The XM Platform is constantly updating and improving. Weekly Product Release Notes serve 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 be added to this category?

Weekly on Wednesday.

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" 😠

@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


Does this still exist? I can't see it?


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

Badge +10 estremf - Have you subscribed to the Weekly Product Release notes category? You'll have to navigate to that category, click the bell icon in the upper-right, and then select your subscription preference. Once you do that the Weekly Product Release notes should show up under "Followed Categories".

Badge +4! I missed that step. Ok, just went ahead and did so and was now able to see it as an option as a follow category.

Thank you!
