May was a VERY exciting month at Passion. We released tons of new updates.
So, without further ado, let’s break them down.
To see these changes, it’s important to note that your app needs to be up-to-date. You can check whether your app is up-to-date by going to your Passion Dashboard > Sales Channels > Apple App Store (for your iOS app) or Google Play Store > Setup (for your Android App).
If the version number you see is anything lower than 3.7, you need to click on the ‘Submit for review’ button, and then follow the steps explained here for Apple App Store and for Google Play Store.
Here are all the things you can now do inside your app with our latest update and a look at what’s to come:
✅ Add new courses & edit existing ones directly from your mobile and web app
✅ Update your lesson thumbnails
✅ Customize the styling of buttons inside your lessons
✅ Share links to content & communities
✅ Upload community videos up to 500 MB
Add new products & edit existing ones directly from your mobile and web app
The first big change is that you can now add & edit products to your app directly from your mobile and apps.
This is how it works:
Note: You can only access the new features directly from your web and mobile app. They won’t be available in the PassionProducts section of your dashboard. In the future, we will be adding new features to give you more control over your content & users directly from your mobile and web apps without having to access the dashboard.
Update your lesson thumbnails
We've structured the thumbnails in the form of cover photos for your lessons and you can edit them along with the other course details. In the future, we're going to give you the ability to choose whether you want this image to show only as a thumbnail or both thumbnail and a cover photo. Here's an example of an app with updated thumbnails:
Customize the styling of buttons inside your lessons
You’ll also notice some new functionality in the button widget in your app. The existing button widget now offers:
- Alignment options
- Styling options
- Sizing options
So you can make those calls to action in your content really stand out.
Share links to content & communities
Another feature we’re adding with this release is the ability to copy and share links that bring people directly to your:
Just go to the course/lesson/sequence you want to share and click the 🔗 icon in the top right corner to copy the link. Here's how that looks like:
It’s not just content. You can now copy and share direct links to:
- Specific Communities
- Specific Channels
To do this, tap and hold the community channel you want to share and then choose “Copy link” from the menu at the bottom of your screen.
More to Come In Our New Mobile App Builder
These changes are just the beginning. We plan to enable you to edit everything directly from both your web app and mobile app—including pricing plans, themes, metrics, and more.
So, whenever you edit something in your app, you’ll be able to see the change in seconds, directly in your app.
We’re excited about all the things we have planned for our new app builder, and we’re delighted to have you on this journey. Stay tuned for more updates ❤️
