Visual Reports Editor: Changes to layout, tooltips, and chart description

Editor Mode Layout Changes

The layout of our Visual Editor has been improved to make data source and field catalog settings more visible.


Report Description

Sometimes, the title of a report is not enough to fully explain it, so we have added the possibility to provide a brief description as well. You can add a description in edit mode.


Native In-Chart Calculations (Beta)

It is now possible to create native report calculations using the "+" button in any axis. For now, you can only create only simple axis aggregations that were already available via the standard UI, but we will soon enhance it with additional statistical, math, date and text functions. We'll discuss the creation of native calculations in greater detail with an upcoming blogpost.


Redesign of Edit Field Dialog

The axis field editor has been improved. There are now two separate tabs for editing data settings and appearance settings.

  • We've also added the ability to edit data calculations related to the axis field
  • Axis labels can be hidden now using the "Hide Axis" setting in the Appearance tab
  • Annotations have been moved to the Appearance tab


Tooltip Enhancements

We've added a value difference label to data tooltips so that you can compare your current period with the previous one.


We really appreciate your feedback on our reports editor. What do you like about it? What could be improved? Let us know what you think at ux@targetprocess.com

What we will do in the Targetprocess UX Community:

  1. Share concept solutions, sketches, prototypes, and ask for your feedback.
  2. Post quick news and updates about our progress in various areas.
  3. Find people to participate in usability testing of new features and solutions.

Targetprocess Mobile for iOS: Release 3.0

We're very happy to announce that we've updated the Targetprocess iOS app with improved navigation and a much smoother UX. After analyzing your feedback, we decided to place all of the user's main entry points into one place. Views, Search, Quick Add, and User Profile are now easily accessible from tabs on the bottom bar. We hope that this ease-of-access will improve your experience with our app:


For example, if you want to add a new work item, you no longer have to hunt down the corresponding view - just tap the "Add" tab and select the entity type you wish to add.

Or, if you want to see all the items that are assigned to you, just tap the "Me" tab:

We've also added the possibility to select more than one team and fill out additional custom fields when using Quick Add to create a card.

We're now working on improving Entity views and extending the app's functionality. If you have any suggestions or feedback for us, feel free to shoot us a message at mobile@targetprocess.com.

Targetprocess Mobile App Update

A big thank you to everyone who took part in our recent mobile app user survey! After analyzing your feedback, we identified some key areas to focus on. We’ve already implemented some of your suggested improvements, and we’re working hard on the rest.

We’d also like to refine the overall user experience of the app, so stay tuned for more updates. You can download the app for free from either the App Store or Google Play. Check out our latest changes below, and let us know what you think.

Targetprocess Android App:

Our latest improvements:

  • Added the ability to login via Single Sign On (must be activated for the web version first).
  • Views that you have hidden in our main web-based application will now be removed from the mobile app. This will help to declutter the left menu, and will better connect your personal customizations to the mobile version.
  • Dashboards and reports have been temporarily removed from the left menu until we find a better way to display and support them.
  • You can now refresh the left menu and boards’ setup by pulling down on the left menu with your finger (pull-down refresh).
  • Added the possibility to open links to entities directly in the app (i.e. links to tasks, user stories and other types of cards can now be opened in-app).
  • Improved caching for views: any changes made to a view will now be retained after it is reopened.
  • Fixed a bug involving incorrect setting of Release and Iteration fields. Releases and iterations will now be filtered correctly at all times.

We’ve also enabled push notifications. Never miss an important work item again -- unless you want to of course. You’ll receive notifications on your phone’s home screen when you are assigned or unassigned to an entity, when the state of an item you are assigned to changes (e.g. from “in progress” to “done”), and when you are mentioned or replied to in an entity’s comments.  

What we’re working on right now:

  • Improving real-time updates for boards.
  • Storing all notifications in one place within the app.
  • Implementing @mentions in comments.


Targetprocess iOS App:

Our latest improvements:

  • Added support for @mentions in comments.
  • Added the ability to log in via Single Sign On (must be activated for the web version first).
  • Added the possibility to open links to entities directly in the app (i.e. links to tasks, user stories and other types of cards can now be opened in-app).
  • Added the possibility to save images attached to entities in Targetprocess to the photo gallery of your iPhone or iPad.
  • Improved real-time updates for boards.
  • You can now log time spent and remaining time directly from an entity's description.

What’s next:

  • Adding a Quick Add button for effortlessly adding new entities. This button will always be available from the bottom panel.

We’re also looking at improving general navigation and re-working the way entities and boards look in the app. Here is a preview of the would-be board view, user story view, and interface for comments:

If you feel like beta-testing these new mobile functionalities or trying out our new concept for boards, let us know! You can send your feedback, ideas and suggestions to mobile@targetprocess.com.
