Planio Support (english): CRM & Helpdesk renamed to Planio Help Desk

UI Improvement; API Change
Added by Jan Schulz-Hofen over 4 years ago

We have renamed our previously called Pro Feature CRM & Helpdesk to Planio Help Desk in order to call things by their proper names.

We introduced Planio Help Desk back in 2012 – that's over 5 years ago! Since then, it has indeed been about Customer Relationship Management, but it always used to focus on the supporting aspect of it which is now more commonly referred to as help desk.

Furthermore, the term CRM is mostly used when people talk about sales tools now – which Planio is definitely not. That's why we thought it would be more consistent to drop the CRM name and focus only on Help Desk instead.

This change only affects the user interface and one particular place in the Planio API – when you fetch issues now using the /issues endpoint, you'll get the reply token necessary for tracking pages and for sending email updates as a value to the reply_token key (instead of crm_reply_token). The old key will remain in addition to the new one until July 1st, 2017 after that, it will be removed from the API.

Update: While we were at it, we also gave the previous email drop box feature a proper name and are calling it Planio Inbox now. This means that your project inbox addresses are now following the schema inbox+account+project+code@plan.io, but the old addresses starting with dropbox+... will of course continue to work.

Planio Support (english): Edit Help Desk Templates right from the FAQ Section

UI Improvement
Added by Jan Schulz-Hofen over 4 years ago

You've been able to use your Help Desk Templates as questions within your project's own FAQ section for quite some time now. Until now, you always had to navigate to Settings within your project to edit your templates, though.

Edit links within FAQ Section

You'll now find a small Edit icon on the right side next to each FAQ item which allows you to quickly edit the corresponding Help Desk Template directly.

Planio Support (english): Colorful default user avatars (1 comment)

UI Improvement
Added by Felix Gliesche almost 5 years ago

As you surely know, you can use Gravatars to personalize your user icon at Planio. Simply sign up at Gravatar, upload your picture and Planio will automatically pick it up.

Until now though, users who didn't use a Gravatar were displayed as a rather sad and grey boring silhouette.

Colorful default user avatars

We've changed this today by adding colorful default avatars to Planio. They're active in all accounts already. If you've used a different default before, you can enable them via AdministrationSettingsDisplay.

Planio Support (english): Recently used items and Bookmarks on Home Page

New Feature
Added by Jan Schulz-Hofen almost 5 years ago

There's this one issue you've been coming back to over and over. Or this wiki page you're accessing frequently. Yet, you cannot remember their ID or URL and finding them via the Projects dropdown works, but always takes a little too long to be really convenient.

Sounds familiar? Then our redesigned Planio home page is for you. It now contains bookmarks of your most recently accessed items ordered by access frequency over the last week. We hope this feature will help you get back to your most important items in Planio more quickly and more conveniently.

Recently used items and Bookmarks on Home Page

You can also pin certain items to the home page by clicking on the star icon.

Planio Support (english): Create Online Contact Forms on your Website with Planio

API Improvement
Added by Thomas Carney about 5 years ago

Ever wondered how we at Planio handle online contact form requests via our Contact Us page? Using Planio, of course. And now you can, too!

Create Online Contact Forms on your Website with Planio

We've just published a new endpoint to our API that can be used as a target for simple HTML web forms. Using this technique, you'll be able to capture your customer's requests or inquiries directly as issues in Planio.

Learn all about it in our Set Up Contact Forms with Planio guide.

Planio Support (english): Planio Accounts now also available via planio.net Subdomain

Infrastructure Improvement
Added by Holger Just about 5 years ago

During the recent outage of the .IO top level domain name servers, we had quickly provided a workaround making all Planio accounts available via youraccount.planio.net in addition to the well-known youraccount.plan.io addresses.

Planio Accounts now also available via planio.net Subdomain

This interim workaround has now become a permanent alternative for all users who wish to use planio.net instead of plan.io. Feel free to use either domain for your Planio account going forward.

Planio Support (english): Support for GMail Actions and Schema.org Markup

Integrations
Added by Jan Schulz-Hofen about 5 years ago

Sometimes, it's hard to tell critical updates from not so important email. That's why emails coming from Planio's issue tracking now contain Schema.org Actions. On GMail, they will render as little buttons that will open the right Planio issue directly from your inbox.

Support for GMail actions and schema.org Markup

Schema.org is a community standardization effort that goes beyond email and GMail and we hope to see more email clients support those usability enhancements soon.

As part of this change, we're now sending all Planio emails from the single email address notifications@plan.io. This will of course not impact your ability to update issues in Planio via email simply by hitting the "Reply" button in your email client.

Planioを紹介する日本語の資料をSlideShareで公開しました。通常のRedmineに対して改良されている点を中心に紹介しています。

ドイツ発・Redmineをベースにしたプロジェクト管理SaaS 「Planio」でチーム開発とコラボレーション

この資料は、2016年9月24日に開催された オープンソースカンファレンス2016 Shimane での弊社の金築によるプレゼンテーションで使ったものです。Planioのことを対面で皆さんにご説明したのはこれが初めてでした。オープンソースカンファレンスの様子はファーエンドテクノロジーの ブログ でも報告しています。

今後、日本でよりたくさんの方々にPlanioを知っていただくために、積極的にプレゼンテーションの機会を確保していくつもりです。ぜひ、どこかでお会いできればと思います。

ドイツ発・Redmineベースのプロジェクト管理SaaS「Planio」が日本進出 ファーエンドテクノロジーがプロモーションとサポートを受託

PlanioはオープンソースソフトウェアのRedmineがベースのプロジェクト管理のためのクラウドサービスです。普通のRedmineとの違いを一言で言うと、画面デザインが美しくなり、またチャットやカンバンなど大幅な機能強化が行われたRedmineをクラウド上で提供しているサービスです。サービス提供元のPlanio GmbHはオープンソースのRedmine自体への貢献活動も積極的に行っています。例えば、最近のRedmineに実装された新機能のうち スマートフォン対応の画面オブジェクト追加のための「+」ボタンセキュリティ上重要な変更のメール通知 などはPlanioで実装された機能がパッチとして切り出されRedmineに提供したものです。

オープンソースコミュニティへの貢献を強く意識している素晴らしいサービスを日本にも届けるために、このたび弊社はPlanioと提携し、日本でのプロモーションとサポートを実施していくこととしました。これからどうぞよろしくお願いします。

Planio Support (english): HTTPS and anonymous access for hosted Git repositories

Repository Improvement
Added by Holger Just about 5 years ago

Planio's hosted Git repositories have always been available via SSH using public/private key pairs which works great for regular repository committers. For people who only wish to access a Git repository from time to time or who need anonymous access to a repository, we now also offer access via HTTPS using regular Planio usernames and passwords.

HTTPS and anonymous access for hosted Git repositories

And yes, that also means that you can now make your hosted Git repositories publicly available for anyone to clone – which is great for Open Source projects. If that's interesting to you, have a look at our tutorial guide about public projects to learn how to do that.
