Yesterday the team (special recognition to Senior Engineer Julien Rousseau for his work on this) released a new design for the task list as well as a few minor but definitely noticeable improvements to the Producteev UI. To summarize:
|Assigned users||Up to 4 assignees can now be displayed in a row. A circle with the number of extra assignees will be displayed in the event that a task has more than 4 assigned users.|
|Project now displayed in task||The task project is now displayed in the task list next to the assigned users. Clicking on the project title lets users move the task to another project right from within the task list.|
|Check boxes||vs.||Check boxes in the task list are now represented by circled rather than squares to avoid confusion with bulk selection check marks.|
|Task labels||vs.||The labels are now accompanied by a colored icon|
And finally, new help tooltips have been added in various locations. You can hover over certain actions to see what you can do.
These changes as well as a few minor UI updates are now available in the Producteev Jive integration as well. Producteev community, what do you think?
Good news, iPhone users!
The iOS 7 version of Producteev is now available on the App Store. On top of providing full iOS7 compatibility, this update is all about “I don’t know what they changed, but I’m glad they did it” (see before/after screenshots at the end of the post). You will immediately notice a color change with way less contrast (that’s Senior Engineer Julien Rousseau's magic touch).
We've also slimmed the font to make the app a little more clean and readable. You may also notice a simplified calendar/date picker tool which we will go into more depth about next time. The new look and feel of the app leads to a better experience and users can focus on getting things done. Many thanks to Producteev iPhone developer Jerome Miglino!
This update is also packed with tons of little changes, improvements and fixes. Since our launch in May, this is the biggest update we have released! If you don’t want to update to iOS 7, the app remains fully compatible with iOS 6.
Until next time!
