New updates and improvements to Frill.co.

  1. Merge Ideas

    New Feature

    No matter what you do sometimes duplicate ideas creep through. Well now you can merge ideas together to keep your board nice and tidy.

    The winning idea will adopt all the losing ideas votes (but not the comments).

    Get started by clicking the Merge button in the admin panel on any idea.

    Merge ideas

    When people submit multiple ideas that are really the same, a way for the admin to merge those and perhaps clean up the text without losing the original votes and submitter info.

  8. We've just launched our paid plans

    Announcement
    Release Notes

    It's been a while since we made an update. Mainly because we took a small break from cranking out new features to building the commercial engine for Frill.

    We are launching with 3 plans...

    1. Free
    2. Business
    3. Lifetime deal

    On all paid plans you also have the ability to purchase Add-ons.

    What's an Add-on?

    Add-ons are groups of similar features that give your Frill account some extra power.

    Currently we are working on 3 Add-ons:

    1. Unlimited Ideas - Do I need to explain this one?! 🀣
    2. Privacy - Private companies, Anonymous Users, Multiple authentication methods.
    3. White labelling - No more β€œPowered by”, Email white labelling, Custom Domains.

    Fully featured on all plans

    All plans will come with all the core features as well as many more we are either currently building, or in planning.

    Were you a Founding Beta Tester?

    If you were, then thank you for helping us test and build Frill.

    You'll never get a bill from us and have a lifetime account for free. You rock!

  9. Sort by Trending

    New Feature

    Sort by 'Trending' is now the default setting on all boards.

    As Edward, who suggested the feature, says below, this allows great ideas to rise to the top, not just the latest or most voted ideas.

    8

    Add additional sort option: Trending

    Add option to sort by trending ideas, perhaps by default. Gives momentum to current ideas and keeps the focus of conversation.

    We hope you like it!

  10. No more Gifs!

    So apparently you hate the "You Rock" Gifs.... That's fine... we can take a hint! (We're a bit tired of them too!).

    You can now turn them off here. Thanks David!

    7

    Make the You Rock gif optional on submit

    Not sure I want my enterprise B2B customers seeing that on each submittal. It's "funny" but not really necessary. I would say just bring the user back to the idea or the place to submit more ideas. Perhaps that can be an optional item in the backend you can toggle on/off. If always on, let me set my own animated gif and message.

    Hide from Google

    We have a whole load of features coming out to help with privacy of your account. This is the first of many features we are working on. You can now hide your Ideas board from Google here.

    Better Email Notifications

    Your customers can now choose which emails they want to receive. And you can also do that here for your Frill account too!

    Archive Ideas

    Some ideas just need to be put to bed, but not killed. archiving ideas means that an Idea is no longer searchable and it doesn't show in the main list. This is great for when an idea is shipped for example. We are working on more granular idea management as well as Merging which will launch soon.

    Archive completed ideas

    I’d like the option archive ideas so they don’t show up in the list. It would be quite nice if they still appeared in search so people knew they were already built.

    Update: UI update for adding ideas... We've made it easier to dismiss the suggested ideas that popup.

    Bug Fix: Fixed a bug where draft Announcements were triggering a notification in the widget

    That's all folks! We'll soon be launching our paid plans and SSO. Watch this space!
