CommuniBee March 2019 App Update Notes

CommuniBee Update March 26 2019

CommuniBee just keeps getting more awesome! This release: streamlined community setup and user management, plus server optimization for faster performance.

This morning we published our latest rounds of enhancements to the CommuniBee dashboard and server. Here is a quick overview of the changes:

Community Configuration Streamlined

Previously, your community was set up on one page, and it got to be a very long page. We’ve broken it up, grouping sections together in a way that makes sense, like all things affecting appearance going under Configure Layout, so the app preview is always visible

Configure Layout

This is where you select the features you want to enable in your community, and what you want to call them. This naming you choose will also be reflected throughout the dashboard now (i.e. you might change Amenities to Services)

Security Settings

If you want more control over who can join your community, this lets you specify one of three options:

  • No approval required: all users immediately have access to your community
  • Approval always required: users enter a pending state and need to be approved
  • Email Domains Auto Approve: if users email ends in one of the specified email domains, they are automatically approved

User Management

Bulk Edit

Quickly change the access level of a group of users by uploading a list of email addresses (one email per line) and selecting the access level to apply

We’ve also added a ‘PENDING’ tab to manage not-yet-approved members

Performance Optimization

We’ve made a lot of progress optimizing Comunibee. Recently, we’ve improved the load times, responsiveness, and server load capacity. That means that your community can handle thousands of users on the app without missing a beat!

Upcoming: Questionnaire Simplification

One change we’ve been promising is to simplify the questionnaires set up. The new, simpler version will not be compatible with the current app, so we are disabling the questionnaire button for a few days so incompatible questionnaires are not created. The new questionnaire feature will be available shortly along with an update for the app that includes several other minor tweaks and fixes.
