A while ago we worked out our Subscription trigger was not what it needed to be, and whilst we tried our best to fix it, it had to go.

We have replaced it with 2 brand new triggers that will allow you to accurately keep up to date with your subscribers at all times.

We have added the "Subscription became active" Zap and we have added the "Subscription Expired" Zap. What do they do? One will fire every time someone subscribes to your app and one will fire if your member cancels or they do not renew!

Introducing our new Console 🚀

Today we have updated the Console to make it feel more refreshing, more dynamic and of course, make it easier for you to find the information you need to successfully manage your community.

From now on, you’ll be experiencing the new Console (Console v3) 😊

The Console now is a mixture of Console v2 & v3 including a new page and 2 updated pages:

🎥 The Livestream page, a place where you can see analytics of all the past Livestreams and download any recording

👥 The Admins page (previously called Team). This is the page where you can invite co-hosts to have access to the Console if you have the seats available.

Head over to your console now to check out the changes for yourself!

18 April, 2022

Today we’ve renamed the 'Advanced' section to 'Legacy settings' in the Console.

The 'Advanced' section, which you grew to love despite its 'drab & grey' aesthetic, is our pre-console content management system. The name we chose projected a specific image, and since we didn't migrate all features onto the console, it rang true.

In reality, it's just a legacy CMS, which we keep accessible as it further empowers you and your communities.

We're hoping to phase it out in the future, but not before we improve the Console and migrate the most used 'legacy' features over.

And don't worry, this won't happen overnight, but rest assured that this tiny change is an interlude to something much larger and better! Watch this space! 👀

14 April, 2022

Do you find your members sometimes post in the wrong groups?

Well...you can now move the posts from your Console!

Simply head to your posts page and on the post you want to move, click the more menu and select "Move Post", then choose the group you want it to be moved to and there you have it!

11 April, 2022

The Console is changing! 🎮

We've updated the design colours on the Console for a better look & feel.

A new version of Android is out! 📱

This release of v3.56 introduces a new version of the Paywall members sees in the app. This is the first change we are making in this area but with future changes planned, watch this space....

Other than that we have introduced group header images to Android! This feature is already on Web and iOS but we thought it was about time we updated it so the members who use the Android app could see it too! As well as this if you disable comments and likes on an article the Android app will now react to that setting.

5 April, 2022

Another day, another release!

Today we have updated the text and links around the console, we renamed the 'Advanced' section to 'Legacy settings'.

In reality, it's just a legacy CMS, which we keep accessible as it further empowers our hosts and their communities.

We're hoping to phase it out in the future, but not before we improve the console and migrate the most used 'legacy' features over.

And don't worry, this won't happen overnight, but rest assured that this tiny change is an interlude to something much larger!

This feature is already on the Web version but we thought it was about time we updated it so the members who use the iOS app could see it too! As well as this if you disable comments and likes on an article the iOS app will now react to that setting.

With the iOS app now also members can see who liked a comment, report another member from the app - If they have to, and they will be able to click on an event if it has already happened which is exactly how the events work across all of our platforms from this release onwards.

Finally, we have fixed a few things also so you shouldn't see any errors on messaging and the images and folders will behave themselves when scrolling up and down the app.

We now allow you to add a member to a group direct from Zapier. This means that you can automate members into the right groups or create maybe a secret group and ensure only your most active members get added to it, without you manually getting involved at all!

Happy Friday! 🧨

Friday Fact time, did you know the English name Friday comes from the Old English Frīġedæġ, meaning “Day of Frige"? This is as a result of the Old English goddess Frigg (an Anglo-Saxon interpretation of the Norse goddess Freya) being associated with the Roman goddess Venus.♀️

This January release includes a crucial bug fix with folder descriptions but is mainly centered around behind-the-scenes updates and improvements. We have upgraded to the latest version of Xcode to keep up with all the latest benefits that it gives us, head over to your console and get your iOS app updated.

We are planning a further 2 smaller versions in the next few weeks but for now, get updated and keep all your members up to date with the latest we have to offer.

We have a new set of webhooks! 🕸️🪝

Let's talk....Subscriptions! A short while ago we noticed our old "user_subscription_change" webhook, well, was just that, old!

Subsequently, we have replaced it with 2 brand new webhooks to ensure you are getting exactly the right information about your subscribers.

More information will be out in the near future via the Collective but for now, you can see these webhooks in the normal place, one handles the new subscribers and is aptly titled "user_subscription_became_active" and on the flip side we have also added user_subscription_became_expired.

If webhooks are new to you or you have any additional questions on how you can best utilise webhooks in your community please reach out to us!

25 January, 2022

This week has all been about speed 🏃‍♀️💨💨💨

763.035 mph That is the time for the current holder of the Outright World Land Speed Record. Andy Green holds the record, a feat he achieved over a distance of one mile in October 1997.

This is known as the first supersonic record as it exceeded the sound barrier at Mach 1.016.

Well, we aren't that quick but over the last few weeks, we have made various improvements to the backend to help us boost the performance of our software and we will continue to do so and monitor closely 💨💨💨
