Jerome here, we’re still very busy at Producteev. We’ve just released an updated version of our Mac App (after staying 2 months under review at Apple!).
See below what’s new:
+ Because security matters, our app is now sandboxed! The Producteev app runs in its private and safe environment.
All your previous files and datas will be moved to the secured location during the first launch.
+ See your cross-workspaces notifications in the new “Overview” section of the Notification Window.
+ Keyboard shortcuts are real time savers: You can now use cmd+W or Esc key to close “Add a new Task” and “Notifications” windows
+ We slightly redesigned the collaborators windows, we hope you’ll like it.
+ Better “Reset Data” feature: No need to be logged in anymore and allows you to delete all the Producteev’s files on your Mac (Prefs, Databases, Caches).
+ Even if you don’t have Growl installed on your computer, you’ll be able to see local notifications.
We also fixed a few things, here is a non-exhaustive list :
- Main Window invisible (off the screen) after launch
- It was impossible to click on/select the scrollbar in some areas of the Task panel.
- “Create a Subtask” text field is no longer reset after a sync.
- Keyboard shortcut for 4* is now working.
- Freeze on Snow Leopard if trying to delete the last subtask.
- Font misaligned while editing a Label
- Color of workspace title in Task List for selected row in the Overview.
Hope you’ll like that update, download it here : http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/producteev/id450283360?mt=12
Jerome here, I’m happy to tell you that we just released an updated version of our iPhone app
This release does sport more than a new icon (we hope you’ll like it) and improved performances, we added a couple of important features and fixes:
- Files in Notes:
You can now add a picture or a short video (10 sec) to a note. And you’re now able to preview almost any kind of files right inside the app (Images, Videos, PDF, Office Documents, iWork Docs…)
- Timezone issue:
All dates in the app are now using your Producteev Timezone, this will prevent confusion for users who don’t have the same timezone in their web preferences and on their devices. Remember that you can change your Producteev Timezone in the Preferences of the app.
- Copy a task title:
Sometimes you need to copy/paste the title of a task in a text or an email. In your task list, just long press on a task!
- You can now add Labels and Subtasks in your native alphabet!
- We created a short tutorial to help you use the app, you’ll see it after your first login into the app.
- Completed Tasks are now at the bottom of your Task List for a few seconds then can be found in the “Completed” filters.
We hope you are going to like this one. If you want to share your thoughts about these news features or are experiencing bugs, please feel free to contact us.

Ismael here, I am very excited about a big announcement on the Producteev Android app:
- Push Notifications -
We know you all have been waiting for this feature and we proudly bring it to you today.
First of all, this feature is activated by default when you first sign-up or login into the app. You can check the status of the feature in the Account screen (open the Menu to access it).
An then, it is pretty seamless. The notifications you’ll receive are the same as the one you receive through emails:
Clicking on the notification will lead you to the task details screen up to date.
We hope you are going to like this one. If you want to share your thoughts about the feature or are experiencing bugs, please feel free to contact us.

Ilan here, I am very excited about a couple of announcements:
UPDATED DESIGN: MORE SPACE, BETTER ORGANIZED, FULL SCREEN NOTES
We’ve been trying to improve the design of our task detail (the third panel on the right) for a little while. We’ve received requests about the lack of space on the right, especially for the “Note” section. So, there you go, we made it MUCH better.
We’ve improved the layout and the way some of our features were presented, we put some in the top banner of the task detail, and the most important ones in the center of this panel, that is to say: due dates, assignation, label, priority and notes.
We’ve also added 20% more space to the task panel. But we thought we could still do better to let you enjoy collaboration around Notes in a better way.
You can now put your Notes on each task in “Full Screen”, and that’s awesome. No more explanation needed I guess, just way more space for discussions around tasks.
NEW HOT FEATURE: TASK FOLLOWERS
We had that feature baking for a while, you could already add followers to a task by mentioning people (@john for instance) in the note section, but it wasn’t enough.
Now, if anyone from your team needs to be aware of changes around a task, without being in charge of it, this feature is for you.
Example: there are five people in your team. You’re Bill, the CEO, there’s John, the manager below you, and there are 3 people, directly working with John: Sarah, Jack and Phil. If you want to assign a task to Sarah, and simply want John to be able to track that task, add him as a follower, and let the magic happen.
The follower of a task gets notified when a note is posted, there’s a change in the assignee or when the task gets checked off.
You can easily unfollow any task by mousing over the “following” button which turns into “unfollow”.
Anyone can add one of his colleagues as a follower of a task.
For many users, this feature will totally replace a “multi-assign” functionality.
We keep working on improving your experience on each of the platforms we’re supporting, hope you like this one guys!
After the long wait (thank you for your patience), the subtasks feature has been released in the latest Android update. Download it here : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.producteev.android.alpha22.
Right from the task details screen, you will be able to see the subtasks associated to it. If you click on the subtasks list, you will access the edit screen where you can add, delete (long click), check on/off and change the title (simple click) of a subtask.
This is pretty much following the same flow as the web app and the other native apps. The drag and drop re-ordering will come soon.
**This major feature release requires a complete upgrade of your local producteev database. If you decide to update the app, you will be logged out and on your next login, a complete fresh sync will occur for a few moment. All data -all tasks, workspaces, labels, notes- not synced with the web app will be lost, so make sure you do a full sync before the update.**
Please let us know if you have any comments or questions. The next features will be the social logins (google and facebook sign on) and the Android native push notifications.
Looking forward to your feedback.
The Producteev Android Team.
The sync feature runs as a Background Task so you don’t have to wait until sync is finished before leaving the app
This new sync makes it faster to synchronize with other Producteev platforms.
Our new QuickFilters selector is simple! Just swipe up to open and you will save time. You can still long press the button too.
In the Task LIst, you can set a reoccurring task as done and it will now display it’s next due date. We also fixed a few things:
Go update it here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/producteev/id306289289?mt=8
Now the new iPhone App can do just about everything, so you can be more productive!
With the added subtasks feature you can now: view, edit, create, reorder or set your subtasks as done! All your existing subtasks will be synced at first launch.
We have also included Push Notifications with sound that is now enabled.
You can now create a new label on any of our apps by typing a hashtag before the word and your new label will appear. Example: #yournewlabel will automatically create a new label called #yournewlabel.
You can now turn on and off your team’s tasks! This feature gives you the option to view only your tasks or to view everyone’s tasks in your workspace. We have also fixed various display bugs on the App making it more perfect and user friendly.

PS: Yes, subtasks are coming very very soon to our other apps
Once set on your Home screen, the widget allows you to quickly view your tasks (status, title, due date, priority, repetition). Use the arrows to navigate it in your task list. You can check done or undone tasks directly on your widget. If you need to do more actions, just click on a task and you will be led to the task details for full control of your task.
The Producteev icon opens the app and the top right icon opens a dialog to quickly create a task in your to-do list. The widget’s task list is also customizable. Click on the widget’s title bar and an option panel allows you to select a workspace, a filter or a label, and a sort for the widget tasks list.
As a first version and still in beta, we need your feedback to improve our Product, so please contact us if you have anything to share.
Now, go update it on the Android Market!
Daily and weekly review are proven methods for getting things done. We’ll go into greater depth in an upcoming post.
This is a sample of the Weekly Digest, which is activated by default and sent at 4pm local time every Friday. The Daily Digest is mailed at 6am local time and is not activated by default.
To adjust digest options:
Tasks from all workspaces are included, and teams receive information on assigned tasks and team activity. Here’s to making good use of a helpful Producteev feature, enjoy!
