StoryChief Updates 3 min read

We are pleased to reveal more cool integrations and fantastic features that will help you do what you do best - writing and sharing amazing stories. From an integration with Zapier and launching the StoryChief marketplace, to announcing weekly webinars, Slack as a channel and our Unsplash feature, here is an overview of all the important bits and pieces that we've been working on.

⚡️ Ready to Zap?

This Valentine's Day, we want you to connect with your loved ones - family, friends, and your most used apps. After a few weeks of testing, we are proud to announce that we are live on Zapier. ​Make sure to check out all the integrations that can automate your workflows. If you need any help with setting up, you can always contact us or check the documentation. 📗

📷 Time to Unsplash!

Visuals are pretty important, so the easier it is for you to add them to your articles, the better. Our latest idea-turned-feature is enabling you to do exactly that - integrate with Unsplash, a provider of stock images. You may have already heard about Unsplash, but here is a small intro: they are dedicated to sharing photography for free. With over 110,000 contributing photographers and more than 9 billion generated impressions per month on their growing library of over 810,000 photos, we are convinced you will find the perfect visuals to add to your stories.

⭐️ Welcome to the StoryChief Marketplace!

Last month we launched our own marketplace! 🙌 The StoryChief Marketplace is a central platform that allows you to browse through all available integrations with StoryChief. Stay on top of your collaboration flow with integrations to Google calendar, connect your leads to your CRM account, or share your articles on any available channel and content hubs. You name it, we made it. The goal is to centralize as much of your business activities as possible and to connect you with your most used apps to save time.

Interested in adding a new integration? Drop us a line and we'll get back to you as soon as possible!

⛓ Hey, ho, let's anchor

With anchor links you can refer to earlier or later parts of your story, greatly improving the experience for your audience. They just need to click on the link, and in the blink of an eye, they will be transported to that section of text. Anchor links are now available within the StoryChief editor.

📆 Campaign Updates

Now you can filter your stories in a campaign. Also, when adding a new story you can also assign it to a campaign.

👀 What's new?

To help you keep up with the updates in our product, we have added a new "What's new" sidebar in the app located in the top-right corner. By clicking on it, you will be able to see all the feature releases in reverse chronological order.
