The latest release of the Widen Collective happens this Saturday, Jan. 20, and we've got some exciting updates to the app that we thought you'd like to know about. Read on to see what's updated!


New document viewer

To give you a better experience when viewing documents, we’ve updated the tool used to preview PDF and Office documents as well as Keynote files in the Widen Collective and through share links and embed codes. When you view these documents, you’ll now:

  • See a darker background canvas to match other areas of Collective

  • See a sidebar showing page thumbnails for multi-page documents

  • Have the ability to search within, print, and download the document from the viewer


Storage charts

In the Insights app, you can now once again group storage charts by asset group.


Resolved Issues

  • The issue with share permissions you select in the Live Editor not applying to sections has been resolved.

  • The issue with public portals not loading after a title is added for a color palette section in the Live Editor of the Brand Portal has been resolved.


New top and secondary navigation

With the latest Workflow release, you’ll also experience an updated top and secondary navigation in the app. This navigation will be rolled out to a few more apps throughout the next few months.

Deliverable drawer updates

You’ll see some user interface updates to the call to action items for each deliverable. The updated call to action buttons make it easy for you to quickly see what you need to do for the deliverable. We’ll be making some additional UI changes to that page in the near future.

Updated My Tasks Statuses

We’ve made some tweaks to the names of statuses under My Tasks so that you can look at a deliverable and quickly know what you need to do with it.
