Android Update! Lots of UX and design improvements

 Hi mates.

Ismael here. I am very excited today, we just rolled out a new update for the Android application:
Release v1.1.8 UI/UX Improvements.
1. New workspaces screen.
Your workspaces list has been redesigned. First of all, the input field has been taken away from the list and is available when you click on “Add”. Also, this is now where you will find the link to your Account screen (yes, here at the highest hierarchy of the app).
Screenshot_2012-08-16-10-26-53
The workspaces are now bigger, clearer, more reactive, and display new info such as the admin, the number of colleagues and the number of active tasks in it. If you click on the right bottom triangle, you will access the 4 options of the workspace: rename, invite, make it default and delete/leave.
2. New input for the task, dashboard, label, note and subtask creation/edition
The input is now more Androidish since it is a simple dynamic popin.

3. New popins design
All the popins of the app are now uniformed with a more user friendly design that displays user selections.

4. New filter per user
We introduce a new kind of filter, the user filter, that has been in the web application for a while now. When you select a user via this filter, you will only see the tasks the user is responsible or creator. If you select Team’s tasks, you will see all the tasks in the workspace.

5. Filters saved per workspace
The filter, label and user you select to customize your task list are now saved per workspace. Once again, we try to make the experience close to the web application.
6. New deadline screen
A picture is worth a description. I hope you will like it.

7. Stability and Sync improvements
We received some complaints from Android 4.0 and above users. We identified the issue and everything should be running smoothly. Hopefully no more crashes and the sync engine is now automatic when you open the app. For the widget, a “Refresh” button has been added. You have the control of the widget update and consumption now.
That’s all folks! I am not talking about the mini-tweaks you will discover throughout the use of the app. If you want to say something, comments, encouragements, critics, bugs, improvements… Please we are for you:
I would like to thank our beta testers that have been very helpful and always come out with pertinent feedback, especially Jamie, Michal and Kevin.

[Mac app] New update with a bunch of new things and fixes

Hi everyone,

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

iOS app update: upload files in your notes, preview files, new icon and more!

 Hi everyone,

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…)

Screen_shot_2012-07-10_at_2

- 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!

But also:
- 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.

New on the Web App: New design, more space, task followers (Hot!)

 Hi everyone,

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.

New_td

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.

Full_screen

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.

Followers

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!

Subtasks now on the Producteev Android app!

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.

Sc20120514-165856

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.

Our iPhone Update has faster sync, quickfilters, and shows the next due date on completed reoccurring tasks!

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:

  • Saved Quickfilter tab (Starred, Late, Today) displays the correct filtered view after launch.
  • Editing a Label’s name no longer creates a new one in some cases.
  • Sync error when creating a label with the same name as another.
  • Removing all the labels from a task is now possible

Go update it here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/producteev/id306289289?mt=8

Subtasks are Now Available on the iPhone App!

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.

Update your iPhone app here : http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/producteev-cross-platform/id306289289?mt=8

PS: Yes, subtasks are coming very very soon to our other apps

Android app: Our widget is out!

To all of you Android fans, we’ve got great news, our Producteev Android app, now has beautiful widgets!
Thank you very much for your patience. We tried to make a widget as elegant as useful.
You can choose between 2 versions, or 2 sizes to be more precise: Large and Medium.
The large one displays 6 tasks and 2 tasks for the medium one.
 

 

Sc20120222-162840

 

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.

Sc20120222-163044

 


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.

Sc20120222-163353

 


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!

 

Thanks,The Producteev Android Department ;)
