Hello friends of Balsamiq!
We just updated myBalsamiq with a new release, focussed on smoothing over one of the roughest edges of the application, the managing of staff and project members.
We also fixed some bugs and made some improvements in Mockups itself.
We made it a lot easier to manage your staff members. Look at the new menu for a staffer:
As a site owner, clicking on "Edit User Info" now shows a pop-up which lets you complete or edit your staffer's info:
You'll get similar pop-ups if you click on "Change Password" or "Change Photo".
If instead you click on "Manage Project Membership", you'll get a pop-up like this one:
Just select the projects a certain staffer should belong to, "Save Changes" and voila'! This should save you a bunch of time.
But we didn't stop there! We expanded the "Create new Project" dialog to allow you to specify who should be in that project, right then and there.
Also notice the "Automatically add new staff members to this project" checkbox. Super-handy! You can set it a project creation time, but you can also change it later.
In the settings, we added a "Non-Staff" tab which shows all the different project members invited to your site, regardless of which project they're on. This overview was sorely missing for site owners.
We also made it easier to spot staffers and non-staffers inside a project, by adding a little "staff" label to the appropriate avatars in the project members pop-up menu:
Note how we removed the "quick invite" text input from that pop-up menu. It's now inside the "Add and Manage Members" dialog:
This is a one-stop shop to add or remove staffers and non-staffers to your project, as well as inviting others.
Note that for staff members, we only ever show non-staffers that belong to other projects the staffer is already a member of. In other words, if you want to keep a project and its external members secret, it will work: only the staffers on that project will be able to see the non-staffers from that project. It's complicated, but it works, trust us. 🙂
You can now use your drive images or upload new images from within the Mockups editor in Mockups for Google Drive.
That's right, you can now link your mockups together in Mockups for JIRA. The feature works just like on the desktop: you select other mockups from the same JIRA issue, then go full screen to navigate between your linked mockups.
If you're using myBalsamiq, you're already updated. Just log back in and enjoy.
For other versions, simply install from our download page on top of your current installation. You won't have to re-register.
As always, if you hit any snags with the new build let us know immediately and we'll fix it right up! 🙂
For posterity, these are the version numbers of today's release:
We have started working on the following issues:
On other news, we are hiring!
