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.

April Update: Kanban-Style Boards and Custom Icons

Greetings! As you know, we continuously develop Pagico to include new features and bug fixes. For April of 2022, we have exciting new features to further boost your productivity:

Kanban-Style Project Browser

We created a Kanban-style project browser that allows you to easily see projects by categories, and set categories via drag-and-drop. This browser can be accessed by clicking on the “Projects” item from the sidebar. What’s also new here, is that this view will now only show you the most recent 30 projects and their categories.

With this project browser, it makes it easy to oversee projects across workflow phases, such as “Active”, “Completed”, and perhaps “Behind”. Then, you can see your projects listed under the respective “bins”, and move them across bins by simply drag and drop.

To maximize flexibility, the kanban-style project browser is not only available for you to browse all your projects, but also in collections and teams! This makes it easier for you to group multiple projects together into “mega” projects and use the kanban browser to manage projects in that scope.

Custom Project Icons

Previously, all projects are treated the same — they all have the same “document” icon. With this newer version, you get to select new icons for your projects!

Simply go to a project, then click on the “Icon” button to make your selection.

Under-the-hood Improvements

  • New in r20220416: Fixed an issue where the category assignment for list items may not save as expected in certain cases
  • New in r20220416: Fixed an issue where inline links may be rendered repeatedly on certain systems
  • Fixed an issue where the content list view in Teams may repeatedly refresh
  • Fixed an issue where the Teams -> Activity Feed may render changes incorrectly
  • Fixed an issue where renaming projects may not trigger the correct cache update process
  • Fixed an issue here project category assignments could not be cleared in certain cases
  • Fixed an issue where the collections sidebar list may not refresh as expected when new collections are added
  • Fixed an issue where moving a list some times may trigger the “unable to convert to plaintext” error
  • Fixed an issue where multiple inline links in the same data object may cause rendering issues
  • Fixed an issue where an at-capacity team may prevent data sync even if the sync capacity has been increased
  • Fixed an issue where the date labels for task groups on timeline views may be rendered incorrectly
  • Other minor UI issues

New: Enhanced Smart Collection Rendering (Updated)

Updated on March 1, 2022: Pagico 10 r20220301 has just been released to address a list item saving issue that was introduced in the r20220229 build. All users currently on the r20220229 build are highly recommended to update to the newer version to avoid data loss.

Smart collection users rejoice! Today we pushed out a new release that includes an enhanced rendering of lists and list items in smart collections.

Starting from the new Pagico 10 r20220218, matching lists are now rendered with a preview stat section on the right, with list items rendered in a nested fashion. This makes it easy for you to see the overall completion status of entire lists, as well as individual ones.

The list completion status display

We’ve also improved the way smart search works. Previously, all list items in a list whose title matched search criteria will be returned as individual items. This may not be the wanted result as your search results contained many items that are seemingly not related to your search parameter. So from now on, lists with titles matching the search criteria will be only returned as lists. This ensures the relevancy of the search results. Coupled with the nested display of list items for those matching lists, the smart collections should produce much more usable results than before, and we hope you like it as much as we do!

Thank you all again for choosing Pagico and providing feedback! We appreciate it very much.

Other Changes

  • New in r20220229: Fixed several issues that may cause data rendering issues if certain control characters are incorrectly included in task titles or descriptions
  • Fixed an issue where the sidebar widgets some times may be rendered as blank
  • Fixed an issue where the colors of certain tabs may be rendered incorrectly
  • Fixed an issue in the ability to import templates and packages in Pagico on Windows

February Update: Email-to-Task, New Day Planner, and More!

Greetings everyone! Today we are excited to announce the availability the 2022 February Update of Pagico 10! In this version, we are packing lots of new features and capabilities that are guaranteed to enhance your project/task management experience and overall productivity.

New: Email-to-Task

The new Email-to-Task feature in Pagico 10

Ever wanted to turn emails into tasks? Now you can! Just turn on this feature in the Preferences section, and you’re set. Simply send (or forward) emails to your assigned email address, and the messages will be turned into tasks automatically. Even better — the email subject line will also be scanned for dates and times, so your tasks will carry the correct date and time stamps automatically. For more information on this feature, click here.

Improved: Day Planning View

The Today view now has a new trick in its sleeve: an hourly day-planning view.

The new hourly calendar for the Today view in Pagico 10

The original list view is still there, and you can easily toggle between the two views at any time. Just pick you favorite view and enjoy the productivity boost!

Improved: Data Sync

We also continuously improved the data sync algorithm for better efficiency and reliability. After weeks of development and testing, we’ve now improved the data sync efficiency and reliability, so the data sync cycles on your end should finish much faster than before, and much more reliably too. But we are not done — we still have more to do to make data sync faster than ever. By next month, we should be able to drastically reduce the average data sync time from the current (around 8 seconds) to below 3 seconds, which should significantly improve the single user and teamwork experience.

Easier Rescheduling

Task management is easier when you can effortlessly schedule and reschedule. Have a task but need to shift its due date? Now you can do this with just a few clicks!

Better Tab Management, List Edit Experience, and More!

Greetings everyone! Today we’re excited to release Pagico 10 Update 11 (rev 20220204), which brings improved tab management and list editing experience. It also brings a few bug fixes to make things work better all around.

Better Tab Management

You can now right-click an item in the tabs bar and easily clear up your tabs, or move desired tabs to the front with a single click.

Better List Editing Experience

Pagico 10: Better list writing experience lets you insert list items wherever you need.

Remember you could right-click on an existing list item and insert new list items above or below it? Now you can insert new list items with a keyboard shortcut Cmd + Enter. To use this feature, just select an existing list item, then Cmd + Enter (or Ctrl + Enter if you’re on Windows or Linux). When you use the DELETE key to delete a list item, the previous (or next) list item will automatically selected, making keyboard actions that much easier when comes to list editing.
