Campaign App - What's Changed?
Creative Services recently launched a new Module Library App - the Campaign App. In the past, we sold a custom version of the Campaign App, and due to it's popularity, we made the decision to turn this app into a Module Library App. Apps that live in our Module Library are more easily supported and updated than stand alone custom apps. In order for an app to be successful in our Module Library, it must be as configurable and flexible as possible. For that reason, we made several improvements and additions to the new Module Library version of the Campaign App. This page is designed to help you better understand the differences between the two apps (we no longer sell the old version, so this infomration is intended primarily for those who may have the old version of the app and are interested in learning more about what has changed)
Differences & Improvements
Appearance (Front End)
- There is no longer an accent line between the title and caption text.
- The fonts are no longer hardcoded. They now pull from the template, which means the app will seamlessly match any design.
- On breakpoints, photos scale proportionately rather than getting significantly cropped on the left and right.
- On breakpoints, the caption moves below the photo rather than overlapping it.
- Opacity controls enable the creation of solid color campaigns with no photo showing.
Configurability (Back End)
- The new app has a Settings button where most configuration options live. This enables the user to set their colors, opacity, caption alignment, etc., in one location rather than having to enter it for each individual record. This provides an improved editing experience with organized, intuitive configuration options, and saves the user considerable time when creating multiple campaigns.
- The new app includes all previous configuration options plus many more – app name alignment, title/caption max width, button corner radius, caption corner radius, color and opacity options, ability to embed a video, sticky background photo option, etc.
What stayed the same?
- The new app is the same price as the old one (one time fee and annual maintenance fee)
- Both apps have the same general layout and components - image, title, caption, button.
- Both apps are accessible and fully responsive, though the new app has more flexibility with color and opacity and is therefore easier to make color contrast compliant.
- Both apps offer similar alignment options for the caption text box.
- On the back end, you still have the same basic options to create new records, edit, sort, delete, etc.
Will the custom version of the app continue to work and be supported?
