Hey Christoph, so basically something the latest blog article is already doing but with more options? E.g. filtering by categories / source, searching, etc?
I like it, too :)
There are some ideas that go into the same direction. E.g. replacing the current blog article teaser image: https://community.coyoapp.com/forums/306010/suggestions/32107915
And I agree, also the teaser widget is up for some new design / new features. Especially the format of the teaser images should be easier to determine - e.g. an editor should have the information at hand which aspect ratios and sizes would work best.
I hope, we will be able to look into this in the near future. But in general this idea is probably the result of many smaller improvements on our existing widgets.
Hey Nicole, thanks for your answer and your feedback. Showing a message like "This comment has been deleted" would ensure that every user knows that there was an item that others might have answered to or referred to. Just deleting or hiding a comment might create a gap in the conversation.
I like the idea to just hide comments (in terms of a soft deletion), though. It makes revision much easier. We'll keep that in mind and think about it.
btw: discussing this topic in the user community has the advantage that other people could join in. If we would discuss this directly others would miss out ;)
Hey Nicole, we are thinking about removing the option for normal users to delete any comments under their post. This would only be possible for the author of the comment themselves or moderators. In addition we would like to make it possible to report comments specifically and not deleting the comment as such but replacing it with "This comment has been deleted" or something similar. What do you think?
@Jörg: Sorry, I didn't see your comment here. You are right, we changed this in version 11 which is already available on the cloud and will be shortly for on premise.
Hey, sorry for the very late response on this. We are planning to do some changes on deleting comments.
We are thinking about removing the option for normal users to delete any comments under their post. This would only be possible for the author of the comment themselves, admins of the page / workspace or moderators.
In addition we would like to make it possible to report comments specifically and not deleting the comment as such but replacing it with “This comment has been deleted” or something similar.
Since the admin of the page / workspace is responsible for moderating the content within their page / workspace we won't remove the permission to delete comments, though.
What do you think?
We are currently working on synchronizing events from COYO into Outlook. For your second idea there is already an open suggestion in our community: https://community.coyoapp.com/forums/306010/suggestions/35723755
Agreed. This would be a benefit for the product and adds value to the task apps and the general handling of tasks. I added it to our roadmap but I can’t come up with a timing, yet.
Hey Christoph, this is still a very great idea but unfortunately we don't have any free resources right now to make this happen. So, there is no timeline for this feature right now.
As Sven already stated we started with creating concept and visuals. However, development of this improvement has not started yet but is still planned.
Note: If you don't want to wait for the version 14 to be released for the on premise version: We also patched the optimized columns for the file library into version 10.0.26.
With the upcoming cloud release (15.x.) and also the on premise release (14.x) we will at least display links as buttons which already saves a lot of space.
But we will keep on working a solution to adjust the columns of a list and forms app furthermore.
Yes, that is a great quick win for the problem with the columns. We'll try to squeeze this in as an improvement.
Yes, I have some good news. At least for the documents app we were now able to resolve this problem. A fix will be available for version 13.0.3 which will be released to the cloud in the next 2 weeks.
We are still working on a solution for the list and form app, though.
Yes, it is :)
Hey Noah, does the external workspace member feature solve your problem? You can invite users via their email addresses to certain workspaces in COYO to collaborate. The users have to sign up and login to COYO after receiving an invitation email. See https://www.coyoapp.com/en/blog/external-workspace-member for more information
Development of this feature started.
This will most likely finish in Q4 instead of Q3.
Hey Nik, concept is done and I am just waiting for development resources to become available to gest started on this topic.
I have got some bad news. Unfortunately we need to postpone this feature by 1 quarter. Our current estimations show that we won’t be able to deliver this feature in time. This is caused by a delay in providing releases from last quarter which was the result of unexpected complexity in the development and deployment process.
I am very sorry for everyone who is waiting for this feature.
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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).
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).
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!AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Owner, COYO) shared this idea ·
Hey Marcus, so in detail the email sender should be also the sender of the email (instead of the system email address)?
Let's see whether other customers would need this feature, too.
Yeah, I heard this idea from other customers as well but unfortunately there are other tasks with a higher priority right now. But let's see whether other customers like to see this getting implemented as well.
To make this more specific: the title and the url would need to be provided in different language, right? The images might be the same in every language?
Nice idea. This could also be quite helpful for blog and wiki articles.
Hey Anne, thanks for your suggestion. That's not possible right now but I'll leave this suggestion open so other interested customers can vote for it.
Can you tell me a bit more about the use case? What should happen with archived form entries? Is it simply a graphical thing?
we are upgrading the emoji picker to feature more emojis and also show a list of lately used emojis. Would that be sufficient for your case?
Hey Josephine, I know this has been the case in COYO 3 but whats the actual use case for this? In my opinion people are used to insert emojis directly by now instead of using characters. And people who choose to use the character version are mostly annoyed if those get "translated" automatically?!
I am personally not a big fan of comments of comments. But what about a feature to answer to comments (like in WhatsApp) or easy quoting comments?
In COYO3 we experienced that hardly anyone really understood the "Top posts" filter and it does not really help with the use case of coming back from holidays.
I like the idea having filters on the timeline, though. Let's see whether other customers are voting for this idea as well.
Good idea. I added this to our internal roadmap.
@sarah: Thanks for your ideas. With the next cloud and enterprise release we will replace links with a button again. So, here we will provide an improvement. Sharing of list items with a preview picture could be quite difficult since there might be 0, 1 or multiple images in on entry - but I still think the idea is quite interesting. We'll take this (together with preview pictures in the list entry) into consideration.
@mark: Thanks for your reply. I'll put your suggestion on our internal roadmap.
I guess you are using the blog app instead of the list app for this since it looks nicer, correct? I am just asking because I know that other customers are rather using a timeline or list app for providing a marketplace.
But regarding your suggestion: would it be sufficient for your use case to add a setting to the blog app that allows users to only edit / delete their own blog articles? Or would you actually need a dedicated app for this?
Deleting images attached to a blog article is (by concept) not possible right now. Because admins could use those images at any other place as well and this would break those links.
That would add quite some complexity to the configuration of the form app. But generally I'd agree that it is waste of space to put 3 checkboxes in columns on their own.
But we'd rather find a solution to improve the widths of the columns to solve this. Would that also be sufficient for your use case?
It would fit into the product and would be a nice feature. Unfortunately, I can't give you a timeline on this because there are many other features with a higher priority right now.
Can you provide a use case? What would this be helpful for?
