We’ve improved our onboarding making it as easy as possible to get started with Cevoid, regardless of your role or tech experience. We also added some questions that will help us better understand the user and provide a better experience using Cevoid.
We have now added support for multi-language and currency for Shopify stores.
Other than this we have also improved many of our guides and added some new ones to our help center.
Final month of the year, Black Friday and Cyber Monday is over which went by without any problems at all. Traffic was 50% higher than usual and we managed to server all our customers without a second of down time! 👏 Since last time we've done a very big update to our upload forms. We've sped up the time it takes to upload images and videos from start to finish by a lot and it should be a much fun experience for the customer to share!
This week we have launched our new image processing. We've improved how we manage images for all our apps. This results in faster load times, better caching and better sized images. We've also added some new changes to galleries and done some UX improvements as usual.
This week has been a short although productive week. We decided to take some time off to rest up the team and do some fun activities together. We managed to squeeze in some bug fixes and improvements. We're also working on new integrations for other e-commerce platforms and new upload forms to make the experience faster and easier for customers.
This week we've been doing alot of maintenence and bugfixes around the platform. Nothing new this week. But we're working on some great stuff! 😎
Every week right now feels like a big launch day at the moment. This week we've got a lot of new features ready for UGC merchants. We've also done our mandatory bug fix and general improvements round.
What has changed? Almost everything, except for the layouts which still remain the same. Feeds have a new name and are today galled Grids. Collages and Sliders are still the same. The gallery designer has also gotten a huge remake. There were obvious flaws in the UX of how it worked earlier and should be easier to understand now. We've also created a short gallery wizard when creating custom galleries that help you get set up with the correct options depending on what kind of gallery you are building.
Since one of the main reason for rebuilding our galleries was because we wanted to make the galleries more lightweight and fast we've done a lot of optimising. Our goal is always to serve the fastest galleries and have as little impact of your website as possible.
With that in mind we managed to remove unnecessary code and overhead and decreased the size of the script loaded on your website with roughly 62%. We've also enabled more aggressive caching which should make for MUCH faster loading speeds. In the case that a user has disabled cache in their browser we at least get a 62% speed up when loading our galleries which is a huge improvement from before.
We've also improved our image support and now load WEBP images for browsers that support it which loads images faster for modern browsers.
We're currently hard at work with updating our gallery building experience, multi-language and multi-currency support which has taken up most of the time this week. However, we've identified some pain points and things that needed some love in the platform. Below are the changes we made!
We are making it official, from now on we will publish a changelog every Thursday. This past week a lot has happened. Two major features and many platform improvements have been rolled out. The most exciting has to be our completely rebuilt galleries, as they are something we have wanted to improve for a long time. Another highly requested feature is the possibility to whitelist Instagram users. This way we can collect all tagged and mentioned posts from that user automatically.
Two weeks since we got back and alot of things have already happened. Lots of improvements and new features have been rolled out We've also implemented a service wide 14 day trial program for all customers.
We're going to take some vacation and well deserved rest! We'll be back in two weeks to keep updating! Whole of July we've been working on some pretty big stuff and can't wait to ship it to you once we get back, stay tuned!
Last week we released a big upgrade to our platform. Naturally some bugs slip through. This week we've been hard at work fixing these and making small improvements to areas that we feel needed some more love.
The day is finally here. Our brand new admin platform has been released to the public after alot of work and testing. All customers should now see the improved platform when they visit app.cevoid.com. Below you will find a detailed list of all the changes that has been made compared to the old version.
We are currently hard at work with a rebuild of the platform and how we will allow all users to manage and collect their content much more efficiently. During this time we've still fixed some buggs and minor issues on the platform but will focus the majority of our time on the new launch. Stay tuned!
This month we have been seeing alot of positive feedback regarding the new upload experince. The general time to upload has been decreased since before. We have made some bugfixes regarding the uploading step which was caused by some browsers.
We have added support for Instagram video! Automatic instagram syncs now also import your videos and display them in your galleries. If you want to try this new feature, sync your instagram posts again and you should now see the videos under unlisted posts.
In this update we've listened to a lot of customer feedback and what you all have requested in terms of features! We've added more customisation to the galleries and added language support so that the galleries and upload form can match the language of the website. We've also made a huge overhaul to the upload experience which should now be much smoother for the people uploading content to your store. The public uploading page also got a completely new design and layout which should feel much more engaging and easier to use.
The last two weeks we have been focusing on listening to what our customers want and feel that they are missing with the galleries. We therefore added alot of customization to the galleries to make it easier for everyone to make the Cevoid galleris match their website.
Since our launch we've seen many store owners and entrepeneurs use our app and we've gotten alot of feedback from everyone which has been very valuable! The changes that we're released today include a total rebuild of the onboarding experience for our Shopify customers. Prior we had a checklist for our setup which was quite frankly very tedious and hard to understand for alot of people. The new 'getting started' guide for all new owners should be much more intuitive and better prepare stores for the content that the stores can be filled with.
In the last update we have worked and updated the following features.
