The Builder 🔧
  • A new version of the Appcues Builder Google Chrome Extension is available. When you update to the new version, you now have the option to launch the Builder automatically (when navigating from Studio to Builder) instead of having to click the extension button each time. Read more for additional details.
  • You might have noticed a helpful new Banner in the builder - it's there to remind you when a Pin experience you’re currently working on is already published and live.
  • We made it easier to remove embedded video content within your Flow.
  • We've also improved Pins performance to guarantee that they will reappear when a user is quickly navigating back and forth between pages on your app. 🎉
Mobile 📱
A new Survey Content Block has landed! Woohoo! 🙌
Text input
 is now available for use in your Mobile Flows. Here's the scoop:
  • Several input types are supported: Text, Number, Email, Phone, Name, Address, and URL (these different types are useful for changing the keyboard layout and autofill when focused).
  • You can choose to display as “short answer” and “long answer” as well as define a maximum number of characters.
  • You have the ability to set if the survey question is required and change the associated error message (and color).
  • You can also style the survey question and the input box, including text and placeholder colors.

  • Also new, select a Device Type from the Device Dropdown Menu to preview your Flow in the corresponding size. The list dynamically shows presets that pertain to the flow's app type. That means it will show either Native iOS or Android presets. For frameworks such as Ionic, React Native, and Flutter, all device options will be shown.

Mobile SDK:
  • [iOS
    ] Includes a patch update that provides an option to opt out of iOS Universal Link support via initialization config. Ionic apps do not handle universal links in a compatible way by default.
  • [Android
    ]  Support to expand to full screen on embedded video content. Also includes updates to better support minification during build. We recommend updating if using these specific features. 
  • [Ionic Capacitor
    ] & [Flutter
    ] Updated to include native SDK 1.1.1 updates noted above. iOS Universal Link support is now disabled by default, with an option to explicitly opt-in. We recommended updating to avoid any issues with link buttons not working in flows on iOS.
  • [Segment-Android
    ] Segment plugin for Android updated to include native SDK 1.1.1 update noted above. Improved the initialization logic - we recommended updating to improve stability around SDK initialization.
