It’s easier now to see how many checklist items remain

We made a small UI improvement that makes it easier now for you to see how many Checklist items (subtasks) remain open on a card:

 

A number will appear next to the Checklist icon when you are looking at tasks on a board: this is the number of open Checklist items for that task. We don’t show the total number because it’s the remaining ones that are more important, but if you hover over the number a tooltip will show you that as well:

It’s now even easier to catch up on changes in attachments and checklists

The orange arrow that appears at the top or bottom of a column when there are unread updates that are out of view has proved to be a very useful and popular feature, so we have extended the concept to work inside of tasks (cards) as well: if there is an unread change to a checklist item, or attachment, that’s out of view for you, an orange arrow will appear to help guide to you it:

The way these orange arrows work is very intuitive: just click on it to have the view scroll up automatically to show the next unread checklist item or attachment.

Kerika is now available in 37 languages

We have always had users from around the world, and we estimate that close to 80% of them are from countries where English isn’t the main language.  To make Kerika even easier to use by our global user base we did a massive translation effort, using a combination of AI and sheer hard-work, to create translations of our website in 37 languages.

This is far more than competitors, even those with budgets that are 100x larger than ours, has attempted; Trello, for example, is available in 20 languages, Asana in 12. But then, our competitors aren’t thinking as globally as we are: we have always had a vision of producing a powerful task management tool that’s easy enough to be used by people from anywhere in the world.

AI isn’t perfect yet, by any means, so it’s possible that our translations have mistakes. We welcome your feedback: if you see anything that you think needs correcting, please send us a screenshot.

It’s easy to leave Kerika

We have always made it easy (we thought!) to leave Kerika, which means closing all your accounts and deleting all the associated data: there was a button for this in the Manage Account screen, but we occasionally would get emails from folks asking us to close their accounts.  We concluded that not everyone was finding our old button easy to find, so we moved it right up to the main profile menu:

If you choose this action, Kerika will email you a code that you need to enter to confirm your action, since closing an account is a one-way street: there’s no way to get it back after it’s gone!
