  • The ‘Inline code’ style is now the the same colour as regular text.

  • We’ve tweaked the formatting of the card activity feed to be more readable when multiple assignees are added or removed.

Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where you could not view the ‘Space details’ sidebar for any spaces after deleting a space.

  • Attempting to view a card attachment before its finished uploading no longer breaks the UI.

  • On mobile, the login screen will now display the numeric keyboard when using the ‘log in with email code’ option.

  • The Trello importer now converts markdown in card descriptions to rich text.

  • The card title in the Inbox header is now truncated instead of line wrapping on smaller screens.

  • Attempting to drag a card into an empty space now shows the correct empty state for the space.

Feb 23, 2024

Features

  • Page templates (beta) – you can now create reusable templates for pages. Go to Settings > Templates > Pages to create your first template. Currently, the only way to apply a template is when creating a page through the ‘New page’ button in the sidebar. We plan to add more ways very soon.

Improvements

  • Real time sidebar updates – your sidebar will now update automatically when somebody deletes a Space (previously you would need to refresh).

  • When choosing a template to apply, if the dropdown of templates is empty, we now display a link to the Settings page where you can create one.

  • Board stats explanations – hidden in the info sidebar of a board we have some simple stats showing you how cards are progressing. We now show tooltips to help you interpret these numbers.

  • We’ve added some extra text to explain how email notifications work.

  • We’ve tightened up the padding between card descriptions and card titles.

Fixes

  • On mobile, we’ve removed the large gap from the top of Settings pages.

  • We fixed a bug where the hover state for a button in the header would persist when opening a different menu in the app.

  • We’ve removed the ‘People with access’ section from the ‘Info’ sidebar of a page. Access to a page is defined by the space the page is located in and nothing else.


Feb 16, 2024

Improvements

  • Text alignment options in pages – you can now left, centre, or right align text in pages.

  • In the sidebar and search results, boards will now display the appropriate icon for each layout you’ve chosen for them (board, list, or timeline).

  • In the Inbox, when viewing a notification about a card, we now show the card title in the header so that you can see which card you are viewing even when scrolled to a comment.

  • The ‘Open board’ button in the homepage of a space has been moved to left to make it slightly easier to click on.

Fixes

  • When linking to a comment thread in a page, the thread will now scroll to the correct position of the comment.

  • Cards that are moved into a board that ‘group-by’ is enabled for will now show up in their correct grouping.

  • Fixed an issue where card titles were hidden in the timeline layout when at its default width.

  • Navigating to a favourited board whilst using timeline layout no longer causes the new and old board to alternate whilst it loads.

  • The board layout option for ‘Hide empty groups’ is now only applied to the current board you are viewing, not all boards.

  • We’ve removed the inaccurate version history feature from pages.

  • Fixed some hover states in boards where list names and icons would look interactive when ‘group-by’ is applied.

  • Fix a bug where opening the 3 dot menu in the header of space would break if you opened the same menu from within the sidebar at the same time.


Feb 9, 2024

Improvements

  • Now anybody can resolve a comment thread. Previously only the person who created the thread could do this. Resolving a thread will notify its participants.

  • If you attempt to create a child card without first giving it a title, we’ll display a message prompting you to add one.

  • We display a warning banner to users who have a resource open from a space that has been deleted.

Fixes

  • On mobile, the new board creation screen is now scrollable.

  • Fixed a bug with real time collaboration where the card description would not always save every character you were typing.

  • The ‘Hide empty groups’ option now works when grouping by Priority.

  • Fixed a caching issue which mean that cards from other boards could appear when grouping by Assignee.

  • Fixed a caching issue with boards that meant group-by was not working correctly in the desktop app.

  • Linking to a comment that is hidden in a collapsed thread will now automatically expand the thread.

  • Fixed some misaligned menus in the importer flow.

  • Fixed a typo in the subject line of email digests when there is only one notification.


Feb 2, 2024

Features

  • Email digests – receive a daily email summary of unread notifications. You can choose what time they’re sent, and what notifications to include from Settings > Account > Notifications. Digests are only sent once a day and exclude weekends.

  • Board layouts – when creating a board, you can now choose a default layout (Board, List, or Timeline). Users can still change the layout at any time, but they’ll see the ‘default’ if they haven’t set their own preference. You can update the default layout for an existing board by going to its ‘Board Settings’.

  • Sort cards in ‘My work’ – use the ‘Layout’ dropdown to change the sort order of cards in the ‘My work’ view.

Improvements

  • Space members settings page – the settings page for each space has been updated to show a list of the all the members currently in that space.

  • Clicking on the group of avatars in the header of a space now pops open an information panel that displays a list of all the members in the space.

  • We’ve tweaked the names of the ‘Sort-by’ options in the ‘Layout’ menu to make it clearer which direction the sort order will be applied in.

  • We’ve simplified and tweaked the design of our sign up flow.

  • We’ve added tooltips that appear when hovering over a status icon that will display the name of the status.

Fixes

  • When editing a view, clicking the ‘reset to default order’ button in the layout menu no longer breaks the view.

  • When editing a view, clicking on the same sort order twice in a row no longer closes the edit mode.

  • On mobile, the Inbox now consistently opens card notifications with the card sidebar collapsed.

  • Removing a member from a space no longer causes its order in the sidebar to reset.

  • If the space icon picker is open, dragging a space up and down the sidebar will now close it.

  • The ‘layout’ button in a View is now clickable when using the desktop app.

  • The first space ever created in a workspace was missing the option to ‘Leave space’ it in the 3 dot menu in the header.

  • The icon picker pop up was not being automatically hidden when other pops-upin the app were opened.

  • Fixed missing text in notifications about resources being moved to a private space.


Jan 26, 2024

Features

  • Sort-by in Views – use the new ‘layout’ dropdown in Views to change the sort order of Cards.

Improvements

  • All spaces are now treated as equal – we’ve simplified Space management by removing the concept of a ‘default space’. This gives you more control over which spaces you want to join and invite people to. Assuming you have the necessary permissions, any space can now be made ‘open’ or ‘private’, joined or left, or completely deleted at any time.

  • ‘Resolved’ comment notifications – you’ll now receive a notification when a comment thread you participated is ‘marked as resolved’.

  • Changed the invite team member icon to better distinguish between an email invite to your workspace, versus adding an existing team member to a new Space.

  • Added a button to select a card template when creating a card inline in a board.

Fixes

  • The option to delete a space will only be shown to users that have the necessary permissions to perform that action. This is a workspace owner, admin, or the original creator of the space.

  • If you had the same filter applied in two different boards, navigating between the boards would make the filter UI disappear.

  • Added some padding between the buttons in the quick card modal and the bottom of the card description input field.

  • When selecting text inside a comment box, if your cursor finishes the selection outside of the comment box, we will no longer interpret that as trying to close the comment.
