Hey there! We're excited to share the latest Sleekplan updates with you. In this December update, you'll find all the new features and improvements we've been working on. We hope these changes will make using Sleekplan even better for you. Thanks for all your feedback!
Improve the efficiency and effectiveness of your workflows. Easily extract and share important data with colleagues, or save it for your own record keeping. The new Export Feature is a highly anticipated addition to the Sleekplan settings. It allows you to easily and quickly export data from the Feedback Board, Changelog, User accounts and Surveys from your product to CSV. Export Settings →
New API Docs
Finally, our new, polished up API docs: We have completely overhauled and redesigned our documentation to make it more user-friendly and intuitive. The new API docs include clear and concise explanations of each endpoint and how to use them, as well as detailed examples and code snippets to help developers get started quickly. We have also added a new search function to make it easier for users to find the information they need. We believe these updates will greatly improve the developer experience and make it easier for users to integrate our API into their projects. API-Docs →
Auto Subscribe: Improve communication and keep everyone up to date!
With the new "Auto Subscribe New Users" option, any new users who create an account on your feedback baord will automatically be subscribed to receive changelog updates and notifications from you. This will help ensure that all of your users are kept informed about important updates, new features, or announcements. To manage their subscription preferences, users can simply visit their account settings and adjust their notification settings as desired. Auto Subscribe Settings →
RSS feed: Make it easier for users to stay up-tp-date!
We are happy to announce the addition of an RSS feed for the changelog. With this feature, users can now subscribe to receive updates to the changelog via their preferred RSS reader. This will allow your users to stay informed about new updates and changes to the platform in a way that is convenient for them.
To access the RSS feed, add /rss.xml to your changelog URL. I.e. https://demo.sleekplan.app/changelog/rss.xml
Today we’re thrilled to announce that we have added segmentation to changelog updates.
Show your users that you know their specific needs. Send custom changelog updates to different user groups. For instance, target free users differently to encourage them to upgrade, or send specific updates to different user-levels like Subscriber, Members or Admins.
Happy Friday y'all. We have some great news before you sign off for the weekend: The GitHub Integration has received an update, with some features you have been waiting for! As of today, GitHub integration can synchronize in both directions, from Sleekpan to Github and vice versa, on private an public repos!
To work correctly you may need to re-install the integration! Don't worry, already linked posts won’t get lost!
Happy Monday! 👋 We have a few updates and bug fixes to share with you, to help kick off the new week. Let's start with a few improvements and features that we have shipped recently.
To prevent the loading of external libraries, we moved all external resources from rsms and unpkg.co to storage.sleekplan.co. No need to give permissions to other libraries.
Setting SSO-tokens for the standalone page got a security upgrade. You don't need to set tokens using an URL parameter. Now you can pass tokens by doing a POST request or set the token as a Bearer token. Read more on our single sign-on docs.
The $sleek SDK has been slightly reduced in size and also received two new methods -
rebind() to rebind data-attributes and
shutdown() to turn off the widget and remove all HTML elements. Learn more about these two methods on our developer docs.
Until now, sending invitations to team members was a rather intransparent process - This is now a thing of the past! Pending invitations are now displayed on the team page and can even be canceled so that you always have an accurate overview of your pending invitations!
A new option to use separators has been implemented in the Changelog. Separator helps you to visually separate various parts of your release notes. This is useful for such cases when parts of a document are not connected and should differ e.g. by the type of information (Bug fixes, Features..).
To add a division separator you need to use the markdown syntax
Improved personal notifications will help you to stay up to date with your feedback community. Easily check new, unread and unopened notifications 👀
We have secretly introduced a few new features. Of course, we do not want you to miss out on these improvements. So here we go:
➡️ Importer: Import feedback posts, user accounts and, changelog updates via CSV file or directly from supported systems
🎨 Designer: A completely new experience when setting up your widget or standalone website. With the designer, you now get a direct preview of your current changes.
📊 Post stats: Advanced post statistics are now visible above each post (Starter or Business plan required).
Wanna guide your users to send structured feedback? Feedback templates can help you with that! Templates allow you to set a predefined text for each category that will be inserted on the post creation form.
We have improved the community moderation. From now on you can moderate comments as well as posts to keep your feedback community clean.
Bad Words List: In addition, we have introduced a bad words list. The list simplifies the moderation for you. You can define comma-separated words that trigger moderation. Other comments and posts will be approved instantly. This saves you the work of moderating every single post.
Quick Moderation Feed: While we are at it: Yes 😄! Finally, there is a simple way to moderate posts & comments. If you have enabled moderation in the settings, a new option will be available from your dashboard sidebar - a quick overview of all contributions that need to be moderated.
Hey y'all! 👋
Easter is over and the Easter-🐰 has come up with a cool new feature: Managing different audiences from one board is getting even better with segmentation! Now you can specifiy a segment for each category. This means: Only users matching a specified segment will be able to see posts, submit suggestions or receive changelog updates for a category. Email notifications for the changelog will only go out to subscibers matching a segment. With this, you can now serve different user groups via one board and display different content for each 🙌 Amazing, isn't it?
If you haven't set up an user segment yet -> Get started here!
Sometimes you write a comment that is important! You may not want to send notifications limited to subscribers. For this purpose, we have introduced two new options for @mentions: @all and @team
Both mentions - @all and @team - are restricted to team members only, so you can relax.. none of your users will spam the discussion with @all mentions! 😄
🆕 SORT COMMENTS
Easily sort comments by most recent and oldest. The new sorting function makes it easier to keep up with long and rambling discussions.
🆕 CUSTOM HTML
Add custom HTML to the standalone website (i.e. to include your own website header)
🆕 FEEBACK POST EXCERPT
Option to show a short excerpt on the feedback list. We have introduced a new option that allows you to display a short paragraph below the title - users can quickly find out what the post is about.
🆕 ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE
Organizational structure for enterprises. Manage larger teams and different workspaces easily via an organizational structure.
• Some minor design improvements for standalone websites
• Incredible performance update for standalone websites
• Open changelog updates in preview mode from the admin dashbaord
• New direct link to jump to the related changelog update from an CSAT-survey
• Bug fix that prevents the sidebar from loading on standalone websites
Previously, you were limited to the last 30 days for the dashboard statistics. That's a thing of the past! Using the new dashboard time range selector you can easily switch between 7 days, 30 days, 180 days, and 365 days for your statistics. Happy Analysing! 🤓
This feature is available starting from the Business plan.
Possibly you have already seen them in your comments section. Likes are a great way for you and your users to leave lightweight feedback. Likes can act as a nice and easy way to see if users agree with a comment or opinion. Of course, you have the option to turn off likes on your board at any time. Go to Settings > General > Feedback.

🐛 Bux fixes
Sleekplan comes with a default email layout and contents. But what's about using your own?
Create custom email templates & layouts!: We have shipped an update to our email service, that allows you not only to customize the layout of the email, but also to change the content according to your requirements. So that your emails fit in your brands' tone and style!
You can modify any of Sleekplan's customer-facing pre-made templates. Try it here: Settings > Email > Templates (Business Plan required)
Displaying popup only on specific pages
We added an option to show popups only when the user is in/ not in the defined set of URLs. The “Current Page / URL” Campaign rule is perfect if you want to show the campaign only to those visitors who are browsing (or not browsing) a specific page on your site currently.
Create different popups for different targeting groups
Create multiple popups based on different targeting groups, urls, etc. with specific messages.
We have completely rebuilt our admin dashboard with new. Now you have the chance to get all the important KPIs in one easy view. Plus, we have the percentage trend compared to the previous period in place.
Go off and check your metrics 🚀
