Introducing Pinned Stories and Story Filtering
A new way to organize your stories and your profile page on Vocal.
This week, we’ve made a few more changes to the Vocal network. As we announced in our last update, these next few updates will work together to allow you to enhance your Vocal presence and organize your profile exactly as you see fit.
At Vocal, we are constantly developing better ways to showcase your content and provide meaningful assets to aid your creative processes. Everyday we are committed to making Vocal the best place to create, publish, and share content across all media and genres. Today, we are releasing our latest update, which allows creators to more deeply customize their Vocal profile pages. You are creators, and so are we, so we know that presentation and design is key. How your profile looks reflects how you think and feel as a writer, an artist, a poet, a creator. Perhaps you have a favorite story, one that you wish everyone could read, but it’s buried on page 17 of your profile. Now there’s a solution. 📍
With this latest update, you can pin stories to the top of your profile. This will show everyone at a glance what your best work is, or what you want them to read first. To pin a story, navigate to any story on your profile and click the pin icon found in the bottom right corner. This will push that story to the top of your profile page where it will live front and center for everyone to read and enjoy. You can pin up to three stories in any order you'd like.
Alongside pinned stories, we're also releasing a filter to help sort and view all the stories you’ve written. That’s right, no more scrolling. The story filter will allow readers to see every story you’ve written sorted by community, publish date, and length, as well as alphabetically. To use the filter, you can select a particular community in the tool bar to see only stories published in that community, or you can use the dropdown to organize all the stories by their total word count or when they were published.
We’ve heard for some time that the community wants Vocal to help creators present their work in the best and most organized way possible. Our development team is always working to find these solutions for you. In the coming months, here’s what else you can expect from us:
📍More fun updates to your Vocal profile
📍More communication on-platform
📍Even better content creation tools
📍More resources to assist you in your creative processes
We’re so excited about all of these updates. We know they’re going to continue making your Vocal experience better and better, and allow you to make Vocal your home base for all creative endeavors. We hope you’re excited too. Now, go pin some stories!
