Samepage's primary focus has always been documents and the team collaboration around them. And it excels in that area. Tasks and events have been a great complement to manage projects and processes around Samepage documents. Today we are making a big leap forward as tasks and events are now first-class citizens in the product.
It's crucial to be able to quickly navigate through the folder structure to be able to quickly find what you are looking for. We usually remember the right folder not by its name but by the position in the folder view or by the color.
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.
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.
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.
Everyone is talking about Coronavirus these days, especially tech companies. Some seem downright gleeful, which I find disturbing. The risk-on trade on Wall Street these days has Zoom as the ultimate hedge against this pandemic.
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.
We are improving how you ask teammates to join your organization on Samepage. Now you can use an invitation link and share the way that fits your team the best.
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.
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.
Video calling is one of our crucial collaboration features. To be in touch is especially vital for co-located offices. During the last few weeks, we have been working hard improving our video calling solution.
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.
We bring you three improvements to our primary collaboration element: pages. It all starts with customer feedback.
