Release Notes

Release: Magic Link and API Keys

Canoa releases new product features, including a new way to share your designs and integrate Canoa to your workflow.

This is some text inside of a div block.

🚀 Magic Link!

As we look to continue to improve how users can collaborate with others on platform, we now provide the ability for Non-Canoa users to access the platform without needing to sign up!  The magic link will allow users to view and/or edit all aspects of a project from the layout to user-actions for orders depending on the access level provided.

In the Share Project window, you can now select to create a Public (magic) link!  The link will automatically be copied to your clipboard so you can paste it wherever you need.

A pop-up window shows how to generate a public magic link to share project.
  • When creating a magic link, you can specify the timeframe for the link to be active and the access level for the link.
  • You can choose to have the link expire in 1, 2, or 5 days; 1 week, 1 month, up to 1 year if needed.
  • Magic link users can be given View Only or Editor access to a project.
  • When a user accesses the platform via magic link, the activated link will show up in the Project Share window as 'Public Link' and the expiration date for the link will be shown as well.

🚀 Project and Order APIs

We’re also releasing our ‘public’ APIs and API keys!  These APIs will provide us the ability to integrate with applications in the future by passing data back and forth on the backend.  This will enable us to expand the eco-system around Tether in the future.

Note: This feature is hidden behind a flag so users cannot access or create API keys at the moment.

With this release, we are providing the ability to:

  • Create an API key
  • Use the API key to connect and make API requests

Right now the APIs are focused around two main areas:

  • projects/layouts and orders
  • Orders API will provide the ability to list all orders or specific one including data for customer order number, what project it’s for, what SPOs are associated, what the totals are, and more.
  • Project/layout API will provide data on project users, zones, products, element nodes (i.e. where things are placed), and more.
