We've spent the Christmas period optimising the platform and ensuring all of our dependencies are as up to date as possible. This will all result in an even faster experience using 24social. We've also amended a few bugs to ensure nothing gets in anyone's way!
Content forms will now automatically rename themselves across the dashboard to be plural. This makes it easier for users to understand that they are collections with items inside rather than individual items.
A huge development for the 24social is the place manager mode. Administrators can now assign specific places (yes you can assign more than one) to a unique user set as a venue manager as their role. Once logged in, the venue manager has a unique minimalist view of the data that relates to the place they have been given access to edit. If you control the content for multiple places, you can easily switch between them using the dropdown at the top of the screen.
We've made sure this is accessible on mobile too so managers are only a few clicks away from being able to update their key details on the fly as and when then need to.
We'll keep developing this area further as time goes on to also include an approval process for administrators to check content updated by place managers.
Our search has been re-developed to be slicker, quicker and easier to locate what you need. Start typing in the searchbar and see places, content and assets come up that relate to your search query as you type. Just hit the slash icon on your keyboard ( / ) to open up the searchbar.
Content block groups allow users to quickly add a set list of content blocks to their content form. We've initially added fields which are formatted to collect the key information customers expect to find when searching for a place online. We'll be adding more to this area very soon so keep an eye out for future updates.
We now allow the ability to add new and existing images from your library into the text editor. This is useful for adding media inline as required on your website pages.
After you’ve created a content item, you may wish for it to be published, then unpublished on certain dates. We’ve reformatted the scheduling area to allow you to schedule to your hearts content. Simply add an action you wish to take place on a certain date such as a publish or unpublish hit save and this action will be performed on the set date. You will see an overview of actions against each content item but also by clicking the schedule button on the content form overview page.
You can now choose to make a content field non-editable when configuring it in the content form editor. This is especially useful for when you have data feeding into your 24social account from an API or external source that you do not wish to be editable by users.
We have improved the ability to access our help and support files by adding a help dropdown inside the dashboard. It is also useful for letting us know of any issues you encounter when using the 24social dashboard.
