Since we launched the new version of our platform back in 2012, one of our goals has always been to make it very easy to manage and understand how your applications are performing. In addition to simplifying how to build applications, we believe that those are the key elements for a great experience.
Over the last year we have been working on a completely new way to interact with your TokBox account. As our user-base grew and diversified, it was obvious that our previous dashboard was not enough and needed to be extended. With the number of new tools and services that are in the works, we realized that it was a good opportunity to future proof our stack and give you, our users, a much better experience.
Today we are excited to announce the upcoming release of the new TokBox Account interface. A new tool that not only changes on the surface but fundamentally redefines how we, TokBox, think about our relationship with you, our customer.
Some of the features that we are most excited about:
Improved data visualization: The first thing that will catch your eye the next time you log into your account is the beautiful graphs that will help you to better understand what is happening in your app. You would be able to see your usage and consumption and easier way to understand format.
Team management: One of the most requested features for the dashboard has been the ability to invite people from your organization. Until now, this was not possible. With today’s launch, we are enabling collaboration in one single account. We have also created roles for the most common cases so you can invite people to view projects without worrying about your billing information.
Single Sign-on: Sign in once and forget about giving us the credentials for all the the tools that you are using.
Better insights into each project: As your integration with TokBox grows, a lot of customers started to create multiple projects to manage multiple features of their apps or for different apps for their clients. In those case, it has been important to identify the usage of each API Key. We have added that possibility so you can have full control over where your minutes go.
Completely revamped back end for better reliability and expandable capabilities: As mentioned, the new features and visual aspect are just the tip of the iceberg. We have revamped the back end completely, re-engineering every aspect so we can keep extending the capabilities.
In preparation for the launch, on Thursday, May 5th we will be performing maintenance downtime of the current Dashboard. During this brief period of time, you will not be able to log in to your account to update your billing information or use some of our tools.
And this is just the first step, in the upcoming months, we will be working in new and exciting features and providing some of this capabilities through APIs so you can programmatically interact with your account.
