August 2020 Features and Updates

Back with another video walkthrough of this month's features and updates! And if you prefer it old school, you can still read through the updates we made last month, below the video. 

  • For staff simplicity: If a staff member has recently published a blog post on uConnect, it will show up on their Staff Page profile under 'Recent Posts'. But now, you have the option to hide recent posts on staff page profiles, by navigating in your dashboard to Publish > Pages, then find and edit your Staff Page. Below your list of staff pages users, you'll see a check box 'Hide Recent Posts'. Check that box, hit update, and recent posts will be automatically hidden from all staff page profiles! 
  • For secure streaming: We heard from many of you that having the ability to automatically hide Zoom links on events would be helpful. So we built that feature! You now have the option to have all Zoom links hidden on events, even if the link is written in the event description. Plus, you can customize the language that will go in place of the link! Once the 'hide Zoom links' feature is turned on, new events that are pulled into uConnect from your CSM will have the Zoom links hidden as well.

    If you'd like to turn this feature on, just reach out to and we can do that for you right away.

  • For thoughtful thumbnails: The recommended size for a video thumbnail has been updated to 800x450px to better match the standard video size ratio of 16:9.  


🐛Fixed a bug causing the date picker for events to be partly off-screen on smaller monitors 

🐛Squashed a bug that caused 'Hide on Front Page' and 'Internal RSVP' setting to be lost after a CSM sync 

🐛Eradicated a bug causing some formatting (like font size) to be lost after saving changes to alert banners 



If you have questions about any of these updates (or anything else!), hit us up at
