The Brandox Changelog
Follow the latest updates to the Brandox app from this page.
August 31 2021
- Updated video previews to show thumbnails
Rebuilt video converter now displays thumbnails captured from the uploaded video. This means the browser only loads the thumbnail of each video instead of the entire video in preview mode. The video will still play when the play button is clicked. This update resolves browser issues reported by users such as sections crashing when uploading assets.
July 27 2021
- Pending label added to users who have not verified their Brandox account in the Manage Users section
Page admins can now see when other users have not accepted their Brandox invitation

- Updated formatting for section descriptions
Users can now have paragraphs and clickable links in the section descriptions.
- Fixed bug affecting users logged in with multiple accounts
Previously users who logged in with two accounts at the same time did not get a notification that they were logged out from the first account. This meant that changes made in that window were not reflected in the backend of Brandox. We have now updated this to show when a user has been fully logged out from the system.
November 27 2020
- Added links as an asset
Users can now add external links to their brand pages and Brandox will display them as an asset.
November 24 2020
- Fixed file download bug
After unique URLs were added as a feature, the system was automatically adding the URL to the file name of some files during download. The bug has now been fixed and file names are no longer altered during download.
November 16 2020
- Preview update to show information and metadata
Previously clicking an asset showed a preview of the asset alone. Now the view includes information and metadata tied to that asset.
- Added arrows for better navigation
Before users had to click out of a preview to open another one. Now they can click the arrows on-screen or use keyboard arrows to navigate.
- Added support for previews of .webp and .heic files
- Added unique URLs for each asset uploaded and hosted directly on Brandox
- Upgraded image converter to better support previews

October 21 2020
- Updated view for subscription overview

October 16 2020
- Fixed a bug for resetting passwords in User Settings area
Previously some users encountered an error when attempting to update their passwords which prevented the changes from being reflected in their account.
September 23 2020
- Now you can click the close icon in the search field to close the search if the input is empty.
- The show more assets-button now only loads 32 more items at a time.
There was an issue where if you had thousands of assets in a page section the browser would have a hard time rendering them all at the same time.
- Added an Add brand asset option to the page section dropdowns.
This makes it way easier to add brand assets to sections with lots of assets where the other Add-button will be at the end.
- Video durations are now displayed for uploaded video assets.
- Disabled the permission levels admin for public brand pages, as they will show everything to everyone.
This was very confusing as it would appear you could actually restrict access to parts of your public brand page when in fact you could not.
September 17 2020
- Now we display a better message if a brand page has no sections.
Previously we would show a error-like message, now we display a message saying that the brand page has no page sections. This was confusing.
(This also goes for brand pages where a user does not have access to any sections.)
September 11 2020
- Fixed a bug where we would show Login/Sign up brandox.com even if you were already logged in.
You should also now get to the last visited Brand page when you click the Go go brand page button when logged in.
September 7 2020
- You can now move brand pages between subscriptions.
To move a brand page, go to admin -> subscriptions -> the subscription you want to move the brand page from -> Settings. Click the Move-button next to the brand page you want to move, select the subscription you want to move the brand page to. Done!
- We now display a CANCELLED label next to cancelled subscriptions in the subscriptions overview.
August 26 2020
- Now we display preview images for uploaded video files (in supported formats).
We only showed a black background previously, now we display the first frame of the video.
August 25 2020
- Fixed bug where the information dialog for videos sometimes did not display.
- Fixed a bug where labels could not be used with “special” characters such as /?& or 😀 😃 😄 😁.
Labels should work now no matter what characters you put in them!
August 17 2020
- Fixed bug where some public brand pages could not be set as private again.
All public brand pages should now be able to go private without issues.
