This has been one of the most requested features from customers since we launched the new A360, so today we released support for comments with snapshots and point and object comments. Users can click on a point/object in their design to add a comment, attach snapshots to comments and @mention a project member inside a comment.

New on A360: Comments with Snapshot, Point & Object

Comments with Snapshot, Point & Object

This has been one of the most requested features from customers since we launched the new A360, so today we released support for comments with snapshots and point and object comments. Users can click on a point/object in their design to add a comment, attach snapshots to comments and @mention a project member inside a comment. Clicking on the comment orients the design view to when the comment was made and displays leader lines that point to the area of the design that the comment was targeted for. So, take it for a test drive and let us know what you think.

Other customer requested enhancements/bugs:

  • Each time I switch hubs A360 opens up a new tab, after only a few minutes of use i end up with so many tabs open I can’t find anything .. I would like it to open the hub in the same browser tab
  • Uploading files to Drive from Team hub fails
  • Pages to be renamed “Wiki pages” so that this feature is discoverable and recognizable when I transition to the new UI
  • When I select multiple files, I shouldn’t be able to pick options that only apply to one file

 

We hope you like the update and as usual keep the feedback coming.
