It's extremely convenient to have everything on the same page. Without having to switch context or having to remember all the application you have to check during the day to see what's new. You probably have specialized tools for billing, marketing campaigns, or product development.
Today we are introducing a new page type, the File Document. The file document is similar to all of our other page types. It holds just one individual file but adds all the Samepage goodness: Chat, tasks, events, adds a flexible preview, and automatic file versioning.
Subscription management is not a core collaboration feature and not something you think about as part of the user experience. It's not something you use every day. If it gets the job done, why change?
Most companies are always on the lookout to save money. Especially now as many of them are under some form of lockdown and the world economy heads toward a depression, finding cost savings is critical. How can yet another productivity app help save you some money then? Let's take a look at the problem of context switching.
In the second part of my response, I shared my thoughts on Porsche, continuous improvement, the Toyota Way, and product redesigns.
This redesign is the result of a long process of listening to our customers and prospects. As with all major changes in a product, there are bound to be people who are unhappy. One prospect took the time to write me a long letter explaining why this redesign was terrible and misguided.
Dear Friends and Customers, Last Friday we introduced for new signups a new version of Samepage featuring a substantially reworked and improved user interface, as well as some important changes in functionality. This is a major redesign effort and it's not complete yet. In this article we want to explain why we are changing Samepage, what is different in the new interface, and what this will mean for you.
As the global impact of COVID-19 continues to spread and affects millions of people and businesses around the globe, Samepage is committed to helping our customers and users survive and thrive in this very challenging and unprecedented time in history.
Working from home can be challenging. There are a lot of distractions from work that you would ordinarily do when you arrive home from work - like laundry. Keep in mind that not blending your free and work time together is crucial; otherwise, you will lose balance and will either work too much or not work hard enough.
If only typing on mobile was easier. The keyboard is too small, your fingers might be frozen due to winter, and the whole endeavor of texting what you meant to your teammates is driving you crazy! Thankfully Samepage is always looking for the best user experience. Instead of typing a message, you can record a voice message and attach it to the chat. Not only is it convenient, but it also preserves the tone. No more confusion or unnecessary conflict over what you meant by that sentence.
On February 14, we had a serious, though a brief, incident in which open team chat message content was sent to all guests in your organization via email and/or push notifications who should not have received those notifications.
At the end of December 2019, we've released the new type of collaborative document - task boards. It was a big experiment to see whether this type of content could improve the way you collaborate on Samepage. And it was an obvious hit. We see now that you love task boards and use them more and more.
Are your teams using one application for task management, another for storing documents, and third one for a chat? What if there was a product that combined these features?
All you need is to click on the "Enable auto-call" button in the edit event dialog. When the event starts, phones and computers of all event participants will start to ring. This way, it's much easier to get everyone in the call.
Are you afraid you are the only workaholic around? We have done extensive research, and to our surprise, we found out that there are a lot of people working during holidays.
Last week we released one of our most significant features for Q4. The tasks boards (aka kanban). With the task boards, it was never easier to manage a project in Samepage. You can define your workflow with custom columns and quickly move tasks around with a mouse. Pretty easy and straightforward.
Today is a big day that marks the future of Samepage development. We have a new document type called Task Board to please all the task lovers and project managers.
When on a call on Samepage, you now can react with an emoji to let others know what exactly you feel about the discussed topic. It shows with animation, so it gets noticed and then fades away as the topic of discussion changes.
It happens to all chats with multiple people eventually. Several distinct questions get asked at the same time, and people start chatting about them one over another. Various topics get discussed, replied, argued about, forgotten, lost, found, started over, argued about again, and so on. It's easy to get lost and hard to escape without a headache.
We borrowed Mark Zuckerberg's quote for the title of this post because we find it quite fitting. Let's see Samepage's take on it.
Notifications - we love them and hate them, right?! We want and need to be notified of conversations happening in our teams and pages. But sometimes, it can be too much of a good thing. So we built the next generation of notification settings.
We're always improving Samepage. For a couple of last weeks, we focused on the performance of our mobile app. That forced us to work on things that are not visible directly in the interface. But it was necessary, and it was worth the effort. We are so thrilled about these changes that we shot a quick video for you.
Teams in Samepage are where most of your work gets done, so it naturally makes sense for us to improve how you're able to work inside of your teams. Among the dozens of small improvements we make every month, two stand out for making life easier for our users.
