Release notes - April 26, 2016



Here are the main changes we included in the new version of the Scoop.it platform launched on 4/26/2016:

All products


  • New design of the topic menu
We made a simpler and more integrated topic menu to highlight the most important features. The settings part now goes under the "Topic settings" (see screenshot below) for an easier configuration.


  • LinkedIn Group Publishing update
LinkedIn recently informed us that it is restricting developer access to LinkedIn Groups by shutting down the API.

According to the LinkedIn team, Scoop.it has had access much longer than most: restrictions began about one year ago.

Please know that this is NOT a Scoop.it decision but a LinkedIn decision and in no way affects publishing to LinkedIn Profiles or LinkedIn Company Pages. LinkedIn reassured us on their intention to grant us access to these features in the long run. Their decision only affects LinkedIn Groups.

Given the above, we will be removing access to LinkedIn Groups from software this week to prevent any publishing challenges per our discussions with LinkedIn. We will of course let you know if and when access to LinkedIn Groups will be made available again.
