When Is The Next Release Coming?
Hi everyone! In July I mentioned that we were working on a product redesign which involved a new visual design and also improvements to screens that you use regularly to run your business, such as the Add Product, Add Orders and Dashboard screens. In addition, I mentioned that the release will include new themes, a carousel builder and a way to tie your social media profiles more easily to your store.
The good news is that the release is almost ready. The not so good news is that it’s taken a little longer than we would’ve liked. These things happen and we didn’t want to rush the release, so we decided to take our time and do things right. To focus on the little details. To really improve the user experience. To make sure the new themes look gorgeous in all browsers and on all screen sizes. To give you an experience that makes your life a little easier every day.
We are still a few weeks away from rolling the release out and it will be opt-in for a while, meaning that you can try it out and play with it while still having the option to go back to the old (current) design. We really hope you’ll like it.
In the meantime, we are of course still rolling out weekly updates that focus on small improvements and bug fixes.
Got It. What Else Is In The Pipeline?
While working on the redesign and other improvements mentioned above, we’ve been working night and day on other projects in parallel.
We’ve tripled the size of our engineering, product and design teams since the start of the year so we can further accelerate our product development and platform efforts in line with our new tag line – Sell More.
Upcoming product and platform improvements will help run your business on the go, drive more traffic and sales, boost the speed of your store, streamline your business processes and better integrate your store with other software you use to run your business. We are also working hard to implement the most popular features suggested in our ideas forum.
On that note, we’re about to launch a much better way to get your feedback and ideas directly to our product management team. You’ll be able to chat with them, share ideas and even go one-on-one with them in person if you happen to be in Sydney or Austin. They will be able to give you a good idea of when a requested feature will be built but they will also be able to tell you if we actually won’t be building a feature that’s been requested. Transparency and timeliness are the key measurements for this particular project we’ve been working on. We value your feedback and ideas immensely.
Stay tuned for a series of announcements and releases around what I’ve mentioned above. We’ve put tens of thousands of hours in to the upcoming releases and I can’t wait for you to see what we’ve been working on.
