We’ll be releasing some significant improvements and additions to Nextpoint this upcoming weekend. As always, no upgrades or changes are required for our users. Just login anytime after the release and you’ll be greeted by a great new interface and numerous enhancements.
Here are some of the highlighted changes:
- We’ve updated the look and feel of the application. In addition to improving the overall design, we wanted to create as much room as possible for displaying the guts of the product. The result is sharp and efficient.
- Navigation has been restructured a bit to make it as easy as possible to get to high traffic portions of Nextpoint. Other valued, but less frequented items are under the more tab.
- We’ve added a persistent search box to the header so that searching your evidence, calendar, blog, and files is always readily available.
- There is a new streamlined mobile interface for Nextpoint that makes it unbelievably simple to search all evidence from any internet capable mobile device and get docs and transcripts sent directly to your mobile inbox.
- We’ve enhanced search to include statistics of matched pages and total page counts. We’ve also added related results from the case calendar, files, and blog.
- You can now import and export events from the calendar using the standardized iCal format. If you use Outlook, Google Calendar, Apple iCal or just about any other calendaring software you’ll be able to import/export between Nextpoint and your local calendar.
- We’ve changed the name of our Messages functionality to Blogs. And in doing so included a secure RSS feed for posts. Due to the highly sensitive nature of all communication and data in Nextpoint, you’ll need to use an RSS client that supports secured feeds such as Outlook.
We hope you like all the changes in Nextpoint. Get in touch if you have any questions or would like more details at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Update: This is live functionality in the Nextpoint application as of May 17th.
