Hey there! 👋🏼
Here are some of the notable updates on Plio from the last month 🚀
New interaction in town: Checkbox questions 🎉
Creators, we heard you. Being one of the most requested features, Plio now supports Checkbox Questions, a.k.a. questions with multiple correct options.
We did support MCQ questions already, but it was restricted to having only one correct option. Creators have already started using it and we are excited to see the number of new use cases that it unlocks! 💪🏼
Customize your plios: A new realm 🔮
This one is big. Earlier, while designing plios, creators were restricted by the choices that we had made as developers, thereby restricting their creativity and flow.
Now, creators can finally configure their plios according to their needs. The first setting that we've added is for them to be able to disable the "Skip" button on their plios. They can choose to either change the settings for an individual plio, as well as set the default configuration for all their plios from the "Settings" button on the home page.
This really opens up a lot of possibilities for us to make Plio truly configurable. We are soon going to add more settings to give even more control back to our creators.
If you have more ideas for customizations that you'd like to make on Plio, we’re listening with our ears wide open 👐🏽
Copying plios across workspaces 🚕
This one is for our enterprise users. A lot of creators who work in teams begin by actually creating plios in their personal workspaces. However, once they are reasonably sure that they want to take up the enterprise plan, they end up having to repeat the entire creation process on their team workspace. This leads to a lot of wasted time and effort for them. But not anymore!
Now, creators will have the option to copy plios from their personal workspace to their team workspace with just a click of a button. Cheers to more meaningful ways of spending your time 😇
Bug fixes & Enhancements🐞
The platform is now 5-10 times faster after removing support for plio-analytics. You can read all about it here. P.S. - All of it came from reading a book 📒
While logging in using your mobile number, you can now keep repeatedly asking to resend the OTP if all your previous attempts have failed 🕵🏽♂️
A warning is shown if you are trying to update the video having a duration less than the timestamps of existing questions❗
Creators will now see a link to our Plio for Teams documentation page on the sidebar 🙆
You will see some new names on our release notes for this month :) We are super excited to see our Builders for Change Fellows - Gurleen, Saloni, and Manya - make their first contributions in this release!
We hope you enjoyed this month’s updates. If you are interested in becoming an early adopter of Plio and still haven’t signed up, what are you waiting for?
