    Daniel F reacted to Charles in 4.5: Zapier Brings Integration with Over 2,000 Web Apps   
    It's not as bad as it seems. You're only charged if Zapier does something for you. Example that we use:
    We use Github internally for software development. If something is being added to the software that any of our staff thinks will need extra testing in beta, they add a special beta-test label in Github.
    Every single action we do to Github is sent to Zapier for processing. We have rules in the Zapier Zaps that look for our beta-test label. Only if it's seen does an action happen.
    So in this case, Zapier might analyze 100 things we do in Github a day but may only take action on one of them (one we labeled beta-test). It's that one we get charged for.
     
    Also, the amount of really cool things you can do with Zapier makes it worth it. I'm not a programmer and I have really cool workflows in place that help bridge all the services we use at IPS to interconnect with our internal site (running Invision Community) so we all know what's going on.

    Indeed. Only the available Zapier integrations and your imagination are the limit.
    It‘s also going to open another level of integrations via the available webhook Zapier integration 🥰

    I am mainly interested in doing the internal automation for now. I.e. replacing the Rules app.

    We already use Zapier. Awesome to see an integration for it on the next release!

    I usually complain that most of your new features have great concepts, but just don't get delivered properly and end up not being useful. There is of course still plenty of time, but I have been very pleasantly surprised by how well implemented this looks, and I'm actually looking forward to rolling this out on my site!
    Thank you, and please keep it up!

    This is exactly the difference to the "anonym" social media, where nobody cares about you. If you do not have any "friends" or followers - you are alone there. In your community you can (should) care of your member, be personal, warm and hospitable. You will never manage to achieve it the same way in social media.

    Daniel F reacted to opentype in Master your community's lifecycle to increase your growth   
    I always see it as a literal “evolutionary” process. I constantly try out new “mutations”, i.e. features. If they turn out to be beneficial, I might put more work into them and make them more prominent. If they do not work, I scale them back slowly (e.g. by first demoting them in the menus) and remove them eventually. There certainly is a danger in adding too much stuff. Not just in regards to the software conflicts you will get, but also in the way you confuse your users. I even have tons of “display:none” declarations in my theme to hide stock functionality. Often less is more.

    Daniel F reacted to Florent Bouillon in The hidden cost of doing nothing   
    I was exactly in this situation a while ago, out-of-date softwares and server on a big community. Just because updating was a lot of efforts, and I always had bettor to do of the little amount of time I had. Then a server crash brutally accelerated the process, and I worked a lot to migrate on some brand new hardware and software, including migrating on Invision. All what you are saying in this article came true: better safety, better SEO, better engagement. Soon the statistics began to grow rapidly after years of stagnation (in particular on mobile), administration was much simpler and time-sparring, and I could enjoy developing much more complicated functions.
    So, long live invision 🙂
