Hey Episode Creators!
After testing and making sure it was ready for the community at large, we’re releasing the Portal Account Settings to everyone! This new section of the Writer Portal will let you customize things like what stories you and your readers can see and what kind of email notifications you’ll receive.
Where can I find these new settings???
In your Writer Portal (https://www.episodeinteractive.com/write), click on your profile icon in the right corner. You’ll see there are now two links under your basic profile information: “Account Settings” and “Notifications.”
If you don’t see the “Notifications” option, don’t worry, it just means you currently don’t have any notifications to read!
If you click the Notifications link, you’ll be able to access any messages you’d normally get through email without leaving the Writer Portal. (Convenient? YES.)
If you click the Account Settings link, you’ll see an updated Account Settings page that includes three tabs: Account Details, Story Settings, and Email Preferences.
Account Details works just like it always has, you can update your name and bio!
Story Settings allows you to manage your Active, Archived, and Unpublished stories. From this page, you can archive any of your Active stories, if you’d like them to no longer be discoverable, but still available to current and past readers. You can also unarchive any story you’ve previously archived, and hide unpublished stories from your story list altogether!
Email Preferences is where you go to adjust which email notifications you’d like to receive, or you can opt out of them entirely. I keep them all on, because I like having up to the minute details on my stories!
And that’s it! We’re always working on new ways to improve the Writer Portal experience for our creators, so let us know what you think about these features and what you’d like to see in the future.
The Episode Team
