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!

        • Hi there!

          Thanks for your willingness to help! 

          When all preparations would be made and the trial run on test networks would be successful, we will contact you back via email that has been used to join creators network if you don't mind.

          Best wishes,

          Ning Team. 

    • There's a broadcast email option.

  • Hello Kyryl ... the audio ... and private message to all members ... can this evolve ... be tools to transform and open doors to the field of life social network ning ... will be to see ... Greetings Kyryl ...

    Thank ...

    • Hi Manuel!

      As you may see the audio feature has been included in the Q3 plan so it would be released soon and there is not much time left to wait.

      By the way, a small update regarding the ability to send a private message to all network members. Managers really liked your idea and they would try to include it in our schedule if that is possible based on the time it will take to implement such changes.

       Best regards,

      Ning Team.

      • On the Hoop.la sites their broadcast comes on the front page as a box with whatever you put into it. I can do it everyday, we aren't only able to do it five times a month. I love it, I really do. I put on a special holiday or an event or something once or twice a week. It gives my members a chance to read it. I add photos and words, I love it! I also put like a photo of an herb and the explanation of it, it's really fun. Then at the bottom of the broadcast there is a little box that says, "mark as read". That way the next time the member comes onto the site it's not popping up again until I add a new one. I love it and so do my members. Hoop.la is the company that also sends out a daily diary of all of the new discussions that was added to the site the day before. They don't send out daily diary for emails. Not needed, lol.

      • i hope we are given an option to turn that off. Because the musicians on my site will loose their mind email blasting everyone. And then again what about spam. Maybe this should have an option to promote a valued member to this status but not everyone. That may be more valuable

        • Hi there,

          Based on the description that has been given to me, this option would be available only to Network creators on the first stage, after such possibility also would be added to the admins of the network. So no worries regular members won't have access to it.

          Best regards,

          Ning Team.

          • Thank you

      • Hola Kyryl ... es fantástico lo que dices ... gracias ...
