October 2022

  • Updated

Features are released for general availability (GA) to Cutting Edge customers with stringent performance and SLA criteria, and with in-app tutorials and documentation. During the Cutting Edge period of 1 to 6 weeks, customers can provide feedback that helps to shape the “final state” for Standard customer GA.

Board view

Released: Cutting Edge, 10/13/2022

The Board view (Kanban V2) got major improvements in both form and function. The new Board view lets us make future improvements much more easily and efficiently. 

  • Improvements

    • UI changes

    • Colored fields badges

    • Removed all drag and drop restrictions that were there before

    • More accurate success and failure messaging for drag and drop

    • Click on any part of the card to bring up the detailed pop-over

  • Feature additions

    • Task Ordering – vertical drag and drop of task cards to set priority in task view on the instance level; this is not available for step views.

    • Display Options – choose which meta data the user wants to see on the cards

    • Collapsible Columns – declutter the board by collapsing individual columns in any view

    • Create tasks in-line within the task view with status and campaign columns

    • Drag and drop columns in the same view to organize

    • Radio Buttons and Single Select Fields for Column and Group by options.

This greatly improves the user experience and interaction with task management because it reduces the effort of manually updating the metadata of individual tasks for our users. It lets us build a better board experience by getting closer to a product-market fit.

Adobe Creative Cloud (XD)

Released: 10/19/2022

Bringing marketers and creatives together shouldn't require the use of a new tool and we didn't want to leave XD out in the cold. Our Adobe Creative Cloud plugin removes the barriers between these teams whilst encouraging collaboration throughout the production of creative assets, without the need of additional training or tools.

Request, review and give feedback on the production of creative assets to your Adobe XD users directly from a Welcome Task. Welcome users can stay in Welcome and Adobe users can stay in Adobe. Full, end-to-end task management between Welcome and Adobe Creative Cloud.

 (Now supporting Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Premiere Pro and XD)

Welcome Users:

  • Send a request to Adobe Creative Cloud users

  • Proof & Annotate received files

  • Request updates from the Adobe user

  • Use the Auto-created workflow "Creative Cloud Asset Request" or add a single external step to your existing workflows

  • Use approved assets within your publishing processes across websites, social and other downstream platforms or channels

Adobe Users:

  • Receive requests directly within Creative Cloud apps

  • Manage assignments and statuses

  • Upload multiple creative assets and updated versions to the Welcome Task directly from CC

  • Receive access to annotated feedback and Task Brief details
