New Echo Studio Release: New Pages Design & Project Wide Content

Posted on November 6th, 2014 by Chris Saad
Posted in Announcements, Release Notes

Today we’re proud to announce two major updates that customers have been asking for…

1. New Hosted Pages Design

We’ve refreshed the look and feel of our Experience Pages so make them more modern and to include sharing buttons on the top right. This new design lends itself better to a wider range of use cases and lays the ground work for upcoming features (top secret!)



2. Project Wide Content Configuration

Now you can configure social content on your project (#hashtags, user timelines etc) once, and have them be applied to all the visualizations you drag onto your project. You can still override the content configuration on a per visualization basis by clicking on it and, in the property sheet to the right, expanding the ‘Social Content’ property group and clicking ‘Override’. This will clear the visualization and allow you to set content rules for that specific visualization only.


As always, we’d love your feedback on these changes and what you’d like to see next. Please don’t hesitate to email or use the chat box on the bottom right corner of the Echo Experience Studio interface.

Release notes for Echo Experience Studio v2.2.6

Posted in Release Notes

It’s been almost a week since we announced the Echo Experience Studio.

Thanks for all your amazing feedback and feature requests for the Echo Experience Studio. The response has been amazing!

Of course, we will continue to improve the Studio as fast as possible based on customer feedback. To that end… a new release has been shipped overnight. Improvements include…

  • We have optimized the Preview refresh after edits. Editing a Project with many apps caused performance problems due to the fact that the whole preview was refreshed (along with installed apps) after every single modification to settings. We’ve improved the update logic and made it more granular. Now only the affected app is refreshed in a Preview when its settings are altered.
  • We have fixed a drag-and-drop glitch which made it difficult for Apps that were each 50% wide to be placed next to each other in the project.
  • We have changed the animation shown when loading the project preview or a hosted page. There is now one less “Loading…” message in the process.
  • We have added a saving indicator which appears after any changes to a project. It helps users understand when their changes are being saved in real-time
  • Various other bug fixes and performance improvements.

Keep the feedback coming!
