We’ve released an update to the Echo Experience Studio today. Highlights include…

  • We added Embed button to the top of the Page Template and Widget View Previews to make it easier for users to copy project’s JavaScript code.
  • We deprecated the old ‘Publish’ tab which is now unnecessary since all sharing options are directly on in the preview area
  • When loading your project, all apps are now rendered one-by-one in “sync” mode. This provides a better user experience for projects with a lot of apps.
  • We implemented additional validation so that users can users can enter only valid hashtags (hashtags cannot contain special characters).
  • We fixed an issue that resulted in some projects being created with no title.
  • We fixed an issue that resulted in a UI glitch when the user changed the size of property grid
  • Various other minor tweaks, fixes and security enhancements

With templates, we’ve made creating stunning social experiences as easy as typing in a #hashtag and clicking Go. The Echo Studio will automatically generate a beautiful Social Stream, Social Media Wall, Social Waterfall, Social Stats or Social Hub experience for your Brand Marketing Campaign, Breaking News Coverage or Event.

Once the project is generated, you can share it with your audience or click ‘Edit’ to get the full Echo Experience Studio project editing experience.

Templates are available from our homepage (while you’re logged out) or from the Projects dashboard when you’re logged in.

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.
