Ning Q3 2017 plan!

When building up a plan for Q3, we based our roadmap on your feedback and suggestions, which we have been gathering and analyzing over the previous quarter. Aligning the list of the most sought-after features and your vision of our product with our planned development direction, we decided to focus on the following updates in Q3:

Improvements of Ning platform`s functionality:

  • Paid Access. The full release of this update will include Stripe integration in response to your feedback. Network creators will be able to set paid access to certain sections of their networks, monetize specific content (events, webinars, user-generated content with high rating), and get donations.

  • Audio. Many of you claimed the priority of this update, so this functionality will be delivered soon.

  • Release of Polls feature.  After the release of Search, this functionality often got listed among top priorities for the development. We remember that we promised to get it to you, so our dev team is already working on it.

We will also be adding smaller updates that you were asking for on Creators Network, such as:

  • Facebook integration

  • HTML5 (instead of Flash player)

  • Design studio tweaks

  • UI/UX improvement for mobile devices

Another aspect that we will touch upon is the overall usability of the product. We are already working in multiple directions in this regard - starting with Blog redesign.

Remember Kyryl, our Support Manager, who is always there for you whenever you have any questions? We tried to talk him out of it, but he could not resist reworking the Creators network for you, to improve its usability in accordance with your feedback. Yay to another part-time developer on the team - and condolences to his free time :)

That being said, have you ever wanted to join Ning team to steer the development process? Ready to jump into planning our upcoming releases with us? We’ll be back with this unprecedented opportunity soon - be the first to test pilot it!

If you have any suggestions on how to improve our service or you need help, please feel free to contact us via email support@ning.com or live chat. Follow us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/Ning/) and Twitter (https://twitter.com/Ning) to stay fully informed about all upcoming updates.

Thank you for staying with us and inspiring our development!

  • Hola Kyryl ... en el plan de 5 administradores no está contando al creador ... gracias

  • Will the message broadcast option ever get analytics? 

    • HI Jennifer,

      Thanks for the question.

      Like I have mentioned in reply to Alliance, we will try to release update for broadcast message feature like click tracker or integration of 3rd party mailing systems but unfortunately, we are not sure that we will be able to accomplish it till the end of Q3 and in order not to give false promises it hasn't been included in this post.

      Best wishes,

      Ning Team.

  • Disappointing to see member ranking as now only a 'maybe' for QTR3 - agree with Alliance here on delivering on what you promise. Understand there may be more development required but the detailed scoping work should be done before communicating these changes imo. 

    We need to be able to plan our community strategies on how we engage with our members and encourage participation and growth - these sort of features which have a big impact on our ability to engage and interactive with members are very important.

    Overall great to see the progress being made. 

    • Hi, Mike!

      Thanks for your feedback, as the platform hasn't been created by us initially, unfortunately, it requires could take more time in order to even slight changes. The time frame for each task is determined based on the past experience of the developers, we are using the correction factor to adjust this time frame so it would be more reliable. With each completed task our predictions are closer and closer to the truth, so sooner or later (I hope sooner) we will be able to provide more accurate estimates.

      I know it's not an excuse, but I have decided to share some light on this situation and explain why it's happening so.

      Best wishes,

      Ning Team.

      • Thanks for clarifying Kyryl 

  • EMOJIS!

    • Hi there!

      We already have the suggestion to add emojis blogs/discussions etc. in our task tracking system.

      I have added your feedback there as well, and once there will be any info regarding the implementation of it, we will let you know.

      Best regards,

      Ning Team.

  • The product needs closed captioning ability for .mp4 video,  especially since US federal law requires captioning for access of deaf and hard of hearing individuals.

    • Hi, Mary!

      Thanks for the suggestion, I'll pass it to the management and I hope they would make the right decision.

      When the decision would be made or any specification/feedback required we will contact you back here on creators.

      Best regards,

      Ning Team.
