Announcing Axosoft v17

Introducing a fresh, new look and more features

 Update: Slack integration now available in v17 (for Hosted accounts only)

A new year is fast approaching, and many people are setting their intentions to become a better version of themselves in 2017. The Axosoft product team has been hard at work getting Axosoft in shape to be even better too!

We’re excited to announce a fresh, new look for Axosoft! That’s right, Axosoft v17 has an updated UI and enhanced UX, which makes it easier than ever before to onboard new users and streamline your actions in-app.

Organize Panel

First, we have updated the panels and the main workspace. The overall placement remains the same but you’ll notice elements have been re-styled. Also, search is now available for all panes in the Organize panel.

The menus have been replaced with a vertical ellipsis that houses all pane options. So for example, if you select a project, you can either right click to edit or click the ellipsis to edit.


Main Workspace

The main workspace has been simplified and redone. The options for List View, Card View, Rank View, and Sort by rank, have been consolidated in one location next to the refresh icon.

The Add, Edit, and Workflow menus remain in the same area, but the Filters menu is now located in the upper left of the UI. Any active filters will be shown here, in the filters bar.

Kanban Card View

If you access the kanban Card View, you can now check the box in the top-left corner to select each card. Use this to multi-edit items like you do in the List View. We have also included icons with the number of comments, subitems, or attachments, in the upper-right of the card.

Tabs have also been updated! Click the + to add a tab, and you’ll see that your tabs are now organized into several categories: built-in Axosoft tabs, your personal tabs, and public tabs that are shared with your team. The option Duplicate Current Tab was moved to the top, so you can quickly make a copy of what you see, make any additional modifications, and then save it for later.
