So Notable has new features! What are these features? Why and how did they come about?
Capture by URL
Our mantra here at ZURB is a''Design for peoplea''. While evaluating our own product we came to a conclusion that an easier engagement for Notable is crucial to have. Having an easier way to get information into the system is a must to have for an application. Hence a'' our Capture by URL feature was born. Capture by URL is an easier way to engage people at first, everyday ordinary users would still prefer the Notable toolbar for the capturing needs.
This feature allows you to capture the website by simply typing the URL of the site. There are two ways to use this.
While you're logged into Notable, type notableapp.com/sitename.com into the address bar and you can capture from any browser.
Youa''ll see the following screen:
Feel free to wait for the capture to happen, or navigate to Home page. Youa''ll get a notification on your homepage that the new capture is compete. That is all!
You can also reach the Capture by URL feature by clicking Capture by URL in the right hand sidebar of your homepage on Notable
Youa''ll get this screen below, simply type the URL in the field and click Capture! Thata''s all!
We realized that having an ability to encrypt URLs and have content privately shared is a huge bonus for folks. In many cases we did not want the website feedback on the project we are working on with a client become public. Thus, we added the private and public URLs.
For every post you create on the site, you have a public or private URL you can assign to the post. Private URLs will not be indexed by Google and other spiders and are kept confidential. You have to have a login to Notable in order to view them. Public URLs on the other hand are open to Google and other spiders and you do not need a login to view these.
To assign a URL simply click on the captured element with your workspace set to open it up. To the right youa''ll see a''Public URLa'' and a''Private URLa''.
Simply select the a''Direct Linka'' option under Public or Private a'' thata''s all!
After putting together a set of screenshots for our client we quickly found out that a widget to display the set works and looks much nicer that just a plain URL. Hence, widgets were added.
Here at ZURB, Jonathan used the widget functionality in his blog post deconstructing CSS for Atebits here. There are different types of Widgets you can pick from the list as you can see here.
Simply choose the widget you would like a'' thata''s all! Feel free to click on a''See examplea'' to check out how the widget looks before you grab the HTML.
Price Plan change
We learned that some companies just have a few folks and a jump up to 10 users as the minimum plan is a bit steep for folks. To make Notable more accessible for folks, we added a new price plan to accommodate folks with less users. As you can see we have a new $24 Basic plan with 5 users and 5GB of space, and we also have unlimited workspaces for all plans with a 30-day free trial on all accounts.
These are just some of the new features that we have added, there is much more exciting stuff coming. Ita''s a bit hard not to spill the beans on some of the stuff, but for now it has to remain secret. If you are willing to guess what new features which will be added a'' dona''t hesitate to email us.
As always—please, please, please give us feedback on these new features! We are waiting to hear from you, our private release invitees, the people who are excited about this product - How do you like what wea''ve done so far? What do you want to see changed or modified?As always a'' thank you for all the tweets!
