New Features: Copying Tasks, Insight Filters, Pod Progress Bar and File Previews

March 10, 2016

In the last few months we squashed plenty of bugs, re-wrote code, and worked on a lot of improvements in Brightpod. Here are some new features and enhancements you should know about…

Copying Tasks

You can now copy a task from one pod (project) to another.Also, tasks can also be copied to a different task list within the same pod. Brightpod already have a “move” function but “copy” now makes a copy of the task :)


1. Since you can tag your tasks with a “Task Type” and a “Current Status” we have also introduced these as filters in Insights. You can now search for all tasks of type blog posts that are overdue in the last 3 months. Or, you can search for all tasks that are published by someone for a particular time interval.

2. Pod listing on the Pods page can now be sorted by Due date.

Lost Internet Connectivity

We now let you know if you have lost internet connectivity while using Brightpod. Disable your internet connection and give it a try.

Explaining RSS

The RSS link on the activity page now does a better job of explaining what is RSS and how one can subscribe to it.

Pod Progress

We disabled the Pod progress bar last year due to performance issues. It is back now.
