We have added an exciting new feature: if you were previously using Trello, you can import that data, completely, into Kerika!
We have been testing this as a convenience feature and based upon positive feedback we have expanded this for everyone.
New users will be offered this as an option when they set up their Kerika accounts:
All users will have this option whenever they want to create a new Kerika board:
We built this feature because we have heard from many people switched over from Trello and really liked Kerika’s user experience, features, and support. In the past they had to manually recreate their work inside Trello; now that’s all automated!
Everything is handled nicely: your Trello cards, lists, people, task details, etc. come over. Once you are done, a single click can then send out invitations to all your old Trello colleagues to join you in Kerika.
With our latest update we have made it easy for you to ensure that someone on a board team always sees your chat message, even if they are not assigned to that card.
The old rule was that everyone who is currently assigned to a card would get new chat pushed to them as emails. Now, you can make sure someone gets that email notification right away, even if they aren’t assigned to a particular card:
Using this feature is simple: just type the letter “@” anywhere in your chat message and Kerika offers all the matching suggestions:
“@All” lets you push your chat to every Board Admin and Team Member — something you should do only rarely to avoid annoying people!
Try this feature and let us know if we can improve it.
We got feedback from some users after our last big release on how we could improve the user experience for folks who like to use the auto-numbering feature for Task Boards, and we have made these changes:
When you open a task, it’s number is shown (but can’t, of course, beedited)
You can now search for a numbered task simply by typing “#number” in the Search box
We have done a bunch of things to help folks who need to work with multiple Kerika accounts: a common situation with consulting, outsourcing, or other professional services who need to work with clients who all have their own Kerika accounts.
It starts at the Home page, where we made it easier to filter you view of Boards and Templates to a subset of all the Kerika accounts you can access:
You can use the check boxes in the left navigation area to temporarily hide some accounts, if you want to narrow your view of boards and templates.
More importantly, you can now access boards from different Kerika accounts in the same session: you don’t need to log out of one account and log into another, to be able to quickly switch between boards from different accounts.
The Board Switcher, which shows all the boards you currently have open, across accounts:
It’s also easy to set your preferences on a per-account basis:
The Dashboard (previously labeled “Views”) has new capabilities so you can get a great overview of all your projects, across all your accounts:
This makes it as easy to filter your Views on desktop as we had previously done for mobile users.
If you have a engineering background, you will be comfortable calling the items that show up on Task Boards as “cards” — a term that originated with Kanban production lines in Japan, and then found its way to Scrum boards everywhere.
But for everyone else, “card” is a somewhat obscure, even baffling term, and we would often get asked a fundamental question: “what should I put on a card?
To make this clearer to folks, we are renaming cards as Tasks, because that’s what a Task/Card is: something your team needs to get done.
This is really a cosmetic change: wherever you had previously seen the word “card” you will now see either “task” or the more generic “item”. The ADD A CARD button, for example, is now ADD NEW TASK:
And what had previously been called “tasks within cards” (or sub-tasks), is now more simply called a Checklist:
Again, this is a change in terminology, not a change in functionality, but we hope it will make Kerika easier for the wide variety of users we have across the world, ranging from companies and governments all the way down to schoolkids.
We have added an Undo option for all Sort actions on Task Boards, to make it easier for you to use the sorting function without worrying about making a mistake.
