Browser crash on you? Session timeout? Navigate to another tab, card, or page…and lose all your changes?!? Yes, we’ve been there before, too. But no longer! Now Mingle knows when you have unsaved changes and asks if you want to recover them.
A quick note: Mingle can only recover changes from a single browser. So if, let’s say, Chrome crashes and you reopen Mingle with Firefox, your changes will be lost. If, however, you reopen your session in Chrome, you’re safe. And remember, while we now recover unsaved changes, make sure to save them to keep them for good :)
Murmurs are Mingle’s way for your team to communicate, from team lunches to specific card commits. Needless to say, they’re super important. To make sure everyone on your team is in the know and up-to-date, we’ve made the following improvements:
Email notifications when you murmur @someone: Now you get an email when you’re murmured at so you don’t miss a beat. Just @ the team member you’re murmuring with and they’ll get an email. Whether outside the office or simply not in Mingle at the moment, these notifications help make sure you don’t miss what’s going on with your team.
Autocomplete @teammate: To help you murmur with your team, Mingle will autocomplete the name of the team member you’re murmuring at, saving you time and making sure there are no typos :) Just select the name you’re looking for as soon as it appears and you’re set. They’ll receive an email as soon as you’ve murmured your message.
@team and @group: Sometimes you need to talk with your entire team or specific groups in your project (devs or QAs, for example). So we’ve made team a default group you can murmur to. When you murmur @team, everyone on your team receives an email. And if you’ve defined groups in your project, Mingle will automatically know so you can murmur a specific message to a single group, let’s say @devs…and everyone in your dev group will know!
Much more soon, so keep your eyes open. And let us know what you think! We’re always looking for ways to make Mingle better for you.
