Overview of Q3 and Ning Q4 2017 plan.

Better late than never - here is the product plan Q3 overview and Plans for Q4.
As you might have noticed, all the promised features have been released. We did our best to keep the deadlines and fit your expectations.
So here are Q3 updates:

1. Paid Access is finally live. It is even more than just old Paid Access, it is a great e-commerce platform with Stripe and PayPal integration. For now it is only available for beta-group, so if you forgot to ask for beta access, don’t miss your chance till Nov 3d.
2. Audio feature is live. Now you can easily create playlists, audio lessons, add audio tracks, podcasts, and any mp3 files. The feature has got a completely new design, which we think looks awesome.
3. Polls. Completely new feature for Ning, only available for Ning 3.0. Using Polls all Ning NCs can easily get up to date feedback from Network members.
4. The Design Studio got a few new templates, a bunch of new fonts and backgrounds to make it more user-friendly and provide flexibility of options you have in order to make your network modern and unique even without coding skills.
5. SSL certification had been implemented for all ning domain names.

Keeping in mind that we are living in the era of mobile devices all new features have been developed in a way so they would look great on mobile devices.

You could not miss how the Creators network changed, which is completely Kyryl’s merit, as is the new guide for Facebook integration.

And now as for the next steps, we are going to make:

1. Member ranking system
2. E-commerce platform wider development (donations, network membership, groups)
3. MailChimp Integration
4. SSL for custom domains, completely automated process.
5. Push notifications

Besides, there are lots of other improvements on the way, more related to back end, like the rework of the activity feed architecture and migration script (these are just the biggest ones so we simply can't help but highlight them).

As always we are happy to receive feedback from you, so feel free to drop us a line.

Sincerely yours,
Ning Team.

        • And there it is...gone again...it does not appear automatically. It vanished after i left page and returned...

          • Hello!

            To be honest, it is really strange, I just double-checked and it has disappeared for me as well! While I am trying to figure out why its happening, I can offer you to use the direct link - https://somathread.ning.com/members/list/featured
            I will let you know once I have any update.

              • Hello!

                You are welcome :) I did not manage to understand why the tab randomly disappears so I reported it as a bug and hopefully it will be fixed soon!

                Regarding the social site manager - I apologize for the inconveniences!

                But could you please check the Social Site Manager now? It should be ok at the moment. 

                Looking forward to your reply!

                • Hi Anastasia, the Featured Members tab is now working (thank you) but the Social Site Builder is still just one long list. Not the way it used to be with drag and drop modules for home page etc. Unless this is something wrong with my browser?

                  • Hi!

                    Actually, we are still looking into the Featured Members tab, but I hope it will not disappear again. I think our team has found the solution already, but we are double-checking just to be sure. 

                    Regarding the Social Site Builder - could you please try to hard refresh just in case? Its Ctrl + F5. 

                    Meanwhile, I will report this issue so we can look into it. 

                    Please accept my apologies for the inconveniences once again!

              • And there is something wrong for past 24 hours with Social Site Manager pages...just a long list of stuff it appears as, none of it accessible.

  • I'm trying to wrap my head around the "groups" for the new e-com platform. What is that about? It sounds like maybe a classified section, yes - no?
