Bug Fixes

2021 is off to a bug-smashing start with over 200+ bugs eliminated this week alone! Within the past two weeks:

  • The first of two major causes of performance-related problems is a large number of visual elements (known as DOM elements) that cause browsers to eat up memory.
  • The second is related to memory leaks, which refers to areas where our code continues to run, even when it's not needed anymore. We found over 300 instances of this and have almost resolved all of them!
  • On the backend, we found what are known as event loops, which cause degraded performance when you're requesting information intermittently. We fixed the known event loops in production.
  • Our speed team is now focused on tidying up the above items as well as improving click speeds so that actions happen more quickly. For example, when you click a menu or navigate to a new page, you'll see instant changes rather than waiting.
  • Additionally, we've written more than 150 automated tests in the past two weeks to ensure we don't introduce any new bugs or issues into the platform in future releases.

We're currently finishing automated testing that will allow us to release the first round of speed updates sometime in February.

Thanks so much for your support and for bearing with us. 💜 - Zeb

Mobile

Sorting & Grouping in List view

Organize your List view on mobile however works best for you! Sort and group your tasks by Status (default), Assignee, Priority, Tags, Due Date, None, or Custom field. Anything you can do on the web app can now be done on mobile!

Global font support

Do you speak a different language than English or communicate with non-English speakers within your Workspace? If yes, then you're going to LOVE this new addition. Mobile now supports global fonts and special characters!

Change status from List view

Previously, you were unable to change a task's status from List view. Instead, you would have to either go into the task or swipe to mark as complete. Well, not anymore!

Quickly change the status of a task directly from List view. Just simply tap the status icon!

Revamped date picker

Setting due dates just got easier. We've revamped the UI for our date picker so it's easier to use!
