Improved Content Linkages, and More!

Version 2.5.0

Improved

  • Inside a Content Item, you now have all Linked Content (Signals, Signal Clusters, Trends Megatrends) listed in a single Linked Content section! This layout improvement has been requested by many of our users...and we indeed agree this is a lot better than the previous version!

  • In the Community view, Administrators and Trend Managers can now see the latest activity date of users whose access to FIBRES they are allowed to manage.

  • We also improved the performance of the Radar view when working with large numbers of Trends and/or Megatrends.

  • ...and finally, we've even been working on some updates "under the hood": there is new stuff already just waiting for some final details before going public...please stay tuned!

July release is here!

Version 2.4.2

New

  • Introducing a new premium feature: CSV exports! With this feature enabled, you have the option to export your current search result in Discover view into a CSV file for further big data analytics, etc. Please contact support@fibresonline.com if you are interested...and also ask for information about other FIBRES premium features!
  • The front page has been improved based on your valuable feedback:
    • Fewer carousels are now shown by default. But don't worry, all carousels are still available - you can select which ones you wish to see in your front page settings.
    • There's also a new carousel available for Unlinked content! This is certainly useful for spotting content that might need some additional work: signals that have not yet been associated with any trend for example. Unlinked content is also available as a new filter option in the Discover view.

Improved

  • New password policy: Next time you change your password, you will be required to use a more secure password. This obviously also applies to newly registered users. Your existing password will continue to work, but you are encouraged to change your password if it's been a while since you last did so. When entering a new password, a new and shiny password strength meter will help you with choosing a strong password :)
  • Users view has been improved with an option to filter users and invitations by email address.
  • The hideable search filter for list views now has an improved layout on mobile devices.

Fixes

  • Security: HTML attachments are no longer opened in the browser by default.
  • Fixed a problem where some web clipped content items were showing an empty white space in place of the article image on IE11.
  • Squashed a number of minor layout issues here and there.

Patch release 2.3.3

Fixes:

  • Users with Manager user rights were allowed to manage invitations for other managers and administrators, when this should only be allowed for trend scouts and read-only users
  • When using the Web Clipper, the creation of a new content item sometimes got stuck if there was a problem extracting the image from the web article
  • Minor layout fixes here and there for mobile devices

Improvements:

  • If joint evaluation is enabled in your FIBRES account, the average of each evaluation is now only shown to a user after they have given their vote. Please contact support@fibresonline.com if you are interested in using the joint evaluation feature.

Small fixes and tweaks

Version 2.3.2

Fixes:

  • Fixed a problem where rendering the users list was slow in environments with a lot of users accounts
  • Fixed a problem where users with access to a private content item visible to them via a workspace could not link their workspaces to the private item

Improvements

  • Long content item titles are now truncated in Radar visualization to improve readability
  • Improved security of platform and workspace invitations even further (the change is only visible to users as slightly different looking invitation links)

Usability improvements for search and filtering stuff in FIBRES and a lot more!

Version 2.3.0

new features!-2.png

Features and fixes:

  • Moving the filter-modal to left side of the screen in all views (Discover, Radar, Network, Workspaces).
  • Showing the filtered results on real-time: while the user selects how he wants to filter the view, the results are immediately shown.
  • The search bar is now always visible on list views like Discover or Workspaces. Scroll down the list and see what search words you are using. If using mobile, you can hide the bar if it gets on the way.
  • Home page's carousels order is renewed, see the recent updates first. Remember, that what you view on the home page can be adjusted per browser and device. View only those carousels that are meaningful for your work.
  • File upload improvements: new download symbol indicating what the user needs to do.
  • Possibility to edit the content item's source name and copy the source link with a click.
  • Radar visualisation's sphear (ball) size and detection, and the font size got some little tweaks too.
  • Archiving a Workspace is now possible. (Use Advanced filters to see and restore archived content.)
  • View all invited collaborators in a Workspace under "Show more" -button.

Ready to meet the future? How about asking a question from your users?

  • You can now have one question of your liking that you can ask from the users. For example, "Company Readiness"! Tailor the question to your liking!
  • This is a premium feature, so get in touch and let's talk more.

Changes to user rights:

  • 'Trend Managers' can invite users with 'Trend Scout' or 'Read Only' rights to the platform.
  • 'Administrators' can edit and choose the visibility rules in their account (for example hide the Analyse-section if wanted, or choose a section to be visible to certain user rights only).

Tweaks on the Radar visualisation

Version 2.2.10

Small improvements this time


The Radar-visualisation had some tweaks, like a new legend (explainer), better spread for trends shown on the radar within a sector, and a possibility to zoom closer with smaller devices.

Thank you for the feedback and see you next time! :)

Radar update and introducing Megatrends

Version 2.2.9

Visualisations

  • Radar had a little facelift this time! The size of the “trend balls” is now depicting the evaluated impact strength. So be sure to go and evaluate all the trends you have in your FIBRES account.
  • Filter content based on their type on both Radar and Network visualisations, narrow down the items you wish to discuss.
  • Best thing here though is that per request from team FIBRES, new values for “primary domain of impact” are available. Contact us for more! It shows up on each content, under Impact assessment and ultimately puts trends on their positions in the Radar-visualisation.

Screenshot 2019-04-05 at 15.23.06.png

  • We have a new content type called Megatrend! This can be a good addition for everyone working with their foresight content. Megatrend is naturally an option for filtering content in Discover, Radar and Network.
  • It’s also visible as a default carousel on the home page and as in Analysis-section (Analysis is an area where users can link content in a randomised way, be surprised and see what FIBRES suggests for you).
  • New layout for PowerPoint exports for Foresight content types (Signals, Signal Clusters, Trends, Megatrends and Workspaces)

For our administrator users there are also few more tools

  • New default message templates for inviting new users.
  • Resend the invitation with one click of a button for invitees that may have lost their original invitation message.
  • You can keep an eye on easier on the amount of users in your own FIBRES account. You’ll also see the numbers according to each role.
  • First version of the invoicing view is rolled out. This is a place where as an administrator (person who placed the order for FIBRES in the first place for example) can fill in invoicing details if needed. This is not yet mandatory even for our paid accounts. You’ll find it behind the support area and Administration (visible only to admin users).

More choices on how to use visualisations

Version 2.2.8

Happy Valentine’s Day! Or Friend’s Day as we celebrate it in Finland.

Starting from the most visible changes first:

  • In the visualisations (Network and Radar) option to hide out any content that does not match a selected filter in Network and Radar
  • Also in visualisations, an option to filter out content that is linked to a Workspace, filtering option is available in the filter modals in Network, Radar, and also in Discover
  • Support hub also has a short introduction video now to the key elements of FIBRES.
  • User profile area layout change (moving the elements to different positions: picture and name information side by side, save + password change side by side, log out on the right corner of the area).
  • Home page showing max 10 cards in a carousel and ‘show more’ -call to action shown in the carousel default card (the last card shown on carousels).
  • In all list views, improved comment indicator on cards. A highlighted symbol indicating new comments, a tooltip showing the number when hovering on top.
  • In Analyse-section, signals also included in the randomized content suggestions.
  • Showing “close the content” -button also after creating a new signal with a web clipper, or navigating to the platform via shared link (user will return to Discover (signal/ topic/ trend) or Workspace (workspace)).

Thanks for checking! And have an insightful week!
