One advantage of MACH architecture is the ability to continue to grow and evolve your stack as your business needs change.Presumably you have already added a CMS, but what’s next? Personalization? eCommerce? Translations? I would love to discuss what’s next.
Hi everyone! I’m a PM here at Contentstack working on the new Automation Hub product. I would be really interested to hear more from anyone about any user stories you have surrounding automations. Do you employ any automations in your existing workflows? What tasks are you currently automating? Think about your current business processes related to content. Are there any repetitive tasks that could be automated? Can you identify any multi-step processes that could be streamlined? Are there any tasks currently performed by humans that could be made more consistent through automation? Humans sometimes forget things or make mistakes. :( Do you currently have any “middleware” (such lambda functions using web hooks) that helps automate workflows or integrations between vendors? Any other thoughts about the Automation Hub or automations in general? I would love to hear from you! Click on my profile and then use the “send message” button and let’s chat.Thanks in advance!!
Contentstack’s new experience for content creators and editors is designed to make it easier to generate, edit, and manage content.What has your experience been? How have Contentstack’s tools helped you create or edit content? In what areas would you like to see improvement?
Hi there,We’re enjoying the new entries functionality of being able to move and resize columns, however it looks like search has gone backwards in this release.Example. - when we search for a term (even an exact match term) the result set do not reflect the search term used. Refining it further to use content type does not have any effect on improving the result set.Anyone else experiencing this?ThanksTim
A common use case in Contentstack is querying for a content entry by URL.If you have multiple possible content types, an efficient way of finding the right entry is via the GraphQL API. You simply query all the possible content types with the given URL and only the correct type will return a result.Here is an example of such a query:
Hi,We have a complex website where entries for different content types can be created under any URL prefix.We’d like to know if it’s possible to get an entry via Delivery API / SDK based only in the URL. This is because, when a page is requested to the app, the frontend has no way to know which content type that entry belongs to, just its URL.We’ve seen examples, like in the starter app, where you know beforehand that any entry under /blogs url prefix will be of a known content type. Well, this is not our case, we can have a sitemap similar to this:http://myhomepage.com/info/abc http://myhomepage.com/info/defWhere /abc and /def can be entries based on any of our page content types.We checked the API documentation, but every endpoint returning entries requires the ‘content_type’ parameter.Thanks!
As a Contentstack ‘superuser’ since mid-2019, i have been heavily involved with building and designing schema. That also means i’ve used the old UI a fair amount vs the new UI. I’d be interested to know if people have been using the new UI, what they like and what they think could be improved. Are there are any tricks you have encountered you would be willing to share?
Hi, I am quite new in using in the new interface, but getting used to it. ;-) However, I am struggling a bit with the new Search. For our purpose, it very often is not specific enough. For example, looking for a registered user of our website who is using a gmail address, we would find any gmail users when looking for firstname.lastname@example.org. Another example: If I search for a text in a content block, get too many results,I am not able to specify my search by adding a second word. I will get the message “Cannot use multiple Text fields”. Do you have any plans to improve that behaviour?I miss the old fields on top of an individual content block whihc I found more intuitive. Thank you.
When dealing with the ever present requirement of Personalization, there are as many solutions as problems. What are you all doing to personalize content delivery? Not just for web, but when looking across channels, does that mean that the personalization strategy needs to change a little? How do you handle this?
