        We are planning to support mov videos as well to make it easier to upload videos from mobile devices. We are checking the technical impact to display a preview in the timeline right away. This could affect the overall performance of the platform since it takes a lot of bandwidth to stream videos.

        AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Owner, COYO) commented  · 

        @Thomas: In my opinion, re-rendering videos is something that should be done by specialized video platforms. This is a very complex (and CPU consuming) topic. Therefore I would like to avoid doing this on COYO servers.

        @Stephanie: Right now it should be possible to upload MP4 files to a timeline. There will be no preview, though. You will see a link and when clicking on that link you will see the file detail view displaying the video. The support for MOV files will be part of the next major release.

        AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Owner, COYO) commented  · 

        I see. But providing a video upload / streaming solution within COYO is not solving the problem of the bandwidth. If the connection is limited it doesn't really matter were the video is streamed from.

        Additionally, from my point of view COYO should not be a video streaming server. This is a super complex topic that other platforms have already solved and so it would be smarter to use those technologies. Also, the additional bandwidth that would be needed on the server could and probably will have a negative impact on the overall performance of the platform.

        Though, something we are working on right now is a video preview / streaming for mp4 / mov files so that videos from mobile devices (mainly iPhones) can be uploaded and previewed in COYO more easily.

        AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Owner, COYO) commented  · 

        Hey Christoph,

        totally agree. Video is getting more and more important in internal communication (actually it is in all ways of communication). Therefore we are planning on providing a better integration of video platforms for the future. I agree that the main tasks are 1) to offer an easy way to integrate videos (for everyone) and 2) consider the privacy of internal videos.

        That being said and considering the technical limitations (of COYO not being a streaming server) - from my point of view there is only the option of a good and seamless integration of one or more streaming providers.

        For example we are thinking about integrating Microsoft Video / Streams or other services like movingimages, Kaltura etc. Unfortunately I can't really tell you right now when we are going to be able to implement this, but we are aware that this is an important issue.

        AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Owner, COYO) commented  · 

        Hey Christoph,

        problem with that would be that you would need a lot of bandwidth for that feature. The COYO server would act as a video streaming server which could interfere with the overall performance. As a workaround it would be better to add Youtube or Vimeo links to display the video. Would that be an option for you? Can we broaden the support for video streaming services?

          Hey Sarah, what would happen with the invitations of a workspace? Would they become followers of the page directly?

            Hey Josephine,

            yeah, that makes sense. We were planning on making it possible to assign bookmarks to multiple categories. That way one wouldn't need to alter a link in multiple categories if e.g. the URL changes.

            Though, this wouldn't work if different admins could administrate different categories - if they change one bookmark that is assigned to multiple categories, he or she would alter the url for all categories.

            Therefore we were thinking about just giving admins access to all categories and bookmarks.

            AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Owner, COYO) commented  · 

            I got a question that came up lately: Are you actually using the option to assign admins to launchpad categories so that those admins can manage the bookmarks within those categories?

            Wouldn't it be sufficient to give those users permissions to manage bookmarks in general (via admin backend)? We are thinking of simplifying the administration of the launchpad by removing the feature to have specific admins per category. But we wouldn't do this if it were an important use case to you.

            AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Owner, COYO) commented  · 

            Thanks for the feedback!

            @Sarah: there was short downtime since I had to copy the files around. Do you still have problems downloading the files?

            @Ester: Thanks for your feedback - can you specify what you don't like about the new UI? Is it that too much changes in general? Is it the change from a dark to a bright scheme?

            AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Owner, COYO) commented  · 

            We got some updates on the launchpad and would like to present you the current version of the concept. We tried to consider most of your feedback and after multiple iterations we would like to propose the following.

            Launchpad view: https://core.gocoyo.com/web/public-link/a86f9b32-6f1f-48ed-adfb-1f19b340e6a6/download

            The launchpad will bet a completely new look that is brighter and appears much friendlier. Every bookmark gets more space so that titles and descriptions are not getting cropped. Users can still add their own bookmarks (which will be inserted to "My bookmarks") and can mark bookmarks as favorite. Favorite bookmarks are always on top and can be manually sorted by the users. Adding a search for the launchpad items should also help to find the bookmarks quickly even if their is a huge quatity of them. Additionally, there will be a category navigation in the left hand side for a better overview.

            Administration: https://core.gocoyo.com/web/public-link/447d7f4b-69a5-46f6-95e1-7205a4abc505/download

            The administration will mostly stay the same but will get two great improvements. For one, admins will be able to create the bookmarks within the admin area. Secondly, a bookmark can be added to multiple categories. This way the admin does not have to switch forth and back to the launchpad and the administration and can manage the same link for multiple categories (and therefore multiple user groups).

            Create bookmarks: https://core.gocoyo.com/web/public-link/2094f655-f334-4907-a0af-e9ba57aae8f5/download

            To make the launchpad look great in the result it is very important to add icons, titles and descriptions. At the moment, this is very time consuming task and with the update of the launchpad we would like to change this. As soon as a user or the admin provides the URL of the bookmark, the application will try to fetch all available information from the target and prefill the creation form. So, best case scenario will be that you provide the URL and COYO takes of the rest choosing an icon and setting the title and description. If this automatic task fails or you are not pleased with the result, you can still edit the settings and chose another icon / image (including the cropping tool).

            Mobile first: https://core.gocoyo.com/web/public-link/8bfef05f-6201-4d9e-abcd-ba6257efabff/download

            As always this feature will be available on mobile devices as well :)

            Please let us know what you think! We hope that we were able to take all your feedback into consideration and we are excited about this new upcoming feature!

              This feature has been deprioritized in our roadmap.

              Unfortunately, we need to postpone this feature further to speed up the development of our Office365 integration. However, we understand that a lot of users demand this and the topic has a high priority. We have therefore kept the item on our immediate roadmap.

              AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Owner, COYO) commented  · 

              I can absolutely understand your frustration. I am very sorry that we had to postpone this feature several times. We needed to prioritize other features (like the external workspace members) and the feature as such was more complex to implement than we thought. Right now our plan is to implement at least the feature to copy or move apps between pages and workspaces. This way one could prepare content in a private page / workspace and then copy it to a new one.

              At least, I have some good news for the external workspace members. The development of this feature is completed and our quality assurance runs extensive tests at the moment. Our plan is to release this feature in November to our cloud and on premise customers.

              AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Owner, COYO) commented  · 

              Yes, Q3 is still realistic.

              AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Owner, COYO) commented  · 

              The feature is now planned for Q3. We are very sorry for the delay.

              AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Owner, COYO) commented  · 

              Unfortunately not. We started developing this feature but needed to shift our priorities. I'll be able to give you a heads up next week about this topic (and a new time frame).

              AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Owner, COYO) commented  · 

              Hey Winfried, unfortunately not. We stopped adding new features to COYO3 a while ago. This will only be available for COYO4.

                The development as such is completed but we are running some intensive tests right now. The feature stretches along the whole application and needs to be tested very thoroughly. So, depending on the feedback of our QA we are expecting to ship a release with external workspace members real soon.

                AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Owner, COYO) commented  · 

                If you can go without that actual feature for a while, it should be no problem to migrate, from my point of view.

                I know that some customers are actually doing that. They migrate to COYO4 and apply a very restricted role to their former external users (e.g. so that they can only see workspaces). After we implemented the feature itself, it will be possible to "demote" common users to externals.

                AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Owner, COYO) commented  · 

                I am very sorry but I have to announce that we need to postpone that feature again. Development has already started and is ongoing but the feature turned out to be way more complex and difficult than we thought.

                It is now scheduled for Q3.

                AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Owner, COYO) commented  · 

                Although development already started we needed to postpone this feature to Q2 as well :(

                AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Owner, COYO) commented  · 

                Correct, It's still planned for Q1 2018.

                  One addition: I guess that most of the users change their timezone settings which affects the date and time of the event accordingly. This doesn't work for traveling user though.

                  Hey Susanne, thanks for the good idea! Shouldn't be indeed not too hard to add this piece of information.

                  But, yeah. I am wondering the same. Does anyone else running into problems with the timezone?

                      Hey Sarah and Christoph,

                      the search is actually taking this into consideration. If you type in two terms and then a result that matches both those terms will be ranked higher than one with only one of the terms. But there seem to be some problems with that for some specific results or for large amounts of results. We are looking going to look into that soon - for me it looks more like a bug right now, than like a problem with the overall search concept. But I totally agree - there seems to be something wrong.

                      As for the actual search operators: We are planning on implementing a lot of improvements on the search after Q2 and operators are going to be one of them. From my point of view (please correct me if I am wrong) the need for using operators is not that big anymore if the search ranks the results more properly. As I see it, operators are more a power user feature (as Sarah said).

                        If you want to change the text along the whole platform you can follow Christophs instructions. If you want to change the text of each timeline separately this would be a new feature request.

                        Would you like to change the text within the input box (like Christoph stated) or rather set a title for the widget?

                          I am also not a big fan of this. This is not really transparent for the user because he doesn't understand why exactly a post is on top.

                              Hey Christoph,

                              we had a look at blog images in general and our ideas do match most of your suggestions. In general, we also think that it is quite cumbersome to have two different teaser images with two different formats. So our idea would be to reduce this to one format that works for all blog articles – regardless whether rendered in a widget, a list of articles or the article itself.

                              I can present some conceptional screens to you. We are planning on replacing the 2 teaser images to only 1 which works for the widgets, the blog overview and also the blog articles as such.

                              https://core.gocoyo.com/web/public-link/4785187d-5dec-45dd-8565-39e43029801a/download

                              This image will have a fixed ratio of 21:9. For the migration we will support both formats - otherwise old teasers would be stretched or cropped. So, after the roll out of this improvement the old teaser images would still be displayed but it won't be possible to still select two different teaser images but one.

                              Hey Tobias, sorry I don't have a timeline for the new blog teaser images, yet. But I'll keep you posted!

                                Hey Esther, can you tell me more about the use case? Whats the advantage of showing all events as a default?

                                  Hey Esther, if I get this right you would like to set anchors for the whole view - e.g. if several rich text editors are used?

                                    External members won't have any permission to view pages at all. The concept states that externals are there to work on a project (workspace) together with employees of your company. But, pages contain company relevant information which an external should not be able to see.

                                    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Owner, COYO) commented  · 

                                    Hey Christoph, at the moment we don't plan to allow externals to be admins of workspaces. But they could publish and manage content in terms of blog or wiki articles. Would that be sufficient for your use case?

                                      neat idea! Would you rather include this in an external tracking tool or see the numbers within the documents app? Or maybe in the statistics in the administration?

                                        Hey Jörg, sorry - I don't really understand the idea. Would you like to assign permissions and roles to specific pages? Could you please give me some more information about your use case?

                                          Can you tell me more about the use case? The timeline widget is not really meant to display notifications or news - it's a n interactive element.

                                            We are working on a major improvement of the launchpad. We are not planning on adding a widget, though.

                                            But generally: what's wrong about the fullscreen?
