Summer UX improvements in settings panel

We've updated our settings with a bunch of gentle UX improvements.

A groundwork for some upcoming product updates 😎

Wistia videos support

Wistia is joining the list of supported video platforms. To add your Wistia video, simply copy its url from the browser and wrap it in a video markdown to turn this:

![Wistia is for Marketing](

into this:

Empty emails

Today our application sent a few empty emails. We fixed the issue and re-sent all affected messages 🙌

Google Sign-In

You can now log into Headway with any Google account, and we highly recommend it. Not only it's one less password to remember, but Google offers an extra level of security with two-factor authentication options.

To connect your Google account, simply navigate to Settings -> Profile and select how you want to log into your account.

Delay in publishing changelogs

Some scheduled changelogs, tweets, and slack messages queued up this weekend and were not published on time. We fixed the issue and all delayed publications should be out 😇

Changing the author

Now you can select which member of your team will be displayed as the author on your public page.

Authors visibility switch

We added a new setting allowing you to control whether authors should be visible on your public changelog page.

You can find it in Settings -> Public page.

Changelogs favicons

We automated generating favicons for all of our changelogs. If your changelog doesn't have a logo yet, be sure to upload one in Settings-> Account. Favicon will appear within seconds!

Mailto links fix

A bug in the editor caused mailto links to stop working. We fixed the issue and all affected changelogs.

Externally triggering widget popover

Until today you could only trigger the widget popover only by clicking on the badge, but sometimes it makes sense to toggle the popover from an external link, say like we do above, with the Release notes link.

Getting it implemented is really simple, just add the trigger option to the widget config, the value can be any selector (for example, .widgetTrigger or #toggle-headway-widget).

The full config would look like this:

let HW_config = {
  account: "...",
  selector: "...",
  trigger: ".externalTrigger"

For more configuration options see our widget documentation.

No published changelogs yet.

Surely Headway will start publishing changelogs very soon.

Check out our other public changelogs: Buffer, Mention, Respond by Buffer, JSFiddle, Olark, Droplr, Piwik Pro, Prott, Ustream, ViralSweep, StartupThreads, Userlike, Unixstickers, Survicate, Envoy, Gmelius, CodeTree
