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.

  • My Home Page has completely disappeared. Blank space. It is also disappeared in the dashboard - no modules showing up.

    • Okay it's back now, ye were just testing my heart, weren't ye ? :)

      • Hello Anam!

        I am very sorry, we have experienced some issues with new storage, which have caused pages to disappear. We did our best to eliminate the problem as fast as we could, and we hope it won't happen again. 

        Best regards,

        The NING Team

        • You are perhaps still having issues with your new storage. the Latest Activity feed has been broken for days and I cannot update modules on the Home Page in the Dashboard. It says ''Enter a valid URL'' after I save. The place feels a bit unstable back there in the dashboard.

          • Hi Anam! 

            I apologize for the "Enter a valid URL" error, you just need to make sure that after you make all necessary changes on the page, this field is not empty - http://take.ms/K8DYo

            If you put there a URL you will be able to save your progress. 

            Looking forward to your reply!

            • But what URL will I put there? It never happened before, what am I supposed to write there?

               

              Edit - Okay I just wrote ''homepage''. and it worked, but why did it suddenly stop?

               

              And are you aware of the problem with Activity Feed, os it general or just my site?

               

              Thank you for your help, Anastasia

              • Hello!

                It is usually just "home" by default, but you can put basically anything. 

                Regarding the Activity Feed - could you please specify, what updates are missing? Cause I tested it a bit and seems like new comments, status updates and uploads appear on the feed. 

                Best regards,

                • It's working now, Anastasia, it wasn't working for the last 4 days - and now the old posts that were invisible  before showed up. So whatever glitch there was, has fixed. I will keep an eye on it. Thank you.
