Today we released another major version of Week Plan.
Classic calendar view
As the founder of Week Plan, I have been asked many times over the last 8 years to have a classic calendar view (like how Outlook or Google Calendar shows their events based on their start and end time).
I have resisted this for a long time because I felt that the classic calendar way of displaying information wasted a lot of screen space. (Imagine having an event at 8am and one at 8pm… lots of whitespace in between).
But this year, we are trying to make the user experience smoother for new users. And people are used to the classic calendar view. We feel that it will help new users focus their learning on other important aspects of Week Plan (like the High Impact Tasks) rather than learning how to use the week view.
Also it makes scheduling a lot easier since you can simply drop the task in the right time straight away.
Better Objectives page
We have reworked the Objectives page to accomplish the following goals:
- Easier to see the overall status of all objectives
- Easier to update the key results
- Easier on the eye
Improved new user experience
We have reworked the account registration flow to first talk about the roles and the high impact tasks, and then only ask the user to create an account.
We believe it will help us show Week Plan’s value and encourage more people to sign up.
Additionally, we have added a tutorial video to help users with understanding what Week Plan is about.
We have rewritten the Journal from scratch, to make it more useful. You can see what you have achieved this week, what other people in your team have accomplish, and you can use the Journal as a personal diary (or a team diary) to write down what you have learned this week.
As part of this release, we have also fixed a lot of bugs, improved the toolbar that appears when you click on a task, introduced a new global add button to make adding a new task (or team, or objective, or role, etc…) easier.
We feel these changes make Week Plan a lot more user friendly, don’t you think?
Some of the things we would like to work on:
- Allow subtasks to repeat in a repeating task.
- Launch a new dedicated OKR software
- Improve the mobile experience
As usual, please let us know what you think, we read all the comments :)
