Product Update: December

Spott customization, made easy!

With this release you will add and customize spotts faster and easier. It’s a big change for existing users and changes the flow, but with a small learning curve we are convinced that you will create better interactive media much faster.

More interactive layouts

We added 7 different layers of Spotts that you can use now! There is a side panel, a carousel, an audio tooltip, an iframe, a form … Previously these layers were hidden; now they are full standalone interactive layers.

In the same action we also made visual cards to better explain each interactive layer with a ready to use style. You can now directly drop a layer on your media which will look good; so you can focus on changing the content and it will be ready to publish.

Better customization options

We added much more options per interactive layer and we also improved the explanation of each customizable item for a better understanding.

Next, we grouped the customization options in a much more logical way. Now, there are 3 tabs that separate the content of the layer from the styling; and even the more advanced options. Per tab the options are grouped per sub-element in the interactive layers; being the spott, the tooltip, the clickable area and the button.

More workspace

In the previous version of the studio the customization of the Spotts was done on the right side, whilst you could perform more actions on the left side. We merged these 2 functionalities so you can focus on 1 thing at a time. By doing this we also won space to focus more on the media that you are making interactive.

Easier template creation

Before you had build up the complete interactive Spott layer from scratch, that’s removed! Now you select an interactive spott and customize it to your own look and feel straight in the studio. If you’re satisfied, you just save this interactive Spott as a template from the studio to be used on other content.  

Easier payments

We changed the way you can buy, upgrade or downgrade your subscription package. You need to perform less steps and can switch more easily from one package to another.

More improvements

You will notice more minor changes that improved the usability of the tool, here’s the list:

  • Editing the colors is now directly saved.
  • Edit mode is much more like the preview mode
  • Timestamp in video also under the tab of content
  • Background color changed of the studio to make it lighter
  • Reduced media content space

What’s next?

This release was a big change in how you select and customize an interactive layer; but we aren’t done yet… we know it can be improved still. In the next weeks we will be working on the further improvement of these options. Next we are making a media library where you can input all your images, catalogues and pdf’s directly to be used in the studio. To end the year we will simplify the structure of the platform with direct access to all important aspects of Spott; removing different tabs, submenu and other hidden features.. they will all be accessible in 1 click!

Enjoy,

Peter
