GSL Solutions is pleased to announce the availability of a new version of HillTop. This release of the software is considered to be an incremental release and contains minor feature improvements and a number of bug fixes. Offices using the "Gold" version of HillTop are updated automatically.

What You'll Notice As Being Different:

  • An improved UI that hides some of the unnecessary “clutter” that doesn't get used frequently when adding content.
  • A new image picker that makes the process of selecting an existing image or uploading a new image much easier. You can even do batch uploads while editing a page.
  • We simplified the process of entering text blocks. We used to present you with a bunch of options that you really didn't need to fill out, the options are still there but we've hidden them so that you won't get confused.
  • The product now supports multi-step web-forms. Previously, a website visitor would have to enter information on one long form. Now, you can break those fileds up into multiple steps or pages for one form. The user will enter the requested data on the first form and then hit "next" and the the next form form page will be displayed. We've discovered that users are much more likely to complete long forms when they are presented this way.
  • When you mark a page or a form to be "inactive," it will no longer be displayed when you view "list all." This makes it much easier to manage and work with just the pages and forms that are actually being displayed on your website. The inactive pages and forms can still be accessed when you do an "advanced search" and ask the system to display all of the inactive items in a list.
