Comments improvements: Images and rich formatting.
Comments are becoming better, now there are full blown rich edit fields with all bells and whistles. You can write large comments with formatting, tables, images and checklists. You can create entities from comment text and insert links to entities. NOTE: @Mentions does not work yet.

Lookup Fields
This is a powerful thing to automatically access fields from higher levels of hierarchy. For example, if you have hierarchy Product-Epic-Feature, you can add fields for Feature to see Product or Epic Importance.

Colors and Emoji in Single Select
Add colors in your life and in single select fields. Emoji can be added as well. This will help to spot important things faster.

States smart icon
Workflow extension has new cool icon to indicate state progress:

What is this, and how do I use it?

I guessed it might be the same as GitHub or Dropbox Paper’s checkbox syntax and tried entering [ ], - [ ], [], - [] and it didn’t do what I expected to do.

@ento I see. In fact it was a fix that allowed turn on and off numbered and bullet list formatting. Checkbox List component is in our backlog. But we did not start implementation yet.

Ah okay, then I think it would be clearer to either not list that fix in the changelog (since it’s not user-visible yet) or clarify that it’s a preparatory bug fix. I’d also suggest marking each bullet point as bug fix, new feature, or enhancement, so that it’s quicker to scan and understand the changelog entries.

Good idea! Will do it.

Hello!
Few questions about timelines.

  1. Do you plan coloring/formatting options for you timeline? I mean change colors of bars/tasks in timeline depending the custom field of entity.
  2. Do you plan to implement visual dependencies for timeline tasks?
  3. Do you plan to make folders/filter for timeline backlog panel?
  4. Do you plan to implement lane grouping (including nested), sorting and extended filtering? For example, lanes are teams/departments and sublanes are assignees, and I can exclude some departments from view.
  5. Also ‘weeks’ zoom is desired, it feels like the gap between ‘days’ and ‘months’ views.
  6. Also I’ve got an error after attempt to create new assignee from timeline grouped by assignee (see screenshot).

Your timeline feature looks very nice, but these features are desired for 100% utilization.

Hey Vitali,

“Plan” is such a vague word, so I’ll use probabilities instead.

  1. coloring/formatting options — 50% in the next 6 months, 90% in the next 2 years. Not just for Timeline, but also for other views;
  2. visual dependencies — 20% 6m, 50% 2y;
  3. folders/filter for timeline backlog panel — 50% 6m, 90% 2y chance of redesigning Timeline backlog from scratch. Filters are likely, while folders are not;
  4. nested lanes — 5% 6m, 30% 2y. Would suggest using context Timelines for Teams/Departments instead;
  5. ‘weeks’ zoom — 90% 6m;
  6. should be fixed by now :slight_smile:

Would you please share what you’re planning? Is it a product roadmap?

Hi - looks like import from CSV to new or existing type has been removed. Is this coming back?

Hi @antoniokov, I just posted some details of what I’d like to accomplish with dependencies and visualization here:

General Feedback Request on Entity Scheduling and Dependencies

My use case is Project work that you could first plan with an anticipated schedule, then see how that schedule actually adjusts depending on changes to task dates within - if they finish later, or even ahead of schedule. Within these projects could be Features that are being built. The Features would be one type of entity in Fibery, with many tasks related that have to do with building the Feature successfully - dev task, review, QA, deployment.

So Ideally I’d like to be able to track on multiple levels here - one of the big pluses of Fibery vs. other apps:

  • Track a project, for example “Launch new Functionality x to market” - which would involve building features, doing marketing, releasing content, communicating with existing users, etc. This is all “work” I will track in a few types of tasks, but I want the project to only show actual “work.” So the content pieces, the software features, since they are not “work” but rather “elements” that persist in my system, I’d like to track them elsewhere in Fibery.
  • See a board of the Features I’m trying to develop. They will have tasks tracked in the Project I mentioned above - for example each will have a “dev task,” “review” etc. but they are not strictly work in the project.

So I’d like to track both the progress of the build of these Features in one area of Fibery, and the progress of the work that is needed to build them in another area, the “Project.”

To give just a bit more context, with Fibery I can track the actual “work” in a Feature Build this way with this “Project” entity, as opposed to taking the feature and moving it through a complex workflow to track it’s build, like I’d have to do in Jira or other strictly development tools. This is a big plus, because in reality if I have a project with cross-functional work, I don’t want a “feature,” that is actually not strictly speaking a “task,” in the same Project with task work, like “prepare marketing campaign” or “contact PR vendor,” because in reality they are not the same “type” of entity. Putting them together leads to inaccuracies in tracking work. And with Fibery I can avoid this!

I hope that’s clear and very eager for any help you can provide on what I can do now with Buttons, Formulas, and your API!

When it comes to your whiteboard how come you didn’t go into a relationship with Miro for example. I use miro all the time and it really is superb and it would take you guys a long time to mirror their functionality.

Hi guys,

I agree Miro is a strong product, but what makes me so excited about Fibery’s Whiteboard is how well it is integrated with the Entity structure. This is a differentiator for me and I strongly support your guys’ development of this on your own.

The main thing that I find extremely unique is for the diagrams in Fibery to relate to the actual Entities and their actual relations. Within apps like Miro, and LucidChart which is another excellent solution, your diagrams will live in a silo outside any actual work tool, such as Jira or Fibery. Even with some of the better integrations out there, like Miro-to-Jira, these are overly simplistic and you can’t see any relations between the two tools. It is invaluable for my use case, and I think @mdubakov and team have huge potential among software team, to be able to create stuff like Logical Network Diagram Template, ERD’s, etc. that will actually update based on the work that gets done in Fibery. I think a big problem with users of Miro or Lucidchart for software development is that those diagrams that live in those tools are almost immediately out of date if work is carried out in a work management tool.

I have a request here for this “auto-generating” capability that I’m pretty sure the Fibery team has in the plans:

I actually looked around for years for a solution to this, there is none!, so I really applaud the Fibery team for moving along this path, and prioritizing Whiteboard.

Thanks!
