A brand new dashboard
We’re working hard on completely redesigning the Instant Magazine dashboard. Expect loads of handy new features, an improved overview of your publications, and easier access to your various assets.
A new way of managing users
As part of the new dashboard, we’re also developing new tools for managing users. Expect new ways of grouping users and assigning privileges.
All-new Chart builder
We’re developing an all-new Chart element to help you create data visualizations in your Instant Magazines.
The template builder
One of our most requested features is coming soon! The template builder will allow you to create and reuse templates for Publications, Pages, Blocks, and Overlays across your Instant Magazine account.
Our design team is busy building dozens of new publication templates. No matter what you plan to make, you'll have the perfect pre-designed, multi-page templates to accelerate your creative process.
Insert pages from another publication
By popular demand, it's now possible to copy pages from one publication to another.
Allow visitors of your publication to search through its content.
30+ new page templates
Our designers have been busy. 30+ new Page Templates are available! We've improved and categorized them to save you even more time.
We've introduced new functionality for uploading SSL certificates so you can securely host publications on your own domain. Access it via the Publishing Settings.
Style buttons and quotes from the theme
You can now style your buttons and quotes from one central location via the Theme panel.
We're integrating with Zapier to connect Instant Magazine to 1,000+ apps. This integration makes the process of managing and following up on leads even easier as you can automatically push lead information to your CRM and other platforms.
Improvements to the cookie consent feature
If you've added remarketing pixels to your publication, or are using other types of content that insert cookies (e.g. (background) videos via YouTube or Vimeo), you can now let visitors decide if they accept those cookies.
Enhanced parallax scroll options
We're changing the way fixed images work by giving you more control over the scroll speed of Blocks.
Drag & Drop reports
We're introducing a brand new dashboard for Drag & Drop publications that highlights the most important statistics.
Add quotes to your page to make it even more lively.
80+ new block templates
We're introducing a wealth of new block templates to help you build pages more quickly. With over eighty new layouts to choose from, you'll spend less time designing and more time making an impact.
Instead of being able to only link to an overlay once, you'll be able to link to the same overlay multiple times.
Lead generation (social login)
We're enriching the lead generation feature with social login, allowing you to collect rich data from your readers via Facebook or LinkedIn.
Enriched content animations
Make your publication even more lively with brand new animations and improved versions of existing ones.
Managing overlays is about to become easier. You'll have a centralized location where you can see and rename existing overlays.
We're expanding the functionality of our Media Library by including the possibility to upload files like PDFs.
Rounded corners for images and text elements
You'll have more creative freedom by being able to make the corners of images and text elements rounded.
Enhanced visibility settings
We're enhancing features for hiding content across devices. On top of being able to prevent content from display on tablet or mobile, you'll also be able to only hide content on desktop for instance.
Upload your own images to use as hotspots instead of only our predefined styles.
Insert your own hosted videos into your publication, even if they are not on YouTube or Vimeo.
Style your copy to perfection by adjusting the spacing around Titles and Paragraphs.

Rearranging columns responsively

Deleting form submissions
If you collect personal data using Instant Magazine (e.g. through a form), this new feature allows you to delete form submissions and all the included data from your account (and our servers) completely.
We’re improving our lead generation feature. Instead of only being able to gate your publication before it loads, it will also be possible to display the lead gen form after a number of pages. Initially, your readers will be able to access your publication (or the rest of it) by filling out a form.
Compress to ZIP
Download your publication as a ZIP file so you can host it yourself.
Enhanced text styling
Add background colors to Titles and Paragraphs to make your text stand out more.
Background image focus
Lock the position of background images to ensure a certain area of the image is visible across devices.
We’re introducing a brand new Cookie Consent feature. This feature allows you to obtain cookie consent from those who visit your publication. We’re leaving the cookie wall feature in the original editor as is.
Instead of only being able to align the content of Columns, you'll also be able to set the alignment for Elements individually.
Export to printable PDF
Export your publication as a landscape oriented PDF for printing purposes.
IP address anonymization
If you’ve connected your publication(s) to Google Analytics, you may want to anonymize IP addresses so they will not be recorded in Analytics. This new feature allows you to do so.
