Confetti & A Burst Of Updates (v2.51)
We've been super busy over the last few weeks, and we're excited to share the latest updates! There's a variety of changes across Metro Retro, starting with improved confetti...
- The confetti has new streamers - go try it!
- Simplified team dashboard
- Changes to the Template Library
- Personalize your profile - add your picture, choose handwriting & colors
- Users can leave an Organization account
- Admins can delete the Organization account
- Streamlined help & added tours for new users
- Super powers for consultants with the new 'Host' plan
With the official launch of v2 around the corner, we decided it was time to update the confetti. Have a pop and check out the new streamers!
We thoroughly road-test each feature
We're also now counting each piece of confetti fired as a metric. On the first day of counting there were 261,576 individual pieces of confetti burst, but the second day had 1.16 MILLION! It would be an ecological disaster if this were real confetti. We'll find a fun way to share this useless metric regularly.
As it's firework season here in the UK, you can try this: add a black rectangle to your board's background, zoom in and fire your confetti. Voilà, you've got fireworks!
Your dashboard got easier to navigate - we've slimmed it down and replaced Recent Boards with All Boards, giving you a better view of the boards you have visited and have access to across your workspaces. There's also buttons to quick-create boards.
You can now scroll back through your entire board history in one place!
Updated Template Library
The Template Library now includes all standard templates as well as your custom templates. From here you can preview a template in full without needing to create it first.
Tip: how you add & edit custom templates has changed. Check out the Help article for a guide.
Personalize your user profile
You can now change your picture, name, email address, handwriting font and user icon color from the Preferences options in the top right (cog icon).
You can also now leave your Organization without needing an Admin to remove you. Reminder, you will lose access to all the boards and content you created & visited.
Delete Organization Account
An Admin can now delete their Organization Account from the Danger Zone in the Admin settings. This deletes the entire Account and all content inside it, for all your team members. Be warned - this is permanent.
Return of the Rubik font
We’ve updated the font in your dashboards from Inter to Rubik. We think it looks better and suits Metro Retro's personality!
Better Help & Guidance
We streamlined the Help and Guidance - there are new tours on the dashboard and inside a board, and we’ve removed the ‘Getting Started’ page from the dashboard.
Consultants get super powers with the new Host Plan
There is a new Host plan designed to help individuals, like consultants, to host brilliant meetings and workshops with their varying clients and groups. See the Pricing page for what's included in the plan. You can start a free 30 day trial of the Host plan from inside the Billing section if you are the Owner of your space (no credit card needed).
