2024 Content Hub Release Notes

iOS, Windows, and Android will support the 2 most recent major operating system versions prior to the current major version


Web Release 

July 8th, 2024


  • Files published from Drive in Content Hub Stories and Page Templates now have support for the ‘Future Publish Date’, ‘Active/Inactive’, and ‘Expiration Date’ file metadata fields from Drive.
    • When publishers are editing a Story or Page Template in the Content Hub they will now see attributes associated with files published from Drive indicating that they are associated with the Story or Page Template, but they are not currently visible to end users when viewing in the platform.
    • Hovering over these attributes will give additional information to the publisher explaining when the file will be live or why it is currently not available.
    • These attributes are managed in Drive and can not be edited from the Content Hub application.


  • To further align Classic Stories to modern Page Templates and to remove some of the congested UI issues that are encountered with non-live files, tags will no longer be shown on the Story ‘edit’ view. 


  • We've made a few minor updates to the Access Forms Dashboard
    • The default order for Forms in the Access Forms Dashboard is now set on the created date and sorted from Newest > Oldest. Forms can be manually sorted by each column in the dashboard.
    • When restoring an archived Form users are now taken to the edit view for that Form instead of the Dashboard so they can easily manage the Form that is no longer archived.
  • We’re updating the behavior for all shares (emails, links, and rooms) so that the shares automatically expire when a user is removed/deleted from the system so the content they’ve shared is no longer available for external viewers.


iOS 5.19.1 Release

June 20th, 2024


  • Added support for Page Templates with Tabs on iOS devices


Web Release 

June 11th, 2024


  • We've made several significant updates to Page Templates, enhancing both their functionality and usability. These improvements are designed to streamline your workflow and provide you with more flexibility and control over your pages. 
    • Sharing across multiple File Widgets: While working in a Page Templates, users can now select files from multiple File Widgets and share them by selecting the share icon in any of the File Widgets. This action will share all of the selected files on the Page.
    • Adding ‘more options’ button to File Widgets: The more options button allows users to take bulk actions such as ‘Open all’, ‘Download all’, ‘Share all’, and ‘Add to Room’, on all files in the widget.
    • Introducing Page Template Tabs: A new type of Page Template allows publishers more flexibility when it comes to organizing content in their Page. Publishers can add up to 8 tabs in a Page, and each tab will have all of the same widgets that the primary tab contains. Publishers can give these tabs a title and choose to enable or disable any of the widgets on each tab that they need.

  • We've rolled out several updates to our sharing capabilities, making it easier and more efficient to share your content. These enhancements are aimed at improving collaboration and ensuring a seamless experience when working with others. Dive into the details to learn about the new features and improvements we've implemented.
    • Auto-update files in Digital Sales Rooms: A new admin setting in Platform Configuration > Sharing > Room Defaults allows administrators to enable the feature. This setting keeps files in sync across the source location and Digital Sales Rooms. If Auto-update is enabled, files that are updated in a Story are also updated real-time in all Digital Sales Room’s that they are shared, without the Room Owner needing to take an action. The new ‘updated date’ will be displayed in the Share Console and Room Owners will receive an email & in-app notification informing them which file was updated.
    • Notify Room Owners when files are updated in their Rooms: As mentioned above, there is a new notification email for files that are Auto-updated in Digital Sales Rooms.
    • View files in the Share Console: While viewing the ‘Manage Content’ tab of a Digital Sales Room in the Share Console, users will now be able to click on the File title and view the version of the File that is shared in the Room. If Auto-update is enabled, this will always be the active version of the file in a Story, however if Auto-update is not enabled, then this will be the version of the file that viewers have access to in the Room.
    • Return ‘Leads’ from CRM: When searching in the ‘To’ field while sending an Email users will now be able to see CRM Leads. Previously only CRM Contacts were listed in this section.
    • Hidden files keep their position in DSRs: When a Room Owner ‘hides’ a file in their Digital Sales Room, it previously was moved to the bottom of the section it was added to. Now, that hidden file will remain in its previous location, so users can unhide the file without having to re-order the content in their Room.
  • We've made a minor update to the Access Forms Dashboard
    • Added an ‘Owner’ column to the Access Forms Dashboard making it easier to see who owns which Access Form without having to enter the edit view for that Form.

Web Release

April 9th, 2024 


  • Introducing the Form Dashboard & custom Access Forms!
    • Custom Access Forms are a powerful tool for creating personalized experiences tailored to your customers when accessing shared content. Unlike generic authentication interfaces, custom Access Forms serve as a strategic gateway that gathers critical information about your customers relevant to the sales process. 
    • The Form Dashboard is not restricted to Administrators and can be enabled for any user in Configuration Bundles. If you enable the Form Dashboard for a configuration bundle all users within that bundle will be able to create and manage custom Access Forms in the Form Dashboard.
    • When creating Forms the Email field is required at this time.
    • For full details please refer to the user guide here: https://help.bigtincan.com/hc/en-us/articles/25460214796685-Forms-Dashboard 
  • New Feature - Download shared files as PDFs
    • When files are added to a share, users can enable a setting “Download as PDF” which converts supported document types to PDF when the viewer downloads them from the Share Portal. These files will remain in their original format for viewing in the Share Portal. This ensures that viewers can download a copy of the files shared, but that they are in a more secure document format that can not be easily edited or manipulated.
    • The ‘Download as PDF’ feature can be enabled for users by Administrators in Configuration Bundle settings. Admins can also determine whether ‘Download as PDF’ is active by default for users with the setting enabled in their Configuration Bundle in Platform Configuration > Sharing > Sharing settings.
    • When selected by default, any user with the Configuration Bundle setting enabled will have the setting turned on for every Share they create, these users will still be able to disable the setting manually when creating a Share.
    • For full details please refer to the user guide here: https://help.bigtincan.com/hc/en-us/articles/25147752507789-Download-as-PDF 
  • Pitch Builder improvements: Choose save location
    • When users are saving a file created using Pitch Builder they now have the option to choose between creating a new Story or saving to an existing Story that they have publish permissions in.


  • Protected Accounts
    • A new setting has been added to User Profiles that allows administrators to designate an account as ‘protected’. Protected Accounts are typically used by external systems (such as BIS) and may not be recognized by all admins, so we’ve added an extra layer of security so admins don’t inadvertently edit/change/delete these critical accounts.
    • When editing a user in Platform Configuration > Users > All Users > Edit User or creating a new user Admins will see a new setting called “Protected Account” select the check box to enable the setting for this user.

  • When editing a Protected Account the administrator will see an additional step informing them that they are trying to edit a protected account. The admin must type the word ‘confirm’ into the text box to move forward with editing that user's profile.

  • Admins can not remove a Protected Account from a Group without editing the user’s profile and typing in the word confirm

  • Page Template Dashboard design updates
    • The Page Template Dashboard has been updated to match the look and feel of the Form Dashboard

  • Share Console added to the Main Navigation Menu
    • A new icon for the Share Console has been added to the Main Navigation Menu. Currently users have to navigate to the “Me” page where they can see their recent Shares and access the Share Console. Now they will be able to get to the Share Console from the Main Navigation Menu for easier access.

The Share Console can be placed anywhere in the menu by admins and is included in the Custom Navigation Order menu found in Platform Configuration > General > Navigation



Windows 5.12.0 Release 

March 18th, 2024


  • New Pitch Builder workflow: File Customization Settings

The new File Customization Settings give publishers control over which files are allowed to be used in Pitch Builder, regardless of the file’s share status. These settings control whether a file is added to Pitch Builder without the ability to re-order or remove pages from the File, so it maintains its integrity when being used to create a Pitch.

Files that have a share status of Optional or Mandatory today will have ‘Allow file to be added to Pitch Builder’ enabled by default. No files will have ‘Prevent reordering and editing of file’ enabled unless manually changed by content publishers.

When ‘Prevent reordering and editing of file’ is enabled for files, the ability to ‘Add Page to Pitch Builder” for pages within that file will be disabled in the File action menu, and in the Search Results page.

When a file with ‘Prevent reordering and editing of file’ enabled is added to Pitch Builder users will see a clear indication that the file can not be edited or reordered. Users will not be able to drag pages from other files into the file section. Users will be able to drag the entire file into a different section of the new Pitch they are creating. New sections can be added before or after the restricted files section as well.

  • Drafts added to Pitch Builder: Changes made to a Pitch are now saved when users leave the app, allowing them to come back at any time and pick up where they left off.
  • The sort function found in the Windows Story View offers an option to sort by Date Modified, previously this has used the ‘Date Created’ field as the Date Modified was not available, now the Sort function is updated to use the correct Date Modified value.
