TR5 Announcement (Summer 2018)

Big news! TreeRing is about to get way faster and way easier to use.  Coming this summer 2018!

We'll spare you all the technical stuff (no more Flash!), but we've been working to completely overhaul the way TreeRing works and the way it looks. And we think you're going to love it.

We don't have an official launch date yet, but we're confident it will be this school year. We hope you're as excited to use it as we are to release it.

Not only will the new app look great, it will also be easier and more enjoyable to use. Here are just a few of the ways we're improving the new TreeRing:

  • Easier — Find the photos and graphics you're looking for in less time with continuous vertical scrolling (no more mouse right arrow mouse clicks), easily locate your print ready status, and more clearly see whether you purchased a book yet
  • Faster — Watch your portrait page changes happen right away, plus experience zippier page loads and search results
  • More Accessible — All of TreeRing will work on tablets/iPads and much of the site will be accessible via mobile browsers as well.

Right now, there's nothing you need to do. We're furiously working to get this update out as soon as it is ready. We'll reach out soon to give you more details, like when you can give the new TreeRing a try, when there will be training opportunities, and when we'll be rolling out the changes to everyone

Aaron & the entire TreeRing Team

    Good riddance - Flash has its uses - but not in this context. Thank you!

    So it says we are on TR5 and that we can't use flash but then doesn't let me do anything. I can't find an article with how to proceed

    Hi Karen - We are in the process of getting all of the Help Center articles updated and sorry for the inconvenience. I checked your account and it has been upgraded to TR5. I was able to log into your account with no issues. It is currently best to use Chrome browser for TR5. If you continue to have issues please contact customer support.

    I want to edit my yearbook aka make it. Every time I click "edit" or "yearbook" or any other link that should let me edit the book, I get a pop-up notification that says "Congratulations you've been upgraded to TR% etc you can no longer edit in flash" but then there is no further action available?

    We were able to log in and look at various themes over the last several days but today we are getting the same message about TR5 and how we can no longer edit using flash. I push the OK button but nothing happens. We are using Chrome browser.

    I am having the same problem as everyone else. I try to edit the Yearbook, and it says, "Congrats, this book is upgraded to TRS. You can no longer edit this book in flash" How do I fix this? I am using Chrome.
