Yes, we’ve been silent for quite a long time, you are used to our long pauses nowadays, the sign something big is happening. And something big is actually moving inside Panmind. We’ve spent the last months reading data and charts and looking at how you use Panmind everyday, thinking about new ways to make you happy with our product and improve the way you work in group.
We have spotted a very promising path for Panmind, we are all set up to move there at the steady pace of one feature at time.
Along the way, we will inevitably leave something behind. To move fast one has to drop something, and in software development that somehting is always features. Some choices we made in the past did not pay as expected, they were introduced without much of a study to back them up, a mistake we are not willing to make anymore.
The upcoming for Panmind is huge, so we need to make a lot of room for the new to come! First of all, we are removing the inbox feature. Messages will be delivered to the user email directly, if project email notifications are active, and important messages from Panmind will be delivered by email anyway. The reason of this choice is that we were attempting to replace the need for email with another kind of email, which we think is wrong. The core of Panmind is the work you make on files and discussion around them, there’s no need for another log.
This first change will be applied on Tuesday November 27th during a maintenace operation which will be notified in the next days. Take care of saving what you have, inbox will simply no longer be available on Panmind.
This is the first step towards a series of renovations that will be announced on this blog in the next weeks. For any question feel free to use our Zendesk.
