Sharing is caring - now in video!

Ewa Grabowiecka

We have been improving the platform with new features like video sharing, streamlined group management, and a smarter way to find what you need. Plus, we've made everything faster. Curious? Dive into the details and see how we're building new tools for the best community management platform.

Uh oh, the last builder was all the way in April - but was it because we were all recovering from a chocolate-triggered hibernation? Well, it was the opposite - the spring and summer sun has energised us so much, that we have been fully immersed in working on big features for the platform.

The first biggie  - video and voice!

For our premium users, we have added the ability to add videos onto the platform. Whether you want to share your best tips (you can grate your tomatoes for a better tomato sauce fyi), tell a fantastic story or inspire your audience with a call to action, you can do so directly on our platform.

To enable this feature for yourself or a specific group, please get in touch here.

Additionally, If you are more of a voice note or a podcast lover, you can upload directly onto our platform.  This is available to everyone, free and premium users.

The second biggie  - better group management

We know that keeping your community healthy is one of our users' top priorities - and as a first step for our aid, we have created a dedicated admin space.

If you are an admin of a group, you will see it on your group’s tabs.  In there, you will see the usual settings with the addition of new sections called analytics and integrations. We have pulled features from all over the platform and placed them into one coherent space so it is easier than ever to find and improve your group.

This is only the beginning, and we will be adding more features regarding community safety and reporting of content so keep your eyes and ears peeled for the updates. And if you are keen to get involved in the development of the platform, let us know what security features you would like to see here.

The third biggie - resources

We have had some feedback about the resource tabs which we were able to address - resources were hard to find, especially in groups which were providing educational content, and had a vast number of assets.

We have changed the look of the sections within the Resource tab so that the sections are more distinct from each other.

You can also type to search for the appropriate resource - no more endless scrolls to find your homework.

On top of that, every section displays how many resources it holds, and it is collapsible, so you can better focus on the topic at hand.

Improvements in performance and bugs

The overall improvements on the loading times of the platform have been addressed, alongside some bugs with links.

As you can see, there are many things going on behind the scenes, and if there are things you would like to see on the platform or have any feedback, chat with us here. Happy organising!
