Next Iteration of Docs

Hi again, and sorry for the barrage.

I was curious about your plans for Docs. I’m glad you have some very fundamental, but frequently absent features already, among my favorites:

  • Ability to create a seamless list of entities in a few clicks by highlighting. You may be familiar with a feature on Confluence that let’s you create into a Jira Epic issues, but it’s very cumbersome and buggy, and requires a lot of manual work later. I think you guys have already gotten a better start, and if you added some table integrations, so for example you could add dates and assignees right off, this would become super powerful

  • quick add via backslash of a number of items, very useful

  • Ability to add anywhere within Fibery

On my list for future requests:

  • Highlighting text. For now I cannot see that this is possible
  • Commenting on the entire doc
  • Basic info at a glance such as last modified, created, who created it
  • Possibly publishing when finished, and not autosaving? This actually is a feature of Confluence I think is very useful
  • Quick create to .pdf for sharing
  • Versioning

Thanks guys and eager to find out if you plan this stuff, and what else might be in store!

Currently you can select a list of text (bullet list) and create entities from the list.

Entity representation in Document is very simplistic right now, just name and type. Later we want to provide customization, where you can show additional fields like assigned people, due date, etc.

  • quick add via backslash of a number of items, very useful

Do you mean create new Entities like Tasks?

  • Ability to add anywhre within Fibery

What does it mean?

  • Highlighting text. For now I cannot see that this is possible

Sure, this is in plans.

  • Commenting on the entire doc

We replicated comments from Google Docs and we thought two types of comments would be confusing.

  • Basic info at a glance such as last modified, created, who created it

In plans.

  • 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?

  • Quick create to .pdf for sharing

In plans.

  • Versioning
