Hello everyone!

In the last two months we have been working on the following:

  • We have launched a new version of the mobile app (3.3) that includes new features and an improved design.
  • We have redesigned and improved the Support section.
  • We have upgraded the database server, to improve the performance of the whole system.
  • We have made a number of improvements to the web application design to better suit small screens, laptops, and tablets.
  • We have fixed quite a few small bugs.

Currently, we are planning the update of the Analytics section, which will be completely redesigned and will bring some improvements.

We are also planning the next version of the mobile app, in which we will mainly focus on improving project management.

Finally, we are developing new educational content to help you master the GTD methodology and get the most out of FacileThings. We will tell you how to access them as they are published.

That’s all for now!

Do you have a journal function to be integrated into Facile anywhere on your future list? It would not need to be complicated or involved just tie into a searchable calendar using existing tag structure if desired. Many people who do journals by hand use GTD with the simple Bullet journal method. A lot of extra work having to use a separate journal program when I have so much integrated into Facile and if incorporated everyone could use it as they see fit. Who knows could be a source of new users if added and promoted?

Hi Jim,

Yes, we plan to add an optional add-on in the future for those who want to do journals in an integrated way with their personal management system. We think it makes sense. It will be a long-term thing though.

Thanks for sharing!

Good improvements overall. I would still like to see the Note section to be improved. I like how I get to see all my notes when I view the action. I greatly dislike that the view to my Notes becomes exceedingly small and limited if I want to edit them.

Please also consider a way to directly email messages to existing notes.

Hi Cyrus,

Improving the display and editing of Notes is already in our backlog.

Thanks for the suggestion!

Is there any workaround at the moment allowing easy export of lists so they can be accessed offline? E.g export to excel or word or even pdf. I have some long flights coming up (probably without wifi) so would love to have access to my action lists whilst enjoying a few hours free of interruptions or incoming “stuff”

Hi John,

Sorry, there's no easy way to do that at the moment. The closest in terms of development will be a series PDF reports that we plan to generate in the near future. An off-line app version will come later.
