Ohyay is changing faster than ever. We've been posting bi-weekly platform updates on Discord for the past few months, and now, due to popular demand, we're bringing them to our blog 🎉
Below, learn how to use our newest features, from slideshow transitions to a test bot snapshot element. Head over to our #feature-requests channel in Discord to let us know what you'd like us to build next!
🗓 Create Automatic Calendar Invites with ohyay Links
Select the element to pull up its settings in the right-hand panel. Check the box next to Hide in Recordings under the Advanced category.
➡️ New Slideshow Transitions
From the menu, go to Element > Media > Slideshow to insert a slideshow element, which allows you to easily flip between images in a sequence (https://docs.ohyay.co/docs/slideshow).
You now have additional options for slide transitions. Under the Element category of the slideshow’s settings, select Fade next to Slide Transition and choose either Immediate or Blur from the dropdown.
Let us know if there are other types of animations you'd like to see!
From the menu, go to Room > Settings or click on your room in the Rooms List to pull up its settings. Under the Appearance category, select Cross Fade (the default room transition) next to the Room Transition property and select Blur from the dropdown.
🔎 “Search for Docs” Under Help Menu
From the menu, go to Help > Search Docs… and search for the topic in our documentation (https://docs.ohyay.co/) that you’re looking for.
Let us know if nothing comes up in your search and we will add a doc for you.
🗣 “Stop All Shouts” Under Users Menu
In ohyay, “shouting” means clicking on the megaphone icon at the top of your Rooms List and coming up on the top of the screen — usually to make an announcement (https://docs.ohyay.co/docs/shouting).
From the menu, go to Users > Stop All Shouts to immediately stop all shouts across your entire workspace.
📃 Back by Popular Demand: “All” Category Under Elements Menu
From the menu, navigate to Element > All to view all uncategorized elements in ohyay.
💨 Reaction Emoji Speed
You can now control the speed at which reaction emojis rise up in your room.
Navigate to your Room Settings (Room > Settings), look for Reaction Emoji Speed under the Reactions category, and adjust the speed on the slider.
🔖 Target Reactions by Tags on Rooms
You can now send reactions from a specific room to rooms with specified tags.
Under the Reactions category in your Room Settings, type in the room tags that you’d like to target next to Reactions Target Room Tags. (To add a tag to a room, click on the pen icon next to Tags in your Room Settings and add your desired tags).
👏 Workspace-Wide Settings for Audio Reactions and Audio Reaction Volume
You can now turn on audio reactions (emoji reactions that make sounds, like the clapping emoji) and adjust their volume across your entire workspace.
🤖 Bot Snapshot Element
We added a new element type called Bot Snapshot, which saves out the full state of bots in your space, including their name, video, and the slots in which they appear. This is huge for advanced developer productivity and for sharing.
From the menu, go to Element > Advanced Elements > Experimental > Bot Snapshot to add a Bot Snapshot.
