Android Push Notifications are LIVE!

Hi everyone,

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.

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!

The thinking behind our home page redesign.

Yes, we’re live with a brand new home page, and we think it rocks, check it out here : www.producteev.com.

A few weeks ago we decided to redesign the Producteev home page. We liked the previous version, but we wanted to see if we could do better. Specifically we wanted to provide a better presentation of Producteev and its unique features. We were interested in less copy, more visuals, and a step by step presentation.

Down the road, we’ve noticed that visitors were mainly looking for three things: what we do, what makes us special, and how much the product costs. Based on feedback we focused on building a layout that would give all this information at a glance.
 
We came up with a fancy slideshow that first describes Producteev as an easy-to-use and cross platform task management application. Then we emphasized the fact that Producteev was great either if you use it as an individual or as part of a team. Finally, we highlighted the “mail-to-task” feature because we believe that one of our main goal is to get your tasks out of your e-mail inbox.
 
We also brought the sign up form right to the home page. We did it because we firmly believe that the best way to discover the added value of Producteev in your daily projects is to experience it by yourself instead of reading features descriptions here and there.
 
2012 has been a very exciting year so far. Lots of companies signed up for PRO accounts. We decided to give them some room on this new home page. We’re happy to introduce you to a few of them like Apple, Financial Times, Logitech, and lot of Small Businesses who make us proud to develop a better product for them, day after day. We’re looking forward to create a customer section on the website so we can present different successful use cases of Producteev in various industries.
 
We hope that this new home page will help building a wider and stronger Producteev community.
 
For reference, here was the previous design:

The new one:

Hope you enjoy it!

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

New Duplicate Workspace Feature!

You can now create a new workspace without retyping all of your tasks and labels!

Screen_shot_2012-04-16_at_11

This new and highly requested feature will let you create template workspaces.

You can start a template with pre existing tasks from another workspace to make your life easier.  This is especially helpful if you have a business and you want to create a new workspace for each of your projects that contain the same tasks.
You can duplicate: labels, colleagues, completed tasks and active tasks.  The colleagues that you invite will receive e-mail notifications with their invitation.

This feature is just available for the web app for now.  It is accesible from the workspace drop down list by hovering the workspace you want to duplicate.

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
