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.

    • This is exactly one of the issues I'm talking about in regards to site security and I'm sure other people experience when they try and access a ning site and use https:// instead - it doesn't give any confidence in the site they are trying to access. 

  • What About Member Search  better than Ning  2. we will wating so long for this feature on ning 3 .

    • Hi there,

      The search functionality hasn't been included in the Q2 plan, however, I have posted the feedback to our management that you are waiting for this feature and it will be nice adding to the existing platform.

      Also, you have mentioned that the search should be better than on Ning 2.0 platform, could you please specify what exactly have you meant? Probably some vital functionality there has been missing?

      Looking forward to hearing from you.

      Best regards,

      Ning Team.

      • Thanks for Reply Kyryl_Ning_Support  

        Finding members who are nearby and online is a feature that Ning 2 did not have. So, adding this options to Ning 3 would be an important improvement.

        It's been over 10 years since ning 2 has the same member Search  I Think a New member search   Will help our members expand their circle of contacts and at the same time help our communities become more social

  • Is HTTPS included with the Paid Access update?

    • Hi Matt,

      The Https isn't included in Paid Access as I see. The work under its implementation is going at the same time as we are implementing the new features.

      Best regards,

      Ning Team.

      • Can you clarify this Kyryl - are we going to get SSL Secure Certificates on all Ning networks irrelevant of if we use paid access or not?

        • Hi Mike,

          The SSL certification won't be tied to the Paid Access feature. So there would be no need to have Paid Access in order to have your network certified.  

          Best regards, 

          Ning Team. 

  • Can you explain Audio a little? Is that uploading music or adding an audio feature to chat?

    • Hi there,

      Thank you for the question.

      The audio feature is about uploading music to the network and creating the playlists.


      Ning Team.
