hotglue melt: September 2023

Sep 1st 2023

Hi team!

Welcome to our monthly hotglue melt. Here are some highlights you might have missed:

  • A fresh "Errors" page in your dashboard - Gain visibility into recurring issues across your jobs, and triage across tenants. With the new errors page, you can catch persistent errors earlier and debug faster.

Screen Shot 2023-09-19 at 1.39.34 AM.png

  • 📁 Upload your scripts directly in hotglue - Skip Jupyter or our CLI, and upload your scripts directly to hotglue. You can add scripts to default tenant to set a new default, or to a specific tenant to make deep customizations.
  • 🤫 New callback white-labeling settings - Looking for ways to make your OAuth experience cleaner? You can now change the background color and toggle off the loading text for a crisp callback page. As always, you can still add your own loading gif, or go a step further with a white-labeled URL and favicon.

New integrations ⚙️

  • 6 new taps:

    • Salesforce Marketing Cloud: With trigger and API support, you can now connect to your enterprise users' customer engagement metrics, directly to your tech stack.

    • Trustpilot: Now out of beta. Integrate with customer review data in a few clicks.
    • Precoro: Integrate your clients' procurement data for easier spending analysis.
  • 2 new targets:

Hi hotgluers!

Welcome to our monthly hotglue melt - we have got some awesome updates to share!

Product Updates 🚀

Real-time Job Triggers ⚡

We have officially launched support for real-time triggers for several integrations, including: Salesforce, HubSpot, and Shopify. Triggers allow you to automatically run sync jobs when something happens in a source system. For example, as soon as a new contact is created in HubSpot or Salesforce, hotglue will receive a webhook on your behalf, and trigger a job.

hotglue salesforce triggers

We are rapidly expanding support based on demand – let us know if there are any you are interested in!

Mapping in the Widget 🔌

We have added support for allowing tenants to do simple mappings of their data in the widget. This works for both source flows, where you want tenants to map to your own data schema (for example, a tenant could map a custom Salesforce object to your Contact schema), and for target flows, where you want tenants to map their data in your product to a target.

To learn more or try this beta feature, reach out to us at hello@hotglue.xyz. Public documentation is coming soon!

hotglue widget mapping

Detailed Job Metrics 📊

While sync jobs run, hotglue will automatically track the number of records collected for every stream in real time. This allows you to have more visibility into a particular sync and its progress! This data is also made available via the API. See a sample below:

hotglue melt: June 2022

Jul 1st 2022

Hi hotgluers!

Welcome to our fifth hotglue melt - we have got some awesome updates to share!

Our Team 🤝

In June we welcomed Davi, an awesome full stack engineer, to our team! We are super pumped to have him join us and help the product reach the next level.

Product Updates 🚀

React component + npm package 🎨

We have released the new hotglue widget as an npm package to make the setup process more streamlined. Part of this change includes a totally overhauled Connections React component, an inline version of the hotglue widget. The goal of the Connections component is to allow for a more native user experience for tenants. See an example below:

d7ce86d-qa.hotglue.xyz_env_demo.env.hotglue.xyz_content_home.png

You can learn more about the widget, React component, and the new installation process in the docs: https://docs.hotglue.com/docs/embed-hotglue

Note: The old Connections component was previously available in the now deprecated hotglue-elements package.

Revamped Google Sheets integration 🤩

qa.hotglue.xyz_env_dummy.hotglue.hotglue.io_content_home.png

As mentioned in our last update, one of our goals this month was to revamp the Google Sheets integration. We have vastly simplified the user experience for tenants that are connecting their Google Sheets. Beyond that, the new version of the integration also reduces the amount of setup required.

The new Google Sheets integration is already available for use, and we would love any feedback or suggestions you have! Feel free to reach out at hello@hotglue.xyz

New integrations ⚙️

As usual, our integrations team added more integrations – notable ones include Google Workspace, Fishbowl Inventory, Gong, Delighted, Google Play Store, Front, Metronome, and iTunes Connect. We also released improvements to the HubSpot, WooCommerce, Salesforce, Iterable, Chargebee, Snowflake, and more.

New features and improvements 🔨

Outside of our awesome redesign, the team made several improvements including:

  • Resolved issues with downloading large jobs directly from the hotglue admin panel!

  • Improvements to job logging:

    • Cleaned up the logging of exceptions in failing jobs to make them more readable
    • Added a section in admin panel to see a summarized log of why a job failed
    • Added an error field to the job details returned from the API including the summary log of why the job failed
  • Added the option to enable a Job History tab in the widget, so tenants have visibility into the sync jobs that have run. See below:

    qa.hotglue.xyz_env_dev.xyz.com_content_settings_tab=widget.png

  • Added PATCH endpoint to allow updating the tenant config. Read more in the docs

  • Added revoke parameter to DELETE tenant endpoint which deauthorizes any active OAuth connections before deleting the tenant. Read more in the docs

  • You can now choose a color to easily identify your hotglue environments in the admin panel, and update their names.

  • Enabled ability to override the default scopes for the HubSpot connectors in the admin panel

  • General bug fixes and stability improvements

Our Team 🤝

hotglue team meetup - Sao Paulo Brazil

As some of you may know, the hotglue team is fully remote with members from the United States, Brazil, Pakistan, and the Philippines. We recently had our first company meetup in São Paulo, Brazil – home to our amazing frontend engineer, Breno!

Product Updates 🚀

Redesigned Widget 🤩

hotglue widget v2 preview

As mentioned in our last update, our product team has been hard at work on a new version of the hotglue widget.

Beyond that, we are focusing on increasing the customizability of the widget so you have more control over your users integration experience.

The new widget is already available for use! You can learn how to upgrade on our docs.
