Design updates, more speed and bug fixes

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.

Large performance upgrade

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!

Usability improvements and bug fixes

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!

Important Note

  • This version removes the "Legacy View" mode from old requests. This only applies to requests created before November last year. And requests created after that are unaffected. 

Improvements

  • Updated notification system to better differentiate between error and information notifications, to allow multiple notifications and to not block toolbar back button
  • Adding numbering to pages in the left-hand navigation
  • You can now export requests directly from the request dashboard
  • Reduced size of the app to improve loading times between pages
  • Improved support for legacy browsers like IE11

Several other bugs were also addressed.
