We are constantly working to keep our platform in top condition. As soon as changes or new features are implemented, you can find them below.
Do you suspect a fault? Then visit our status page. If you would like to see a feature added yourself, please do a feature request.
Today we have added a better translation manager. With this manager we are able to add new languages and change language strings quicker on out platform.
Changed the episode table in dashboard
When both the season and episode value are '0' the episode table in the dashboard would not display the season. This had now been fixed.
Fixed import function
Due to some changes the import function stopped working for some users. Today we have researched and fixed this issue.
Fixed bug in download number in episode table
In the episode table in the dashboard the total downloads was not displayed when there were only Spotify downloads. Today this has been fixed.
Changed the working of the draft function
Based on feedback we have made some changes to the working of the draft function. For example: '0' is now a valid value for both season and episode.
Fixed bug in Springs page
For some users, under some circumstances, the Springs page in the dashboard displayed an error. With this fix we have solved the issue.
New feature: save episode as draft
Our clients provided feedback and asked for a draft feature. Today the draft feature is released. With this feature clients are able to create a draft episode with only a title. Only for publishing all fields are required to fill.
Player artwork breakpoint
Based on feedback from clients we have changed the breakpoint from where the artwork is displayed in the embedded player.
Random waveforms only
We used to create a waveform for every audio file. This was a heavy process to do and also had a bad perfomance while listening. Therfor we have decided to totally remove the generated waveforms. This will result in a random waveform for every player since this is much better performance wise.
All access for yearly paying subscriptions
Since customers with a yearly subscription typically need more time to pay the invoice (and we have a process in place to follow-up). We have totally removed the past_due check for all yearly subscriptions.
Fix for onboarding flow
With the release of the new onboarding flow some users with inactive subscriptions where onboarded as a new user. With this fix we have solved this issue.
Fix for graph labels
With the new dashboard some displaying troubles arrose in a statistic chart. With this fix we have solved the display issue.
New release: onboarding, transcription, player, dashboard
Today we have done a major release containing the following updates:
The way new users start their Springcast journey has now changed. We have smoothed the process where you create an account and create your first podcast show.
With this release it is possible (for clients with the correct subscription) to connect your Amberscript account to your Springcast account with an API key. With the API key in place you can send the audio file from Springcast to Amberscript and Amberscript will return the transcript. This transcript is editable in our dashboard and will be displayed in our players.
The embedded player is completely rebuild to be more stable and perform better. One of the wishes from feedback from our clients has been honoured with the waveform now displayed on every screen width.
While most visitors will only see a more stylish dashboard, under the hood we have made a great deal of changes. The whole dashboard is now modular, therefor it is much easier for us to add changes in the future.
Add Spotify downloads in episode table
The total download includes the Spotify download count from now on in the episodes table in our dashboard.
Remember player progress
With this update we save the playing progress of the embedded player for the user. If the user decides to stop listening or leaves the page with the player and later resume playing we now have remembered where the user has left.
Changes to reset function
From now on it is possible for users with a yearly subscription to also use the reset function.
E-mail notification when Spring is generated
Generating a Spring might take some minutes to complete. We have added an e-mail notification so you don't have to wait while your Spring is generated.
Graph played portion hidden
There appears to be an error in the formula that shows which part of an episode has been played. This is an extensive formula which takes some time to be properly adjusted. For now, we have therefore temporarily disabled this graph. The graph next to it shows the same data, only in percentages instead of absolute numbers. It thus gives almost the same information and is accurate.
Adjustment delete account
Once a user deletes his or her account, all associated data (shows, episodes, subscriptions, files) are now instantly deleted as well.
Email notification after removing payment method
Whenever your existing payment method is removed, you will be notified by e-mail from now on. Very convenient.
E-mail notification after using Audio Polish
Applying the Audio Polish function sometimes takes some time. With this update, we have ensured that you will automatically receive an e-mail as soon as the Audio Polish has been performed. So you can continue your work in the meantime.
Anti-spam measures applied
We take continuous measures to combat spam on our platform. With this update, we have made sure that creating an account is only possible if the request comes from a valid IP address.

Bug fix 'distribution of listening moments' graph
A bug had crept into the display of the 'distribution listening times', this display was running one hour ahead as a result. This update fixes this problem and everything runs on time again.
Bug fix sending invitation e-mail to private members
In the table with members of a private podcast, it was only possible to send an invitation e-mail to the members on the first page. After this change, the invitation can again be sent to all members on the list.
Change in order episode list in dashboard
We've made a small tweak to the dashboard that now displays episodes in better order.
'Dark mode' only for Essential subscription
We have made a change so that users with a Essential subscription will always see the 'dark mode' player.
External links open in new window by default
From now on, external links placed on a podcast website will always open in a new window.
Improved Spotify import
If an import of statistics from Spotify fails, it will be automatically restarted from now on.
Adaptation of formatting of texts on the podcast website
With this update, we have improved the display of texts on the podcast website.
Bug fix opt-in services
When using the registration form in the embedded player, sometimes something went wrong with forwarding to ActiveCampaign, Mailchimp, Mailerlite or Hubspot, for example. We have fixed this in this update.
Customisation of invitations private podcast
With this update, it is now possible to send people an invitation by e-mail to listen to a private podcast episode. Previously, this could only be done by publishing a new episode and proved inconvenient.
