We Just Upgraded Sketchnote's Task Window

November 21, 2023

We've been bitten by the festive bug at Sketchnote! As we celebrated Diwali at our India HQ, we also decided to extend the joy to the platform! This time's update brings a long-awaited overhaul to the task window. And some more UX overhauls. Check them out!

PS: A special shout-out to Ken Cheung from Orbit Startups, for volunteering to do this update video for us!

New task modal, now live

You'll fall in love with this one. We've got a spanking new look to the task window. When you open up an issue, you can find a cleaner look to help you focus on the things that matter most.

For one, you can see labels laid out on the screen immaculately and subtasks front and center. The description box is bigger and better to allow you more space to write the most important pointers about this particular task.

We've been able to do this because we've moved the entirety of the right-hand column to other sides of the modal. You can now see the priority label as a priority flag on the top left of your box. The assignee, assigner, date, and time sections are now on the top right of the screen.

The icons on the top right will pop out comments, attachments, and the history of this task—so that you can open them only when you need them. The watch task and share button continue to remain right there on the icon panel.

This neat new look to the task window will bring your focus back to things that matter the most. And it's quite stunning to look at, if we may be honest!
