As the world begins to turn again, and modern life slowly inches back toward a familiar pace, making the most of the minutes is crucial. Not only does efficiency save time, but also energy, which, these days, is as important as anything.

To contribute to your overall efficiency, we’ve updated our Saved Block Library to make it easier to access, helping you create Qwilr pages faster than ever. Read on to learn more about the update.

Saved block library

Previously, the Saved Block Library was only accessible when editing a page, which made it difficult to manage your saved content quickly.

The Saved Block Library is now accessible from the Dashboard — helping you and your team create pages faster, manage your saved content more easily and enabling your team to be more efficient.

You can now search, create and edit Saved Blocks via the "Blocks" link in the navigation bar.

Plus, we added some new features to the saved block library to help your team find Blocks faster and manage editing permissions.

Saved blocks filter

If you’ve used the Saved Block Library feature prior to this update, you may have run into trouble trying to find a specific block — we know how difficult it can be, especially when you have tens or hundreds of saved blocks. To make it easier to track down the right block for your Qwilr page, on top of filtering your saved blocks by block type, you can now sort them alphabetically or by date created.

Saved block editing permissions

To help teams collaborate with more clarity and ease in Qwilr, account admins can now manage editing permissions of saved blocks.

Other changes

  • Menu clarity: "Insights" has been renamed to "Analytics" in the Dashboard.

Our development around the dashboard and everything else about Qwilr doesn’t end here.

We’re always learning from our users and working to improve our product and business based on what we hear from you. Thanks to everyone who shared their insights — please keep them coming!
