🚀 Launching Zulu Pro

Hello!

This is DJ and Oana, the founders of Zulu 👋🏻 

A couple of years ago, we started Zulu because we wanted to move away from browser bookmarks and save content in a visual, collaborative way. At the time, we couldn’t have imagined anyone else would find Zulu all that useful, other than perhaps a few of our close friends. But here we are today, with a community in the thousands! We can hardly believe it; we are deeply thankful to each and every one of you for using Zulu and for giving us your feedback and ideas on how to make it better. 

The slight downside of all this is that what used to be just a side project has become increasingly demanding for us to support, maintain, and update. And though we’ve tried for as long as possible to keep Zulu completely free, our running costs have made that infeasible. In order for Zulu to continue adding that bit of joy to your browsing experience, we’ve made the decision to introduce:

Zulu Pro - a paid plan, that allows you instant access to all the latest features, unlimited boards, quick support and much more! Zulu Pro will exist alongside a free plan, allowing up to 10 boards, as we wanted to make sure that part of Zulu continues to be accessible to everyone. See details of the two plans here.

And don’t worry - no changes will be immediate. All our existing users (signed up before 24th November 2020) will continue to have access to all Zulu features until December 31st. And if you’re keen and do upgrade before then, you’ll be suitably rewarded - as our first 50 subscribers get a 20% discount for life! 


Thank you for being part of the Zulu community! As always, we’d love to hear from you so don’t hesitate to get in touch.

DJ & Oana 🙂

Duplicate boards 💕

As we currently have no permissions or restrictions when you add collaborators to boards, we've created a "Duplicate board" feature to allow you to create a copy:


Open all board links

For those of you who...
- Like to start their browsing sessions with a regular set of links
- Save multiple links to a board to open at a later date
...we give you "Open all links"  💫

You can now open all links within a board:


Import bookmarks!

After many requests we've implemented a first version of import bookmarks, which you can find within the pull up menu.

Whether you're trying Zulu out for the first time, or grabbing some links from a previous bookmark tool / browser, you can upload an HTML file, and if you have multiple folders you'll be able to choose which ones you'd like to import!


New and improved sharing!

We’ve improved private sharing and introduced ‘public’ boards!

🌍 Public boards - we’ve introduced public boards so that you can allow anyone with or without a Zulu account to have read-only access to a chosen board. This can be useful if you’re creating a directory of links for new joiners, a team, newsletter, or even company-wide 👓

🔐 Private sharing - previously it wasn’t possible to invite someone to collaborate on a board unless they already had a Zulu account. We’ve changed that so now you can invite whoever you want to join a board with you. If they don’t have a Zulu account, they will receive an email and as soon as they've signed up, will have access to the board you’ve shared with them 💥

Of course, if you have any feedback, please let us know 🙏🏾😊
Thanks!

A board to enhance your workflow! 🏄

We've launched another board for you all, this time focusing more on workflow and process.

Now you can add your links to different columns and move them between. Some scenarios where this could be useful are:
- Tracking docs or activity-related links in Kanban columns (to do, in progress, done)
- Separating links by the phase of a project e.g research, design, prototype, testing etc.

If you have any other useful ideas for this, let us know! :)
