New GDPR Feature: Updated Custom Code Area

April 24, 2018 Uberflip Customer Success

We will be updating the custom code features within our platform, making it easier than ever for your front-end developers to customize your Uberflip experiences and connect particular custom tracking scripts to data collection consent groups. 

This article includes:

  • An Overview of our improved Custom Code features
  • What to expect in your Hub with our Custom Code updates

 

An Overview of the new Custom Code updates

Up until now, we have given customers on our Elite and Enterprise packages the ability to add their own custom code to their Hubs. This has enabled marketers, many with the help of our talented onBrand team, to customize the front end experience of their Hub to match their brand and create a seamless experience between their Hub and their website. 

But, after customizing hundreds of Hubs and collecting feedback from our customers, we discovered many ways that our custom code feature could be improved to better meet the needs of front-end developers. This included the ability to:

  • Easily insert code specifically into the header, footer, or body of a Hub
  • Easily enable and disable specific code blocks without the risk of affecting other code
  • Keep code blocks separate from each other to reduce errors

We also saw a need, with the updates in global privacy regulations, to make it easy for marketers to tie particular code to user permissions. For example, only enabling a tracking script on sessions where the user has opted into the company’s privacy policy. 

Our team is thrilled to announce a huge leap forward in our Custom Code feature, making it easier than ever for your front end designers to customize your Uberflip experiences.  

Here are some of the big changes you can look forward to with the updates:

  • A brand new code editor!
  • The ability to create your code in separate “Blocks”
  • The ability to place custom code within the header, footer, or body of your Hub
  • The ability to apply custom code based on visitor permissions


What to Expect in the Hub with our Custom Code Updates
