenshot below).
Compact View removes the whitespace between fields and disables the fade effects when scrolling. This makes the approval process faster.
While in Compact View, you'll also get the option to hide instructions & field requirements (image sizes etc)
Note that compact view is only available for you - this cannot be enabled for your clients.
The request builder has been designed to accommodate more options as we build new features.
We are planning to add conditional logic, required fields and more options. The old builder didn't have a place to accommodate these options.
Now, all options are found in a panel that pops out on the right hand side. Click the cog icon on a field or section to open up the options panel.
There are some more changes to come including section-level navigation on the left hand sidebar.
Let us know what you think!
Overnight we released another big update for Content Snare.
This update has a couple of major changes that should help improve your workflow.
The first is a new Kanban view. You can get there by clicking the Kanban icon at the top right of the requests dashboard.
This view will be handy if your requests go through some kind of workflow.
For example, if there are multiple people that need to approve each request, you could create columns that indicate which step of the approval process it's at.
You can add whatever columns you like, so the process is totally up to you.
Secondly, when you create a new request, the first thing you'll notice is the new template chooser.
We have rolled out loads of new templates including:
Any templates that you have created can be found under Custom Templates
Did you notice the new login / signup page? Looks pretty nice in our opinion!
This update doesn't look big on the surface, but under the hood there is a lot going on.
You might notice some cosmetic changes as we progressively roll out our new UI.
As usual, there were a few bug fixes. We appreciate each and every one of you who brings things to our attention, however small. We know every fix contributes to your overall experience.
There has also been a considerable speed increase. This is something we pride ourselves on. We want everything to be seamless and responsive when you're using Content Snare.
We're very close to the release of a new template system and a surprise.
When you're looking for help with Content Snare, it's no fun if you have to send us a message and wait for a reply.
Even though our response time is usually within 3 hours (we're super proud of Marina on support for getting this down to 3!), sometimes you might just want answers fast.
So we've launched a new self-service help area here.
There is a lot of stuff there already, but if you go searching and can't find what you need, let us know!
