What’s in our latest release

A ton of bug fixes, most of them so obscure that no end-users ever spotted them, but since we track our error codes seriously we make sure we fix stuff that no one even knew fixing.  Some of the bug fixes are truly obscure, here’s a few from our latest version that’s easier to explain:

  • There were some problems related to how our iOS app was updating that were a result of Apple deciding not to support Progressive Web Apps anymore.  (Thanks for nothing, Apple.)
  • When a person renamed a file attached to a task or board, the file was appearing as having unread updates (orange highlight) to the user who made the change.
  • For our Kerika+Microsoft users, we needed to make sure the correct OneDrive icons were appearing where files were attached to tasks and boards.
  • Also for our Kerika+Microsoft users: OneDrive files are better support for users of our Whiteboards feature.
  • When a text field could potentially be auto-filled using the browser’s saved values, if a user selected a saved value it wasn’t displaying properly.  (Thanks to a breaking change in one of Chrome’s many, many updates — seriously, why are they releasing new versions every week?)
  • Dates shown for non-English users will now appear in the locally selected languages.
  • If a user opened a task on the mobile apps that had been found by doing a search, editing the task’s title was showing HTML characters.
  • Handling situations better where two people were making changes to the same task at the same time: users are warned if someone else has made changes that would get overwritten if they saved their own changes.
  • Improvements in the new user experience: this is, frankly speaking, a never-ending quest for us!
  • Fixed a situation where a new user who didn’t complete their signup returned later to Kerika: the language selection that’s the first thing that a new user does wasn’t working properly.
  • We made it easier for people to stop getting their 6AM task summary emails; we really should have done this a long time ago.
  • Fixed a long-existing bug that finally surfaced that omitted some tasks from the 6AM emails.


For 4 quarters in a row, Kerika has been identified as a Leader in Task Management by Sourceforge

Kerika + Twine: a great partnership for freelancers everywhere

We are thrilled to announce a partnership with Twine, a global expert network that major companies are using to outsource all kinds of work:

  • Designers
  • Animators
  • Musicians
  • Filmmakers
  • Photographers
  • Marketers
  • Developers
  • Illustrators

Twine has over 500,000 registered members already, and is growing fast — and we are thrilled to be partnering with them to help Twine’s freelancers and clients get more done using our Task Boards.

Twine’s users are exactly the kind of folks that Kerika was designed for: creative people, developers, freelancers and businesses that need to come together quickly to execute on a project.  In an environment that’s that fast-moving, having access to a task management tool that’s designed specially for remote and distributed teams, with a design that’s simple enough for anyone to get going with, is essential.

And that’s where Kerika can help Twine’s community.

As part of this partnership we will develop custom templates that can help Twine projects get going faster.  And that’s just a starting point: we hope, over the coming months, to deepen this relationship!

We would like to know a little about you

We are asking new users two simple questions, at the time of sign up:

Questions at Sign Up

These two questions, that take just a few seconds to answer, will help us create a more custom onboarding experience for new users. This is still a work-in-progress, of course, and in the first step we are just collecting some data while we get the rest built.  There are a bunch of customization ideas we are exploring. Stay tuned.

This is Us

Our team has had much to celebrate over the past few months, as we achieve milestone after milestone.  This is the India-based development team of Kerika:
