Spring Cleaning

Released on 
February 23, 2022

The beginning of the year was pretty exciting at Claap with many new features that we wanted to release for a long time (Polls, Slack Integration, Labels, etc...).

March was the time to take a step back and improve existing features that went unnoticed, and prepare for the public launch (stay tuned 🙃)

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all the users that participated in improving those features with us (see best practice below).

Your help is gold 🙏

The Claap Team

PS: We recently learned of an issue that prevented the Claap Chrome Extension from loading in full-screen mode. This problem was due to a bug in a previous version of Google Chrome, which has been fixed in the latest update. If the problem persists, you should force the update of Chrome in your Chrome settings.

New Inbox

We’ve redesigned our inbox system to make it more intuitive and faster to manage your notifications. Read more here.

As a quick reminder, there are 3 ways to manage your notifications:

  • Claap’s Inbox: easily check claaps with new activities and access them in 1 click
  • Slack: receive & reply to comments from the Claap App in Slack
  • Email: receive notifications in your inbox

You can easily control notification settings depending on your preferences. Read more on how to do it here.

New Description

Sharing context about a claap is very useful to increase engagement and make people want to watch your latest recording.

Adding a description was a bit hidden before so we decided to move it on top of the comment sections to make it more visible.

Profile Pictures

You can now automatically import your profile picture from Slack 👵

Users that have viewed your claap are the ones circled with a pink stroke.

Best Practice: how to use Claap to improve existing features with your power users

To improve our existing features, we often ask the feedback from our users with Claap. This has helped us solve frictions before writing the first line of code. We wanted to share this best practice with the example of the new Inbox design here.
