🆕 New Features and Functionality
📃 UI Updates
We have been working hard to transition portions of the UI over to React, utilizing our enhanced API, released in August 2021.
We’ve also made enhancements along the way as well! Our end goal is to transition our entire front end to this new technology, which will enable us to build much more robust user experiences in the future!
In this release, we updated:
Project Versions (more on this one below)
📑 Updates to Project Versions
While we updated the Project Versions UI, we've changed how versioning works to better align it with user expectations.
With this update, the concept of a “Version” has changed a bit.
Instead of being a snapshot of a point in time, it is a collection of changes between “creation” and “completion.”
Creation is what you’d expect — when the version is created.
Completion happens when a subsequent version is created, or the project is submitted for approval (since changes are frozen)
A version can still be created “ad hoc” by a user.
A version is automatically created whenever the project (re-)enters the “building” phase: at Project creation, when when the project is rescoped.
When a user restores a version, the platform will create a new version that brings back the state from when the restored version was completed, with the ‘reason’ indicating that the platform restored the previous version number.
📦 Sandbox Environment
We’ve created a free plan and a unique environment where those free plan accounts can live in support of our new pricing model. This update keeps the production environment more streamlined for our paying clients, ensuring you always have a smooth functioning platform!
