July 2019: Here is where we are at

Hello everyone!

This week we have added a new feature to FacileThings that opens up new opportunities for Office 365 users: Now you can attach OneDrive files to your actions as reference material. You can see the details here.

In the coming weeks we will work on a package of small improvements. The most relevant are related to the importation of tasks via email and the integration process with Evernote. As always, we will post the details on the blog.

We also updated the mobile app a couple of weeks ago (version 2.3.7) and introduced some changes in order to solve the problem of data synchronization. The number of cases has been reduced, but they still occur from time to time. We continue to making tests and optimizing the process. In any case, make sure you always have the latest version installed.

That is all. Enjoy the holidays, if you have them!

It's nice and all, but it seems to me that there are matters more pressing than integrations with Office and Evernote (Personally, I use neither - I'm all in on Google and its ecosystem).
The Android App is lacking several key features, like widgets, or a "send to" function. I've invested a lot of effort in getting my system set up with FT, but the lack of these very basic features, and their apparent low status on your road-map, makes me start looking for alternative apps... *** SIGH ***... Again. What motivates you to prioritize this way? When do you plan for these basic features to appear?

Hi Thomas,

In FacileThings we have two separate working groups, one for the development of the web application and integration services, and another for the development of the mobile application. By this I mean that the works in the integration with Evernote and Outlook do not affect the development of the mobile app.

Once we solve the synchronization issues of the mobile app (that is the highest priority right now), we will focus on improving the mechanisms of capture that, make no mistake, are vitally important and a high priority for us. I hope that in the coming months, those important features you mention are already available.

We know that the mobile app is behind the web application in features and usability, and we will try to catch up as soon as possible. It will take some time though.

I hope I have clarified your doubts ;)
