It’s been a productive couple of months for us at Brightpod. We have added a bunch of changes to Brightpod. Some of these are visual and the others are behind the scenes performance enhancements.
We are introducing a WYSIWYG Editor for the Pod (Project) description. You can now make text bold, italics, underline and even add a list and a heading. We will be rolling out the WSIWYG editor to all other sections in the coming weeks.
Customizable Task Types
You asked for it and we delivered. Now, task types are fully customizable from the Settings page (Admins only).
You can add your own task type and even choose an icon for it. Then, you can tag a task with any of your task types. Task types are helpful when you want to categorize a particular task as a “Blog Post”, “Podcast”, “Bug”, “Creative” etc. It helps to have another dimension to how you organize your work.
The task details page and the flow view has been re-designed to be simpler, cleaner and lighter. All action links have been moved to the right side.
Here is what the Flow view looks like with the task status (have added a few more statuses) and task type.
Settings & Account
A single drop down called “Settings & Account” (top right corner of the app) will include your Profile, Settings and Account information. This is the only place you go to customize or make changes to your account.Performance Enhancements
That’s it for now. Stay tuned for many more updates in the coming months. We are working on a Harvest integration, rolling out the WYSIWYG editor to other sections and working on the mobile version of Brightpod.
The reason we decided to move our blog from a subdomain on Medium to a subfolder on Webflow. Here's a detailed narration of the entire process along with a useful checklist in case you are planning a similar move.
