Change to web app ?

  • updated
  • Under review

I refreshed my browser and now I get what looks like a radically new layout  (roles on the left side, schedule and boards toggle to the right)...?  Is this configurable? Can we change it back - if at least temporarily?  I really depend on this app but the changes are jarring and disruptive.  A heads up would be nice ....

App:
Web app

Caught me by surprise too. I knew a change was coming, but no notice of the date was not ideal. 
I have also lost all my boards except the default "Parking Lot".....that is just not ok

  1. We have been asking for feedback on our facebook group. I guess we should do more "peek" posts.
  2. You probably haven't lost your boards. You can still change the current board by clicking on the board name. (First you need to switch to the Boards view (dark blue background bar)

Below is a copy of the facebook feedback I logged on this proposed layout. It also includes queries as a result of recent updates. Not sure if Weekplan read it...but there was certainly no response. 

"Probably" not loosing my boards is not very reassuring. I know how to change boards....they are simply gone.

I am sorry I didn't see this feedback :(

Do you remember the name of the boards you are missing? I will check what is happening.

Also, another question: you do have quite a few HITs planned for the week. Do you generally manage to complete them all or 90% of them per week?

I found 4 boards that were marked as deleted.

Luckily I was only experimenting with the alternative boards, so didn't have anything critical on them. Can't remember the name of the boards at this stage. Lets just let them go. 

I am still getting into the grove with HITs and have not managed to get even half done in a week.

  1. I believe most people overcommit when it comes to HITs, limiting how many are shown on the screen is also to discourage too many commitments. Reduce the list of HITs you have, but try to get to 90-100% every time.
  2. You should see your boards now.

I found the new layout a good improvement.

It fits well into my way of working and planning:

  1. collect tasks/project  into the boards (with a larger dedicated main screen)
  2. prioritization and week plan, transferring choosed activities into HIT (from the same Boards screen)
  3. scheduling: putting HIT in the calendar (from the second Schedule dedicated screen)
  4. Managing activieties during working time (in the same Schedule screen)

What can be still improved?

The way to jump between boards that actually can be done only navigating with mouse in the drop-list. There's a lot of space available in the boards title area where with two simple one-click buttons could be faster and easier to jump to the previous/next board (and you'll save one click and the scroll along the boards list...) I need to review and update my boards often so that moving around them must be, from my point of view, very efficient.


Another key point is to update the prioritization quadrant that, as it is now, is useless for me. Indeed i need to check and prioritize a whole board and not the single lists contained into each board; again in that way it will be faster and more efficient.
