Temporary suspension of justskore.it publishing from desktop app

We would like to inform all users of the Skore desktop application that the anonymous publishing feature justskore.it has been temporarily suspended since March 20th 2018. This has been caused by a change to one of the third party services that this feature is based on.

We will be returning the service as soon as we have completed the necessary updates to the product.

What is it?

The justskore.it feature in the desktop software allows a user to quickly and anonymously publish a .skore file to the internet. Anyone with the link can view the process created in Skore online.

The advantage of this feature is that you can quickly share ideas to anyone with an internet connection and a web browser. The downside is that the information is shared publicly and cannot be changed once it has been published.

How does it work?

The features uses https://github.com/ and saves the Skore xml data as a publicly available anonymous gist on the github service. As of March 20th 2018 github have ceased support for anonymous publishing therefore blocking Skore desktop app from publishing new processes to the service.

All previously posted processes will remain available. You can read more about the update from github here: https://blog.github.com/2018-03-20-removing-anonymous-gist-creation/

Solution

We are currently working on a new version of the Skore desktop software. This will include a new version of this feature which will allow publishing and sharing of the processes to our own servers. This will have the advantage of providing us more control over the data inline with data protection guidelines.

We are working to release this new version of the software over the next few months.

In the meantime users may consider saving your process as a .html file and uploading it to a service such as Sharepoint, OneDrive or WordPress.

Alternatively users should consider our web service. The Skore web service offers the ability to create and publish processes anonymous with the added advantage of being able to edit and update the process once published. This essentially means you can maintain a single URL link for any users to accesses the content. Examples of this feature include sharing processes embedded in a website or training material.

Our new freedom pricing model maybe suitable for users of the desktop software. Check out our pricing page for more information.

If you have previously purchased the desktop software we would be happy to talk about a discount to your first year.
