Supercharging the home for your publication
this new dashboard rules but I think mine is broken...the numbers on it are way less than the example image can y'all fix that??
Hopefully someday can we switch for dashboard views for newsletters like mine that aren't seeking growth or revenue.
More like meaningful connections, help and learning from each other.
Honestly, it's become a shock when a tech company actually improves features for its users~~thank you so much for this ongoing evolution of tools!
Thank you for continuing to innovate and making this the best place for writers to share their work.
When the metrics are presented in this way I can see that my growth is beyond what I thought it was. I needed this boost of confidence today. Thanks!
I like the clean new layout and the dedication to adding more stats to help with growth!
I think it'd be interesting to see how a particular post, the newest one or even an older one, compares against others. For example, "This post got X% more likes than your average post" or "This post had your highest open rate," etc. There could be a section called "Standout Posts" collecting a few of these.
Even cooler would be to know how my posts are performing compared to other newsletters in my category / of my size. That's something I'd be really curious to know.
Thank you again to the dev team for continuing to make this /the/ place to be for writers.
NICE!!! I am brand new to Substack and I am so impressed with the system. Thank you so much for these updates! Very sexy indeed 💖
Substack is arguably the only platform I've seen that keeps getting better and better in such a good pace.
THIS IS VERY SHINY.
The new dashboard looks pretty nice. I think it would be great to be able to customize it.
I'm like to get rid of all stats pinging my face when I open it up. I'm interested in posts, what's scheduled, what's in drafts, etc. I realize a lot of folks want this, but I think it would be great to have all the stat stuff on a separate page where you could click it if you want, or just let it be.
Thanks, this is nice.
I would love to see some improvements on the "Subscriber report". Currently it is only possible to see the top 5 countries (and the rest in the map). Not sure how hard would it be, but I believe it would be helpful to be able to extend the full list of countries, so it is possible to identify how diferent countries are ranking (and even growth on each individual country over a period of time). I suspect this would be equally usefull on US states for the American audience.
Another suggestion would be to have a Subscriber report by source - It would be nice to see which social platforms / websites / substacks publications are driving the most new subscribers.
I know this can be a lot and take some time, but please consider it :)
Some of this is really helpful, but I would much rather have the scheduled posts on the home page than the drafts.
My first reaction was "Oh, no - not yet another change to get used to!" But this works, admirably. Of course, the proof of any pudding ... but top marks thus far: it's clear and the images - which help me greatly to navigate my posts - are all there as a constant vade mecum. Well done SS.
I love this.
Impressive! Truly appreciate how coherent your roadmap is.
