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
A large update to Content Snare just went live!
Here's what's new:
Over the weekend a huge Content Snare update rolled out.
These will help streamline your workflow even more. Collect content & documents from clients more easily and faster than ever!
Check out the full post here or see the updates in action in this video.
Plus there are loads of small design & usability improvements.
Content Snare just got a huge update! There are only 2 main things you need to know.
It’s the result of over 12 months of listening to your feedback and completely re-engineering the platform. It's taken a long time, but sometimes good things are worth the wait.
Our number one priority is to make YOUR clients' lives easier. If they love interacting with Content Snare, you’ll get great content from them. Win-win.
Version 2 completely overhauls the user interface for your clients. Initial feedback has been mind-blowing, and we're confident that your clients will love it.
It's more than a visual upgrade though. We’ve vastly improved stability and speed, while also enhancing existing features and adding in some new ones. New features and improvements are listed at the end of this email.
Because of the flexibility of version 2, we can now implement new features and enhance existing ones at a rate that previously wasn't possible.
So we need to hear about what is most important for your clients, and for you to make the most out of Content Snare. Just email us at email@example.com or use the in-app chat
As you're by now aware, version 2 of Content Snare has been a long time coming!
We may have bitten off a bit more than we could chew, hence why it's taken a lot longer than expected. But this version will bring some serious performance improvements and an overhauled UI.
The 3-minute video below runs through some of the major changes so you can see what to expect.
