Below we detail product updates for the FirstUp platform (Studio, web experience, and the mobile app) scheduled for release in March 2021.
Mobile Experience: Change ‘My Feed’ to ‘Latest’
Before this March release, the three named feeds included in the mobile app were: My Feed, Featured, and Trending. In the web experience, the Latest section displayed the same content as the mobile app's My Feed. After this update, both the web and mobile app will say Latest for the feed of personalized content.
Version Note: mobile app users do not need to update their apps, this will go into effect for all versions immediately upon release.

Mobile Feed Names (After March Release)
Named Feeds as listed under the top left menu icon on Web
Web Experience: Switch Communities
Now users on the web experience can switch communities easily from the top left menu, as users already can on the mobile experience. All user roles have this functionality.
After clicking the top left menu on the web experience, a user can click Switch Communities.
The user will then be navigated to a screen listing the different communities available to them.
The user can click the desired community, and they will be logged out of the previous program, and will be prompted to login to the new program.
Sharing Behavior Updates
Shareable videos shared to Twitter from the web experience can now playback directly on Twitter, rather than linking back to the SocialChorus web experience. Shareable videos and articles shared from the web experience also have improved previews across all social networks, displaying titles, descriptions, and thumbnails.

Studio: Quick Link Usage Report
Administrators and Program Managers will now be able to view Quick Link usage in a new Analyze report. The Quick Link report captures usage patterns and trends across your Quick Links, including which Quick Links are accessed the most, total clicks during a period of time, and unique users who clicked Quick Links. This will help you determine which Quick Links are most useful to employees. You can segment by employee attributes, like Department, Location, Role, and more.

Studio: Content Amplifier Report
Administrators and Program Managers will also have access to a new Content Amplifier report, for visibility into Amplifier performance. If you have multiple Amplifiers, you can compare usage, viewership, and engagement across Amplifiers.
Compare performance across different employee segments, Amplifier templates, embed locations, and more.
Note: Amplifier report data is limited to activity by “recognized” users - i.e. users who have logged into the Amplifier or web experience.
