I’ve just added a new piece of functionality – the Action Bar is now in the Reply Box.
The most likely time that you’ll mark something as Waiting On, or declare something as finished (removing all statuses/deadlines), is when you’ve sent an email. Therefore we put the Action Bar nearby to both reduce the use of the mouse, and to act as a little visual reminder.
(You may have noticed it actually appeared over the weekend, but with visual glitches – sorry about that, I had actually only intended it to go to beta testers at that point!).
The other major fix was that some of you noticed that Action/Waiting On was being “auto-assigned”, starting on Monday. (If you’re geekily interested… In actual fact, it wasn’t being auto-assigned, it was just that when you clicked an email in the Inbox [mouse button down], the screen instantly changes to view the conversation, and a few milliseconds later you release mouse button [mouse button up], but inadvertently over one of the Status buttons – which triggered ActiveInbox to apply the status.)
You may also have noticed we have a new help button on the Action Bar in conversations, to give new users a really simple way to learn how ActiveInbox works.
In other news, I also:
* Fixed the “Send & Archive” button when you reply. It had stopped working over the weekend.
* Removed the ‘Send EOM’ button, as it’s universally disliked.
* Added support up until Firefox 22
* Increased the robustness of adding the Action Bar into the new Compose box (occasionally it would fail to be added)
