Custom Onboarding

First impressions are meaningful – which is why we’ve put the power of creating that impression in your hands. 

Read our blog post or feature page to get a better understanding of what you can do with this capability.

Custom onboarding cards are a great addition for brands and organizations to welcome new members into the community.

New Login & Registration

The importance of an amazing login and registration process can NOT be understated. We’ve made serious improvements to make the experience more “fool proof” and complete – a massive undertaking that included a complete redesign and new builds for both iOS and Android.

An improved user interface for onboarding gives community members a better login and account creation experience

Improved Video Quality

From Live streaming to upload and captured video, we’ve improved our video quality by more than 3x. 

Coming soon: The recording of live videos will be available for playback in under 3 minutes.

Custom Domain Support

For those who want to amplify their brand even more, you can now run your Honeycommb web application on your very own custom domain. 

Reach out to your Success Manager to learn more or to get your custom domain up and running.

“Position Statement” Field

There are many parts of the experience that require a short, clear, concise message that informs the world of what your network is all about. You can edit this statement at any time in your Control Center.
