Backdate and Re-order

Arrange your publications in the order you want. Curate your content and take control of your profile page. You can now backdate and re-order your past publications, saving yourself the time and hassle of re-uploading multiple publications by release date.  

Embedded Videos

Create a smoother multimedia experience with our new video embeds. Premium/Optimum users can now embed YouTube and Vimeo videos directly onto pages in your publications, so your readers can seamlessly browse pages and watch video without skipping a beat.

Stories gives you the opportunity to mobile-optimize your content, so your readers can experience your publication on-the-go, and new audiences can find your content with a quick glimpse of each Story. We are curating the best Stories on issuu.com/stories, on Issuu’s social media feeds, and in our weekly Top Stories email. Share your Stories using #IssuuStories for a chance to be featured.
