Team Zeus Development Roadmap – November 2016

It was with great joy and excitement that we released the latest version of Team Zeus last month, which we believe helps you and your colleagues to further enhance your productivity. Because we always strive to make the platform as user-friendly as possible, we’ve made further improvements to the application since the launch. Below is our latest roadmap that lists all of the modifications that have been made so far:

Team Zeus Version 2016 Chat Update


Creation of a conversation: explicit confirmation when a conversation is sent to all users in the company.
User detail: remove groups’ x button visible only for admins.
Push notifications: new items in the Inbox are sent only when offline or after an hour of inactivity on desktop. We will allow further configuration for mobile notifications in future.
Links: any links in messages will now open in a new tab by default.
Last activity: when a user is online, his last activity (in a tab of the desktop version) is shown on his profile and in message sender in chat. Last activity is updated every 1-3 minutes on browser/tab activity.
Email import: fixed formatting of imported messages – we have completely disabled markdown on imported messages, so it does not conflict with source formatting.
Markdown: fixed both links and embedded images
Message attachments: these are now displayed in a ‘responsive’ grid next to each other for higher resolutions.
The “create a conversation” window: navigate through the different sections of the new conversation’s window by pressing the ‘tab’ key on your keyboard.
Update mechanism for the desktop version: we have added a system that detects if someone is running an old version (typically when they keep Team Zeus on after leaving work). This creates a persistent notifications with some explanation and a ‘Reload’ link.
Group member dialog box: group members and conversation recipients are now visible at the top, when in a group or conversation. New members can be added from this dialog box as well.
Inbox: we removed the three-dot context menu from the Inbox and replaced it with icons visible when an “INBOX or LATER” item is focused.
Inbox: archived conversations were moved to the bottom of the inbox, with indication that a conversation is archived.
Keyboard shortcuts: the shortcut key a was added to archive a conversation.
Improved user interface: group / conversation recipients with ‘add members’ is now in a fixed position, removing the need to scroll through a list to add a member.
Action icons in the Inbox (Inbox, Later, Mark As Read): these are now shown as separate icons without the need to focus on the icon
Conversation addressing: copying and pasting a link into a conversation (from browser URL bar or by copying the ID from the conversation settings) will create a ‘Team Zeus’ formatted link in a conversation with the ID number of the conversation combined with its name.
Auto-archiving of inactive conversations: by default, if there is no activity in a conversation for the last 14 days, it’s automatically archived.
Auto-archiving of a group: a group can be auto-archived from the group settings.
Mac OSX: Various fixes for Safari.
Formatting of messages: code blocks can be made by preceding the code with three back-ticks: ```.

Team Zeus Version 2016 Later Update


Attachments: indication that a message in the “Later” section has attachments.
Announcement: when an announcement is in your “Later” section and you mark it as read, it is automatically removed from the list of messages. There will be notifications with ‘undo later’ in the next release after actions are completed that will automatically remove an item from the “Later” section (replying to a message, mark as read in announcements).

Team Zeus Version 2016 Announcement Update


“Mark as Read” button: this button was moved to the toolbar to be consistent with other user interface elements. The button does not appear again after marking an announcement as read.
