Happy New Year! For this month's update, we’ll recap some of 2022’s biggest feature releases and give you a sneak peek into what's coming in 2023.
What happened in 2022:
There are tons of updates to mention, but here are a few that we think were total game-changers:
Users on our newly introduced paid plans now have the ability to sort their MarkUps into Folders. You can organize your Workspace with Folders by team, project stage, client, or whatever structure makes the most sense for your workflow!
2022 was the year we introduced Video MarkUps. Now, instead of screenshotting each frame of your videos to leave feedback, you can simply drop a pin at the exact timestamp.
You can see how your website will look on a tablet or smartphone by toggling between device views. Your comments will stay pinned in the same device view that you left them, so there is no confusion over which format the feedback relates to.
Pins & comments
There were a few updates we made to make leaving comments even simpler!
- Too much noise in your MarkUp? Simply filter comments by mentions so you can direct your attention to the feedback left specifically for you!
- Connecting pins to comments in the comment panel is much easier now. When a pin is selected, the corresponding comment is highlighted in the sidebar, giving you a clear visual cue as to which comment the pin is associated with.
- Accidentally dropped a pin in the wrong place? You used to have to delete them and start over, but now you can click and drag a pin that has already been placed to the correct spot.
Increases to content quality & resolution
PDF CMYK Colour Conversion - colours now convert properly
Increases to upload speeds & limits
Multipart video upload (files bigger than 5GB)
Now you can copy your MarkUp’s URL directly from your browser’s search bar and paste it into your preferred channel to share it with a contributor. Sharing MarkUps has never been easier!
Team management tab
We’ve improved the way you manage who sees what within your Workspace. From the Guest tab under Teams, you can see a list of everyone who has Guest access to your Workspace. From there, you can remove their access, so they will no longer have access to any MarkUps.
What’s coming 2023:
Looking to the future (and beyond!) we’ve got big plans on the horizon for MarkUp.io. Check out below for a sneak peak:
Contextual email notifications
>This year, we’re continuing to revamp our email notifications by adding visual context to each email. Soon you’ll be able to see where the comment was made in MarkUp.io without having to leave your inbox!
Our team is working on an improvement that will allow you to create multiple MarkUps at once or add feedback to a different MarkUp while a large file uploads in the background.
Hover to view comment
If you’ve worked on a MarkUp with tons of pins, you know how time-consuming it can be to visually connect the pin on the canvas with the actual comment in the side panel. With this new feature, you’ll be able to view comments and replies directly on the canvas, making your review even more efficient and intuitive
And DRUM ROLL, please! … App integrations
We always want to keep the platform simple and user-friendly. However, we also want to allow our users to integrate MarkUp.io with the tools they already use (think Slack, ClickUp, etc.). Keep your eyes peeled for some exciting announcements on this soon!
On that, we say a big goodbye to 2022, and an even bigger hello to 2023. We can’t wait to help you make your digital feedback even smoother this year!
