Detailed log of changes to Bricks app.

May 2019 - Version 0.8

Import BCF

BCF is an exchange file used in BIM to export / import issues between applications. You can for example create issues in Solibri model checker, 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.

April 2019 - Version 0.7

Display unread status when a new comment or a new topic is created

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!

You can see quickly if your are up to date.

User information card display on hover of user image

To have more information about a team member contextually we added a popup 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.

When your hover a user picture for 2s you can see his details.

Group list of topics by all properties

It is now possible to group topics by all properties

List of my topics view

New icon to access my topics view

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.

Kanban board redesign

The goal of this redesign was :

  • to have a lighter and more colorful 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

March 2019 - Version 0.6

Limit topic list scroll to view screen

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.

Project creation from project page

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.

The main advantages of table display are :

  • to have many topics on one screen

  • to compare topic properties easily
