Connect Change Log (2016-11-21) This week we’ve made our first official release to Connect since going open beta at Unite! Thank you to everyone participating on the site and in the forum. So far, your participation and use of the site has far exceeded our expectations, so thank you So blah blah blah, what’s new Mark!? Inviting others to Connect You now have the ability to add current of former colleagues to your projects, even if they aren’t on Connect. Giving credit where it’s due helps builds your credibility — it shows that you are honest about your role and contribution to the work, which in turn makes people feel more confident about your skills and integrity. Adding Contributors to your projects is incredibly easy: just post or edit a Project — you’ll see ‘Add Contributors’ below your project images. Now you can also add and invite Contributors via email, even if they’re not on Unity Connect yet. Sharing your projects is easier than ever We noticed that many of you were directly linking to various stores if you had published a finished project. Now all you have to do it edit your project and append it with your links. [SEE ATTACHED IMAGE] If you’re an Asset Store developer you’ll love this part! Any Asset Store Asset imported to Connect will come with a default Asset Store Icon and a “Buy it on Asset Store” link in the project. So make sure you sync your work with Connect so that you can engage your customers and potential contracts in a brand new way. Lastly, if you’re a social media user now you can use FB, Twitter, or Pinterest to share your projects - improving your discoverability and potential network. Be proud of what you’re creating and let the world know! Various Fixes We also fixed the following issues brought up via forums and our support channel: Remote OK should now filter in Jobs as expected Fixed a bug that wouldn’t allow users to publish a project when uploading a video Added ‘Following’ tool-tips around the site to improve visibility of who you are following Added viewcount to projects Extend character limit for education (Sorry to the “Bachelors of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science” majors) We now show the LIKE button as green for visibility. You can also LIKE a project from the Discover Projects view. Fixed some minor issues with search Squashed some email bugs Last but not least, Typos Last our next release should be 2016-11-28 so keep your eyes peeled!
