Hello everyone 👋
We're really excited to unveil what we worked on over the last week.
Let's get started
We have made some changes to the release editor page so the process of publishing a release note feels more natural. When you go to the edit release page now you’ll notice that at the top there are 3 tabs.
Your ol’ release editor
The new "Email Subscribers" tab
"Setup Broadcast Message" tab (which you will see if there are issues & users attached to your release)
Let’s talk about the “Email Subscribers” tab
This tab makes it easier for you to manage the email that would go out to your subscribers.
Here you can check the subscribers list
Write the subject for the email that goes out
Send a test email
Preview the email
Another change that we are pushing in this update is related to publishing the release note
Scheduling the publish or expiration date has been moved to publish sidebar (earlier these options were in release note settings sidebar). This way you can see all the relevant options when deciding to publish a release note.
The publish release button will now open a sidebar which has additional options for you to customise the release publish.
You can decide if you want to publish the release note right away or schedule it for later.
Set an expiry date for a release note.
Choose to send an email to all your subscribers.
Choose to send an announcement message to the users who are linked to the release note through issues.
🐞 We’ve also squashed some bugs and polished some rough edges:
Fixed an issue where emojis of country flags were not rendering correctly on windows machines
Fixed an issue where a user’s social profile information was not being displayed on filters
Added filters by Issue Status and Replies to Feedback so you can view all feedback which are linked to a DONE issue but don’t have any replies or announcements yet.
Fixed a bug on Dashboard widgets where the scroll button was not working.
Fixed product links in the Olvy Zapier integration setup screen.
Fixed an issue where after google sign in some users were being redirected to a non-existent page.
Fixed some style and responsiveness issues on the releases portal.
If you have any feedback or suggestions for us, please reach us here.
That's it for now, and keep an eye out for the next update.
Till next time 👋
