Acadia 8.1 & 8.2: Spring cleaning, plus a sneak peek at our new Edit Path
Making tasks more useful for viewers, smashing a bunch of bugs and getting ready for a new Edit Path experience.
When Punxsutawney Phil failed to see his shadow last month, we set our sights on an early spring and took an early start to spring cleaning.
Our last two months have been focused on making tasks more useful for viewers, smashing a bunch of bugs that popped up and getting ready for a new Edit Path experience.
8.1 Viewers can create their own tasks
In February, in 8.1, we released the ability for viewers to create their own tasks. Previously, viewers could only complete tasks assigned to them by others. Now viewers can create their own supplementary tasks to help make their workflow more seamless.
8.2 Automatic task ownership updates
This month, with the release of 8.2, we’re making another important change to tasks. Now, when the status of a task is changed, the ownership of that task will change to the current user.
For example, this task is assigned to Thom.
If Anthony performs the first subtask and marks it complete, the ownership of the task will revert to him.
That way, if Thom’s manager wants to know who completed each of the tasks, she can look in reports and see that Anthony worked on this procedure with Thom.
This month, we squashed a bunch of bugs. The most significant of these were fixed within the Settings and Evaluations sections. There were also several improvements made to the overall navigation experience on mobile.
Since the release of Document Evaluations in January, our focus has been on Edit Path, our document creating and editing wizard.
Based on user feedback, we are completely re-writing this feature. Don’t worry, it will have a very familiar user experience and you won’t need to learn anything new. In fact, the edit screen will now look closer to the published view, which will give you a better sense of what your final document will look like as you create it.
We’re also putting a lot of time into improving the overall performance of the wizard. You will notice a more responsive experience, particularly in documents with lots of content.
Other new features of note have been requested by many of you:
- Documents will autosave continuously as you work.
- You will also have the ability to have more than one document open at a time in different browser tabs or windows.
We’d love your input!
We never release a new feature without getting feedback from our clients first. If you would like to get a sneak peek at the new designs and interact with these new features, please contact your CSM. Your feedback will guide our final designs.
