When we launched the Thingiverse Groups feature, we knew it was the beginning of something great. To make it even better, we needed to hear from you with suggestions and feedback. So we offered up a survey, and after sifting through the results, we’ve made some highly requested improvements.
Searching and Sorting
One of the most common requests we received involved updating the searching and sorting function. Groups 1.1 has a more accessible search bar and now scans Group descriptions as well as titles, expanding your results. You can sort by groups, and when creating a group, similar names are suggested to avoid creating duplicates.
More for Group Owners
Another suggestion we received from users of Groups was more administration ability for the Group owner. Our latest update means owners can now edit topic thread titles and group names, as well as delete groups that don’t contain any members or topics.
Many users wanted easier access to social networks like Twitter. We heard you loud and clear. Groups 1.1 supports Twitter cards, allowing for direct Group URL sharing.
We’re constantly iterating on Thingiverse Groups, and future innovations are on the horizon, including improved categorization and multiple group owners. Be sure to send us your feedback often. We can’t wait to see what you make.
