Last week we asked everyone on our team to list out things they thought could be improved in our UI. Then we selected and prioritized those issues.
You'll notice a few significant changes over the next few months as a result of this.
For this update we've just rolled out some more minor things.
The most obvious is the template selection screen. It's laid out a bit more clearly now. You'll find your custom templates at the top, followed by our built in ones.
Other small fixes include the ordering of menu items for consistency across different pages, adding separators in some menus and a bunch of visual bug fixes.
Last update introduced a new experience for creating requests.
In this one we've rolled in some of your feedback and new optimizations.
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.
Over the weekend, a large upgrade to Content Snare was completed.
This vastly improves performance of Content Snare, virtually eliminates any delay in sending emails to clients and allows faster development of features.
The next two feature releases should include a new Zapier integration and the ability to include a "request owner" for each request. More on this soon!
This is a small release. In the background, we are working on and testing our first integration. It's with Zapier. When this is ready, you'll be able to automate all kinds of workflows with Content Snare, so stay tuned!
