Improved Cycles

We redesigned the Cycles screen. Each cycle now has a progress bar that shows a summary of the tasks inside the cycle.

It is now easier to add, rename, and reorder cycles using the new "Edit cycles" screen.

You can also open any cycle in a full screen view (previously only possible with the Active and Next cycles).

Fixes & Improvements

  • Fixed: The Active and Next cycle screens would sometimes appear empty because filters were applied from another view.
  • Fixed: An issue that caused older notes to not show in the notes feed.
  • Fixed: The Weekly appeared as "Untitled" in Favorites & Recents.
  • Fixed: The Weekly could be renamed, which should not be allowed.
  • Fixed: Contributors could update the base avatar or group cover photo even if they didn't have the correct permissions.
  • Fixed: Deleted notes were not removed from the Recents section in the sidebar
  • Fixed: When visiting a document via a direct link, the dropdown would not show under the document title.
  • Fixed: On task views, the "Order by" and "Group by" menus behaved unexpectedly.

Upgraded Notes

Notes provide a lightweight way to write something down and share it with the team. As we've observed contributors starting to organize their base into groups, we see that Notes are playing a larger role in the base. Notes are being shared & used to collaborate amongst teams and with external collaborators. We're giving Notes a refresh in this update. This way they can play a larger role in helping contributors capture and collaborate on documents to support their work.

Note Titles

You can now add a title to any note in Clarity! This lets you quickly search for notes by their title and easily find them in your Recents, Favorites and Pinned sections as well.

Cleaner Notes

When writing, we want as few distractions as possible. That's why we've simplified the appearance of a note while you're writing in it.

New Ways to Create Documents

We've decentralized the "Add New" button to provide more context for when to use each type of document. This also helps with creating notes in specific groups (and will apply to tasks when we roll our Group Work in Phase 4).

You can create new documents by clicking the "+" button on each item of the sidebar.

Each screen in the app also has a button in the top right corner for creating new documents. For example: "+ Note", "+ Wiki Page", "+ View", etc

Recent Documents

Recently opened documents are listed in the Search sidebar, but this means they're not as accessible or obvious as they should be. Now, the six documents you've viewed most recently are displayed in the sidebar where you can easily get back to them. This is similar to having papers on your desk that you've picked up recently. It keeps things "at arms reach".

Group Profiles

We rolled out Groups with Phase 1 of Clarity 2.0. We've since made some improvements to the experience. In your Group Profile, you can now seamlessly create sections, insert links, and reorder all sections & links to make the profile your own. You can now edit your group’s cover photo directly on the profile by clicking Edit in the top bar.

Easily create a new group from the Groups screen. You can view Groups using the More menu in the sidebar.

Fixes & Improvements

  • Remove a group cover photo. To remove your group's cover photo, enter edit mode in the Group Profile and hover over the cover photo. Click the trash button in the top right corner of the photo to remove it, and then click 'Done' to save your changes.
  • Unarchive a group. You can now easily unarchive any group by heading to the Groups screen from the sidebar.
  • Updated New Task Modal. We updated the style of the new task modal to be more compact and clean.
  • Previously, if a task or project card included many tags, they would overlap in the Kanban view. We now improved the appearance of cards in this view and tags should no longer overlap.
