29 Dec SuiteDash Development Update – Translation
Development Update For December 29, 2017
The entire SuiteDash Team wants to wish you a happy holiday season! To celebrate the coming new year, we have what might possibly be our biggest and most requested addition. Our Team has been working overtime to roll out this new feature, and we are very proud to announce it: Translation functionality is here! Our customers asked, and we listened. You now have the ability to fully customize the text of your SuiteDash environment, whether it be to translate to a different language, or to use the functionality to customize labels through the software.
Details can be found below, and we also have some updates regarding upcoming SuiteDash features, both in the long and short-term. More info below:
The main focus of today’s post, and one of the most highly requested features we’ve ever had, is Translation. With this new functionality, all of the various text strings throughout your environment are displayed in one menu, that is filterable if you’re looking for a specific item. Each line of text can be edited and replaced to fit your needs. This means you can replace all of the text with translated strings in your desired language, or even use the feature to add your own custom nomenclature. Do you call a collection of tasks “Jobs” or “Cases” instead of “Projects”? With the Translation functionality you can easily make this adjustment. Additionally, you have the option to give each user in your environment the ability to choose whether they see the default (English) text, or your custom translation set. This means your SuiteDash can be bi-lingual, and the language can be adjusted on a per-user basis as needed. The Translation functionality is live now for all customers in the main Settings menu, so feel free to check out and let us know your thoughts!
Coming soon we have our new Intranet functionality, which is similar to the existing Pages feature, but geared more towards internal staff members. With Intranet, you will be able to create Pages (or direct hyperlinks), and assign various internal users, and these links will appear in their top navigation menu. More details on this and other features soon!
Over The Horizon
Looking further ahead, we are working to implement a “Secondary Clients” assignment field for Projects. This would allow for more than one Client to be assigned to a given Project (with one designated as the “Primary Client”). Additionally, soon we will have the first version of our new “theme” and UI overhaul, with a primary focus on improving mobile responsiveness. We are very excited about the coming additions, and we hope to be able to share more details soon!
2018 is going to be a big one for SuiteDash, and we appreciate everyone who has joined us on the ride so far. More info coming soon!
