What's new in Ceros

New Password Standards

We are strengthening our Password Standards to a 10-character minimum. This can be a combination of upper/lowercase, numbers, and special characters, but excludes the use of emojis in your password.

We are committing to this change in order to future proof our password security requirements and meet enterprise security expectations.

Beginning on March 28th, Ceros users will be prompted to reset their passwords upon their next visit to admin.ceros.com.

If you are a MarkUp user and use the same email for your MarkUp account as you do your Ceros account, you will have two options:

  • Log in to Ceros using your MarkUp password. MarkUp already requires the strengthened security standards and your Ceros and MarkUp accounts will already be linked.
  • Follow the instructions to reset your Ceros password to a new 10 character minimum password. When you reset your password in Ceros, your Markup password will also be reset to that same password.

Note: If your account is currently using SSO, you will not need to reset your password.

General Studio Updates

We fixed a bug in which the Hotspot path edge detection did not work properly when inside of a rotated group.

We fixed a bug in which some Inspector Panel input fields did not support decimals. The following fields now support decimals:

  • Animation delay (on view and on hide)
  • Animation duration (on view and on hide)
  • Synced object width
  • Synced object height
  • On view interactions delay

Skip to Main Content

For those using assistive technology, constantly having to tab through headers or navigation to get to the main content below can be slow and tedious. Skip to main content allows this audience to jump directly to the core of your experience instantly, with no need for the creator to build out any interactions.

Simply define the main area of your content using our HTML sections feature - from there, we’ll automatically create a hidden link that only appears to screen readers and keyboard users (once they hit the tab button) which allows them to instantly jump right to it. You can also customize the link text via the Accessibility tab in your Experience Settings.

Experience Language

Screen readers need to know the primary language of any web experience in order to speak in the correct language/dialect. Ceros experiences default to English, but now provide control over the experience language via your Experience Settings.

Scroll to Object

‘Scroll to object’ brings improved accessibility to scroll to interactions by targeting the exact object the user's keyboard focus will shift to, which is key when dealing with content nested within groups.

As an example, consider an experience where each section of content is grouped together. In this situation, ‘scroll to position’ will shift keyboard focus to the nearest parent object, which would be the top of an entire section. However, with ‘scroll to object’ the designer can shift the audience's keyboard focus directly to the CTA nested deep within that section by targeting it specifically.

As an added bonus, if your layout changes there’s no need to update anchors as your interaction is tied to the object rather than a position on the page.
