Brand new Filters

Today we’re proud to announce that we now have available the most anticipated features since JamiQ began beta testing! Most of our beta users have been using JamiQ to monitor conversations of their brands online amassing huge amounts of data. Previously, the only way to drill down into the data was to download them all into Excel and go through it the manual way.

Not any more. JamiQ is proud to announce the Filters!

Want to only see the conversations on blogs from your country? How about just a look at what’s negative or influential? Now you can from right within each Topic. This new Filter Feature you now see above the Topic works on both the Charts and Data pages.

We’ve also made it really easy to Filter down to what’s important. Clicking on the country or media in the Top 5 boxes jumps you directly to the data you want to see.

Also, if you feel that everything loads up a little faster now, that’s because we’ve upgraded to new servers that have more processors than I have fingers.

Hang tight, upgrading in progress

You might notice a slight slow down in our service this week as our servers are starting to max out from volume of users. We apologize for the inconvenience. We’re working to upgrade and improve the performance right now and hope everything will run as per normal by next week.

For users waiting to get their beta invites, we’ll be sending those out next week too. *fingers crossed*

Improved Topic creation interface with Include/Exclude functionality

Over the last few weeks we have been talking to beta users and receiving invaluable feedback. We also asked ourselves if we could simplify the JamiQ interface while making the tool even more powerful. Today we are proud to announce that we’ve done it.

Create a better Topic

We have redesigned the Add Topic page to a simple four-step process that can be completed on a single page. Compared to our former two page version, this new one reduces unnecessary confusion. Even in the midst of simplifying the process of creating a Topic, we have added the much requested ability for users to manipulate keywords with Include and Exclude features.

Adding the functionality to Include and Exclude keywords is very significant as it enables you to get more accurate results in your monitoring.

Faster, faster!
Another thing you might notice is that charts and pages will load faster. We’ve made use of caching to improve the performance of data extraction to your Topic dashboards.

Thanks everyone who gave fantastic feedback. We’re still happy to hear more from you. Stay tuned as there will be more updates and improvements to come really soon.

By the way, Happy 090909!

A more flexible interface

Picture 1

We have taken heed to some of the more pressing feedback from our beta testers and today are happy to announce a major upgrade to JamiQ’s interface.

While our approach to using RSS feeds as data sources gives our users great flexibility and power, many users found it too much of a hassle having to visit data source after data source to extract the RSS feed.

The new Add Topic interface will now help you search and extract the RSS feeds from your some of the Internet’s best data sources and automatically add them to your Topic. It’s so simple now even my grandma could do it. This has been done without compromising any of the customizable elements that advanced users love.
