Reports Show Stats From a Longer Timeframe by Default

We have changed the date range displayed by default in the My Reports section (which is found under Reports -> My Reports).

Previously, the default range was limited to the most recent ~3 years, but we now show the entire period from the date of the first available review until the present time. This means that users will see stats for our entire dataset from the first click.

Of course, our date filtering options are still available, so it is easy to choose any particular time interval for which you wish to see the available stats.

Improved Onboarding Flow for New Users

We have released a new onboarding flow for recently-registered users. This will allow them to set up their account in four simple steps:

Step 1: Add your Review Sources: here you can add as many review sources as you would like.

Step 2: Share Your Landing Page: here you can edit your landing page for generating reviews and share it with others.

Step 3: Send Review Invitations: here you can send your first review invitation.

Step 4: Show off your Reviews: customize your reviews widget, which can be embedded on any website.


The new onboarding will enable new customers to get started with Reviewshake much faster than before.

Revamped Review Sources

The Review Sources page has a new look, as well as a few other changes under the hood.

On the frontend side, the sources list has an improved aspect, which makes it easier to locate your favorite source. Also, the source setup now opens in a modal, rather than a new window. If you need the source ID (which was previously in the URL), don't worry: you will find it in the modal for adding/editing a source.



In the backend, we have changed the way the authentication for Facebook and Google works. There shouldn't be any visible difference from how it worked before, but the new implementation should be more robust and future-proof.
