Updates Log

We update CallPlease every week. Many of the mobile app changes need to be grouped together and released less frequently because the testing and release process is a bit more taxing on us. Without going deep into technical details, we reduce the need for mobile app updates by making more of the magic happen in Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) that live in the ethers.

2 June 2020

  • Very close to having the editable tabs feature locked a loaded. Web code is done and in test this week!
  • Fixed a bug that kept notifications from happening if you have logged in on both iOS and Android devices
  • Enterprise customers can now request conversion of users from Assistant to Executive. Named account representatives should contact jim@ to request these changes.

19 May 2020

  • iOS app updated to squash some bugs and try desperately to keep up with Apple’s world view, including a challenge we had with phone numbers that didn’t really have a label
  • Android app gets another quick update to clean-up some bugs
  • Work has begun on editing tab names (as often requested)
  • Backend fixes to make google search a bit more effective

5 May 2020

  • A bug was squashed that inhibited some admin users from deleting users
  • A very old bug that kept calls listed in a search window from updating their appearance when edited or when a Call Action was applied. Now the call is updated and the search is run again.
  • The new Android app is up and available for the world to enjoy.

April 21 2020

  • Final preparation for the new Android app includes lots of behind-the-scenes compliance and rights updates that will fix a number of issues but.more excitingly, will allow for you to select the app you want to use to place calls – including VoIP apps or conferencing apps like Cisco Webex, Skype or Microsoft Teams.
  • Some improvements to the trial process have been added

April 7 2020

  • Desktop Notifications now fully operational for Safari, Edge, and Firefox. Due to the way Chrome deals with notifications, clicking on the notification will not take you to the Calls page. All other browsers do direct you to the Calls page. This feature is not available on Internet Explorer (stop using that!)
  • Some code clean-up cut a full second out of the page load on the Calls page!

March 24 2020

  • New iOS app is staged that includes fixes and updates behind the scenes
  • Begin the process of updating the Android app to deal with some incompatibilities across vendors and operating systems

March 18 2020

  • vCard downloads: You can now download address books in vCard format!
  • Fixed an encoding issue that was converting spaces to the HTML equivalent %20
  • Began a project to convert ancient Perl code to modern shiny Java code to help with managing server load.

11 March 2020

  • A new iOS update is queued that updates the SSO screen to comply with Apple’s new multi-app viewing requirements and fixes a bug that fails to load calls when the app is first launched (you just need to pull down to get them to load, but it’s just poor form)
  • Changes to Apache configuration to better handle the surge of requests we get at the start of each and every day
  • The new vCard export/import function is in testing that will allow for easier movement of contacts between account and applications

12 February 2020

  • Updated iOS app queued with updated to Transfer Call and Assign Call actions to allow assignment to Call Logs that the user is not a member of.
  • Address Book integration with Google Contacts would fail to capture new Company names under certain circumstances. Now fully functional

4 February 2020

  • Timing on contact importing, both through upload and cloud integration where updated to allow list over 2,000 contact (you don’t really know that many people)
  • A number of deprecated and unused jscript calls have been removed
  • Integration links updated

29 January 2020

  • A glitch in the Trial process was fixed, allowing trial emails to begin flowing again and the automation around trial ending to restart. This reminded a lot of people to subscribe. Thanks for that.
  • The pdf printing of call logs wasn’t responsive to the call sorting preferences. For privacy reasons, we can’t support name sorting (we would have to break our super secret codes) but the more commonly used Date sorting is now supported

22 January 2020

  • HBO Web app updated to latest add a call screens
  • Bug squashed that kept Assign Call from recognizing all the Shared Call Logs as options in the web app
