Image placeholders

Image placeholders were loading before the widget get opened. Those placeholders may affect page load speed, so we changed the behavior of how they are loaded. Now, these placeholders will be loaded as the widget get opened.

Chrome 76 comes with its native lazyloading solution. It's a great convenience to handle image loading, so we also implemented it.

Also we added a email subscription status to the People section, so you can filter people by their subscription status.

Export your data

Data is king! You can now export both subscribers and feedback using our Export tool.

Simply go to
- People
➡️ Export (Subscribers) OR
- Activities ➡️ Export (Feedback) at the right top corner.

Both lists come in CSV format and are integrable with any email marketing or CRM tools you use.

Intercom integration

Here is a nice improvement for you! Save your time with Intercom integration. You can now display AnnounceKit posts inside Intercom messenger widget. Moreover, it works like any other our widget enabling you to collect Feedback and Emoji reactions.

Every time a user asks you a question, they'll also discover all your recent updates.

The usual practice of keeping users notified is to bombard them with pop-up notifications, flashing bars shouting "Click here". Integrating AnnounceKit with Intercom helps to eliminate all the extras and leave one widget only.

Follow our easy steps to install integration:

Step 1: Dashboard ➡️ Settings ➡️ Integrations

Step 2: Go through the authorization process

Step 3: You'll be automatically redirected to Intercom store page

Step 4: Go to Messenger settings ➡️ Add messenger home apps ➡️ Add an app

Step 5: Choose AnnounceKit and then save

A voila! Your updates posts automatically displayed inside Intercom widget.

Introducing User Tracking. From now on two new sections are going to appear on your dashboard: Activity and People.

People section is essentially a list of all your users including the ones, who have subscribed to your updates.

You can access detailed accounts about each individual. You will know their email address, name, company, country, when they first signed up and last seen. Everything is in one place! Moreover, every account includes a summary of all activities. What posts they felt happy about and feedback they've provided.

Integrate this information to make smart decisions!
