WP FeedBack PRO 1.4 – Bulk update tasks, a new way to share tasks and a bunch of bug fixes

Vito Peleg WP FeedBack News Leave a Comment

For WP FeedBack PRO update 1.4, we have a feature that has been heavily requested in the past: bulk updating the urgency and status of tasks!

We are super pumped to be releasing this update, as we’ve got also got a bunch of bug fixes and other ways to share pages and tasks.

Bulk Updates

Changing the status or urgency on multiple tasks can be unintuitive, especially if you want to mark all of the work you’ve done for the day as completed!

If you take a peak at your task center, you’ll notice underneath “Tasks Found”, we’ve added “Bulk Action” to make it much easier.

By clicking here, we will see all of the tasks that have been made on the website. You can select each task that needs to have it’s status or urgency changed.

You also have the option to click “Edit All”, this will check every task on the website, you can then bulk update every tasks’ status and/or urgency.

This happens instantly, so there’s no waiting around!

You can also click show details on this screen, showing you a small snap shot of which status and urgency each task is currently set to.

We are all about saving you more time, and this feature will do just that.

A New Way To Share

The next feature we’ve added in 1.4, is the ability to share specific tasks or pages on the front-end of a website where you are using WP FeedBack PRO.

By sending the link without checking “Remove Login Parameter”, when this link is clicked, the WP FeedBack PRO login pop-up will appear (this logo is replaced by your white label settings too!)

Once logged in, it will scroll to exactly where the task is on the page, this can be applied in a few awesome ways:

> You want to discuss a certain point internally with your a team member, instead of telling them where it is, send them a cheeky link!

> You want to direct your client to a specific point on the website.

> If you’re using guest mode for your client to use WP FeedBack PRO, simply click to remove the login parameter and the pop-up will not be triggered.

If instead you’d like to share an entire page, this functionality has also been added in the sidebar.

You can also remove the login parameter from this link too!

Every feature we add is to save you time and increase your efficiency, this is always as the forefront of our minds when developing new features.

Bug Fixes

  • Task bubble placement issue on the WP FeedBack Graphics posts – Astra theme js conflict on frontend
    • Due to the bootstrap css conflict issue on the graphics page, the positioning on the new task bubble was not accurate. This is now fixed.

    • There was a CSS issue on the frontend “x” (appears after we click “+” to add a new comment) which created a comment on the “x” instead of closing the comment mode. This is now fixed.
