Feng Office 2.5.1 has been released!

03/18/2014

 

Hi everybody!!
 
It has been a while since our last post, but it does not mean we are not around.
 
On the contrary! We have been working very hard on new improvements and enhancements!
 
Some of them have been released in the 2.5.1 version, but most of them will be available in the upcoming 2.6 one, so you will have to stay tuned for the upcoming news as well!
 
 
So, lets see what does the 2.5.1 version offer:
 

1- Dashboard Settings:

Were you wondering how to see only your events and tasks instead of everyones or how to move a widget to your right in your Dashboard, or may be even how to get rid of it?
If that is so… you may now do it!
You just need to Edit your account preferences and access the Dashboard options section.
In there you can play with different options as shown below:
 

 

2- Comments Widgets:

On the other hand, taking the opportunity we were changing our Dashboard a bit, some people were desperate to have a widget including the latest comments, so we added an initial version of it:
 


 

3- Languages updates:

Some Feng Office users helped us out by providing us with some updates of the texts in the French, Italian and Turkish languages respectively.
Please bear in mind this help is always welcome as we are not fluent in all of the available languages. If you would like to help us out, just drop us an email to contact@fengoffice.com

 

4- Faster way to input your Web Documents:

Since Feng Office is compatible with Google Docs and other online documents, we have introduced a new and faster way to “upload” these aforementioned documents:
 

5- Performance

As usual, performance kept on improving and now many things take less time to load!
Good news are that there still are many enhancements to be applied in this area!

 

6- Bugfixing

Many small issues were fixed. For a more detailed list we suggest looking into the Release Notes of the source code.

 

New free trials will be created this new version next week onwards, and clients will be updated soon to it as well.
Since there are not few though, in case you would like to rush your upgrade just reach over your Account Executive or the Support Team, which will gladly help you out.
 
For those using the Community Edition, you may download the files from here and then proceed with the upgrade.
 
We hope you like this new version… and remember to follow us on Facebook!

Feng Office 2.5 has been released!

01/07/2014

 

Hello everyone!!
 
We wanted to welcome the 2014 with a new release in its final form!! The 2.5 one!
 
This release has been started a while back, having its Beta and RC versions released back in December 2013.. but since now it is stable enough to have its final version available, we went for it!
 
This new version has tons of new features and improvements!
 

1- System performance:

We know performance is critical for people using Feng Office since a long while and with tons of information. Therefore we kept on improving it (and will keep on doing so!) even further:
1.1- Whenever you want to create or edit an object, the loading view will respond almost instantly!
1.2- Loading objects (emails, documents, notes, etc.) is much faster than before!
1.3- Normal search and advanced ones got much more enhanced!
1.4- When typing a new email, you no longer have to wait for all the contacts to load in background if you have over 1.000 contacts (otherwise this would still be fast).
You just need to type 3 letters and the contact will be shown immediately!
 

2- Multiple Files Upload support:

Yes!! You did not misread!! Feng Office is at last able to support multiple file uploading! This will save you (and us!) lots of time whenever documents must be uploaded either to be sent in an email or to be kept somewhere in the system.
In order to achieve this, when selecting the files, you just need to press the Ctrl or Shift keys to select more than one at once.
 

3- Reports Module has been tuned as well:

Reports screen has been widely cleared! Now they are easier to understand, and time reports also support custom properties related to tasks (just like in the old days)
Not only that… We have worked on a new Advanced Reports plugin for those using the Professional or Enterprise Edition.
We will make a new blogpost about this later on.

 
 

4- Documents notifications have been empowered:

You may now change the notification subject when working on a document, plus, you may also decide whether the document will be attached to the notification or not so that you can avoid having to log in to the system and download the file.
 

5- Security:

We indeed consider having safe and secure systems is of utmost importance, therefore we have been investigating even further in this field and some protocols and functions were improved a little bit in order to increase security even more!

 

6- Easier way to declassify information:

Feng Office supports lots of ways to classify or declassify information
Now we have added a new one! If you would like to declassify information you may drag and drop it to the View all option on the left, instead of accessing it, editing, changing where is it at, and saving the changes.
 

7- Bugfixes:

There are several issues that have been fixed! You may look for the list on the readme file of the 2.5 final version.
 
 
New free trials are already being created with this new version, and clients will be updated soon to it as well. Since there are not few though, in case you would like to rush your upgrade just reach over your Account Executive or the Support Team, which will gladly help you out.
 
For those using the Community Edition, you may download the files from here and then proceed with the upgrade.
 
We hope you like this new version… and remember to follow us on Facebook to keep tuned on the upcoming ones!
