SocialBee has used Bugs Begone! πŸ›

 

Weekly Fixes

  

Our developer bees have been working hard to deliver a fresh round of fixes, right before the holidays! πŸŽ…

Curious about their progress? These are the main issues addressed this past few weeks:

πŸ’¬ First Comments for Instagram Posts are now shared correctly. Add your tags, insight, and everything nice!
πŸ”’ Customize for each profile remembers to display all profiles. A strong dose of memory-enhancing honey has been administered.
πŸ“Έ Adding images no longer glitches into a disappearing act! You can add images to your posts correctly now.

A few under-the-hive tweaks have been made too, helping our bees create sweeter honey! 🍯

TikTok, what's the latest trend? ⏰

 

New

  

Tick, tock, TikTok, it finally happened! 🀩

What does this mean? πŸ€” You can now share video posts from our platform, directly to your TikTok profile without the hassle!

Create your post, click Next, Next, Post and you're done!

Schedule Your Posts from the CSV File ⏱

 

Improvement

  

Importing your content from a CSV can be a tedious process, but it can add up to 1,000 posts at once in your categories! 🀩

To make your scheduling process faster & better, you can now also schedule your posts at a specific time from within the CSV file.

What's the catch, you might ask? None! All you have to do is:
πŸ‘‰ Download the sample
πŸ‘‰ Add the times in their specific format (yyyy-mm-hhThh:mm:ssZ)
πŸ‘‰ Run the import

Check out our help article to find out how this process works:
πŸ“ How Do I Import Content via CSV

With this extra step, once you're done with your CSV file, you can kick back and relax like Joey & Chandler! πŸ’Ί

Add Posts to a Category from Post History ♻️

 

New

  

Say you have a post on your social media that has been performing really well, but you don't have it in your SocialBee category anymore. How can you recycle it, without too much hassle? πŸ€”

Before, you would have to save the image, copy the caption start a new post… those are too many steps already!

Starting today, you can use our "Re-use this post" feature directly from your Post History! πŸ’ͺ

Minor tweaks for a better experience πŸ”Ž

 

Fix

 

 

Tweaks and minor fixes are oftentimes overlooked, but we think they can turn a frown upside down sometimes! Here are the latest changes made by our team:

βœ‚οΈ The cropping tool no longer has an odd-looking border;
πŸ”’ Links no longer disappear, no matter the combination of steps you take;
😳 After an embarrassing amount of explanations, Bulk Editor now remembers how to switch back to "View Items";
πŸ§™β€β™‚οΈ The Onboarding Wizard performed a remembering spell and now lets you resume your onboarding where you left off;
πŸ—‚ No matter how many profiles you add to a category, they are no longer covered by any buttons.

Another successful week of changes, we'd say! 🀩 What are your goals for this week? We're just curious…

Launching Posts Is Smoother Than Ever πŸš€

 

Fix

 

 

The biggest and most complex feature of SocialBee is our scheduling engine right now. Because of this, we work hard to keep it updated and add small improvements every time we can.

Here are some of our latest changes:
⏱Duplicating a post scheduled at a specific time will no longer copy the scheduling settings to the new post;
πŸ—Ί Viewing your upcoming posts in your Calendar View is no longer confused about the timezone you're sharing your content in;
πŸ›‘ Your license plan is no longer confused about how many profiles you can set to running;
πŸ—“ Setting up a schedule will let you select and deselect days without any limitations;
πŸ€Ήβ€β™‚οΈ SocialBee can now juggle (and post) more than 14 variations per item.

Hopefully, Ross keeps bamboozling Chandler, but no one does that to our scheduling tool! πŸ˜‚

Upgrades to our Instagram integration πŸ“Έ

 

Fix

 

 

Every day, we want to make SocialBee even better than it was before. Instagram is one of the most powerful integrations we have, but here are a few power-ups we've given it lately:

πŸ”– Tag, who is this? SocialBee can now display the people you've tagged in your photo directly from the profile's Post History.
πŸŽ₯ Ready, set, action! Video posts for Instagram now have a thumbnail in your Instagram's Grid
πŸ˜΅β€πŸ’« How many hashtags is this? The Post Editor will now tell you if you have over 30 hashtags in your first comment.

This is our bugs deployed and fixed dance. πŸ‘‡ What's yours? πŸ’ƒπŸ•Ί

Under the hood upgrades for our companion mobile app πŸ“²

 

Improvement

 

 

Posting content via Reminders means that a notification will be sent to your phone when your post is ready to be shared. From there, you'll have to follow through with a few additional steps to get it published.

🀫 Psst, you're not sure how do use the app? Click here to see how it works!

We've made a few changes, not the kind that any human or bee might see, but they're building up to better performance and more features in the future. 🀩

Until then, we'll be waiting by the phone for the next scheduled post. πŸ˜‚
