A new look for your task list

Yesterday we released a new design for the task list as well as a few minor improvements to the Producteev UI.


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.

Producteev for iOS7 is now available on the App Store

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!

Before / After:

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!

Update on the Producteev Developer Challenge

Hi everyone,

Just a quick update to let you guys know that we’re postponing the deadline to submit your app for our Developer Challenge to December 6th.

We haven’t received enough submissions just yet, but we have some great ideas being worked on as we speak, so we’d like to give everyone a chance to submit their app on time.

In the meantime, here are a few ideas for developers who want to participate but don’t really know what they could work on:

- A browser extension that lets you create a task out of a web page

- A browser extension that lets you track time spent on a task, and add it to Producteev as a note to the task.

- A github issue sync with Producteev

- Calendar sync : Gcal, CalDav…

- Windows Phone client

- Simple app (mobile or not) that lets you see your Producteev tasks due today, or your most important tasks, one day at a time.

- Integration with Evernote.

Good luck all!

To a great 2013! More team members, new version, and California love

Hi everyone,

Even though we’ve been a bit quiet on our blog since we’ve announced our acquisition by Jive a little over a month ago, we’ve been really hard at work.

Just thought I would update you guys on what’s going on.

BRAND NEW VERSION

Omg

Well, we’ve rolled up our sleeves and accelerated development on V4, which is our upcoming (KILLER) product update coming up Q1 of 2013.

V4 in a nushell is : way faster, brand new design, brand new apps, more collaborative features (we’re taking this to a whole new level), and lots of surprises.

We believe that this is going to be – by far – the best product we’ve ever shipped. We’re really proud of this one, and is the fruit of so many years learning from our users and customers.

CALIFORNIA

2012-12-11_18

We’ve started relocating our team to Palo Alto, CA, and can’t be happier with the team of Jivers we’re joining. Exceptional team of passionate individuals working on some very ambitious projects for the next couple of years. What’s even more exciting, is how commited they all are about making Producteev, and the Jive+Producteev integration a success. Trust me, you will love what’s coming out of this.

NEW HIRES

Welcome-new-employee

To be able to achieve all of those projects, we’re looking to grow our team, especially on two fronts : Front End Engineer, and Back End Engineer. If you got what it takes and want to change the Productivity landscape, Hit us up, or simply share those two offers with your network, this will definitely be a fun ride. As far as the location of those two jobs: either Paris, France (to start, then relocation to California), or Palo Alto, CA.

That’s it for now folks, so let me take this opportunity to wish you all a fantastic 2013 filled with love, joy and dreams.

Thanks for the continuous support, and stay producteev!

Ilan and Team

Mac App update: Notification Center + custom Badge!

Hi everyone!

Jerome here, it’s been a crazy week here but we’re more motivated than ever to continue improving Producteev! That’s why I’m really happy to tell you that we just updated the mac app.

Notification Center: OS X Mountain Lion offers a nice interface to display notifications and keep track of them. If you’re running ML, you will now receive your notifications in the notification center. If you’re still on Snow Leopard or Lion, don’t worry we kept growl support to display them.

Custom Badge: As we did on our iPhone app, you now have the choice between 3 settings for the badge of the app (late tasks, tasks that are due today or the Producteev Notifications). I’m pretty sure one of these will suit your needs!

Screen_shot_2012-11-08_at_11

Subtasks order: Last added subtask is now the first of the list. All of our apps have now the same order for subtasks.

And as always, this update includes some under the hood improvements and bugs fixing.

If you want to give us your feedback or if you need assistance, contact us on the support!

Jerome.

Producteev is iPhone5 ready + custom badges, and more!

Hi everyone,

You may probably have noticed, but we released two weeks ago a new version of the iPhone app.

iPhone 5 & iOS6:

Of course this version is 100% compatible with the new iPhone 5, you can see more tasks, more subtasks and more details at a glance. The app remains fully compatible with the other iPhones.

Custom Badge Setting:

You can now choose the behavior of the app’s badge: Go to the settings of the app to choose between your late tasks, tasks that are due today or the Producteev Notifications. Did you know that you can change your Producteev avatar just by tapping on it?

Screen_shot_2012-10-23_at_4

The Producteev Notifications remains the default behavior. We would like to thanks all the users who suggested us this idea, and hope you’ll all like it.

Subtasks order:

As you may have noticed, now the last subtask added becomes the first in the list. We introduced this change first on the web, then on the Android app and we’re now rolling it out on the iPhone and (very soon – Please Apple review it) on the Mac App.

Improved Collaboration:

We’ve turned the “team tasks” on by default, no extra step necessary to see your colleagues tasks. Of course you can still turn this feature off if you want to see only your task!

And of course this app includes a few bug fixes and under the hood improvements. If you have feedbacks or want to report a bug, contact us at support.producteev.com

Enjoy!

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.
Screenshot_2012-08-16-10-27-07
3. New popins design
All the popins of the app are now uniformed with a more user friendly design that displays user selections.
Screenshot_2012-08-16-10-27-31
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.
Screenshot_2012-08-16-10-28-48
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.
Screenshot_2012-08-16-10-29-55
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.
The Producteev Team.

[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.

Screen_shot_2012-07-23_at_3

+ 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.

The Producteev Team.
