Will You Be Our Delta Testing Valentine?
It’s February, and love is in the air! In this month’s Centercode release, we’re bringing you a heart-shaped box of bite-sized new features and improvements. Follow the trail of release note rose petals to learn about each of these exciting new Centercode additions! And, as always, check out the list of bug fixes we've deployed throughout the month.
📈 Improvements 📈
A Return to Form
The first arrow in Cupid’s release note quiver is a slight adjustment to last month’s community project list UI update. By popular demand program groups are returning to the Community Home project list! We always love hearing from you what works and what doesn’t, and you let us know that program grouping was an essential way of managing large project lists. So, without further ado, we present the (new) new Community Home project list!
Quicker Quick Invites
Invite users into your community or projects (and possibly your heart?) faster than ever before with this handy new addition to the menu bar! This button keeps the ability to add users to your project or community front and center (well, slightly to the right) at all times. Additionally, we’ve given the Quick Invite menu a little polish to bring it in line with last month’s big UI update. Now get out there and get inviting!
Searching for Knowledge in all the Right Places
Centercode's search tool is getting a little love. Previously known as the “Knowledge Base,” we’ve given this handy tool a new name (now simply “Search”) and a makeover. Along with the name change, we’ve also updated (and added a more visible button) to the Search Reference Guide, which details precisely how to target the data you’re looking for!
Simpler Simple Lists
Last but not least, a quick update to the look of the Simple List feedback view. The intent of the Simple List is to present users with a succinct, at-a-glance summary of feedback tickets. But this view looked busier than we wanted it to, especially with the color-coded status tags. These tags will remain in the more information heavy feedback view types, such as the dashboard view. We stripped those tags out of Simple Lists(while maintaining the ability to filter the list by status if that is your intended purpose) to keep things readable and easy to navigate!
✏️ Let's Talk About Text: February's Copy Updates ✏️
A Rose by Any Other Display Name
Usernames are taking a new name: display names. As an admin, nothing's changed—you'll still have access to the full names of your members.
What's in a name, you ask? The switch gives you more flexibility to manage your testers' privacy without sacrificing the security of having identifying info on file. The new label makes it clear to your users when completing this field that this may be shown to other participants, which is still something you have control over in your Project Settings.
More (Love) Language Updates
Communication is key to a successful relationship, so we focused on increasing clarity within your platform experience. Page titles and error messages are now more consistent. Blank states are also getting some much-needed love and showing off a little more personality. We hope these updates, while subtle, will win your heart.
