Hope everyone is having an awesome Friday and is excited for the weekend! Here's a few things we launched this week.
Better default Announcement URLs (aka slugs)
If you've ever forgot to explicitly set the slug when creating an Announcement, you've probably noticed that the URL looks like something https://your-company.launchnotes.io/1-b10233b1-59a3-47c9-969e-1443f66b2cfd. Not a great default way for the product to work.
Now the default URL for Announcements will be a URL-friendly version of the Announcement headline. So now, for example, if you name an Announcement "New User Management Tools For Enterprise Customers", the slug will look like https://your-company.launchnotes.io/new-user-management-tools-for-enterprise-customers. As always, you can override this to be whatever you want it to be.
[Coming Soon] An unread count on the widget
We're getting very close to launching a way to display an "unread" count on the Announcements widget. This can be a great way to give a bit of extra attention to new Announcements to get more eyes on what you're launching.

We'd love to test this with users so if you're interested and willing to hop on a quick call, send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org
