Our recent development has been focused on addressing prioritised items from your feedback and progressing the wider product roadmap. Release 1.10 includes a wide range of bug fixes, enhancements and a few new features to boot.
Let's get into the new features…
We heard your feedback on the troublesome nature of being able to quickly take stock of your promises, and keep track of promises over time through the Today, This Week & Later tabs in the My Promises screen.
To resolve this we've made a few improvements:
We've implemented a simpler two tab layout, split by This Week and All. The This Week tab displays all of your promises that require an action within the current calendar week (Monday to Sunday). While the All tab always displays all of your promises regardless of their due date or status. Both tabs are sorted by due date so you can always see when you need to action your promises by.
Our intention here is to give you a simplified view of what you need to action in the week, via the This Week tab. And, to give you a way to more easily find any other promises that may previously have been hidden from view in the Today, This Week & Later tabs due to their changing due date or status, via the All tab.
Firstly, the red promise notification within the app, that also contributes to the app's overall notification or badge count along with unread messages, is a count of any promises that require your immediate action, i.e. any promises that are overdue, new or due today. This is to give you a top level notification when you have timely actions to complete.
Secondly, we've added counts of the promises to the This Week & All tabs, and the sections within those tabs, so that you can quickly see how many promises you've got at any point in time. We've also made the sections within the tabs collapsible so you can more easily take stock of your promises by when or how you need to action them.
Promises has been promoted in the main navigation menu on destkop & mobile to give greater prominence and visibility of when you have promises that need to be actioned.
You can now group promises in scoreboards. Each scoreboard, within a stream, can have multiple groups and promises can be put into those groups. Groups will calculate a score, and display a red, amber or green status, based on the average status of the promises within the group.
Groups can be used for a number of things, from enable greater flexibility & customisation in performance views & reporting from the scoreboard, to implementing business management methodologies like OKR's and Balance Scorecard Reporting.
We've added the ability for you to have a private stream with yourself for note taking, files & promises and various other bits & bobs. Chatting to yourself in Samewave isn't crazy, it's useful!
Where's that file? The Files section now has a handy tab menu to filter files between media and documents, so you can find that file you're always looking for. Look out for a Links tab in the next release.
That's a wrap on the features in this release. As usual there's a treasure trove of bug fixes & enhancements as well. A full change log included below.
