  1. Great work Veena and Ravi! Looking forward to the other planned upgrades, especially the email link tracking.

  2. Greeeeat!!! 🙂

    Excellent as always!

    Looking also for email tracking, to make DAP perfect and complete solution!!!

  3. I’m loving the updates and features. Really excited that some of my personal wish list requests were included. This is the happiest I’ve been since Elizabeth Phillips kissed me straight on the lips in the fifth grade while Mrs. Taylor was out of the classroom! (That was in 1951, by the way.)

  4. Thank you for the excellent additions to DAP. It’s great to see much needed features on top of a solid base. I look forward to your Shopping Cart and checkout improvements.

    Thanks Peter for taking the time to leave us a comment here. I want you to know that we really appreciate it. We’ll be releasing shopping cart updates very soon :). Stay tuned.

    Thanks,

  6. Thanks Jordi for always taking the time to comment on our posts and for sharing your thoughts :). We appreciate it.

    Thanks,

    Thanks Sjur :). Yes, email tracking is very high on our to-do list for DAP.

    Thanks,
    Veena

  8. Great updates! Am seriously considering leaving woocommerce and going back to your shopping cart with all of these back end improvements. Now once you get Zapier integration it’ll be a total no brainer…

  9. Thanks Jared :).

    We’ll be releasing an awesome shopping cart update (2-step checkout) next week. This way you’ll have a way to collect user’s contact info first before sending them to the billing page. If they abandon the cart, you’ll still have a way to contact them with a special discount offer etc to get them to reconsider.

    Thanks,
    Veena

  10. Great! I’d wondered why 2 step was a feature, I’d always assumed one step was better – less clicks. Would that be a global setting or a by product setting? Would love it to be by product.

    Honestly, a few months ago I was contemplating looking around at other membership solutions once more – then you started getting all responsive and improving the admin – two key issues. Then (and it was still lurking in the back of my mind) in the 5.0 update notes you get probably my biggest wish on your map – Zapier. Then you say you’ll be upgrading the analytics! Am locked on.

    My other biggest remaining wish would be an improvement in the UI and features for managing products and in particular membership pages (the content responder). I have 6 courses all of which have 8 content pages, plus the blogs and other pages that show up every time I want to add a page or make a change – let alone if I change the name of a course or anything else I have to go through and redo everything. It’s really clunky. I’d love to have a far more powerful content responder management panel e.g. able to narrow the selection to only a certain path e.g. /membership-content/, be able to select a page and see which products it’s assigned to, or even assign to products on the page editor.

    Just some thoughts.

    So appreciate all the great work you both do to make DAP great!

  11. Hi Veena,
    Your brain works in a different dimension to mine!
    I use Optimize Press version 1.
    Would I have to upgrade to Optimize Press V2 (a big job for me) in order to benefit from the mobile friendliness that you refer to or would simply upgrading to this new DAP beta achieve mobile friendliness?
    Keep up the good work.

  12. Would that be a global setting or a by product setting? Would love it to be by product.

    Actually it’s even better than product level. It’s a checkout form / button level setting. So you can create multiple checkout forms using different templates.
    For ex:
    Checkout page 1 – template 1
    Checkout page 2 – template 2
    Checkout page 3 – template 3 ( 2-step checkout)

    Now… when you generate a payment button in DAP, you can specify the checkout page URL.
    So if you want a 2-step checkout for a specific button / flow, set the checkout page URL to checkout page 3. That’s it.

    I’ll explain this in detail in the release video next week.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks,
    Veena

  13. Hi Jared,

    Love your detailed feedback.

    Yes, we do plan on cleaning up the DAP products page (especially the contentresponder tab), make it more user friendly and easier to use, including ability to protect content directly from WP admin -> page editor to one or multiple products. BTW, not sure if you’ve checked out DAP Doctor yet (DAP system -> dap doctor) because you can enter a URL in the “URL Protected” tab and it’ll list all the products under which that URL is protected. So while it’s not part of the contentresponder tab yet, the feature is there if you need it.

    Thanks,
    Veena

  14. Hi Stephen,

    Would I have to upgrade to Optimize Press V2 (a big job for me) in order to benefit from the mobile friendliness that you refer to or would simply upgrading to this new DAP beta achieve mobile friendliness?

    No, you don’t have to upgrade OP to use the new mobile-friendly DAP 5.x release.
    As long as OP1 is mobile-friendly, it’s fine.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks,
    Veena

  15. I am soooo glad I came back to DAP after taking a break for a bit to clean up security issues in my WordPress site.

    DAP is so versatile, you really can do almost anything you want with it — I’m using it now to not only promote products, but also my entire services funnel as well. And the things you’re doing to make it easier to use, such as one-click buttons to set up profile, content, affiliate pages? That is all the more reason I will be recommending DAP more frequently.

    With every update it’s obvious you’re paying attention to your customer’s needs. And Veena, I don’t know how you manage it, but you are everywhere at once. The Facebook page is a great addition and your responses on the support side are second to none.

    Keep up the good work! You just get better with time.

  16. Hi Tanya,

    I’m so glad you’re back :).

    Thanks Tanya! This year the focus is going to be not just new features but to make DAP really easy and fun to use!

    When you are with DAP, you’re family :). We genuinely care for our customers and it’s important for us to be there when our customers need us. It’s always been this way and it’ll never change. And having supportive customers and DAP fans like you gives us even more energy and motivation to continue to empower our users with everything they need to grow their membership sites. We’ve a lot more awesome stuff lined for release this year!

    Thanks for being a long time DAP supporter and for being a part of our journey :).

    Veena

  17. Hello,

    Do you plan to integrate DAP with Clickfunnel in the near future or in the future at all?

    Regards,
    François

  18. Waiting for it to come out of beta before upgrading but very much looking forward to the email tracking and reporting. I was just thinking the other day, it’s a bit like flying blind, wonder if/when they’ll add tracking.

    Any idea of the time frame Veena?

    Paul

  19. Hi Paul,

    Email tracking/reporting is not part of DAP 5.0.x but it’s high on our priority list. We’re still doing some research work on this so don’t have a release date yet. We’ll let you know as soon as have one – hopefully within 2-3 weeks.

    We’re hoping to make DAP 5.x final in about a week from now.

    Thanks,
    Veena
