To come this month... !
Duplicate project as a template
Public projects: projects can now be set to public or be kept as private (default value). When project are public anyone with the project link can access in readonly mode (as a guest). Setting a project as public is a great way to share a project to others without inviting them as members. Some of the best public projects will be included in a library of open source projects templates available from your projects list.
Team are no more accessible by admin by default: Change invitation by default in team for admin. All users need to be invited, not only the members. So the administrators don't have extra privileges and only the user that need to access to a given team conversation can view it.
File tab team handling: File tabs now handle teams. So only files of your team are listed. You can then share privately inside your team. If you want to share to all project members. General team is perfect for that.

Export topics as a pdf report
To send a state of project topics for a meeting or by email, it is convenient to create some pdf reports. It is now possible, you only have to select the topics you want to export or all topics of a project. Currently, we have one generic report template but more reports types will come later. Stay tuned.
Edit topics directly from topic list or Kanban
It is now possible to edit a topic directly from topic list or Kanban to save type and don't lose the context of the list.
Open topic in side view panel in all displays : list, table and Kanban
To be able to quickly see the content of a topic, we generalized the side view that display the topic in context with the list of topics. Previously it was available only on topic list. Now it is available from all displays : topic list, Kanban board or table of topics.
Reorder tasks to better hierarchize what needs to be done
It is now possible to reorder topic tasks to better hierarchize the succession of tasks to be done to complete a topic.
Add more services in uploader + image editing
Bricks uploader support now the most important file sharing service like google drive, Dropbox, box or one Drive as well as device camera and images platforms like google photos and Instagram. It is also possible to edit an image before upload it in Bricks to for example crop it, improve its luminosity or put it in black and white.
Be able to set workflow state in topic page
Previously it was possible to set workflow state of a topic (to do, doing, done by default) only from Kanban. Now it is possible to do it just by settings a fields in topic page.

All to filter topics as in Kanban by workflow state
Fix drag and dropping of Kanban card when scrolling big list
When the list of cards was big and you scroll down on a column. Drag and dropping to another column was restoring the scroll to initial scroll, which was quite confusing. Now the display of Kanban don't change any more after the drag and drop.

Make it possible to perform quick edits to the uploaded image like cropping, make it lighter, or in black and white
The 3 types of pages : user, organization and project have now a similar header that recall in which page we are. The header and the main menu are always visible even if we scroll down the page. More info.
It's now possible to set topic properties (stage, work package, estimation....) directly when creating a topic. So you don't need to go to topic page to do it. More info.
Previously it was only possible to assign a topic to a team member. Now it is possible to assign each task to a different member. This way you can define more precisely who do what and guaranty things are done. More info.
Take a screenshot of your screen, then paste it in topic comment or description. It will be uploaded as other images. A time saver for example to paste an annotated screenshot of the BIM model.
All menus like user menus or contextual menus are now easily clickable and appear correctly even on mobile.
We improved the style of topic properties form and topic search filters. Indeed, it was previously difficult to unselect a property. Also, the visual style is now much lighter. Also, we added a convenient way to edit parameters or project members directly from the select list.
BCF is an exchange file used in BIM to export / import issues between applications. You can for example create issues in Solibri model checker or Tekla BIMsight, export a BCF file containing issues information along with screenshots... and imports them in Bricks. You can assign default properties and create the imported topics in the team you want.
To be able to identify there are new unread comments or topics in a project, topic card summary displays with bold case when unread and normal case when all status are read. If you use Gmail, it is the same format, so you should be used to that!
To have more information about a team member contextually we added a pop-up that show on hover on the member profile image. Then you can quickly have information like his full name, his user name, or phone number.
In order to see quickly all my tasks spread in different projects, we created a new page that is accessible thanks to a visible icon on top right of the screen. In this display we separated in 2 categories of topics : the topics assigned to you by others, or the topics you created.
A project button on each topic line link with the specific project and comment thread. You can then use my topics view as a way to choose on which project you are going to work and recall you due tasks.
The goal of this redesign was :
to have a lighter and more colourful display similar to the other pages like topics
to show contextual information in the topic header, like the type of kanban
To make it easier to add topic in context by separating create topic button
To propose a similar experience you are probably used to using email clients like Gmail, we limited the scroll of topic list to the height of the screen. This way you can always see topic details side by side with the list of topics and more rapidly scan your recent topics.
As some of our users asks us, we placed a convenient create project button directly from the projects page. As a project is always associated to an organization, we thus allow the user to select one of his organization in which he wants to create the project.
To make clearer what is urgent and what is not, we used a gradient of colours from yellow to red.
It is now possible to choose a comment that will be considered as the topic response. A way to formalize what is the decision about a specific topic.
Table view page add a new way to view and edit your topics. You probably will be already familiar with it as it is similar to what you can do in Excel or Google spreadsheet.
The main advantages of table display are :
to have many topics on one screen
to compare topic properties easily
to edit multiple topics quickly
It is now possible to filter kanban by sprint. So you can see only the topics that belongs to the current sprint. You can then see what is missing to match your goal.
Pages have now custom titles that permit to share them with more context on social network, when you save them as a bookmark or as a link to your mobile phone home screen.
