Improved Comments Notifications

We've listened to recent feedback in regards to improving our email notifications for Comments. From today, you will receive emails for comments on your posts regardless of @ mention or no @ mention. This should prevent missing comments.

Notifications are notoriously hard, and we're always looking for feedback to help us improve in this area. Any suggestions: https://www.contentcal.io/requests-and-roadmap

A few goodies ahead of the Easter break...

Connect to over 1000 apps by connecting ContentCal to Zapier

Here are just a few examples of what you can do...

  • Star a Slack message and have that message appear in your ContentCal Pinboard
  • Add your favourite Pocket articles straight to ContentCal
  • Push your content out to different services such as Pinterest, Hubspot, Trello and many, many more.

The ContentCal app is available now on Zapier via Early Access. You can connect here: https://zapier.com/apps/contentcal/integrations

Custom header colours

You can now add a touch of personality to each Calendar by setting a custom header colour. To choose a new colour, head to 'Setup' and find 'Custom Navigation Colour'. If you aren't digging the pre-selected colours, you can add your own HEX code.

We've made inviting people much easier

1) You can now invite someone to your Organisation and add them to Calendars at the same time. The default permission here will be Creator, but you can adjust this to any permission from Members + Approvals.

2) If you invite someone to ContentCal, but they sign up via our website and not the invitation link, ContentCal will now automatically join that person with your Organisation.

New media uploader

As you've probably noticed already, our media uploader is looking fresh! It now comes with built-in integrations, meaning you can upload media from a range of sources including Google Drive, Dropbox, Gmail, Webcam and many more.

Embedded Link Previews are here πŸŽ‰

This new update allows you to see Link Previews in both the Week and List views.


(If you don't like these being displayed, there is a setting to hide them in Profile > Display Link Previews in the Calendar.)


We've made sharing posts 10000x easier

You can now open the post modal for any post in the Calendar Views, and copy and paste the URL. This unique URL will take you or anyone else in your Organisation directly to the post. So you can now bookmark posts, share to Slack, etc etc. We will also be re-factoring all our email templates so that emails can link you to specific posts too, rather than just to the Calendar.


New signup journey for invited users

We've re-designed the signup journey from your feedback. It's now much clearer that the invited user is joining your team, rather than generically signing up.

22nd March 2019

We had a temporary glitch where the post text was disappearing if you changed the post date, ie drag and dropping it to a different day.

This is now fixed.

In order to make the text appear for posts where it’s disappeared (ie drag and drop action done before the fix), this can be resolved by clicking into the post and then re-saving it. No content is lost, it’s just a glitch which wasn’t showing it in the calendar views.

Are you a Zapier user? We are looking for Beta testers before we release ContentCal onto the Zapier app store. Contact us using live chat if this is of interest to you.

  • Fixed an issue where @ mentioning in comments would only work if you used an uppercase first letter.
  • Fixed a conflict issue with Twitter emoji and line breaks.
  • Fixed a metrics statistic for 'Engagement', which was causing issues for some customers.
  • Minor updates to post editor states for saving posts
  • Fixed an issue where Hobbyist and Pro plan users permissions didn't revert back to 'Moderator'

Beta update: Approver who can edit permission

If you helped us test this out and gave feedback, thank you πŸ˜€. We've made an update to this permission from feedback. This permission now allows users to create content too, rather than just approving and editing existing posts. Yes, the title 'Approver who can edit' now sucks πŸ‘Ž. We will change this to a better title once we're out of the Beta.
