Community platform

Written by:

If you already are a CMNTY customer, then you know that we update your community platform every 2 weeks. Our releases may include UI improvements, bug fixes but also completely new features. In this quarterly post, we’d like to summarize a few of the highlights of the past months. 

Mobile Community, API, and Zapier

Last quarter we continued our work on our Mobile Community and Integration capabilities.  For example, we improved the navigation of our mobile view on iOS devices, and through Zapier task automation you can now also trigger on member freezes and member sign-offs.
