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:
- Ning.com redesign is live now and you can check it out on https://www.ning.com/
- Creators.ning.com 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.

    • Poppili no, 2.0 is old, old code and deteriorating day by day.  You can put bandaids on it - but they're bandaids.  It's like comparing Windows 3.1 or Vista to Windows 10.  Yes Vista is out there but it cannot keep up with today's tougher standards in operation and design. 

      They've created a responsive 3.0 with new code which, yes, takes a little getting used to but I wouldn't go back to 2.0 now if they paid me.  I love 3.0.  Love love love it.

    • Hi there,

      As you may see from the Q2 plan the design would be changed for ning.com site and Creators.ning.com. (actually, it has been already changed for ning.com).

      If you are talking about the design of the networks based on 3.0 platform, as the design is totally up to you probably there are some additional tools are need to change something that you are not able to change at the moment?

      Best regards,

      Ning team.

       

  • Are we going to have the photo gallery feature in 3.0 . i know we will have photo feature . but will we be able to group photos in galleries

    • Hi there!

      At this moment you can create the categories to group the photos that have been uploaded to the network. It could be done on the site and pages tab, there you should simply find your photo page and add several categories of photos.

      However this could be not what you are looking for if so please be a little bit more specific about what exactly you mean under the galleries and how they should work in your opinion so I could take a look into our future plans and see if we have something similar already, and if not I would pass your suggestion to the management team.

      Thanks,

      Ning Team.

      • i meant photo albums . are there plans to add albums to the photo feature in 3.0 . that's a big deal there . We take photos at alot of events and concerts so the album is a big part of our network

        • Hi there,

          Sorry but I haven't found the photo albums in the plans for the near future, so I have passed your suggestion to the management of the platform. If they would decide that it's worth adding such feature I'll inform you about it.

          Regards,

          Ning Team.

      • I wonder If madaroad is speaking of photo albumns as that is the one big thing missing for photos. I would love to see this added, categories are nice but to be able to create your own photo albumns would be excellent.

        John :-)

        • Hey John your right thats what i am talking about photo albums. I use it alot on my 2.0 site . Hoping you guys are planning on having it on 3.0 . yes the photo album feature is a big thing. Are there plans to have it added to 3.0?
  • I am looking for rating of content in addition to members.

  • I am still wondering if prices will remain the same as the new ideas are set forth and those of us on 2.0 look to have previous issues ironed out
