📱 Mobile Application – Fantastic New Updates

After a significant investment re-writing our Rich Text Editor, we’ve added some great new features and optimized the interface. Making sure we comply with Google’s new requirements. We finally released new versions on Android and iOS.

The new editor nows matches it’s Web counterpart almost feature by feature. Such as the ability to attach and insert inline images, mention people, and some fun new goodies to update the background/foreground text color.

Touch/Face ID login screen in Freedcamp

🔑 Face ID / Touch ID & Fingerprint Authentication!

If your device has one of these features, getting logged into Freedcamp is now faster and more secure.

Google authentication uses Google Play

Google’s one-click login is now using not a browser-based authorization but your Google Play accounts on Android version only.

Task List – add a new task option. Filters are now also supported.

Added new option to task list context menu […] (1) and filters (2).

Swipe left – more

Swipe left actions in tasks expanded. You have access to add a subtask (1), edit (2), and more (3), which expands to give you also delete and view options. This is the first step to expand and add all the options web interface provides – copy or move, shift dates, etc. in the future.

🔎 Filters, sorting & saved searches!

Filters, sorting and saved searches in project tasks

A hint is displayed when filters are selected, and you will notice the lighter colored icon indicating no filters applied. If you only change the sorting order, the icon will remain unchanged.

Filters on the Calendar Board

We also added filters to the Calendar Board.

Filter, sort, access saved searches

You have access to saved searches you create in the web interface (1) and all filter (2) and sort (3) options are supported. You can create new saved searches (and they will be available in the web interface), modify or delete existing ones or add new ones. We called saved searches ‘Favorites‘.

Saved filters are called Favorites

When you selected favorite filter, changed it and want to save – you will be given an option to overwrite or save it with a new name (1) which makes it easy to create new favorites based on exiting ones. Selected filters and sorting options are highlighted (2) – you can always see what criteria were used for filtering tasks.

All the above also applies to the Calendar Board.

Quick add a comment

We added an option to always access ‘add a new comment’ option when inside a task view (1). You can also attach files(2) or open reach editor (3).

🌐 Time Zone updates

Time zone change in sync

We synced and use the same time zones on mobile and web applications and now also will prompt you to update timezone if we detect a change between your Freedcamp settings and time on your device. This helps to make nothings happens in the past or future while you travel πŸ™‚
