Pagico October 2022 Update (UPDATEDx2)

Greetings everyone! Today we are excited to announce the October 2022 Update for Pagico. In this release, we are introducing a redesigned day planning view “The Today View”, along with a slew of improvements. With these enhancements, getting work done in Pagico is guaranteed to be more pleasant than ever.

The Redesigned Day Planning View

Personalizing the new Today view

The Today view has been completely redesigned to let you not only focus on the current day, but also do so in an enjoyable environment.

You can select from a collection of awesome backgrounds, or supply your own! Pagico will automatically detect the image’s brightness and render your content in the correct shade.

With personalized background, your database lock screen will also look more awesome than ever.

Besides the personalizable background, the redesigned Today view also brings a lot of additional super powers! For instance, the order of your custom-arranged tasks for the next day will be preserved when you get there, making it easy to do task pre-plannings. In addition, your Today/Tomorrow task arrangements are synced across your computers automatically over the cloud.

UI Simplification

Many parts of the Pagico UI has been simplified to give you more space, more of your content, and less unnecessary complexity. For example, the create-new actions and template actions on the Dashboard have been removed, so you’ll have more space for your pinned items. To access the create-new and template actions, simply use the improved universal add-new button, like this:

The add-new button is more powerful and easier to use, especially when the sidebar is minimized.

Other Minor Improvements

  • New in r20221006: You can now drag to adjust the width of the Today view task list area
  • New in r20221005: Fixed an issue where project/contact labels in the Today view may be rendered incorrectly in some cases
  • New in r20221005: Fixed an issue where the user’s accent color may not show through as intended when no backdrop image is selected
  • New in r20221005: Increased the width of the task list in the Today view for better usability
  • New in r20221003: Fixed an issue with the selection of your own backdrop images
  • Next scheduled task is now rendered on the database lock screen (only visible if database password is set)
  • Improved the table editing experience in notes
  • Added Myself to the task assignment submenu
  • Timeline UI improvements
  • Fixed an issue with the rendering of multiple tags
  • Fixed an issue where Pagico may freeze in certain cases
  • All texts pasted into list items are automatically stripped of formatting

Pagico Mobile 7.5 for iOS and Android

Greetings everyone! Today we are excited to announce the release of Pagico Mobile v7.5 for iOS and Android. Want to get it right away? Just head to the AppStore and download! It’s a free download for all Pagico users. But please read on to learn all about this new release!

UPDATE on August 11: Pagico Mobile 7.5 is now available for both iOS and Android. Look for it on the iOS AppStore or Google PlayStore.

Overhauled Data Sync

Pagico Mobile 7.5 features an improved data sync engine, which is better all around: it is faster, more informative, and more instant.

Faster Sync

We analyzed the data sync pattern from server-side logs and introduced newer and faster ways to upload and download changes. Instead of the same 6-stage data sync cycle for all sync sessions, simple changes made in the iOS app take only 1 step to complete, reducing the average sync session duration from 10 seconds to just 2 seconds. For retrieving changes made on your desktop app, the mobile app may also take advantage of a newer sync process that completes in just 1 step, reducing the average sync session duration from 10 – 30 seconds down to just 2-3 seconds.

For larger sync sessions, such as the one to download all your data when you first install (or reinstall) Pagico Mobile, we designed a new data sync method to dramatically cut down the time needed for a complete sync. Previously Pagico Mobile would sync 200 items at a time (in order to keep the sync session time down at a reasonable amount) and continuously sync until everything is up to date. But if your Personal Cloud has thousands of items (normal for most users), it could potentially take forever to fully sync. With our newly implemented sync method, Pagico Mobile can grab everything (yes, everything) in one shot and within just a few minutes. We did tests with an 8,000-item Personal Cloud and the mobile app completed syncing in under 5 minutes.

More Informative

In certain cases, there are just more data to sync. For example, when installing (or reinstalling) Pagico on your mobile device, or when you are part of multiple teams in addition to your Inbox and Personal Cloud. Pagico Mobile 7.5 features a new sync status panel that gives you more information about the sync cycles so you know what is happening under the hood. This panel is especially helpful when larger amounts of data is involved, and it takes the guess work out of the equation.

More Instant

Previously Pagico Mobile has a sync delay that aims to group multiple changes in each sync cycle. With Pagico Mobile 7.5, we reduced this delay to a minimum so all changes would trigger instantaneous sync cycles. On the one hand, it may consume a bit more energy (both on your device and on our servers), but the benefit is that sync is triggered much faster, and you’ll see the changes on your desktop much sooner than before. The same thing applies to downstream changes, too. If changes are detected when Pagico Mobile is active, it’ll pull the changes and render the new data as soon as possible. This reduction in sync delay is also critically important for mobile device users, as you can now make some changes (such as marking off a task), let Pagico sync right away, then immediately lock your screen (or switch to another app).

Dark Mode Support

You asked, and we listened! Pagico Mobile now automatically renders its UI based on the light/dark mode of your iOS system.

Custom List Sorting

List sorting modes are respected. You can sort lists by title (alphabetically), due date, or category. The list sorting option is also saved and respected on the desktop side; so you will always get the same list presentation.

More to Come

There are a lot more to come for the mobile app! We are working on bringing you an experience consistent with the desktop app. Multi-column data display, collections, and a lot more are all in the pipeline. Please stay tuned and do let us know what your thoughts are. We’ll always be listening.

Last but not least – thank you for your patience. We know you’ve been waiting for a solid mobile app update for a while now, and we are working hard to deliver a better mobile experience as soon as we can.

Pagico 10 August Update (Updated)

Greetings everyone! Today we are excited to release Pagico 10 (rev. 20220817). This release brings a number of under-the-hood improvements, with the most notable being an enhanced data sync process. Here’s the gist: Pagico should now complete data sync cycles much faster than before, especially in complex teams. Coupled with the newly released Pagico Mobile 7.5, your data sync experience should be much better than before.

Changes

  • New in r20220817: Easier “Quick Add” action for list items and notes
  • New in r20220817: Fixed an issue where notes couldn’t be archived in some cases
  • New in r20220817: The launch screen now also supports dark mode (when needed)
  • New “Quick CatchUp” data sync method should complete data sync cycles much faster than before
  • Moving an item out of the trash to a selected container will now work as expected
  • Fixed some issues with moving lists and list items
  • Fixed an issue where assigning categories to individual tasks may set the category for the whole list
  • Fixed a project list rendering issue when certain tags are involved

New: Quick Add

It’s now easier than ever to create follow-up tasks, or import file attachments to tasks and notes. Need to expand a task into a full-blown project, or add a file to a task? It now takes just a few clicks.

Update for Ubuntu Users

We are aware of the fact that Pagico 10 isn’t compatible with Ubuntu 22.04 at the moment. Due to the breaking changes introduced in this newer OS, we may have to offer Pagico builds for 21.xx and 22.xx users separately, which could be confusing and inconvenient. We are working to solve this issue and hopefully we’ll be able to provide one build for all Ubuntu users. We’ll keep you posted.

Getting the Update

Please head over to the Downloads section to grab this update. This update is free for all Pagico users with a valid service plan (Personal Premium or team plans).

Pagico 10 June Update: Improved Kanban Board and Better Print

This month, we focused primarily on improving the user experience with the recently-introduced Kanban project browser. Now you can create new project categories right in the Kanban board with just a few clicks. We also improved the printing capability slightly, so when you’re printing the dashboard calendar or timeline, the print view will no longer include the Pinned Items and Quick Actions section.

The June release also included a few under-the-hood bug fixes to improve the overall stability of Pagico, including:

  • Fixed an issue where bulk actions on list items may not be rendered correctly even though the changes are indeed saved
  • Adjusted the default value for the option Auto-Archive for Tasks to Off to reduce confusion (note: this only affects new users)
  • The following are new on June 21:
  • Fixed an issue where the email property in contacts may not be rendered as expected in some cases
  • Fixed an issue where certain hyper links couldn’t be opened by clicking in some cases
  • Fixed an issue where individual tasks may appear to be listed under a different list in timeline views
  • Fixed an issue where renaming a contact may not cause the tab bar to re-render with the new name
  • Added week numbers to the timeline view

Pagico 10 May Update: Metadata for Projects and More!

Greetings everyone! We are excited to announce the 2022 May update of Pagico 10. In this version, we implemented a new metadata panel for both projects, unified the sidebar design across projects and contacts, and a slew of feature improvements that enhance your user experience.

Metadata for Projects

You can now put in metadata for projects in the form of key-value pairs. For instance, for a home renovation project, you can define the following properties:

Budget: $20,000
Contractor: John Smith
Cell: 123-4567890

You can use any type key that makes sense to you, and Pagico will let you save any single-line text value for the metadata properties.

Browse Projects by Metadata

Entering information is just one part of the equation. Once you have metadata properties configured, you can enable the “Auto-Grouping” feature on keys of interest, so Pagico can sort your projects based on the values of these keys.

Once a key has the Auto-Grouping is enabled, the key will become available under the Projects section, like this:

Unified Experience

Since not every project would involve metadata properties, the metadata panel can be collapsed to save space. This new metadata panel design is also applied to contacts, so you’ll have a consistent user experience no matter if you’re working with projects or contacts.

Improved Kanban Project Browser

The kanban project browser also received some improvements, too! You can now fold categories to so you can see more categories while saving space.

Use the new kanban project browser in Pagico 10 to manage your projects and workflow efficiently

Other User Experience Improvements

  • You can now add projects (or contacts) to collections using the container-level menu command
  • The Copy-to/Move-to menu command now shows both starred items and recent items as destination shortcuts
  • Better blank-state onboarding designs

Availability

The Pagico 10 May Update is a free update to all with an active software update coverage. If your Pagico service has already expired, you can try the new version using the Free Trial option, or purchase a service plan if you like to keep the update (and to support the continuous development of Pagico).

Pagico 10 is compatible with the following platforms:

  • macOS 10.12 – macOS 12 Monterey, with native Intel and M1 support
  • Windows 7 or later, both 32-bit and 64-bit
  • Ubuntu 19.04 or later*, 64-bit only.
    • * Not compatible with Ubuntu 22.04 yet. We are working on this.

You can download the update from our Downloads section.
