Improving Meeting Notes πŸ“

 

New

  

Changelog media (1880 Γ— 800 px) (11).png

Morgen introduces support for basic formatting options (bold, italic, etc.) for your event notes. This makes it easier to structure your meeting agenda and action items. This is only the first step towards better meeting notes in Morgen, stay tuned ;)

Note: rich formatting is available for events stored in Google Calendar and Outlook. Unfortunately, this is not a standard for CalDAV providers.

 

Fix

  

This release also brings some bug fixes and improvements:

  • we fixed a problem sometimes causing a cryptic error message Missing iCalUID when importing events from a .ics file.
  • we fixed the due date on tasks coming from the Microsoft To Do integrations, which was sometimes off by one day

As always, feel free to reach out and let us know what you think about the latest changes. We'd love to hear your feedback on both Morgen for Desktop and the brand new Morgen mobile experience.

Introducing Morgen for Mobile 🀩

 

New

  

Changelog media (1880 Γ— 800 px) (6).png

The most requested Morgen feature of all time is here!

πŸ‘‰ Early access to Morgen for iOS and Android is now available. Capacity is still limited, so access to the mobile app is available to Morgen subscribers (personal and pro plans) only at this time.

The mobile app includes the most used and relied on Morgen features. We continue to develop, so you can expect it to keep getting better. In the meantime, we want to hear your feedback.

To download, select 'Get Morgen for iOS and Android' after clicking on your user avatar in the upper-right corner.

 

Improvement

  
  • Events scheduled in Morgen with a Teams meeting now correctly trigger the Join button in the MS Teams app.
 

Fix

  
  • Sometimes subtasks coming from external sources (Todoist, Microsoft To Do) were displayed in the wrong order. Now they are always anchored to the parent task.
  • We fixed a synchronization issue that could arise with some CalDAV providers.
  • We fixed a problem causing the memory usage of Morgen to grow over time - now Morgen will be less resource intensive on your system.

Copy-Pasting & Summer Tweaks

 

Improvement

  

ezgif-3-e06ca5a41b.gif

Sometimes copy-pasting an event to another day comes in handy so we made it easier. Use Right click -> Copy followed by Right click -> Paste on an empty slot. You can paste the same events multiple times if you wish.

 

Improvement

  

This release comes with a number of other improvements. Here at the main ones:

  • UTC can be selected as a primary or secondary time zone
  • when you copy availability as text, the time zone abbreviation now respects Daylight saving
  • in the (unlikely πŸ˜‰) case that something goes wrong with one of the tasks or video conferencing integrations, Morgen will let you know more clearly
  • the event merging feature is now enabled by default

That would be all for now. Looking forward to your feedback!

Global Shortcut & Other Improvements

 

New

  

Changelog media (4).png

If you are like us and rely on your calendar throughout the day, you surely enjoy the Morgen global shortcut. With Alt+C (Option+C on macOS) you can bring your calendar to the foreground wherever you are, without searching through tens of open tabs.

With this release, it is up to you to decide whether you want Morgen to appear anchored on the side of your main screen, or where you left it the last time you used it.

 

Improvement

  

Morgen now opens your Google Meet calls with the correct default user. This is particularly helpful if you are working with multiple Google accounts to save you from finding the right Google user in your browser while your call is already starting. Make sure you are logged in on your browser with all your Google accounts for this to work best.

 

Improvement

  

While scheduling tasks is a great way to get things done, sometimes to-dos cannot be completed within the planned time. With this release, Morgen shows all the tasks that are left behind in the sidebar so you won't forget them in your calendar.

 

Fix

  
  • We fixed a layout issue in the Month view
  • We fixed a problem preventing some Outlook/Exchange events to be edited

Markdown for Task names

 

New

  

Changelog media (3).png

Markdown support

We’re excited to introduce markdown support for task names, letting you highlight what’s most important. You can now style task names, applying bold, italic, or hyperlinks. Since markdown to-dos are common in Todoist, imported tasks will now maintain their style when displayed in Morgen, both in the sidebar and calendar.

 

Improvement

  
  • New: Danish date-time locale
  • New: Right-click contextual menu in the Agenda view
  • Improved: More robust parsing of malformed CalDAV events
  • Improved: Calendar refresh icon is consistent with the sidebar
 

Fix

  
  • An issue that occurred when copying an event where the new timezone differs from the original one has been fixed
  • Morgen custom notifications on Linux are back on track
  • We fixed an issue that caused possible double bookings from scheduling links when clicking twice on the Confirmation button

Flexible Week & MS To Do Subtasks

 

New

  

flexible-week_EA8FRl5B.gif

Flexible week

Sometimes you want to focus on the near future, sometimes you want to plan ahead. For every use case, Morgen now allows you to quickly customize your week view to display 1 to 10 days. Use Command+number on macOS and CTRL+number on Linux and Windows.

 

New

  

βœ… Microsoft To Do subtasks

Consistent with the Todoist integration, Morgen now displays subtasks from Microsoft To Do.

 

Improvement

  
  • Improved visualization of calendar events that end at midnight.
  • It's now possible to switch calendar views using shortcuts when creating or editing a one-time link.
 

Fix

  

Automatic logouts on Linux (Snap)

In this release, we fixed a problem that was reported by several users who had installed Morgen through the Snap Store. The problem of automatic logouts during the automatic app update has been fixed. You will need to uninstall and reinstall Morgen for this change to take effect.

Some more fixes:

  • Fixed the display of some Greek characters in event titles.
  • Google Meet links now correctly redirect to the default browser.
  • Fixed some formatting issues in the scheduling link reminders.
  • Morgen no longer sends out outdated reminders for booked meetings that have been cancelled or rescheduled by the organizer.

New in Morgen - May Edition 🌳

 

New

  

We have made some major redesign to our onboarding to guide you through the configuration and first steps with Morgen. This will arguably benefit new users first, but it is the foundation of a proper Help Center that will help everyone use Morgen at its full potential!

Hint: you can now hit "?" to open the FAQs and a form to reach out to us.

 

Improvement

  

We also brought several improvements, including:

  • An improved Month view, where the current day is better highlighted and the time of the events is visible again πŸ˜‰.
  • We made private Office 365 / Exchange events actually private - it turns out that Microsoft does not redact the private information from your private events. Instead, Microsoft confidently relies on calendar clients to do that πŸ€”.
  • We added some more options for the duration and buffer time of the Morgen Scheduling Links.
 

Fix

  

Finally, a few fixes (thanks for reporting!)

  • We resolved an issue while moving an event from one calendar to another. Before, the event was often not deleted from the old calendar, thus resulting in a duplicate.
  • We fixed a couple of small glitches, with Tasks and Scheduling Links.
  • We fixed a bug causing inconsistent calendar names in different parts of the Morgen app interface.

Easter Improvements 🐰

This release contains mostly internal changes to power the awesome features that are coming next, but there is also some great news.

 

New

  

In the free plan, the number of meetings that can be booked with a Morgen Scheduling Link increases from 5/month to unlimited! The free includes one active Recurrent Scheduling Link at a time, while One-time Scheduling Links remain unlimited.

Not yet explored the full potential of Morgen Scheduling Links? Visit morgen.so/schedule-meetings-with-ease to see how this can simplify your scheduling.

 

Fix

  

We are also bringing some fixes for problems that have been reported to us, for example

  • We fixed an issue saving events with some CalDAV providers.
  • We fixed a problem causing tasks lists to disappear when renamed using an empty title.

Don't hesitate to reach out with your feedback or just to say hi πŸ‘‹

Event Merging & Other improvements

 

New

  

When you are working with shared calendars, duplicate events inevitably start cluttering your calendar view.

Now Morgen can merge identical events appearing on different calendars: events with the same time and identifier are merged, beautifully. At the same time, you keep the ability to edit each instance individually.

How? Event merging can be enabled from the calendar view dropdown, where you can also customize other visual aspects of your calendar.

Improvement

  
  • We improved the parsing of external .ics files, making it more robust to malformed data.
  • We increased the sensitive area for clicks on events, thus making the selection of very short events easier.
  • We made the creation of new events in the calendar more precise, with the event starting time now rounded according to the "Time Dragging Resolution" setting, instead of "Time Display Resolution".
 

Fix

  
  • The confirmation dialog for actions on calendar events was displayed even when not necessary. This has been fixed now.
  • We fixed event invitations with some CalDAV providers.
  • We fixed a problem causing the creation of events to be in a hanging state for too long.
  • We fixed the Notes field, where links were not clickable anymore in the latest release.
  • We fixed a bug causing deleted tags to remain set on events in a sort of invisible state πŸ‘».
 

Fix

  

Version 2.5.2: with recent updates, some CalDAV providers started reporting errors while trying to update or create an event. Morgen 2.5.2 fixes this issue.

Introducing Native Task Integrations (& more)

 

New

  

3.png

 

Morgen 2.5.0 is here with great news: native integrations with your favorite tools, such as Todoist, Google Tasks, Microsoft To Do, and Microsoft Email! While you could already import external tasks via Zapier, implementing the proper pipeline with Zapier is sometimes hard (and expensive πŸ’°). We know that the right experience can only be achieved with more tight integration between Morgen and other tools.

Starting today, you can integrate Todoist, Google Tasks, Microsoft To Do, and Outlook email directly, without the need for third-party services. This is just the start, more native integrations will come soon.

 

βœ… Todoist, Google Tasks, and Microsoft To Do: organize your day, directly from your calendar

  • Visualize your open tasks directly in Morgen, organized according to the same task lists and projects as you are used to.
  • Plan your time and block your calendar with a simple drag and drop - tasks will be converted to calendar events and marked as private, so the details will not be visible to the people you are sharing your calendar with.
  • Close a task, once the job is done - Morgen will also close the task on the original tool as well.

 

πŸ“§ Outlook Mail: never miss a follow-up

  • Visualize flagged Office 365 emails will be shown in Morgen as tasks, thanks to the Outlook integration - while going through your email, you can now flag those emails you want to follow up later and Morgen will show them in your task list.
  • Jump to the original email in one click.
  • Remove the flag once the corresponding task is marked as done in Morgen.

 

 

New

  

Recurrent Tasks

Morgen adds full support for recurrent tasks. If you schedule a Morgen task, you can now decide to set it daily, weekly, monthly, or even to follow more complex patterns. The tasks will appear in your calendar so you can better organize your time.

 

Improvement

  

Improved Task & Event editor

The Task & Event editor has been reworked to be simpler to use and more consistent. You can now create a task directly from your calendar. We also make the calendar selector easier to find and gave your notes more space.

Improvement

  

A all-new look for your tasks

Tasks scheduled in your calendar will now appear with a new, clean and minimal style. This sets tasks apart from calendar events, so you know what is coming at a glance.

Improvement

  

New toggles to customize Morgen to your needs

  • Hide completed tasks: Morgen can now automatically hide completed tasks from your calendar - completed tasks are marked as free, so they won't block your calendar.
  • Widen current day: you can now decide whether the current day column in the Weekly and 2 Weeks view should be larger than the others.
 

Fix

  
  • Fixed a problem of Morgen Scheduling Links with Fastmail calendar.
  • Fixed an issue causing links in the event description to duplicate after each change.
  • Fixed an issue causing some transparent events to be barely readable.

Besides the announcements above, we have worked hard to bring several more improvements and fixes to this release. If you feel like sharing your feedback with us, don't hesitate to reach out!

Have a great day!
