We’re happy to announce that the latest release of our flagship software is available today! Version 1.2.1 is now available and we’ve added some great new features that will make Constant Status easier to use.
This release includes:
- Notification previews
- Customizable timeline filters
Now you no longer need to be apprehensive about the formatting of your notification, or if you're sending it to the correct recipients. While on the notification form, just select the "Preview" button and you will see a preview of the notification as well as the intended recipients.
Customizable Timeline Filters
While there has always been a summary timeline of all of the notifications that have been sent by you and your team (http://companyname.constantstatus.com/status) now you have the flexibility to create your own custom timelines based on search criteria. Simply add a new Timeline channel, enter the criteria for filtering, and enter your own personalized URL. Save the timeline filter, and now it will be accessible at http://companyname.constantstatus.com/status/<your personalized url>.
We're on a mission to make ConstantStatus as easy as possible for you and your team to use. We've listened to your feedback and have made a couple significant usability improvements.
- We have improved our error handling when creating notifications. Now, if a required field is missing a value, it scrolls to that field and highlights it.
- We also don't want users to lose their work if they accidentally hit the back button or refresh the page so now you will be prompted prior to taking either of those actions.
- Lastly, all date/time fields now include the AM/PM meridiem to eliminate any potential confusion between the senders and/or recipients.
