After a successful migration we have a host of new updates waiting to be released. Announcing the first batch of new features and enhancements today. Take a look and hope it simplifies the way you and your team manage your projects and work.
Open Task Lists
DeskAway’s permission-based task system is great but when you want to open up your tasks to every team member within your project it could became a bit confusing. Though, you could easily assign the task to ‘Anyone’ but then there would not be a person responsible for that task. Or you could assign the task to Mr. X and then cc the same task to all your team members. Painful if there are a lot of team members. Hence,
Today, we have added (in addition to the permission-based system that a lot of people love) a new concept called ‘Open Task List’. By making a Task List open, all tasks under only that particular Task List becomes visible/accessible to all your team members (Super, Regular & Limited) of that project. Anyone would be able to track, close, add time, comment and upload files to an Open Task List task.
So, if you have a bunch of tasks that you want to assign to A and B but have everyone in the team know about and track their progress, go ahead and create an Open Task List and add those tasks within it.
3 more Options for Recurring Tasks
Earlier you could set the following options for recurring tasks:
Today, we give you 3 more requested option:
Team View Filters
To make it easy to sort through you team members (some DeskAway users have more than 100 team members) we have added a new filter on the team page. This should make it easy to view team members by Company or by their type - Super, Regular or Limited.
File Folder & Subfolder Differentiation
A tiny usability change to the user interface of the Files section. You can now easily differentiate between Folder (in Bold now) & Subfolder names.
Revamped Timezone Dropdown
To make your life easier we have added a new time zone drop down while signing up and adding a new team member. This one shows the +/- GMT and even has most of the popular cities of the world so you should not spend time finding your correct time zone!
Hope you like these features. Do let us know what you think!
