Looking back at the past two roadmap articles (1st & 2nd), we noticed that publishing articles about the evolution of our solution has been very beneficial for us. We gathered even more feedback because we shared early designs and functionalities.

It also helps us manage our priorities for the coming months. And finally, all of your encouragement gives us more motivation and confidence that we are going in the right direction.

Now, onto what you are really interested in: the upcoming features. These features will please many of you, since they are feature requests that have long been put on hold, until now...

I know you want to scroll down, so here they are:

  • Time tracking
  • Subtasks
  • Message edition

There are more, but these three will come to life thanks to all your feedback.

Time tracking

So yes, you will soon be able to track how much time you and your team spend on each task. This feature is still in conception, specifically around the dashboard feature.

One thing is for sure, Time Tracking is coming!


Early design for Time Tracking

Subtasks

Because one simple task can turn into much more than expected, we often need to divide tasks into smaller bits, or subtasks. Subtasks can also be very useful for making checklists and processes.

You can already track subtasks in the task description, but that was more of a work-around. You will soon be able to add real subtasks, and track the advancement with a progression bar.

Here is what it will look like:

Message edit

Another feature that was really craved by our users is the editing capability for messages throughout the application. Because sometimes you realize, only later, that what you wrote isn’t exactly on par with your best thought, or that there is an occasional typo.

This will soon be part of the past with the upcoming message edition feature. You will be able to edit all messages, from timeline posts and comments, to task-card comments!

Notification digest email

We are working on improved email notification. The idea is to send a digest email with all the latest unread notifications instead of sending each individual notification as they occur.

The goal is to reduce the amount of emails sent, have a clearer and more complete email, declutter your email inbox, and bring more cohesion in the notifications between the web and mobile apps.

Here is an early design of the notification digest email:

General subject

We will be introducing the General Subject in Azendoo too. The General Subject will replace the "Sharing on Workspace" that you currently have by default every time you type in a message on your Activity timeline.

This subject will dynamically include every single member of the Workspace. There will be one General Subject for each Workspace, and it will become the default Subject to share on. It will also become the new way to address all Workspace members.

You will be able to identify the General Subject thanks to its dedicated icon.

Integrations windows

Adding a file from Dropbox and Box soon will be a little different. We will integrate the native windows from both services, just as we did with the OneDrive integration.

We are doing this to have more consistency and sharing possibilities. Plus, they will always be up-to-date with their respective service.

Here are screenshots of the said windows:

Improved task description

The task description is a crucial space for all of us working with Azendoo. There, we type in important information and sometimes need to structure our thoughts a little better.

That's why we are working on a task description improvement. You will soon be able to format your text with headings and numbered lists, while the overall stability and performance will be improved.

Activity timeline filter

Because the activity timeline includes both activities around tasks and messages, we will provide you a filter allowing you to isolate conversations for an increased visibility on the Workspace.
