  8. Version 3.22 is LIVE - Improved UI, Instant Collaboration, Files as 1st Comment, Workflows and more! 🚀

    New Feature


    Group 1309_720

    We have an absolutely massive update for you with version 3.22.

    We've been working hard since the beginning of this year to elevate the experience of the platform, and with the new Chrome extension and UI updates, we definitely have done!


    Here's the full list of what's new in Atarim:




    • New Chrome Extension Update - With our new Chrome extension, 1 click will instantly load our interface on the current website you are viewing. This can be done on any website, app, platform, blog, ecommerce store, WordPress back-end...ANYWHERE you want, just by clicking one button. Also everything done in the Chrome Extension, is replicated on collaboration inside Atarim, meaning that your clients don't need to install the extension for you to collaborate with them. You can find our new Chrome Extension here.  


    • Collaborating On Logged-In Experiences - With the new version of the Chrome Extension, you can now leave tasks inside apps and websites where logins are required.   


    • New Nav - The nav has been overhauled, with the ability to extend and retract it whenever you'd like. We've added some animations to icons and made some nav items clearer with more defined names.


    • Collaboration UI - Inside all experiences of collaboration, we've updated the all parts of the UI. This includes the bottom bar, sidebar, pop-over, and much more. We've also made the bars floating, so when looking at your project it feels less constricted.


    • Bulk Uploads On Tasks - You now have the ability to upload more than one file on a task, and this includes all file types. Great for when you need to keep a bunch of files in one place on a project for quick access later on.


    • Drag & Drop Files On Pop-Over - We've also added the ability to drag and drop files from your device straight onto the pop-over, making it super easy and quick to upload files onto tasks.


    • File Uploads As First Comment - Previously, when you wanted to upload a file, you needed to create a comment first. Now, with every file upload, you have the option to add a comment with it, meaning you can also do it as the first comment too!


    • Pages - Inside the sidebar, you have the option to add the current page you're on (we also add pages automatically when you add your first task on a page). This makes it super easy to see how tasks are distributed across your project.


    • Workflows - Previously, workflows were on a modal inside the inbox screen. We've moved this to it's own page to give it the space it deserves. This allows you to setup automations, empowering you to have custom workflows to your favourite apps with our integrations!


    • Search - On the top of the sidebar inside collaboration, you can now search for tasks based on the task title and comments, making it easier for you to find what you're looking for.


    • Filters - You can now filter the sidebar task list to fit your workflow, by choosing to see all tasks across the website, only tasks assigned to you and more.





    • Projects Screen Design - We've updated the look and feel of the projects screen to make it more streamlined, highlighting the main functionality of the page, making it easier for you to do what you need to do!


    • Inbox Screen Design - We've optimized the inbox screen to make it more focused on the work you need to get done. Making the task feed wider, screenshot more visible and minimizing sections by default.


    • Notifications On Tasks - Inside the pop-over when creating tasks, the users tab will now show you who will be notified and who will not be notified, making it really clear who will get a notification about the task. We've also added this as a tooltip on hover for the send button.


    • Time Entry Pop-out - Previously, time entries were only visible on the inbox and boards with a small modal in the bottom left of your screen. This is now displayed inside the nav when you hover over the time entries label, making it easy for you to pause a log timers where ever you are in side the app.



  9. Version 3.21 is LIVE - Small Bug Fixes & Optimizations


    Our latest update is live, bringing with it targeted improvements and bug squashes. The result? A cleaner, quicker platform that gets you where you need to go without the wait.


    Here's the full list:


    Optimizations On The Atarim Dashboard


    • Task lists - We've optimized the way we are pulling tasks into the inbox and boards, speeding it up significantly. Previously we were pulling way too much information in the background, now we are pulling exactly what is needed!


    • Searching - We've changed the way searching works on both the projects screen and inbox, making it way faster. Previously it would take around 4-5 seconds (sometimes longer) when searching for what you need, now it takes 1 second max, even if you have 1000's of projects on your account.


    Bug Fixes On The Atarim Dashboard


    • Activity log - If there was a bunch activity in the log on the dashboard screen, it would cause it to timeout and not load, this is now fixed.


    • Annotated images - In some cases, annotated images would have the same name, which was causing issues for it to load. This is now fixed, and annotated images now have unique names when generated.




  10. Version 3.20 is LIVE⚡- Bug Fixes & Optimizations


    We've got a bunch of fixes for you in our latest release, nothing super fancy but we are continuing to kill as many bugs and optimize more and more inside the Atarim app.

    Here's the full list:


    New On The Atarim Dashboard


    • Inviting users via a link: We have added an easier way for you to invite your team members to the dashboard with a simple link instead of inviting them via email.


    • Project stages in notifications: We've added notifications inside the nav bar for project stages inside the dashboard. When a project stage is created, completed or if a deadline is missed and it's not completed, you'll see a notification inside your notification bar. This will only be shown to you if it's on a project that you are assigned to.


    • Invite screen design: We've done an overhaul of the design on the invite screen as it was SUPER out of date!


    Bug Fixes On The Atarim Dashboard


    • Graphics task count: There was an issue where the task counter on the sidebar inside graphics was not being updated when tasks were being created, this is now fixed.


    • View task link in emails: In the notification emails for tasks created on graphics, the view task link was not being generated correctly. This is now fixed, and will take you to the task inside the inbox on the Atarim Dashboard.


    • Adding to tasks by default: The setting for adding team members to tasks by default inside their accounts was not working correctly, this is now fixed. Users will be assigned to tasks automatically on projects they are assigned to if this setting is turned on.


    • Password validation: Password validation when creating it was missing from some of the signup screens and modals, this is now fixed.


    • Task status update message incorrect: There was an issue with the status notification for when the status is updated inside the comment box of a task, this is now fixed.


    • Wizard showing coming from /pricing: When users were coming from the /pricing page as a new user, they were seeing the start wizard behind our payment modal, this is now fixed.


    • Editing comments: Editing comments inside tasks on the boards page was showing <p> tags inside the comment box, this is now fixed as we're stripping the HTML when editing them.


    Optmizations On The Atarim Dashboard


    • Email inbox validation: Previously, we were not checking to see if the email you are forwarding to matches the email that is connect to your email inbox. Now, we validate this to ensure that the forwarder you're setting up is correct.
