Update OpenLucius | 3 new features and design update

blog header image

We collected user feedback from which new functions were built, we also improved existing features and did a design update. The highlights:

Group types

The generic term 'group' turned out to be too abstract, we have now divided this into:

  • Company wide
  • Teams
  • Projects

group types

Activity badges in main menu

As soon as there is activity in a group, team or project, you will now see this with badges in the main menu on the left:

Activity badges

Text documents / Notebooks

It is now possible to create text documents, you can also use this as a notebook. Some examples:

  • (Project) documentation
  • Ideas
  • Manuals
  • General business information
  • Onboarding information, for new employees
  • Brainstorms
  • Event preparation.
  • ... and basically everything you want to share and manage in a text document.

The documents can be added in folders, in order to provide structure for multiple documents.

Add new text document:

Text doc

Format text document:

Text doc 2

  1. Title
  2. Content
  3. Add attachments
  4. Send e-mail notifications

Organize text documents in folders:

When you add new members, they are automatically placed in the 'company wide' groups and therefore have immediate access to general information such as company manual, onboarding information or house rules.

Stream items: chats vs other activity

A visual distinction has now been made between chat items and other activity:

Design update

An upgrade has been made in the design: more modern color scheme, font and icons, which also improves readability and usability:
