What is a Changelog?
Changelog is a useful tool that lets you publish updates to your users, and show them that you are constantly improving.
Good to know: You can integrate our Changelog feature directly into your app using the Changelog Widget.
How it works
Changelog lets you publish updates for your users to see in one place.
Your users can subscribe to your changelog by clicking the 'Subscribe to Changelog' button on the top right of your live changelog.
By doing this, they can stay updated with the latest enhancements via email notifications.
Creating a changelog
Creating a post
Go to Dashboard → Changelog
Click on 'New Changelog' in the top right
Add a featured image, title, and content
Select relevant categories for the update
Oh, and don't worry about your work getting lost. Our changelog auto-saves the draft for you.
Publishing and scheduling
Once your post is ready, you can choose 'Publish now' from the top right corner for immediate release.
You also have the option to schedule the update.
Click 'Schedule for later'.
Choose the date and time for the release, and hit the blue 'Schedule' button to confirm.
Migrating from other tools? You can easily backdate posts by opening the post and selecting the original release date from the upper right-hand corner.
Categories are beneficial for keeping your changelogs organized and user-friendly.
Head to Dashboard → Settings → Changelog
Click on 'New changelog category' in the top right
Enter your new category's name and click 'Add category'
There's also a possibility to hide the changelog from your public board completely.
For that go to Dashboard → Settings → Changelog
Select 'Hide Changelog'
Adding it to your app
1. Add a link
The easiest way to add a changelog is by attaching its link to a button or text on your page. This could be anywhere, from the navbar to the footer.
Just copy the URL of your live changelog and paste it where you'd like it on your page.
2. Changelog widget
The second way is to use our neat changelog widget to show the latest updates straight from your app.
You can see it in action by going to your widget settings and clicking the 'Open your preview' button.
