Features

HubSpot Integration

What is it?
With our HubSpot integration, we use engagement data to monitor the traffic of your microapps. You can easily view and access microapp engagement by individual contact, by source, or specific microapp, all within your Hubspot account. To get started, configure the connection in your Tiled account settings and choose which microapps should leverage the integration.
What’s in it for you?
Imagine seeing Tiled microapp engagement data when viewing HubSpot Analytics. Capturing traffic analytics for microapps can be leveraged to trigger the following lead generation workflows from HubSpot:
 • Enrolling contact into a nurture sequence
  • Sending individual emails to contact
  • Email, SMS, or text alerts sent to sales reps of interaction
  • Including interaction in lead scoring

Video Player

We are enhancing the video tile by adding a new option to display the video controls for the microapp viewers. The new controls bring a familiar browser experience and enhance the level of interaction with videos.
What is it?
A new 'show controls' option is available for uploaded videos. When choosing the new option within the video tile flyout, your viewers will be able to independently control the play/pause, volume, fullscreen, and picture in picture settings.
What's in it for you?
When viewing the microapp, expect a familiar video player experience to easily consume the content at their own pace and have options beyond play/pause.

Welcome to our December release!
We are ending the year strong by bringing more capabilities to improve microapp creation. We’ve introduced the following features into our product:

  • Access to 1000+ fonts
  • Accessibility within the builder
  • SSO for Tiled plugins

Features

Access to 1000+ fonts

What is it?

Microapp creators can access any Google fonts within the microapp builder when configuring a text tile.

What’s in it for you?

Ultimately, we are giving you more font options to help form the look and feel of your microapps as well as an improved UI/UX configuration experience.

If you are following company brand guidelines have a better opportunity to maintain your visual identity using the text tile.

If you want to leverage instances and the dynamic text field, you can now find fonts that match or closely match your company-approved fonts.

Accessibility within the builder

What is it?

Our vision is to introduce a communication platform and medium that everyone can benefit from. We are working toward making microapps accessible starting with microapp tiles.

Microapp creators can add alternative text and titles to microapp tiles using the flyout in the builder.

Microapp viewers can use screen readers to read the configured text description in the HTML.

What’s in it for you?

By configuring your microapp tiles to be accessible, you will be allowing an extended population of users to interact with them and meeting one more accessibility requirement.

SSO for Tiled Plugins

What is it?

If your company leverages single sign-on when logging into Tiled, you will be able to be authenticated the same way with our Tiled plugin for Adobe XD and Sketch.

What’s in it for you?

You can quickly and easily log into the Tiled plugin without having to remember another password.

You can now leverage using the Tiled plugin for Adobe XD and Sketch using your company SSO and can stop using a workaround to access the Tiled plugins.

How to get started?

Look out for the new 2.1.0 version of the Tiled plugin for Adobe XD and Sketch
