    Sorry, there are no updates on this issue, yet. We know about the importance of this issue but we are quite busy with our O365 integration right now. As soon as, we have some free resources available, we will have a look into this.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    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.

    Sorry, no updates for this issue. We can imagine becoming a part of the product at some point but it has no priority right now.

    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.

    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.

    Thanks for your suggestion? What is it in from your point of view that makes a page more flexible than a homepage?

    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!

    You only need multiple themes if you want different users to see different themes. E.g. if you have different brands for different business units etc. In you case you can simply edit the default theme and apply all your changes there directly. E.g. edit the default theme and paste your custom css changes there.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Hey Nik, why don't you change the default theme to be your corporate theme? You wouldn't need additional themes for this, I guess.

    Great! I will merge this idea with an already existing one for events then.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Hey Vanessa, wouldn't it be a better idea to improve the events then? E.g. making it possible to create global events with a limited seating where everyone could set their status (without being invited)?

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    No, problem!

    Yes, there is a way to add events directly to your calendar. With version 14 (which is the latest cloud version) we introduced an ICS download which you can directly connect with your calendar application on your computer (or mobile device). There is a brief explanation in this blog article: https://www.coyoapp.com/blog/externe-workspace-mitglieder

    We are also working on a direct integration with Outlook in O365 and Google Calendar.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Hey Philip, you mean that users don't have to say whether they attend or not? Could be useful for public events, yes. I'll keep it in mind but it won't have the highest priority here.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Nothing secure - but the plan is to improve a few flaws in the general concept like:
    - making it easier to create public / private events
    - invite all members of a workspace / subscribers of a page
    - edit the admins afterwards and do not display them as hosts

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    We are planning to do some general improvements for the events - this will be one of them. Unfortunately, we don't have a timeline, yet.

    We added some smaller improvement for this by replacing links with buttons and making the columns more adaptable to their content. This is still no overall solution but since this is one of the most voted topics we will keep on working on this.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    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.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    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.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Yes, that is a great quick win for the problem with the columns. We'll try to squeeze this in as an improvement.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    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.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Yes, it is :)

    Hey Kira,

    yes, that helped a lot. From my experience it is quite unusual that one deactivates comments in general but maybe some other customers could comment and vote here whether this would be an interesting feature for them as well.

    My main concern is that the configuration could get quite complex when you are able to activate / deactivate comments on 4 different levels:
    - You can deactivate them in general via permissions (for certain roles or everyone)
    - You could then activate them on a per page, per workspace level
    - You can activate / deactivate them on a per app level
    - You can activate / deactivate them on a per timeline post level

    It could get quite hard to get an idea for the user (and even the admin) why exactly commenting is possible or not for some content.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Hey Kira, thanks for your suggestion. Can you say a bit more about the use case you would like to solve with this? What's the problem you want to solve?

    Hey Lazlo, Sorry, I don't have an update so far. I also have to say that we are not following up on this with a high priority right now.

    AdminSven Hoffmann (Product Manager, COYO) commented  · 

    Hey Lazlo, selected user appear in the order you picked them initially - but yes - that's not very convenient.

    Please do not link to service tickets here since other user won't be able to read them. Besides, the ticket you linked describes a completely different topic.

    I removed the number of the ticket.

    Hi Laura,

    we actually do support different time zones. Users can choose their time zone in their account settings. They will see the event dates in their local time afterwards. Or is there anything else that you are missing?

    Hey Christoph, so basically something the latest blog article is already doing but with more options? E.g. filtering by categories / source, searching, etc?
