26th April

Tab Install Improvements

Just a few updates to the Tab installation method for Competitions and Rewards:

  • Turning off this install method will actually turn it off now
  • You can now hide the Tab via the position dropdown menu (rather than using CSS to do it)

21st April

The Leaderboard on Gallery will now continue to show even if you disable voting.

20th April

New Feature Checking For Plans

We'll now let you know which features you will lose when downgrading your plan. This has a few consequences:

  • If you're on a paid plan then downgrade to Free but still have an active campaign with paid features it will end when your plan ends.
  • The same will happen if you're on Business but change to Pro when you still have an active campaign that has Business features. You are given the opportunity to remove these features.

28th March

Improved YouTube Channel Parsing

We've made some improvements to pull the URL's of channels owned by any YouTube entrants. Up until now we were returning their Google+ profile, but that made it hard to contact winners.

So now you'll be able to see the channel of any entrants, which should make it easier to see any entries (if it's a video upload) or contact them when they win.

26th March

Support for Messenger in Viral Shares

You can now enable Messenger in your Viral Share action to allow users to share your campaign to their Messenger contacts.

This action works differently depending on device:

  • On Desktop: It will open up Facebook desktop to send the message
  • On Mobile: It will open up the Messenger app directly to send the message

21st March

Spotify Actions

14th March

Some Free Plan Changes

We've made some changes to the Free plan to make winner draws more fair and transparent for entrants:

  • Free plans can no longer hide the Total Entries on campaigns
  • Free plans can no longer invalidate non-winner entries
  • Free plans can no longer archive entries

8th March

Tracking API Improvements

We've made some considerable improvements to our Tracking API on Custom actions:

  • We've reduced the number of steps to completion (making it easier for users)
  • The API now auto-completes if a user is logged into the campaign and completes the action. Before they had to physically come back to the widget and click "continue"
  • We've improved tracking in Safari/iOS where 3rd party cookies are disabled by default
  • If the action is set to daily, the user will need to complete the Tracking again (previously they could piggyback off the old tracking and complete the action every day without re-doing it)
