Leave private notes on mentors

We've added a new "private note" feature in your chat dropdown menu! This allows you to leave private notes that are only visible to you for each mentor.

We recommend leaving notes for information like timezone, a summary of your previous communication or session with the mentor, deadlines, agreements made with the mentor, and more!

View profiles and hire mentors more quickly from your requests

We've made it easier for you to view mentor profiles of interested and recommended mentors on your request.

From the new profile window, you'll also be able to message the mentor, start a session, or hire for a freelance job!

We've rebuilt our mobile app

We've released a new version of our mobile apps for iOS and Android that have been rebuilt from the ground up.

  • Improved security with new authentication flow
  • More stable notifications
  • Faster loading time for chat messages
  • More information displayed in-app for "desktop only" messages (e.g. start session, scheduled session)

Have you had a chance to try out the new app yet? Let us know what you think!

Note: If you signed up with a social account, you'll need to "reset" your password from this page. Once complete, you'll be able to log in with your email and new password.

Updates to the freelance job form

We've made a change to the form you use to create freelance jobs. You'll now be required to fill out "deadline" and "deliverables" when creating a job. Please be sure to confirm all project details with the mentor prior to creating a job!

New session room experience

We're super excited to share something we've been working on: a whole new mentorship session experience! 🎉

Below are a few major changes we've made:

  • 🖥All new UI to make it easier to see the current status of the session, for new users to start a session, and to use your favorite audio/video software.
  • 💬New session room chat: your chat messages from before a session will carry over to the session room, and vice versa.
  • ⚙️Under-the-hood improvements to make your session room experience more reliable and secure.

New mentorship request form

We've updated our request form for mentorship and live 1:1 help to make it even easier for you to find mentors for live sessions.

The new form will ask you to provide more details about what you need help with, including the type of help you need and estimated hours. When filling the request form out, we highly encourage you to provide as many details as possible — this will speed up finding the right mentor!

We redesigned your dashboard!


We wanted the new dashboard to be focused on your experience. So with that in mind, we've made it easier for you to find and get help from mentors, contact our support team, share feedback, and see what’s new on Codementor. You can also set up a payment method and buy credits straight from the dashboard.

If you’re a new user, we added a “set up list” so you can hit the ground running. 🏃
