LiveTiles SharePoint Seurat 1 Product Release Notes

LiveTiles SharePoint Product Release Notes: Seurat 1

Page load times just got a lot faster with this week’s first product release in our Seurat cycle. To make sure your pages are as speedy as can be, go into Design view and hit Save on all your existing pages to have the backend optimisations applied.

We gave the product a good backend scrub down (no pun intended), so be sure to read below for all the usability improvements and crushed bugs.

Improvements:

Remove Widget ID field from Twitter and Twitter Slider tiles In order to reduce confusion with the Twitter and Twitter Slider tiles, we have removed the widget ID field from these tiles. To add Twitter to your page, all you now need to do is add in the twitter handle to the tile.
Update landing page support link to point to help.livetiles.nyc The landing page support link now points our Knowledge Base at help.livetiles.nyc
Enhanced Page Import/Export To allow you to be able to share every aspect of your pages between your site collections, we have improved the Page Import/Export to allow you to bundle up your images into the product when Importing/Exporting a page.

We have also added backend changes to make exporting and importing pages a smoother process overall.

Add fallback URLs for third party CDN libraries To prevent further issues from third party integrations, we have added in fallback URLs for these integrations to make sure that you are able to use every aspect of LiveTiles at any time.
Move Wireframe mode to the bottom left We are improving the overall canvas experience by moving the Wireframe mode toggle to the bottom left of the screen.
Office 365 with LiveTiles performance improvements We want to bring you the best experience possible. As such, we recently went through and optimised our product to improve loading times. With some optimization around the way we load code onto our pages, we are proud to announce that we have improved loading times based on internal testing by approximately 10%.

In order to take advantage of the performance improvements on your pages, you will need to resave any existing LiveTiles pages to have the above optimisations applied—just click into Design view and hit Save, no need to rename or change the saved site location.
