Time Zone Support & Video Player Updates

We’ve released an update for Vimsy that introduces some new features plus a whole host of bug fixes and stability improvements.

Time Zone Support

If you’re not based in the UK we have some good news for you - you can now set the time zone for your Vimsy Channel in your channel settings. Instead of wondering why all of your Insights and Actions were showing up several hours ahead or behind your local time, you can now set your time zone and see the data relative to your location.

Like the channel language, your time zone can be configured in your channel settings and applies to all members. As soon as you apply your new time zone your existing data will update to reflect when it happened in your new time zone. Even better, your time zone also applies to scheduled content when you set the Post Date and Expiry Date for a piece of content. No more working out how many hours ahead or behind you are from London to make your content appear at the right time!

Scrubber Bar Thumbnail Preview

If you host your videos with Vimsy or Wistia you’ll notice a new feature for the Vimsy video player - when you hover your cursor over the scrubber bar (the long thing that shows you where you are in the video) you’ll see a big, beautiful thumbnail preview of the video you’re playing. This is great for jumping around to different sections of the video to find that moment you were looking for - or just previewing ahead to see whether the video is something you want to keep watching!

Other bug fixes and improvements

As always, these updates also included general bug fixes and stability improvements for the entire platform.
