    Yes, good news. We are going to change this in one of the next versions.

    Hey Sabrina, good point. It was designed that way since you are starting a new search. But if you are altering your current search it is quite annoying to lose your search filters. Along with https://community.coyoapp.com/forums/306010/suggestions/34622206 we are having a look into this topic in the near future.

    Hey Kerstin & Thomas, I see the point. This was done to have shares consistent. When sharing a blog article you usually want to see the comments on the article also under the share (since it reflects a discussion about it's content). For pages and workspaces, though, it does not make so much sense. We will have a look into this.

    Hey Nils, should work now :)

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Hey Tobias, are you going to use O365? If so you will be able to use this feature in Q4. You can follow the progress on our roadmap: https://community.coyoapp.com/internal-roadmap Just check for the "O365 Calendar" feature. If you have to rely on the webcal feature though (e.g. for Exchange on premise), I can't give you a timeline, yet.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Ok, fair enough. Unfortunately I don't think that our planned integration will work for Outlook on premise. But we might have another look into webcal to support a broadly used interface.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Hi Louis, we are planning to implement a sync between events in COYO and Outlook (for O365). Every time a user clicks to attend an event in COYO the event is going to be written into that users Outlook calendar. Additionally all changes to the event in COYO would be synched to Outlook as well.

    Would that help your use case or do you rely on webcal?

    Hey Thomas, they are sorted alphabetically but grouped by admin and members. From our point of view it makes sense to list the admins first. What do you think?

    Sorry, Jörg. It is quite hard to answer all suggestions and I probably missed yours 5 months ago. We'll try to improve this.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Hey Jörg and Johannes,

    thanks for your feedback and good points. We will take that into consideration once we have another look at the "New colleagues" widget. There are other ideas to improve the widget like https://community.coyoapp.com/forums/306010/suggestions/33844813

    We will have a look into it (since we are going to re-do all widgets) but I don't think that will happen in the near future - more likely mid term.

    One more thing about this: We are working on this for the O365 / G Suite integrations for admins to hide / deactivate the file library for users. So, they are encouraged to use other file storages instead like Google Drive or SharePoint.

    So, if you deactivate "My files" in the main dropdown, it will also hide the option to "Upload from file library" in the timeline.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Hey Christoph, you are talking about "My files" in the top right dropdown, right? If so, we are working on this right now.

    Hey Angie,

    unfortunately there is no estimation, yet. This could be a quite sensitive topic regarding data privacy - so we wouldn't be able to track who has actually just viewed a blog article. We could track and display the count of viewers, though.

    Additionally, it could be possible to get an optional confirmation from the user (e.g. "I have read this article" or "Mark this article as read"). Would this be sufficient for you?

    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.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Thanks for all your input. We know about the urgency of this idea but we still have a lot other things on our plate right now.

    This feature however is still on our list and won't be forgotten. We will keep you posted!

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Thanks for all your feedback! As Christoph mentioned there are many things in our pipeline right now but we will also take this one into consideration and keep you posted.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Would you rather use the COYO tasks instead of Wunderlist if there would be such an overview of all your tasks, then?

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Hey Christoph, yeah - I know. I am also quite unhappy about this. The thing is that many users don't really use the task app since they have an alternative application in use like Todo, Wunderlist etc. Therefore the priority in enhancing COYOs task app is quite low right now.

    But, this is also where it gets quite paradox because the usage of the app could be low - just because a vital feature (like "My Tasks") is missing. I agree that this could absolutely raise the usage of the app itself.

    Anyways, since a lot of people voted for this idea and i absolutely see the potential I'll keep an eye on it and see what we can do here.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    It's not the problem that it would be hard to implement. It's more the lack of resources / priority at the moment.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    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.

    Hey Steffen, I am sorry - nothing new about this topic. Still planned but no timeline.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Hey Christoph, I know it would be a really neat feature. Unfortunately I can't really tell when we will be able to release it. All I can say is that it's planned for 2018 and I hope it comes rather earlier than later.

    Hi there,

    sorry to tell you but after a deeper look into this we found out that a simple referrer change is not a feasible solution for us. So unfortunately no quick fix in sight.
    Due to a bunch of topics with higher priority, we need to postpone this one.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Our development will have a look into it. If it is just a small thing we will fix this right away :)

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Hey Max, we will have a look into it. We need to check how complex or easy this would be.

    First of all, thank you very much for your input. If I get this correctly restoring deleted files / having a trash bin for files and documents would be the most important feature.

    I can't give you a timing right now - as you can see on our roadmap we are working on several O365 integrations features right now. But, the trash bin for documents will be a good candidate as a follow up.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    We know about the importance of this topic and we are having a look into this right now. We want to figure out how we can start kicking off this topic by making some smaller steps of progress. So, we would like to find out what the most important content type would be to recover from a trash bin.

    Would be great if you could leave a comment here what you think should have the highest priority.

    Unfortunately, this has no priority for us right now. As great as it would be to have a kanban style project management tool within COYO this would be quite complex to achieve, it would probably not have the comfort that other tools (e.g. Trello) would have and this would not align properly with our current strategy.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Hey Marcel and Markus, yes - we are rethinking the concept of event invitation right now. At the moment the visibility of an event is reflected by the page, workspace or person it is assigned to. Additionally an admin can invite colleagues completely independently from the visibility. This means I could create an event for private workspace OR create a public event but invite only 3 people - both example don't really make sense.

    We are still figuring out how we want to change the concept exactly but making it easier to invite all workspace members to an event will be part of it.

    I'll keep you posted as soon as we have more information about the concept will change.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    No news, yet. It is still on our roadmap with priority but I don't have a timeline right now.

    Hey Laura, yeah that's one of the ideas to make the creation of bookmarks in the launchpad easier and the results much nicer to look at.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Hey Sina, unfortunately there are no news abut this topic. We are finishing up some other topics, right now. As you can see on our roadmap this topic is still planned: https://community.coyoapp.com/internal-roadmap

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Hey Nik, concept is done and I am just waiting for development resources to become available to gest started on this topic.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    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.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    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 Manager, 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 Manager, 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 Manager, 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!
