Collaboration improvements

24 May 2020 • Alex Harley

Collaboration.v1 is here!

Just deployed! We’ve revamped our collaboration tooling in Portabella with @mentions, assignments, filtering and notifications. If we’re being honest a kanban/issue tracker is pretty hard to use without the above features, so we’re glad they’re finally here.

Here’s a screenshot for comparison of the old card view screen:

And the new one:

As you can see everything is much cleaner and it’s going to be a lot easier to create cards that make sense.

It’d be pointless if people were tagging you in cards left and right without you being notified of that, so we’ve added a notification dropdown to the navigation bar. We’ll soon add a settings page where you can choose to get these delivered to you via email (this would be opt in of course).

Finally we’ve added a simple way to filter cards by assignee on a board.

Filter

That’s all there is for today, next up on our roadmap is any of the following:

  • more filtering/searching capabilities
  • realtime collaboration
  • notification settings (email integration as mentioned above)
  • markdown support in cards
  • payments.

If you have any preferences feel free to email us at [email protected] and we’ll be sure to prioritise your feature request.
