How To Open The Changelog With JS

Triggering the changelog is really easy. We handle closing of the changelog so all you need to do is install the code snippet from your ProductFlare dashboard in the changelog builder popup. 

After you have the code installed, you can trigger the changelog by calling a single function in Javascript:

Function name: 

initChangelog("","this must be the Room ID string found in the URL in your dashboard when you click the Room on the left") 

This will open the changelog and either animate it, or if you have changelog animation disabled it will show it instantly. 

If you need any help getting this set up, please let us know!
