Pagico just got a whole lot better with the new August 2023 Update! With this release, the process to create content is much more streamlined, and you can easily embed new data objects, such as headings, web links, and maps. Read on to learn more.
Reminder: This update is free to users with an active software update coverage. If your software update coverage has expired, your license may not be able to activate this update. You can lookup your license and its software update coverage here.
New Data Objects
Ever wanted to manage your project and contact content better? Now you can, with the new headings, web links and maps! Just look at how organized this trip plan is:
The use of headings, web bookmarks and embedded maps makes it easy to create (and most importantly, follow) plans.
There are three levels of headings available for you to choose from, with heading level 1 being the largest in font size, and level 3 being the smallest.
Please note that these custom headings are not visible if your project or contact uses the By-Type display mode, which groups data objects by type.
You can now insert links as web bookmarks, which are rendered as cards. While you could certainly insert hyperlinks into links and notes in the past, web bookmarks are much bigger in their footprint and therefore significantly more visible, making them perfect for important links, such as zoom meeting links, or folders stored on a cloud-based storage service, etc.
With the embedded maps object, Pagico now allows you to embed Google Maps right into your projects or contacts. To use this feature, simply choose the Map option and enter a location name, address, or paste in a Google Maps link.
The map view’s dimensions can be adjusted by dragging and dropping the bottom or right side of the map object, like this:
Of course, you can also right-click on the map object and choose a desired layout width from the popup menu.
One thing to know about the embedded map views is that this feature requires an active internet connection to function. Google does not allow the caching of maps for offline use (at least for now), so you will not be able to see the map view if your computer is offline.
Streamlined Content Creation Experience
With the addition of three new data object options, the content creation process needed an overhaul as well. So we redesigned the add-new menu mechanism so that it not only lets you find the desired option faster, but also lets you create new content right off the bat.
This process of quick content creation is enabled for other data objects, too. For example, here’s how to start a new list really quickly:
New Content Ordering Default : Manual
Previously, the default content ordering mode is “By Type”. If you created a new project or contact, the content would be in the By Type display mode where lists, notes and files are grouped under their own headings respectively. With the newly introduced Headings feature, you can create headings based on your actual needs. Therefore, anticipating a reduction in the need of the By-Type display mode, the new default content ordering mode will be Manual mode, where you can arrange content in any sequence you like. If you still prefer the By-Type mode, you can certainly change the display mode as you wish. The display mode is remembered within the project (or contact), so you can certainly use the By-Type mode in certain projects, and the Manual mode in others.
Bulk List Item Move
You can now multi-select list items and move them in bulk! Simply select and drag. It’s that simple! This makes it much easier to move tasks and subtasks all together.
There are many other improvements in this release as well:
- Comments are now much more visible
- Fixed an issue where the scrolling date numbers row in the timeline views may disappear in certain cases
- Fixed an issue with the team member content filter algorithm
- Fixed an issue where files in the public share version may not be accessible in certain cases
- Fixed various other minor issues
