ContentCal Respond updates

A huge thank you to everyone who helped with our Respond Beta. We are now wrapping things up and moving into our 'Preview Release'. If you previously applied for the Beta and didn't get access, we will be rolling out many more invites over the next few weeks.

💎 NEW: Facebook Messenger is now in Respond.

You can now reply to customers via Facebook. Facebook Messages was a hugely requested feature for us, so we are super happy to get this out into the world.

⚡️ Instant messages

Our Beta had limitations on how quickly new Messages appear in Respond. This new update means all Tweets and Facebook Messages are now instant.

🐛 Minor UI updates and bug fixes

Publish to Facebook Groups

Another hugely requested feature for us was the ability to publish content to Facebook Groups. To get early access to Groups publishing, please message us on live chat, and we can enable it for you.

We've spent this week fixing bugs and tidying up code...

  • Fixed layout issues with images in List View
  • Fixed issue where the counter for how many Calendars someone had access to wasn't displaying correctly on the main People screen
  • Fixed issue where clicking 'Add post' multiple times sometimes resulted in the post being added multiple times
  • Fixed minor issues and improved the way Grammarly works with ContentCal whilst using Safari for macOS
  • Various 'under the hood' fixes and improvements

That's all for now. Happy Friday!

Fix for Bitly link issues

We've fixed the issues caused when pasting in links that were previously added to ContentCal. If you experienced this issue, please ensure you update to V1.22 by refreshing your page when in ContentCal.

You can check your version number by heading to the Profile dropdown in the top right-hand corner of your screen.

Auto-magically add Link Previews ✨

The most common place to add a link is at the end of a post. However, before today, doing this has been a little tricky as we required you to hit the Spacebar to activate it.

From today we have 2 new updates...

1) Link Previews will generate automatically if you paste in any link

2) If you manually type in a link, we provide a new button you can click to activate the Link Preview.

Version 1.2 🍣

Right click actions

We've added common actions as right-click actions to speed up your workflow.


Failed Post UI

Failed posts suck. We get that. However, when something does go wrong, we've now made it much easier for you to see which posts are affected. You can also retry the post and see the cause of failure.


More flexible multi-calendar posting

Quite a few of you have been in touch with us to make multi-calendar posting more flexible. From today you will be able to exclude adding the post to the active Calendar. Simply untick it from the existing options.



Clearer attachments UI.

Since social networks have their own preferences to which it dominant from a Link Preview and attached Media, we now provide much clearer UI to help you know this. Look out for the new 'Replace' buttons.

Better Send All For Approval action

We've fixed some issues where posts wouldn't clear if there were lots of them, resulting in you having to press the button multiple times.

Prevent Post Modal from being closed if clicking outside the container
