Haulix Weekly Update #76 – “Me fail English? That’s unpossible.”

Hey there, everyone. Welcome to our website. If you’re a regular visitor then you already know this week has been like any other. If you’re new, we’d like to thank you for giving us a shot. This post is meant to summarize our recent creative efforts, so it’s a bit different than the content we typically post. That said, there’s still a lot you can learn.

Each and every weekend we like to take a brief break from our regularly scheduled programming to update and reflect on everything happening at Haulix HQ. We are far more than a music blog, as many of you already know, and posts like this give us an opportunity to share more our efforts with all of you.

We do not have any development updates to share this week, but we did want to pass along a reminder about last week’s big reveal.

‘Public Promo Groups’ is our latest release. Here’s how it works:

Promo groups are containers used for organizing your promos on various screens that you and your coworkers view.

Every one of your contacts has a “My Promos” screen where Haulix compiles all promos from all senders who sent an invitation to that contact.

You can now control how your promos are organized on that screen by making one or more of your promo groups “public.”

From your Promos screen, click on the Groups button.  Checking the Public checkbox will make the respective group appear on your contacts’ My Promos screens.

This feature is only a visual enhancement. All permissions that you previously established work the same way.

The promo order you establish in the group (drag n’ drop) on your Promos screen will get mirrored on the contact’s My Promos screen.

As for the blog, I think it’s safe to say this has been our slowest week to date. There is good reason however, and that is the launch of our ‘Haulix Live’ 2015 tour. Ferris State University welcomed staff member James Shotwell to their campus this week, and while he was on site James’ time online was extremely limited. He had a blast though, and the students he met were incredibly excited to discuss the state of our industry today. We’ll next be at Launch Conference in April, and we’re hoping to see more schools not long after that!

We did still manage to get some great content out this week, even if our quantity dipped. Here’s everything you missed:
