Introducing the New AddThis Tool Configurator

We are excited to announce the release of our new Tool Configurator redesign! Here at AddThis, we are constantly working hard to make our tools as easy to use as possible. This way, you can spend less time worrying about your website and more time focusing on everything else you have going on in your life.

The new Tool Configurator uses tabs to navigate settings.

The biggest change you’ll notice to the Tool Configurator is a switch from a nested panel design to tabs. We heard from many of our AddThis users that diving into sub panels made navigating the Tool Configurator confusing. Switching to tabs creates a more simplified process and allows for easier navigation.

Additionally, we reorganized the settings in every tool type into logical groupings. Now you can quickly make edits to your buttons and tools and may even discover new settings you didn’t know existed.

Share Counter settings used to be spread across different channels. Now they all live in one tab.

For more experienced users, you’ll notice the “Advanced Settings” menu has been replaced with a “Behavior” tab. What may have seemed like random settings in the past now have been moved to their respective, sensible tabs.

The “Behavior” Tab replaces the old “Advanced Settings” sub panel. Settings in “Advanced Settings” that pertained to other tabs have been moved to their respective tab.

With all the new changes, we hope you enjoy using the Tool Configurator and ease of the navigation! If you need any help, feel free to contact our Support Team at support@addthis.com or tweet us at @addthissupport.
