October 2014 Product Updates

We are delighted to provide a brief recap of the updates implemented during this month!

The XML API documentation updated and available in German

Some weeks ago, we updated our XML API documentation. Reviews can now be ordered by review rating and by date, in ascending or descending order.

You can also show reviews between custom date ranges. The API can return reviews before a given end date, after a given start date, or between a date rang. It can also return all reviews since a given number of months (i.e. show all reviews from 48 months ago).

Additionally, you can specify the number of results returned, i.e. show 10 reviews at a time.

Last week, we extended the API with a new language filter and translated the documentation into German. To make use of the new XMP API features, please contact the Support Team.

New Channel for the Social Media Monitor: Instagram

In addition to Facebook. Twitter, Google+, YouTube, Foursquare, and Flickr, the Social Media Monitor in Review Analytics now also gives you the results for Instagram postings.

Widget: design update for Widgets with 50px height

In August, we updated the Widget design used to publish reviews on your website. We completed the final phase of this update allowing for a smaller Widget design with just 50px height. If you wish to select a small Widget for your website, simply select it in the Widget-Generator by reducing the content from “content to be displayed.” Reduce to “display total of reviews” and “display total number of portals,” then you can check the function “use minimal height.”

New front-end Languages: Serbian and Swedish

We have extended the number of front-end languages from 12 to 14, adding Serbian and Swedish. These languages are visible in parts of the system that your customer sees such as: invitation emails, the Widget, the certificate, and the Facebook application.

We hope you enjoy the updates!
