PPA Festival 2017 the Best one Yet

This year’s PPA Festival was the best one we’ve been to yet, and it really felt that the consensus was that this was the best one overall for everyone. Tobacco Dock was a great venue, albeit a bit hard to get to like many of the larger London venues.

 

Some of the highlights for us below in Tweets.

 

The first seminar we attended was by Bruce Daisley, Vice President for Twitter in Europe. His talk on the evolving office was great and highlighted that flexibility and

Affino 8 Coming July 2017

Affino 8 is nearly here. We’re now able to pull together all the ideas we’ve had for launching Affino 8, so it is an exciting moment for us to have it so close.

 

We’re currently working through the final sprints towards having Affino 8 feature complete. We will be launching one final Affino 7.5 release which is the third of the major events releases, which will be with you soon. The one after that will be Affino 8.

 

We’re down to just five major elements

Tip: Filtered Lists

Affino allows you to very quickly create a filtered listing, in this case a seminar programme.

 

The Ocean Media Group digital team needed to create a conference programme quickly for the Housing 2017.

 

The solution was to create a standard article channel, apply a slightly customised Skin, import the topics for the seminars, import the seminars, then simply turn on the Scoped Search on the section with the relevant topic filters.

 

The extra sprinkling of fairy dust came

Tip: Make the Most of your 404 Page

Tip: Make the Most of your 404 Page

I love a good idea, and really like the new 404 pages on the Credit Strategy site.

 

Instead of showing a sitemap, which makes sense on most sites, they will show you the latest headlines and Tweets when you get lost. A great way to engage readers who might otherwise browse elsewhere.

 

Experience it here: Credit Strategy 404.

Affino 7.5.14 Release - Events Evolution

This release could also be called the ‘I love it when a plan comes together’ release. It’s the first of three significant event related releases coming out over the coming months, and although there are some great individual improvements around events, directories, CRM, account management and ecommerce, the big wins are all around the greatly improved event workflows and automation that is now possible.

 

Core to the event improvements are the new Advanced Events (the

Affino2016Annual Review
Affino SaaS 2016 Highlights

2016 was the year that saw Affino evolve faster than any previous year. In 2014 we rolled out approximately 280 user stories over the year, in 2016 we rolled out 1,264.

 

So much ground was covered in 2016 that it is very hard to pick a top 10, so we’ll give you the big picture highlighting the many key developments. The primary goal of 2016 was to transform Affino’s CRM capabilities and that was met with hundreds of improvements throughout the Affino CRM. For details on the

Affino Channel Types - the Responsive Roadmap (Updated)

Affino has multiple Channel Types as the foundation for how you set up and manage your Affino sites. In many cases each Channel type is an entire application suite provided by competing solutions. It’s only in Affino that these are all brought together and can be managed seamlessly.

 

We have spent the past five years working through the process of migrating these all to responsive, which has been a very significant undertaking. This year is when we complete the migration with the
