Hi again guys,
With some discussion about Docs improvements lately, I wanted to come back here and answer your questions about what I was requesting initially. I hope this is useful and sorry I didn’t respond initially:
- Ability to add anywhre within Fibery
What does it mean?
What I meant here was how this already works: Both add an entity into a doc from anywhere in Fibery, or create an entity anywhere in Fibery. In some other apps I’ve tried with similar functionality, you can’t actually freely add across an entire app, but rather within certain sections or projects only.
- Commenting on the entire doc
We replicated comments from Google Docs and we thought two types of comments would be confusing.
I think some of your ideas around Conversations in Apps from here:
" 1. Remote teams . Another idea is to explore remote collaboration patterns and improve them. For example, we use Slack and are not super happy, since we always switch between Slack and Fibery to find information. Yes, Fibery replaced Google Docs for us, but not chat. What if we can get rid of Slack and implement required communication patterns in Fibery to have conversations and work together in one app? What if we can integrate work and documents even tighter using automatic back-references and more advances work representation in documents? There are many ideas and I feel we have something deep here…"
will handle all needs around this request!
- Possibly publishing when finished, and not autosaving? This actually is a feature of Confluence I think is very useful
We did not think about that at all. What specific case you have here?
With this, I meant when you are working on a larger doc, perhaps in Writer’s Mode we have been discussing, you could hit a button like “save” (“publish” is how Confluence handled this) at which point the document is live in Fibery. But the changes aren’t live until you push this button. All the while Autosave is working so you don’t lose changes while composing. If you are working on a specification for example, and aren’t sure the version is ready for consumption by your team, you wouldn’t have it “go public” until you clicked this “save” button. Not to keep talking about Coda, but their rich text editor does this when popped open in “Writer’s Mode” equivalent in Coda:
Thanks guys, and as always hope that made sense and is useful!
