Hashtag App

We've launched a new hashtag app that allows you to run just hashtag promotions, without needing to set up an entry form. You now have three separate options when it comes to hashtags:

  • Hashtag only: Collect entries just using a hashtag and display them in a gallery.

  • Sweepstakes: Collect entries via a form, and using a hashtag. No gallery.

  • Contest: Collect entries via a form, and using a hashtag and display all entries in a gallery.

Turn off Auto-Refresh

Some users found it distracting that the new builder constantly refreshed every time a change was made on the page. We've added a simple toggle in the top right corner to disable auto-refresh if it is distracting for you. You can now manually click the refresh button in the editor to see the latest preview.

Add scripts to contest voting

If you're running a contest and want to add tracking scripts that fire after someone casts a vote, you can now do this under the tracking scripts section.

A common use case here would be running Facebook Ads to get people to vote in a contest. You can have your Facebook pixel fire when a vote is cast by adding your Facebook pixel to the voting scripts box.

Hashtag Updates for Instagram

The latest API changes from Instagram no longer allow apps to access the username of a user who made a post on Instagram. While we can still pull in hashtag posts on Instagram as well as the URL to the associated post, we cannot pull in usernames. In order to identify who the user is, you will need to click on the link to their post, which will take you to their post on their Instagram page.

Under the entrants tab, instead of seeing their username, you will now see Instagram User and you can click on each one to be taken to their page to identify who they are.

Modify entries for users

We've just released a new feature that will now allow brands to modify entry numbers for users. Any entries that have been already earned by a user and automatically applied by our system cannot be changed, however, you can manually add or remove entries for a user if they did something off of the platform (like visited your store) or if you deem they did not actually complete an action fully, you can remove entries from their total.
