Sidebar refresh, board activity and new share preview
We kicked off August with a ton of improvements to give you a better way to manage and organise your boards directly from the sidebar. So if you need to make a quick change to something like adding a new sub-board, rename or reorder your boards, you can now do it within the sidebar—without a single page load.
We've added a few little improvements to starring and commenting to give you a clearer view of what's happening on your boards.
Starring is a straightforward way to get a simple "yes" or "no" on something, but figuring out who has starred what hasn't been as simple as we'd like, especially if you've received feedback from a lot of different people.
To make it simpler, we've added tooltips that pop up if you hover over a starred badge on an item. That way, you can scroll the board and easily see who has starred items, at a glance.
You can now jump directly to an item by clicking on its thumbnail in the activity panel. This makes it far easier to review all your comments in context.
You always want your board to look good when you're sharing it with others, so now when you paste the board link into something like Slack, Notion, Dropbox Paper or Twitter, the link will unfurl and reveal your board thumbnail. It's a really nice way to share a "quick look" of what's on a board.
