A while ago we launched the home titles feature. We are going to add a bit more flexibility in the way titles are being displayed and how many characters can be used on the tiles within Studio.
With video lookbooks on our platform, you want to send traffic to this content to increase sales. We want to make this easier by having a new option in the home merchandise manager. You will only have to select a video lookbook and we will make sure it gets displayed on your home wall.
We recently created the possibility to upload launch images and account images in Studio. This would create a ticket for our services team. Now we want to implement dynamic launch images that automatically update in the app. This way, launch and account images become independently manageable within Highstreet Studio. It will also be possible to schedule these images.
With this project we will be redesigning the home merchandise manager in Studio to make it a lot easier and more efficient to create and maintain home walls for multiple storefronts. We want to make it possible to publish and schedule rows instead of entire home walls, improve the way you preview them and make it easier to reorder your rows.
We are exploring how we can automate the process of replacing splash screens and account images in the apps. The first step we will take is building an interface in Studio where these images can be uploaded. We are also looking in to automating the entire process, where no app update is needed for these images to be changed. This will be considered for a future project.
We currently require specific size restrictions for most of the images you upload in Studio. With this improvement we want to give you more flexibility when it comes to uploading images. Size requirements will become less strict and Studio will help you to crop your images to the correct size.
We are going to improve the way we do quality assurance within our Studio team. In this project we are going to create an automated test environment and improve the testing capabilities of push notifications. This way we can do better testing when we release a new feature or fix bugs.
We care a lot about realistic previews of the content you create in Studio. The device previews in Studio give an accurate way of previewing content, but the best test is to see your content on an actual device. We are going to work on a preview functionality for home walls just like you can already do for lookbooks. Just scan a QR code and preview your home wall on your device.
In Studio, a lot of the interactions needed to set up content is happening inside popovers. We want to invest some time in improving the code and design of these popovers. This way they will perform better and it will be easier to interact with them.
We are steadily updating the code base of Studio to make it more reliable and to improve its performance. A bigger project is to refactor the content previews of your home merchandise and lookbook content. We know how important it is to have previews which are an accurate representation of how your content will be displayed in the apps. With this refactor we aim to make these previews more reliable.
