January 2022 Release Notes

Kicking off Q1 2022

Happy New Year! 

The promise that Zesty.io has made to customers in 2022 is to deliver more marketer real tools that reduce the need for engineering cycles and to empower non-technical stakeholders with more autonomy. The response we’re getting so far from all sides is a fist-pumping, “Yes!” While we work with continuous improvement led by our customers, this is really the call of the market at large. 

Zesty.io delivered on this promise early with the introduction of Duo Mode in December, a way to gain real-time visibility into edits made on-page. 

As our initiatives for enhancing the marketing product continue forward, Zesty.io actively requests feedback from customers and users to ensure we’re hitting the target on needs. If you’re someone who’s familiar with our platform and would like to share your thoughts, we’d love to hear about them here.

Below is a quick summary of this month's product enhancements. Check out The List below for more details. If you’re waiting for a status update on a bug, enhancement, or feature request,  all of these are available via our publicly accessible Manager UI GitHub repository and Accounts UI GitHub repository.

January Summary

  • 2 Enhancements

  • 6 Bugs Fixed

The List

Manager UI

  • Enhancement: When using Duo Mode, a new widget that contains related content item links; live, preview & instant API - has been added. We removed bulleted lists from the view to avoid clutter. This also restructures Active Preview to move blur overlay on a dirty state in-app to avoid blocking controls.



  • Enhancement: When the API returns a 404 not found response for a 7- content item, which typically indicates the record has been deleted or never existed, a not found view appears instead.

  • Enhancement: We hid Duo Mode to enable the user to more easily access the settings. 



  • Fix: Drop down cutoff has been fixed: 

  • Fix: Removal of soft content lock redundancy. We removed a modal appearing when a user is editing a content item and they refresh their browser and see the content lock modal. This is unnecessary if the modal is warning against the current user editing the content item when the same user does not have another tab open.

  • Fix: To avoid confusion on generating the preview link we added text to the field for heightened awareness on what is being copied. 



  • Fix: Avoiding being thrown into an infinite loop when a related item has been deleted and no data is returned to display a content item where all the related values need to be resolved. This was corrected by using a one-time useEffect on component mount for one-to-one, many-to-one content items and internal links. 

  • Fix: In the Manager, an erroneous duplicate on key save hook causing an item edit view has been removed. 

  • Fix: On the reorder navigation, the scroll got confused and made it difficult to use when lots of content appeared in the reorder nav. This has been corrected and behaves as expected.
