What are the dates for the Project Library beta?
The beta is scheduled to start on September 26. It will continue until we’re comfortable that everything is working the way we all want it to. Once we're completely happy with the whole experience, we'll remove the beta label!
Why go into beta?
Simple. We’d like your feedback. This is an area of the application that many of you rely on and we want to be sure the workflow works as well as possible.
What does the Project Library include?
The Project Library section of Wipster includes all of the following features & functions:
Switching between teams
Uploading media and managing uploads
Managing existing media and versions
Creating and managing folders
Searching for media files and folders
Sharing media or creating new reviews from the Project Library
What’s new in the beta?
Like with the previous beta, our main focus has been on modernizing the core functionality while incorporating as much customer feedback as possible. Look out for:
Consistent look and feel across media management and review tools’ UI, and smoother navigation between both
A streamlined experience which feels less cluttered and better organized
An improved upload experience so you can:
Track uploads and encodings in progress
Locate uploaded items more easily
Light and dark mode
Hiding and resizing the file tree to maximize real estate or view longer project names
How do I join the beta?
It’s available to all Wipster team members using the app on desktop. To try it out, just click the “Try the Beta” button at the top of your home screen.
During the beta, you can change your default preference back to the legacy Media Library at any time by clicking the “Beta” button and choosing ‘Exit Beta’.
Can I use a mix of the legacy Media Library and the Beta?
Absolutely! Everything you do in the new Project Library is backwards compatible so mix and match to your heart's content.
What happens during the beta?
During the beta, we’ll be collecting as much feedback about the new Project Library from our users as possible. We’ll also be continuing to update the new Project Library with new features throughout that time period.
You said some features will come later?
Indeed! While the core capabilities are in place there are some things you’ll initially need to use the old version for. We’ll be working to add those over the course of the beta
Multi selection actions (Bulk Copy, Move, Archive, Trash)
Drag and drop
Import from cloud
What happens once the beta ends?
After a successful beta, the new Project Library will become the default experience for all Wipster team members. At that time, the legacy Media Library may still be available for use for a limited amount of time.
How do I share my feedback with Wipster?
Please don’t hesitate to let us know what you think about the beta. You can get in touch with our team anytime through the chat feature in the app (Click your username, then select Help & Support), or by emailing email@example.com.
What’s next after this?
Our goal is nothing less than a complete overhaul of the entire Wipster experience so —as you can imagine— we’re tackling this in stages. In fact you’ve already seen some of them:
[x] Review tools for Reviewers
[x] Review tools for logged in Team Members
[x] iOS mobile app
[ ] Project Library
[ ] Review statuses (formerly known as Flow)
[ ] Account and subscription management
Of course, our intention is to make Wipster awesome on any device so any plans we have now will be influenced by the feedback you provide.
