Web Client News

We've recently made some changes to the BrainJogger Web Client, some on purpose, others... were.. let's just say little gifts from the typo monkey clan.
  • Web client updates (Client/Server bug fixes) - (No client update required)
    • Modified "mass-edit" function to support filtering by project
      (Also added "Return to edit screen" for easier navigation.)
    • Enabled project filters for mass-add and PC edit screens (Request/Task Number #4304)
      Coder comment: May be extended to mass-edit in the future.
    • Added ability to change default context for tasks
      Previously, default task could only be changed audibly through through mobile client
    • Enhanced post mass-add screen to provide additional options (ease of navigation improvement)
  • Web client updates (October, 2020)
    • Corrected URL bug that was preventing "PC" updates (website) from properly sorting column headers
    • Added "Tasks (Mobile)" link to main page for easier access to task list from mobile web browsers
    • Added ability to filter on category and project in PC update screens (both PC and mass edit) Coder comment: Similar functionality may be extended to mass-edit in the future.
    • Corrected issue on date edits not being processed for projects with more than 4000 tasks.
      Coder comment: Issue was no calendar pop-ups for due dates or target dates from tasks numbers > 1000
    • Added entry count report line to bottom of mass update / PC edit screens.
    • Added limit of no more than 200 "mass edit" entries at a time.
      Recommend using filtering options but a pagination system is also being considered.

Infrastructure Change Log

Various changes since the last build:

  • Corrected URL bug that was preventing "PC" updates (website) from properly sorting column headers
  • Adjusted "morning report" to no longer play news casts on weekends that only update M-F
  • Adjusted "morning report" to not include news broadcasts before they update for the day (i.e., 8 AM podcasts don't play until after 8 AM)
  • Added "Tasks (Mobile)" link to main page for easier access to task list from mobile web browsers
  • Improved Wikipedia search functions (no longer case sensitive). Commands are "research quantum entanglement" vs. "full research quantum entanglement"
    Note: The command is research to read results (versus search which will just do a URL query and display the bing search page)
  • Fixed bug in stock price beta code causing some stocks not to have prices (those with a . in their symbol)
  • Fixed bug in stock price beta database causing BRK-A to not populate.
    Coder Comment: Database structure didn't support a single stock prince > $99,999.99. Sorry Warren, our bad.
  • Added web search commands to bring up browser on screen ("[search the web|do a web search|search] [for], look up, google XXX")
    Coder comment: Ironically, due to Google over thinking URL searches, Amadeus uses bing....
  • Reward category now supported in mobile client (add task with negative point values)
  • Fixed problem with morning report (Daily Bible verse is no longer read first)
  • "Phase of the moon" is now supported.

Mobile Client News

We've recently made some changes to the BrainJogger Mobile Client, some on purpose, others... not so much.

  • Mobile client updates (Version 1.3.1B, build 032518b) - These changes require a client update - Ask your DCRE representative for details

    • Modified "phase of the moon" to include image (above) as well as verbal description.
