It’s been a while since I’ve had my head in code (most of this year in fact!) – Tom & Adhip have had the reigns for mobile work and a few major new features in the pipeline. But I decided to have a littel dabble…
See Notes & Checklist where you most need them
I’ve moved the Notes & Checklist to be between the last message, and the Reply box. (They’re also still on the Action Bar, so available at all times).
We felt this was more useful for two reasons:
- You’re most likely to want to update the checklist/notes after reading the latest message
- You’re most likely to need the checklist/notes while writing a reply.
(If you don’t agree, this is controllable in the Preferences!).
Go distraction free by hiding the Inbox
If you’d like a temporary break from incoming emails, you can now ‘collapse’ the inbox, using the triangle pictured. This will also hide the Inbox count in the sidebar – so you’re competeley unaware of what’s happening in there 🙂
Just a few little clean ups
I made a few tweaks to visually improve the Reply box, most noticeably putting ‘Send Later’ next to ‘Send’, so that ‘Waiting On’ is very easy to reach.
In Other News
Having had the great misfortune (read: Andy’s big strategic mistake) of having to discontinue our first mobile attempt, we’ve reached a major milestone: the new one, where we’ve built the entire email client from scratch, has just entered the earliest stage of beta. 60 people so far 🙂
