Many Moo.do users like to organize their projects on a Kanban (or Scrum) board for Agile Development. This continues our series of examples of how people and teams are using Moo.do with a description of how Moo.do can be used as a Kanban board.
Moo.do is designed to be extremely flexible. Our goal is to allow anyone to organize in a way that makes the most sense for them. While building Moo.do, we've been using it to manage its own development: as a planner, project manager, todo list, calendar, and bug tracker. I'll describe how we use Moo.do as the first of a series of examples of how people and teams are using Moo.do.
We have spent a majority of the development process working remotely and in vastly different time zones, so making sure we know what to work on next without additional communication is especially important.
Moo.do now has a full Calendar! The new Calendar Pane has the original Agenda view as well as Day, Week, and Month views.
While we love the Agenda view for an overview of what's next, it is much easier to schedule and manage tasks, appointments, and emails on a calendar.
Moo.do tasks + Google Calendar
Combined with the Google Calendar integration, the Calendar Pane shows Moo.do tasks as well as appointments from Google Calendar. Moo.do and Google Calendar synchronize in both directions, so you can manage your calendar with Moo.do as well as work with your Moo.do events from other Calendar apps.
Calendar item context
Clicking an item in the calendar opens a new item details popup, which shows breadcrumbs for its parents, notes, and children.
Zoom and search Calendar
Search in the Calendar is the same as in other panes, so you can zoom the Calendar into a project and search for tags or other details, or show only high priority events.
Users of the free version of Moo.do will continue to have the Agenda, but the new Day, Week, and Month views are part of Moo.do Premium.
Help us improve
This is an Early Access release, meaning we want your feedback to get this feature right. Please let us know how you use the Calendar pane and how we can improve it for you. Thank you!
Over the past two months we've been steadily improving the mobile Gmail experience, and today we are releasing some new features that make organizing your emails much easier.
Drag to Outline
This makes it super quick to move emails into your Outline. When you drag an email onto "Drag to Outline," Moo.do quickly switches to your Outline Pane to drop the email.
The other option you can see in the above image is "Drag here to save," which makes it much easier to rearrange items in large documents. Dropping items on this area saves them, and then you can drag them out later.
Instant pane switching
We've also been doing a lot of work on the speed of the iOS and Android apps, so you can now switch panes with no delay.
Premium users will notice there is now a Gmail button in the bottom toolbar of the Moo.do iOS and Android apps. Moo.do now has a full mobile email client!
We are launching the mobile Gmail pane in beta today to bring it to you as quickly as possible. While mobile Gmail is in beta, we will be continuing to add email features and tighter integrations between your email and your Outline, as well as adding educational content on how to get the most of out Moo.do.
The Gmail pane will be available on your phone or tablet if you are a Premium user and have enabled the Gmail plugin in the desktop app.
