Flight MIA – Release Notes

New user-friendly features are inbound for Flight! We’re introducing a bold new update to our Settings interface, as well as a new Follow feature for the files you need to keep an eye on.

 

New Settings Interface Update

We’ve updated our Settings interface for a more user-friendly experience. They’re much easier for Pilots to navigate: simply click on the relevant icon.

Some of our most popular settings now have their own icons, including account information, individual portals, and configuration options like metadata and custom fields.

Follow Files New Feature

For files that require your full attention, we’ve introduced the Follow feature.

Click the eye icon  eye-icon-sm  to follow a particular file or album. Follow will send an in-app notification for the following interactions:

  • A user leaves a new comment on the file
  • A new version of the file is uploaded
  • Any information on the Information View page is modified
  • The file is deleted

Additionally, followed albums will send a notification whenever a file is added or deleted from the album.


 

My Collections New Feature

Favorites are now enhanced with personal My Collections albums. Users can create their own personal albums with a collection of their favorite files.

By clicking the heart icon  heart-icon  , a file is added to a My Collection folder. Users can create new Collection folders directly from this window.

It’s now possible to add subfolders and sub-albums to portals. No longer will users only have to add top-level folders to a portal. Get more specific!
