I am glad that its an option and we can decide if we want to use it or not.
So glad this feature came to stay! I love it
@Liz it seems its not working as you described.
My story had 45 published chapters (45 was published 2.2. - so more than 7 days ago).
I yesterday published 46 - the final chapter of the story and added early access - so if I understand right ONLY the last chapter should have been affected by the early access.
But I have a reader who for the purpose hasn’t read 45 after it was published and now I got DM that it is not allowing her to read without early access the last 2 chapters!!!
So I am fearing now that new reader to the story will get early access from the start.
Please can you check the system that it really doesn’t affect already published chapters?
As you can see the 45 in my portal looks like it’s not affected by it, but in reality it as it seems is.
No matter that I haven’t for purpose updated it to avoid readers having to reread it.
If it helps the story is Secret of the Necklace - I can send you the link if needed.
Everything has a double-edged sword, the positive side is to support the authors more and the bad side, the readers have no patience in reading the story
Sorry to hear you are having an issue with Early Access! The best and fastest way to get help with this is to contact our support team here: https://episodesupport.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
Ask your reader to take and send you the screen shot of her story card or recording, it helps! Early access is shown at the end of the previous chapter so it can be confusing for some people. Like now they see the screen at the end of chapter 45. But if she indeed sees it at the end of 44 and it doesn’t let her read 45 it’s interesting.
When we will get these access
its already availible
It is check the site
Your episode portal site when you go to publish it is available.
I know its availible. I have said that already in my post above.
