Ning 2Q 2017 plan!

Most of you have asked us about Product plan for the nearest future. And here it is! 

For the last couple of months we’ve been listening to you very carefully, gathering and analyzing all your feedbacks to make Ning platform a better place for you and your members.

So here is the list of functions we are going to release in Q2.

1) Making Ning 3.0 as functional as Ning 2.0:
- Paid Access. Probably the most expected feature that will be much better and way more functional than the previous version.
- Chats. Basically, they are live now, but in Q2 this option will be upgraded to the next level.
- Audio. The basic feature with basic performance.

2) Completely new features:
- Polls. You will be able to ask different questions, receive immediate feedback from your customers and make research you need in order to evolve your platform.
- Member ranking system. To encourage, motivate and engage your members, as well as develop your community.

3) Some upgrades are coming for both platforms:
- Disk usage is going to be visible for all creators to manage your space and resources.
- Broadcast messages will become more functional, with a bunch of new settings for you and your members.

4) Our brand new redesigns are also coming to push Ning to a new era not only functionally, but visually as well:
- redesign is live now and you can check it out on
- and Ning corporate blog will try out new outfits this quarter too.

5) New migration script. Those who would like to migrate from Ning 2.0 to Ning 3.0 to use more benefits would be able to do that easily.

6) System monitoring. 99,9% of uptime monitoring is now done, which gives us the opportunity to keep everything under control, and provide you with better and better service.

7) Hardware renovation plan, that our tech team is currently working on, is going to be ready by the end of Q2.

  • I wrote to Brice but I'll reiterate here.

    I'd like to see a members' directory.

    Our members provide professional services to fee paying clients and I'd like potential clients to be able to do a postcode (Zip) search and extract info of professionals near to them.

    • Hi there,

      I have added your suggestion to add the ability to search by the zip code to the report that has been previously created when I would receive the reply from our management I'll let you know.

      Thanks for helping us with your ideas, it's highly appreciated.

    Truly exciting news for the future! Please consider adding "Search" to the development plans. It is very important, especially for private sites.

    The new design for, rocks! I AM disappointed that you have removed the link for "Approved Solution Providers". If it's there and I just missed it, my apologies.  A lot of us have worked for years, designing and developing on the Ning platform, gaining trust with Ning and their customers. When Ning offers links to our respective Design/Development Firms, it's a real help to us and your customers.

    Great work, thanks!


    • Hi Jen,

      Thanks for the question.

      "Approved Solution Providers" page would be returned when all contact information would be actualized and updated.

      Sorry for temporary inconveniences.

      Best regards,

      Ning Team.

      I agree wholeheartedly with Jenn.  I love the improvements aside from removing the Approved Solutions Providers.  Please add that back along with https:// capabilities.  Looking forward to everything listed!  Thank you

  • Thanks for update.

    What about the back up thing...I forget what it's called...where you can back up your site. We don't have it on 3. It's pretty important.

    Good luck with your endeavours.
