Hello Knack Community!
Here are some details relating to my last post.
We’ll be doing a rolling deployment of the new sign-up, sign-in, and dashboard based on region.
and the plan we are going forward with is as follows:
- Monday, June 5, at 1pm EST, we will enable the new sign-in, sign-up, and dashboard for users in our APAC (Asia/Pacific) region.
- Wednesday, June 7 (9pm EDT), we will enable the new sign-in, sign-up, and dashboard for users in our EU region.
- Friday, June 9 (12am EDT), we will enable the new sign-in, sign-up, and dashboard for users in our US East region.
- Friday, June 9 (12am EDT), we will enable the new sign-in, sign-up, and dashboard for users in our US West (Gov cloud) region.
This is subject to change (very little chance of this but including as a disclaimer)
This schedule does not apply to private environments
There will not be any downtime with these releases. If you are working in the dashboard, builder, or live app, you will not be interrupted.

I’ll be posting all new urls in the changelog as an fyi.
There are no changes to existing Builder or Live App URLS.
Create New App
We want to make it easier for your to create apps and get your data in.
We’ve added an option to import from your .csv file which will drop you into the import screen.
When you create a new app, we will autogenerate the name and the url. Feel free to change it of course, but the point is to allow you to just start building quickly.
We’re now referring to Templates as Sample Apps (to differentiate from Templates in the Builder).
Account Settings Info
We’ve changed Account Name to Organization Name.
For brand-new users signing up, we’ll be autogenerating the Organization name and URL for them based on magic and email address
In Account Settings: Overview
You’ll see your Gravatar or upload a personalized profile pic - here’s Ziggystar, cutest dog ever.
In about a week and a half, I’ll be posting about how you can learn about more impactful changes coming to the Knack roadmap (and why we started with the dashboard first).
