Gemini v7.0.0 - New UI, Better Navigation and Item Pinning.

03rd July 2020

The Grid and View Item pages have been given a complete overhaul, and we have added a key piece of functionality to make tracking work easier for users.

What's New

Easier Item Tracking - Pinning

The new work tracking functionality is the ability to pin items to a list that is maintained in the top right of the screen, next to your username/profile menu.

  • Items can be pinned by right-click menu of an item on the Grid.
  • Items can be pinned with a new Pin Action icon in the View Item page.
  • Pinned items occupy the position that was previously reserved for the Top n Created Items. This list now contains the top n Recently Updated Items.

Workspace Improvements

Workspace functionality, which used to be in separate locations on the screen, has now moved front and centre to the title bar at the top of the page.
This makes it much easier to read the Workspace description without having to hover over a card that was limited by space restrictions to a maximum of 4 characters.
There are no more slide-out menus on the left or right, giving full width and better scrolling to the grid.
All workspace functionality is reached by the cog on the left of the Workspace dropdown, including Save, Copy, Delete and New Workspace.
"Workspace Details" takes you to the original popup where you can schedule reports, set alerts, and share your workspaces with other users/groups.

Navigation Improvements

All functional areas of Gemini are now in a simple menu, located in the top left. This includes Reports, Project Settings, and the admin section,
which is now "Configure Gemini" and not the slightly less obvious "Customize" hyperlink. This is still only visible to users in the Gemini Administrators group.
Exports to CSV/Excel/HTML are now directly above the grid - it is the data matching the grid filter that is exported on command.
Paging has been simplified and it is no longer possible for users to spike performance by setting huge page sizes,
forcing Gemini to retrieve thousands of rows to meet the request.
Display options, like selecting SLA and/or Sequence zones on the grid, are now on the left of the data filter. It is hopefully much clearer now to distinguish
between filtering by keyword and searching the site, where the former respects project selection and the latter does not.
Icons for sequence zones and for dependent/child items have been picked that make these features of Gemini more obvious.
The drop zone for sequenced items is now animated when an item to be sequenced is selected.
Meta filters for Assigned work, items you are 'Following', and items on which you have Time Logged are now on your user profile menu (top right).

What's Else

    Saucery - The GitHub integration now works with GitHub's WebHooks.
  • tick
    A problem where Item Repeater and Item Copy could create duplicate custom fields has been fixed.
  • tick
    Item Repeater now requires both Start and Due dates on the repeating item for its due date calculation logic to run. It can therefore no longer produce the wrong Due Date.
  • tick
    Item deletion is now logged in the Administrator Log if that app is enabled.
  • tick
    Portal users have been prevented from running reports.
  • tick
    We improved the performance of the Geckoboard app with caching.
