Increased stickiness, scheduling and visual improvements

June 29, 2020

Hi there!

This is our weekly update, and we’d greatly appreciate any feedback.

New features / significant changes:

  • Increased stickiness. We added some major changes to the algorithm to increase scheduling predictability and reduce last-minute reschedulings. This is now available on all accounts.
  • Prioritizing hard-to schedule meets. Some meets are harder to schedule than others due to the number of people and all-meets in common across participants. Some of our users have experienced hard-to-schedule meets getting pushed out for weeks by meets that are easier to schedule. We have added an additional boost to meets that are hard to schedule to improve this.
  • New media controls. We’ve improved the appearance and usability of media controls. Now it is more obvious when recording is turned on, or if you are muted.

Small improvements & bug fixes:

  • [IMPROVEMENT] Timer is more noticeable closer to the end of the meet
  • [IMPROVEMENT] Reduced visual shuffling of meets during rescheduling CPU consumption
  • [IMPROVEMENT] Reduced CPU and network utilization during rescheduling
  • [IMPROVEMENT] Increased number of search results to 50
  • [BUG] Do not schedule meets with you as optional during urgent-only all-meets
  • [BUG] Fixed a sporadic issue with showing incorrect paused state in the UI after recording was restarted
  • [BUG] Fixed the issue with duplicate join/rejoin controls

Next week we plan to release additional visual improvements, as well as new scheduling features that weren’t included into this release: “if necessary” all-meets acceptance and accepting all-meets only for meets from specific Slack channels.
