What's new

New updates and improvements to Zealy

May 13, 2024

Token task

Token task

Verify automatically that a user has a specific amount of a certain token in their wallet. This is useful for airdrops, giveaways, or any other scenario where you want to reward users based on their token holdings. To configure, use the token task, select a network, choose a token from the list or enter the token's contract address, and specify the minimum amount of tokens the user should have. Users will be prompted to connect their wallet to claim the quest, and we will verify if they hold the required amount of tokens.

NFT task

Similar to the token task, with the NFT task, you can automatically verify if the user owns an NFT of your choice. Use this to control access to other quests or perks based on the user's NFT holdings or target other collection's holders. Configure it in the same way as the token task, but instead of a token, you'll enter the address of the NFT and the minimum amount of NFTs the user should have.

NFT task

Changes to wallet management

To verify on-chain interactions on more chains, we need to ensure that you own the address you're using. This prevents any dishonest actions, such as claiming to hold something you don't. We're making some changes to how you manage your wallet on our platform to make it easier for you. Here's what's happening: 💅 Easier Setup: No more manual input of blockchain addresses in your settings. Now, you'll find your wallet options under Settings > Linked accounts > Wallet section. If your community supports Ethereum, Polygon, Base, Arbitrum, Optimism, or Solana, connecting your wallet is simple. If not, don't worry, you can still input your address. 👯‍♀️ No duplicates: Any blockchain addresses of the chains listed above that you manually added before will be removed. You'll be prompted to connect your wallet instead.

Other fixes & improvements

  • Search templates by name
  • Fixes inbox timestamps not updating
  • Fixes issue with wallet connection on mobile

Apr 15, 2024

Partnership task

Partnership task

Our brand new partnership task allows you to verify if a user has joined another Zealy community with ease. This task is ideal for cross-promotion and collaborations between communities. To use it, simply select 'Partnership' when creating a new task and enter the URL of the community you wish to partner with.

Sprint Update

Our most recent sprint updates make running smooth sprints more straightforward than ever. We provide tools to help you identify whether quests included in the sprint have been claimed, and we offer the option to duplicate them if necessary.

Other Fixes & Improvements

  • Enhanced stability for Twitter task verification
  • Fixes an issue where the "join date" column was missing in the CRM
  • Adds information about the "unlisted" mark to the pricing page and FAQ

Enhanced Security and Community Transparency

Enhanced Security and Community Transparency

With the latest update, we're strengthening community trust and transparency while giving community managers more control and insight into their user base. Here's what's new:

Scam Detection Feature

In our continuous effort to protect our users, we've released a feature that identifies potential scam communities—such as those offering airdrops from new or suspicious social accounts. When flagged, a modal will alert users upon their first visit to a community, advising them to proceed with caution. We believe this will be a significant step towards a safer platform for all.

Public API - Fetch Invites Endpoint

Responding to popular demand, we've opened a new endpoint in our Public API. Admins can now retrieve data on whom a specific user has invited, paving the way for robust referral systems. This feature promises to add a new layer of engagement within communities by incentivizing referrals.

Find User by Email

Need to locate a user quickly? Our new 'Find by Email' endpoint will allow you to do just that, streamlining user management and supporting efficient administrative operations.

Other fixes & improvements

  • Resolved race conditions during sprint creation to prevent the occurrence of simultaneous sprints.

Daily discord summary

Daily discord summary

Get notified on Discord about your community's activity, without getting flooded by notifications. With our new daily summary, you can know how many quests were completed that day in each category.

This feature is replacing the previous 'Completed Quest' automation. We're also disabling the 'level up' automation, as it was not used by many communities and these two features were causing issues with Discord's rate limits. To replace any existing 'level up' condition, we suggest using a role reward on a quest that has the level condition set.

Top referrer

Learn where most of your members are coming from with the new top referrer chart. You can find it in the 'Analytics' section of your community. This is handy to know which acquisition channels to double down on, or discontinue.

Referral URL

Other fixes & improvements

  • Disconnect Twitter account from a community
  • Updated cookie information to comply with GDPR

New create community flow

We just released a new create community flow. It's now easier than ever to create a community. We've also added a brand new feature that lets you invite your team members by email.

Other fixes & improvements

  • Fix issue with Leaderboard reset not being reflected in the notifications
  • Fix edge case where rejecting a claim and then cancelling it might cause double claims
  • Fix delay in leaderboard update

Apr 28, 2023

Email authentication

Email authentication

You can now sign up for Zealy with just your email address! That's right - we've made it even easier to create your account and start exploring all the amazing communities on our platform.

In the past, you could only sign up using your wallet or Discord account, but we know that not everyone wants to use those platforms. That's why we've listened to your feedback and added email sign-up as an option.

Bonus XP

We've heard your requests loud and clear and we're excited to share our latest update with you. Our team has been hard at work brainstorming the best way to separate the top performers on our leaderboard and we think we've found a better solution than simply decreasing XP for quests.

We understand that quality is key, and we didn't want to reward speed over excellence. So, we put our heads together and came up with an innovative new feature - Bonus XP!

Bonus XP

When you star a submission, a new input will appear for bonus XP. This way, we can reward those who go the extra mile and produce top-quality work. We believe this will be a great source of motivation for our contributors, and we can't wait to see the results.

We know that everyone has different strengths and styles, so we've decided to move away from the old system of ranking based on the order of claims. Instead, we're focusing on other factors that can help us identify the top performers. For example, we've noticed some communities where stars and flags are heavily used, so we've incorporated those into our new approach.

We're committed to creating the best possible experience for our users, and we hope that this new feature will do just that. Thanks for being a part of our community, and we look forward to seeing you climb to the top of the leaderboard with Bonus XP!

Other fixes & improvements

  • Update keyboard shortcut for moving between reviews to shift + arrow keys
  • Remove unsaved changes warning after updating community image
  • Fix issue with canceling a failed claim deducting XP

Apr 21, 2023

Country and community reports

Country and community reports

We know you love understanding your members in more detail, and that it's also important to see the bigger picture. That's why we've added country and community reports to our analytics dashboard.

You can now see how many users are from each country, and which other communities your members are part of. You might use this to propose partnerships with other communities, or decide where to host your next event.

This new feature is available to growth plan communities and above.

Custom API keys

Our API has grown more and more popular. Just last month we had 16M requests to our API and the number of projects building upon it are increasing. To ensure safety and security of our users when using third-party apps, we have decided to introduce custom API keys.

Now you can generate multiple API keys for your projects, each with a different set of permissions. You can view all your active API keys, generate new and revoke existing ones in your community settings under the API key tab.

Other fixes & improvements

  • Fix issue with search on landing
  • Enforce once recurrence on Twitter quests in editor
  • Fix issue with new landing on Opera and Kiwi browsers
  • Improve performance on new landing page
  • Fix URL verification failing when including a '@'
  • Fix number of quests not resetting with the rest of the leaderboard
