Invision Community Insight: Spring has sprung and the April Beta is out!

Recommended Posts

🌸 Welcome to this week's Invision Community Insight! 🌸

Thank you for checking in. I hope you have had a wonderful week! To those in the US or my neck of the woods (as some would say), Happy Spring! I enjoy this time of year and getting outdoors but I know those with allergies may feel differently. How about you? Does spring give you a spring or pep in your step or not so much? 


From the Invision Community team, this week ...


Current Happenings

Our April beta is ready for you!

As with all beta releases, upgrading your community is at your own risk. Please make sure you backup before pressing that button! This beta specifically contains changes to the PayPal and Stripe integrations. Please proceed with caution if payments are core to your community. 

Here is what is slated for the April release, version 4.7.9. https://invisioncommunity.com/release-notes/


Live Topics is ready for beta release in April. Feel welcome to join that discussion and excitement.


On Deck

iPhone notifications will be available when Apple releases their latest iOS update later this month. 

You will receive notifications regardless of whether or not you are in the browser. How exciting?!


Bounce Management is coming in May. 

For Cloud customers, we are adding the ability for you to view reports on bounced/complaint emails, take action on member accounts (purge them or mark them as no notifications), and unblock emails that our platform may be refusing to email. Cloud customers can catch that conversion here: https://invisioncommunity.com/forums/topic/472318-coming-soon-email-bounce-management/#comment-2936928



Our next scheduled event (which will use our Live Topics feature) is our April Release Chat. Follow and add that event to your calendar so you can join us.

Yesterday was peak bloom in the Washington DC area for the Cherry Blossoms and it was near 80 degrees!  Talk about an incredible day!

I love spring and I love the chance to sit outside and have dinner with a gentle breeze rolling by. 

Thanks for this update!  The format is great with here’s what’s next, what’s following it, and what is in the pipe.

Awesome! We made it up to DC a few weeks ago and only saw a handful of cherry blossoms. Still pretty but were hoping we were a bit closer to the peak. 

It's warm here today too! Just got back from a walk and was not expecting to be sweaty. 😰
