Welcome to this week’s round of ELIX updates! We’ve been hard at work on our web portal. In case you haven’t already, be sure to sign up for the new web portal here. The web portal is a streamlined way to create and manage products and campaigns.
We’ve been working hard on improving the ELIX web portal. Here are just a few of the changes we’ve made recently:

In the future, we’re planning to build in the ability to edit product and campaign cards by clicking on them in the dashboard.
We’ve improved the usability of the product and campaign creation tools within the product and campaign dashboard. We plan to add validation and better alert views for user errors soon. We have improved the way campaign and product data is saved, so we have reset all campaigns and products on the open beta, but we can migrate any data if requested.
