Feature Release // List View & View Forms

Happy Feature Friday! It’s a wonderful December the 3rd, and where I’m at, it’s the beginning of what’s called ‘Christmasville’ here in Rock Hill (South Carolina). It could not be a more perfect and beautiful time, and on such a great day, we do come bearing some great gifts!

List View

Now funny enough, there are features that I get excited about, that no one seems to care about: small, nuanced, and subtle things that may make worklife a tiny bit better…this is not one of them. However, this IS that very thing for some people I know (cough customer cough partner cough many people not like me). So, working our way through our priorities, I finally decided to pick this up, realizing I probably should have had this much earlier on. So, without any further ado, I present you, the List View:

List View on The Client Portal
List View on the Propage

Lists in all their glory. List views are available on The Propage and Client Portal, and can be simply toggled on and off in the top-right of the page. Also, list views do have a right-click action for any sub-actions you may need, although it does not support drag and drop. Lastly, there is a Notes touch point on every item…more to come on this. But Enjoy!

View Forms

Now, for all Redocd Stream meeting notes, snippets and articles, View Forms are available. These not only provide a polished look and feel, but prepare Redocd for many very cool initiatives we have planned which require locking down an article written in Redocd…

View Form on a Stream meeting note

There’s a few fun things you will want to make note about these view forms:

  • They are dynamically sized: Unless you author a full page wiki, the view forms only pop-up to the size you need them. If you store some very important, but very little environment information for your latest product, opening the file won’t open an entire full page editor. It’s a much cleaner experience, and really helps with “snappy-ness”
  • Just double-click to open into Edit mode. Or use the toggle in the top-right. Super easy to go back and forth
  • Checkboxes are ‘checkable’ in View forms, so no need to toggle to Edit mode to simply update a checklist

Copy and Paste Linkshare

Another quick win that I may have backlogged for a little too long, you can now paste any URL or link-shared document directly into your Propage, Flashpage or Client Portal. Redocd will render the card on the fly, and allow you to put it right where it needs to go.

So…

here’s to the month of December! It’s truly a magical time here in Rock Hill, and you should come to Christmasville. And if you’re also here, pop by the office, have a coffee, and also see what’s coming next for Redocd.

Feature Release // Sharing and Checklists

Good Tuesday Morning! Since we deployed this past Friday, I wanted to start getting in the habit of posting feature releases because we are deploying some really cool stuff; not just bug fixing and optimizations…although those are just a natural part of software development. So without further ado…

Sharing Direct

It’s here, and just as you would imagine. Share directly with a teammate, or share with a Client who is on your client portal. While the app already had a Share button, it was only for a direct linkshare. Now you can share directly in the app without having to send a link.

The Share feature was not much of a focus for us until recently, as I wanted the ‘space itself’ to be the share. But, business is business, and we (and our customers) needed to quickly send a file with an email notification.

Checklists…Just the Beginning

This one is somewhat controversial for me. Because when you add checkboxes, people naturally try to turn any list into a full on, blown up Project Management software. But, we couldn’t avoid it either as Redocd is intended to live ‘between’ your Chat app (e.g. Slack) and your Project Management app (e.g. Jira, Trello). So Checklists are here, and are intended for things such as: follow ups discussed in a meeting, or things you need to do for your client…or simply that list of to-dos that the team needs to follow up on that aren’t specifically delivery tasks (i.e. like writing code or building designs…tasks that should live in Jira or the like).

Slack Integration isn’t here yet, but Checklists are. Redocd is a great place to put to-do’s for the team rather than everything living in a Slack channel or email.

Notes…also a VERY early beginning

I cannot wait to show you what our plans are for next year with regards to “Notes”, but this truly is the very beginning of where we want to take Redocd. The word ‘metadata’ could be used, but it has pretty much been ruined in the industry as simply a way to track people for advertising purposes. Fortunately, we are only using metadata for assets, projects, files…THINGs. Not people. And for YOUR teams’ benefit, not anyone elses. For now though, simply add a note to any card in the system (a file, a linkshare, etc.) More to come on the use cases for this…

I’m very excited to show you how these notes can be used properly. There will be other metadata fields as well in the future, but for now, it’s already powerful for managing all of that ‘atomic content’ you and your team need to store.

No Black Friday here, but..

It’s really an exciting time for us here at DreamLeader. We have some big checkpoints coming early December, and it will help determine the course of the company and product. I can’t share everything here yet, but we do have a partnership program open until December 7th that you may want to consider for your team. Essentially, the current program is petabyte of free storage for your entire organization or team. This of course is with a reasonable $7/month/user subscription fee. We’re doing this now as we are only focused on true partnerships that align well with our vision.

If you are interested and think your team would be a good fit, check out our Pricing page – this mostly likely will offset any costs you and your company gets for drive storage and many others.

Until next Release.
