I take all the responsibility to myself.
As someone who’s actively trying to keep our community satisfied and engaged, at the time (March) I said we’re going to improve the Comments like we did Long Text Editor, I did not lie.
It’s been an active topic since March, we’re discussing a lot of stuff since then, and I’m (just like the rest of the team) just trying to be as informative and transparent as possible with what we’re doing and working on.
As I said back then, we’re definitely going to improve the Comments feature. It’s not a question IF we’re going to do that, it’s just a question of WHEN, I promise you.
The thing is, Infinity is a startup with a team of 10 people (4 marketers, 6 developers) and a lot of us are covering multiple roles and responsibilities.
In the meantime, our team of 6 developers had a lot of priorities that kind of ‘swapped’ Comments.
We wanted to push Comments update to the ‘high’ priority column a month ago again, but then - a developer who was supposed to build that feature was assigned to finishing the troublesome Gantt View. Before that, he’s released a new version of Calendar, and before that optimized the whole app to have better performance, speed, etc.
I don’t want to bother you with what huge features other devs were and are assigned to (like Mobile Apps, Public Boards, Permissions, etc), but there is always web development (for the landing pages, homepage + template page optimization, etc), bug fixes, UX/UI changes and improvements, and more.
So yeah: I swear we’re not prolonging, ditching or trying to avoid something on purpose. It’s just a hell of a ride, man
But again: I’m not trying to justify someone/our team.
It’s my fault and responsibility that I didn’t update you on everything and tried to suggest you try the features that ‘swapped’ Comments upgrade.
I’m sorry, Carl-Etienne.
We’re just keeping a hell of a pace to keep this business & product running (which is like a rollercoaster, full of ups&downs) and our community satisfied overall.
But that’s all ‘normal’, and I personally think we have a great team, consisted of people who are hustlers.
Hope you won’t take this personal and judge us by one mistake.
I’ll personally make sure to see what we can do about Comments upgrade any time soon, but honestly, with the new LTD coming up, final touches on Gantt View, Advanced Permissions, New Roles, Public Boards, and everything else planned to help us sustain Infinity as a business, I hope we can continue with and finalize the Comments upgrade towards the end of this year.
I’ve just set a reminder to go back to this topic in a week and update you.
I can also add you on Facebook, and reach out over there with more details.
Thanks for everything you’re doing!
