Keeping your customers in the loop is what we're all about, and our changelog widget is one of the best ways of doing this. The changelog widget is designed to keep your users up to date with your product’s latest features, updates, beta releases or announcements.
Quick Access To Specific Website Builder Articles:
Watch The Setup Video Below:
1) To set up the widget, click the ‘changelog’ button in your room settings.
2) Enter the element name that will trigger the widget. This isn't a CSS selector, do don't use # or . selectors, just use the element name, eg. 'changelogtrigger'.
3) Copy the code snippet by clicking the green copy button.
4) Paste this in your website, and that’s it!
Now, when your users click the button or icon with the element trigger name, your changelog will open on the right hand side.
Users can subscribe to notifications via email, send their feedback or even share their feature requests or ideas with you. Everything they do is automatically tracked to their user account so, unlike other tools, they don’t need to sign up for a separate account!
As you can see, the changelog widget greys out the page and then animates in on the right-hand side.
Pushing Updates To The Changelog
To push a topic to the changelog, just click the ‘Add to Changelog’ button:
Then just fill out the information and select the type of update in the dropdown. When you push it, any subscribers to that topic will automatically be notified via email, improving user retention and bringing dormant users back to your platform!
