🔥 Achtung! User Tracking & Segmentation

Meet our new Business Plan! All this time we have been working on making our Feedback & Reaction feature more powerful. With a cherry on a cake – Segmentation!

Feedback feature is more effective than ever before and provides compelling insights!

User Tracking

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!

Disclaimer: It will take time for system to capture data. For now all previous activities are done by mystical Someone. :)

Segmentation

We are happy to announce a brand new Segmentation feature!

Now you can send customers targeted messages. Talk to specific groups or directly to one user. The filters include signed up, first seen, country and web sessions, that help you to identify groups of interest. Combined with filter conditions it becomes your ultimate superpower feature.

Slack Integration

We’ve listened to your feedback and happy to present you a brand new Slack Integration.

We wanted to give some care for those who don't have time to come here on a daily basis and check your Feedback, Emoji Reactions, and New subscribers alert.

Every time a person sends you feedback or reacts by clicking on emoji or subscribes to your announcements, you will automatically get notified about it in your Slack channel.

👉  Go to Integrations on your dashboard and setup your Slack integration.

New Badge Animations

We know how to catch your users attention! Introducing Badge widgets that make your site visitors wonder and click on your updates page.

Drive more engagement with beautifully animated Badge widgets.

Go to Widget on your Dashboard ➡️  Select Badge widget ➡️  Scroll down to Badge Animation. We called them Pulse and Shake.

Enjoy the new Subscription Feature

We are happy to announce that your users can now subscribe to your updates! 💃💃💃 Bring their attention to the latest news even when they are away from your website by automatically sending them an email to their inbox.

Your loyal customers will be excited to be the first to know.

Say Hi to User Feedback & Reactions

Announcekit now works both ways! With the new Feedback feature, your visitors can leave a reaction or text based response to your posts.

No more long survey users never fill in! 🙌

Make it easy for customers to react and share their feedback. All they need to do is to click on emoji! Discover right away if your company is on the right track.

Introduce smart ways to hear your user’s opinions and let them know that their voices are being heard.

Sounds great? Tell us your feedback down below 😉

Meet our new Sidebar Widget

Our sidebar widget is cooler than it was. Now you can display your full posts, including images, videos, code samples, etc within the widget. No need to direct users to a secondary page.

And this is not it! The sidebar is also faster than before, without adding any bloat to your pages. 🔥

Give it a shot using the new configuration settings on your widgets page and let us know if you have more suggestions.

Animated GIFs Are Now Supported

GIFs are a great way to spice up your changelog posts or add small video clips showing off the new features to your users. Now you can upload animated gif clips in your AnnounceKit posts.

Time to celebrate!

Track Your Views With Google Analytics

Numbers matter. We know how important is to track views of your posts.

Today we released Google Analytics integration. To connect your GA account, you need to enter your property ID under Project Settings.

  • Post views are tracked as pageviews.
  • Widget views are tracked as events.

Private Feed Feature

Today we released Private Feed and Hide from Search Engines features for users who have privacy concerns.

Private Feed feature will block access to your feed and return 404. Access to posts will be only available from widgets, and each post will have a unique expiring link for each IP.

Hide from Search Engines feature, as is evident from its name, blocks search bots to crawl your posts. All of your posts will be still public and your public feed will be available.

Both features are only available in the Pro plan.

You Can Now Invite Your Teammates

We are happy to announce you team collaboration feature.
If you work in a team or like to collaborate with friends on side-projects then you will love it.

Look for Collaborators tab under the Settings. You can up to 20 teammates for each project.
