New Features : Like, Awards, Extract, News Feed & Dashboard
Some more new features released this week! We have just introduced CollecOnline Classic and Premium (details of these services in this article) yet many new and useful features to help you manage your collection are still coming in for free. In addition to the advanced features, we continue to developp free upgrades and functionalities in order to make your experience always more enjoyable.
Introducing a “Like” button
We are pleased to announce the release of a much-anticipated feature, the famous "Like" button!
As collectors we love to share our treasures and discoveries, because we preserve a piece of history in a form of an object that fascinates us but also because sharing is caring and we all are nice people around here. Pressing "Like" on an object is a great way to congratulate its collector, keep track of a beautiful artefact or an interesting discovery, and also bookmark it to save all liked object in Favorites.
In order to show appreciation, encourage participation, reward active members and -of course- simply fun, you can find a few awards to unlock on your profile page. Apart from the Pioneers badge, which grants certain privileges to our oldest and most loyal users, the other badges are only of honorary, fun and decorative value! These will all be available in 3 colors (bronze, silver and gold) depending on the achievement.

The News Feed
Even if at first glance nothing changes on your news wall, its operation has been completely revised to allow you to follow the activity of your network even more easily!
Everything happens at the level of the "News: All" button on the top right of your wall.
You can now choose to filter precisely the events displayed on your wall that we have segmented into 3 types:
- Events in your network: new object, new collection, new relation
- Your notifications: a comment received, a new "Like" on your items, a request for connection
- Your actions: find easily your last actions whether it is an object creation, a comment left or a mention I like given
You most likely noticed the Blogs tab on your left-hand menu allowing you to view CollecOnline's articles, but also to write and publish your own articles.
You now have the possibility to add translations to your articles in the 6 languages already available on the platform, namely: French, English, German, Spanish, Portuguese and Italian.
At the bottom of your profile you can now find a graph showing the distribution of your objects by category. Here is the opportunity to discover your collection in a new light!
