Norby Community Newsletter – No. 11

Hey Norby Community,

A brief announcement: we just launched Drops by Norby on Product Hunt! Click here to show your support and feel free to share with your team, friends, and fam. We greatly appreciate the support! 🙏.

This week, we’ve been focused on refinements and enhancements to some core Norby functionality – and we’ve added a few long-requested features. Let’s dive in!

✍️ Custom Field Types 📃

Many of you have asked for the ability to include checkboxes, dropdowns, and other form elements in your custom fields, and as of last week you can!

In the Registration tab for any event or drop you can now add custom fields with different types. We currently support text areas, checkboxes (multiple selection) and select dropdowns(single selection). If there are other form elements you’d like to see, just reply to this email and let us know.

👀 All in the Details 🎨

We’ve added support for inline images and image resizing to all of the rich text editors in Norby! That means you can now add inline images to your:

  • Event signup pages
  • Drop signup pages
  • Email campaigns
  • Text blocks
  • Profile

Try adding a GIF to your next email campaign or panelist and moderator profiles to the signup page for your next event!

🌈 Life in Technicolor 🍪

We’ve made a bunch of small usability improvements throughout Norby over the last two weeks that should make it easier to navigate – and in particular, to handle large amounts of content and data:

  • You can now publish events, drops and links directly to a feed when creating them.
  • We’ve tweaked the Norby dashboard and added some tooltips and explainers throughout the toolkit.
  • All your different content types are now color coded and coordinated throughout the toolkit
