Earlier this year, we set to work on a long awaited refresh of our Teams and Community products. This update has been a long time coming and we’re really excited to start sharing what we’ve been working on.
Change can be a little disorientating and when it comes to operational tools for emergency responders and nobody wants to see too many changes enacted at once. For this reasons, we decided early on that the refresh would be a two-stage undertaking.
Phase One, dubbed ‘Mercury’ will be launched in May or early June and focusses on the Dashboard end of the applications. Basically anything that is part and parcel of working with contacts, lists or sending an actual notification will be updated. Work on Phase Two, or ‘Gemini’ will begin this summer and will target the administrative side of the application. Expect roll out in the fall of 2018.
While we’ve made every efforts to preserve the simplicity that has dominated our development approach to date, this refresh will bring some needed changes and expanded features. With this in mind, we’ll be sharing a number of blog posts that outline these changes and the thinking behind them. This way, everyone will have a chance to see what’s coming before the updates arrive in their accounts.
We can’t wait to show you what we’ve been up to. Thanks for the ongoing support and for the constant feedback and ideas.
