Introducing Weekly Product Release Notes

KatharineS

The XM Platform is constantly updating and improving. Weekly Product Release Notes serves as a way to record recent updates to the product with links to the support site. As an added bonus, we'll include support pages that might've had big edits clarifying how existing features work.

What kinds of updates are included here?

  1. New products
  2. Changes to existing products (both big and small)
  3. New support pages and other step-by-step guides

Since this category is more focused on product updates than the support site itself, we will exclude tinier site updates, like rewording a sentence, changing a typo, or a minor screenshot change. However, if a small support site change majorly affects workflow or understanding of functionality, we try to include it.

How often will posts go up on this category?

Weekly on Wednesday.

How do I subscribe to these updates?

You must be a registered member of the Qualtrics Community before you can subscribe. Luckily, anyone with a Qualtrics account can sign up!

  1. Once you're logged in, navigate to the Weekly Product Release notes category.
  2. Click the bell icon in the upper-right.
  3. Select your subscription preference. We recommend only following Discussions, not Comments (otherwise you'll get notified for every comment left on a post, instead of just new posts that come up).

You can select one of the following subscription preferences:

  • Follow: This option will allow you to follow the category without receive email notifications, and filter your Recent Discussions list.
  • Discussions: This option will allow you to follow the category and receive notifications when new discussions are added.
  • Discussions and Comments: This option will allow you to follow the category and receive notifications when new discussions and comments are posted.
  • Unfollow: This option will appear once you choose to follow and subscribe to notifications, and will allow you to unfollow and disable notifications.

You can also sign up for email notifications!

    great idea! i find changes on the support site pretty annoying in the sense that "i know i saw it somewhere here, but now it is gone" :angry:

    @KatharineS A weird request, if i may... Can the dates in the update post headers be written in a different format than mm/dd/yyyy? I am from Europe and find them extremely confusing.. Can they be in a text format at least, like February 12?

    @MsIreen That is a perfect request, and I'm a little embarrassed I didn't think of it myself :) I'll edit those dates so we write them out with a named month, e.g., February 12, 2020.

    Hi @KatharineS, I am"following" the Weekly Product Release Notes, but I am not receiving any email updates. In my Notification Preferences I have enabled Email for all items I thought were relevant in the "General" section. Do you know which item I need to allow Email notifications for in order to receive the Weekly Product Notes by email?

    @brianj Under your notification preferences, "Weekly Product Release Notes" is the category, and you'll probably want to subscribe "Discussions" rather than comments. I'll add some more steps to this post to clarify for the future! Please let me know if you have any further questions

    Hi, I can't find the "Weekly Product Release Notes" in my profile / notification preferences either. How can I subscribe to be notified? Thanks!

    Hi @justinrz and @sonja - we are looking into this. In the meantime, I'd recommend subscribing to New Product Features, the parent category of Weekly Product Release Notes
