User experience has always been a top priority for us. In developing Canvs, we strive to balance robust analytics with a clean, intuitive interface. With that goal in mind, version 1.2 of Canvs is even more elegant, easy, and fun to use. Here's what's new.
As soon as you log in to Canvs, you'll see images from current TV shows displayed across the homepage. Thanks to a partnership with Gracenote, we now populate images and additional information for each program we track.
Clicking on the image will take you to the corresponding episode view.
We've revamped the entire landing page to give users a better experience. Your Favorites are now front and center below our new filter menu. Don't have any Favorites? Simply click on the star in the upper right of any episode image to designate that series as a Favorite.
Directly under the Favorites section, program airings are grouped by day. You'll see many social TV heavy-hitters toward the left side of the screen: Airings are automatically ordered by reaction volume, with the biggest shows from each night appearing first. To sort by airtime instead, visit the "Sort by" menu in the upper right to toggle between options.
Each row of programs is collapsible, so you can focus only on days you're interested in.
Canvs version 1.2 isn't just a pretty face. The platform now offers more robust filtering options, too. Immediately below the top search bar, you'll see tabs for Series, Specials, and Sports. Clicking on these tabs filters the results below.
Landing page filters
Directly under the content tabs, you'll find filters that allow you to further narrow your search criteria. You can sort episodes on the homepage view by genre, network, and daypart. Select criteria in one or more of these menus to customize your view.
The first filter you select here will dictate the options for the other filters. For example, if you select genre first you'll only be able to select networks that air that genre. Hitting the clear button will reset all filters.
Series page update
Searching a series title or clicking on a series name under the episode image will take you to our sleek new series page. This page gives you a quick overview of every episode available in a series, organized by season. Hovering over the episode will provide the volume of Tweets and reactions to the episode. If the series appears on more than one network, make sure to choose the correct setting above the episode listing.
Clicking on an episode on this page will take you directly to the corresponding episode view.
As always, we're eager to hear your feedback on these new features and anything else related to Canvs. To help you get in touch with us, we added a live chat feature to Canvs. If you have a question while you're using the platform, you can click on the teal banner in the lower right corner to open a chat conversation with one of our analysts. After business hours, you can use that same banner to leave us a message.
We hope you enjoy using these new features as much as we do!
