At Little Warden, we like to ask what our customers love and hate about the service, it could be via email, Skype, Survey or shouting at them from across the room at conferences.
The two largest issues people have had with Little Warden recently are Adding URLs is complicated and I only want Little Warden to notify me in THESE specific circumstances.
Now, being a small development team we can only work on one large thing at once, we’ve been working on the Adding URLs is complicated to make it easier, so here it is.
Step One – Add Your URLs
We’ve made this nice and simple, a large box for you to just paste everything you want to track in.
Step Two – Select your settings
Now here it gets interesting! You can carry on just using your default settings (which are displayed in the box) OR you can use some previously “Saved Settings” (ooh that’s a new feature, yes, yes it is) or you can select all the settings from scratch again.
Let’s do that
Step Three – Choose your Checks
We redesigned this page a few weeks ago to make it easier to read and configure so we won’t spend too much time on it, just know that we’ve done it so it’s easier to add more checks down the line (hint hint)
Step Four – Advanced Settings
Now this bit is a little bit complicated BUT you only have to do it once per setting!
With this page, we are starting to tackle some of the common things with LW that people react to differently (mostly redirects) so we are giving you the choice to say, how do you want Little Warden to handle them?
You can also edit the notification settings and page load settings directly from here.
Step Five – Savin’ and Namin’
Last up, we can now make the settings we’ve chosen the default and give them a name for later (i.e. important sites we care about checks)
Step Six – gogogogo
and that’s it, you are done.
For the first time ever you can now have several different saved settings which save different things such as notification emails, custom content settings and page load type.
We’ve got a few more enchanments of this sytem coming in the next week or two *cough* projects *cough* editing settings *cough* before we move onto the next big issue for our customers, Granular Notification Settings.. wow that just sounds exciting doesn’t it.
Thanks for reading and have a great day!
