We just updated Kerika today, and along with the usual bug fixes and other behind-the-scenes stuff we have made an improvement to the way Views are shown on your Home Page:
Some of our users have dozens of boards in active use at the same time, with large (and sometimes overlapping) teams, and as a result their Views counts are nearly always high.
As you can see from the screenshot above, the Home page now shows two counts for each View:
- The total number of items that match for that View, and
- The number of items that match that are assigned to you.
This makes it easier to see if you need to go back to a View to catch up on something that’s directly related to you, i.e. is assigned to you.
And yet another tutorial video, part of our ongoing effort to create a bunch of learning materials for new users! This one is about getting a lot done, which means using Kerika for large scale projects.
And Kerika’s Views feature helps you stay on top of things no matter how many projects you have underway at any time.
Here’s a quick tutorial video on how to get the most out of Kerika’s Highlights and Views:
How Chat works in Kerika: a new tutorial video that shows how Kerika’s chat is the smarter alternative to email for distributed teams.
The latest in our series of updated tutorial videos for new users 🙂
Following a request from a student at the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya in Barcelona, Spain, we have decided to add UOC to the list of universities and schools where users automatically get free Academic Accounts.
A free Academic Account is intended to help students and educators get more done with their teams: a free Account has all the features of Kerika, but is limited to a maximum of 10 Team Members working on boards owned by that Account.
Every user can set up their own Account, so effectively it is possible for a very large group of students and educators to use Kerika free for their academic work!
If you are interested in getting Kerika for your (nonprofit) school or college, please get in touch!
And another video in our revamped tutorial series: how you can manage your teams and privacy in Kerika.
We hope these tutorials are useful; let us know what you think.
OK, another tutorial video done: this time on how to use Kerika with Box.
Kerika works seamlessly with Box for secure storage of all your project files: just sign up as a Kerika user with your Box ID, and all your Kerika files will be stored in your own Box Account, where they will always be under your control.
This tutorial video shows you how.
Intended audience for this video: new Kerika users who want to leverage Box.
We are (finally!) getting around to updating the Kerika tutorial videos; what we have on our YouTube channel has definitely gotten stale.
Here’s the first in the new series:
This video is intended for new users: people who discover Kerika and sign up to start new accounts.
For people who sign up by clicking on an invitation email sent from a coworker, we have a different video that is more focused around their needs:
And, finally, for people who sign up to use Kerika with Google Apps — and this is the vast majority of Kerika users, worldwide — we have this video:
There’s a lot more coming.
