As I told you there are a lot of new features that have been announced. And so that it's not too heavy to take, I innovated with a new format lister which allows to soften the mass of information.
For Weweb, no conference is planned yet, but the teams are still working on new features that you will like.
They have developed a new Xano plugin. A complete Native integration with Xano that allows you to create the collections you want.
It also integrates new custom settings for pagination. They allow for example to paginate your backend and reduce the number of elements loaded by a page.
At Airtable some new features have been implemented.
Interface : New fields and elements
They have improved their interface, it is now more powerful and simpler, with the addition of the calendar element, the ability to duplicate block constituents and the addition of button elements which makes the tool more interactive.
A new field has been implemented, sharing with collaborators. You can notify them and mention them. It is also possible to mention non-collaborators. You can limit their actions and select what will be visible or not.
Airtable X Miro
It also announces the arrival of a new integration, Miro, which allows you to connect your brainstorming to databases, this allows us to transform brainstorming into concrete plans. This data synchronization can save your teams time and allow you to be more efficient.
New functionality to create and realize more manageable automations. New visuals, ability to preview, test the automation and your dependencies in some click. Automation is now more precise.
It will soon be possible to manage all your automations, your tests, your improvements in one click.
FlutterFlow offers us several small improvements. You can now preconfigure color themes. It also integrates the sub-collections which allow to order your documents in a hierarchical way. It also adds dynamic links, it allows to direct any users to a defined location on your application.
Three new widgets have also been implemented. The first is the addition of line graphs. They are customizable and allow you to add features just as customizable.
The second, allows you to put in one click a shifted view, a view that can be found on several social networks like Instagram or Pinterest.
The last new widget allows you to ensure the BtoB with a signature widget that can be downloaded.
Bubble shares with us this month's update and reveals their new feature: drag and drop which works on the editor canvas. But also a new user interface for opting into experimental features. Moreover, they increase their after-sales service by offering a level 1 service open 24 hours a day.
Notion develops its integrations. It adds visuals of Pitch, GRID, HEX and Amplitude files. The files can be modified in real time. For GRID for example, graphics and calculators are interactive on Notion.
It also adds Census, Rootly and Bardeen.ai integrations. Notion integrates more and more tools and allows us to continuously enrich our workspace.
Now you can create your own overview links with Notion API. This dynamic link will be visible every time your link is shared on Notion.
Now let's talk about Softr :
They are launching a new feature, the Startup Founders Community that works on an invite-only basis and allows you to grow your network and create events.
To improve the community, they also add a collaboration component. A simple comment space that can be kept by recording notes and that will allow us to have feedback directly on the platform. The component is synchronizable with Airtable which will allow to store the comments in a database.
Softr develops a new setting in the signup blocks. You can now restrict subscriptions to specific email domains.
They also allow us to remove magic links when they are no longer useful to you.
We quickly present you the new features of Webflow.
It adds a new feature for roles. It allows you to limit the access of each designer and collaborator you add.
Webflow improve the loading time of the CMS publications of your sites. A very important point that made us lose a lot of time every time we wanted to publish something new on our site.
They have also improved the deletion options and allow us to delete an element without having to reload your entire site.
The last new feature is the improvement of the IDs. The Webflow teams have developed an option to detect repetitive IDs in your website elements. No more unwanted duplicate IDs, they are identified immediately and avoid possible bugs.
Discoveries of the month : AtomicFusion & NocodeDatabase
This month we have not one but two discoveries of mine. Two extension tools to Bubble.io. They allow to improve your development performances.
Atomic Fusion is a freemium tool that allows you to store and share your development components and designs with your collaborators. It is the ultimate library that allows you to continuously improve your work.
