Components are here! 🙌
Take your content modelling to the next level with components. With our new, eagerly awaited feature, you can create a library of reusable components and save heaps of time when working on the most flexible GatherContent projects ever.
We've got everything you need to get started:
Components are available to all of our Start, Scale and Transform plan customers.
Have you ever wanted to upload your files to a project, not just an item? 🤔
Well, now you can! 🙌
🥁 Introducing our new assets feature that allows you to upload a file directly to a project. Now you can seamlessly add files to your content items from your project's library of assets.
Not only that, but you can get a real-time view of your asset's usage across the project.
Visit your Files & Media folder to find out more.
Today is the day we release our asset library (on items) to all of our amazing customers! 🙌 🎉
Once an asset has been uploaded, you can add it to any item that you need to. Saving you the job of having to upload the same asset over and over again. 👍
To find out more, check out our super friendly help article. 😄
Hey, guess what?? 🤔 💡
We've just released our new item editor loading strategy to all of you wonderful GatherContent users! This means that items will initially load 10 fields, and 5 more at a time as you scroll through the item. The result of which means that your items will load much faster. 🏎️ 💨
🎉 After a successful BETA release last month, we have now rolled our new template renovations to all GatherContent accounts.🎉
You will now see our new shiny new Structure page, with a Template tab in the sidebar.
🔔 Hear-ye Hear-ye🔔
We've just released our Template Renovations 🏗️ to a closed BETA group. You'll notice the top-bar has lost its old "Templates" link and gained an enticing "Structure" link instead. What's more, you now have the ability to quickly view and remove unused templates to keep your project work nice and tidy.🧹
We hope to roll this out to all accounts in the near future. So, keep your 👀 on our What's New page.
We've recently released our new look fields! All you lovely people should now be seeing these in your projects, there is no additional functionality, but we think it looks great. 😎
We've fixed a bug where whitespace (eg tabs & indented text) which had been copy + pasted into a GatherContent field would not display, but were sneakily still there (just hiding 🙈).
In practice this means you may now see some additional tabs & indents in your text fields. They were actually always there, we just didn't show them before. Also this could cause an issue with character counts being wrong, and they will now be correct!
Our export to docx functionality was beautiful in a mother's eyes, unfortunately others could be forgiven for disagreeing. But we've scrubbed it up and now you'll find a whole new export to docx function in the migrate tab of a project. Now everyone agrees that our docx exports are beautiful 🌳`
Ever wanted to split your template up into multiple sections, but the number of sections needed to vary? Well now you can: Introducing repeatable fields, so your item's author can decide how many sections are needed.
Head over to your template, go to a text field's settings, and make it repeatable. Make it repeatable. Make it repeatable.
The fixed formatting toolbar is now live and in action across all accounts! With this new layer of writing bliss ✍️ , you'll be able to see your formatting options at all times while gleefully creating your content! 🎉
