We haven’t done a blog post in a little while about the many small things that Santa’s Helpers are always busy developing in Santa’s Workshop at Chargify.

Lots of little things are always being added, and they usually appear on our Changelog.

Here are all 11 new things that have been quietly added to Chargify over 6 weeks from Halloween until now.
