Snapshots 'Secondary Grouping' now includes Custom Fields!🚦

We are super excited to let you know that you can now group your Snapshots by all the Custom Fields you create in your Templates! This is really great for honing in on areas of interest within your entire Organization, and helps you customize reports to show how your Goals relate to very specific aspects of your strategy.

For example, you could group your whole Organization's Plan by the RAG Status of your Goals.

September Updates

September is here and so are our updates!

18 September, 2019

  • A few more improvements on the looks and feels of the planner page for the latest Chrome.
  • Our bulk upload engine wasn't accepting CSV generated from Google Sheet using Windows Chrome. This is now fixed. No more troubles please, Chrome. 🙏
  • Fixed the issue with broken dashboard if you had filters on a disabled templates on table widgets.

16 September, 2019

  • On 10 September 2019, Chrome released its latest version Chrome 77. That upsetted  some of the icons and colour bars on our planner. We've fixed them and they now look 👍 on all modern browsers.

6 September, 2019

  • If you've ever grouped your Goals on the Snapshots you'd know that Custom Fields weren't a option.  Well since the Strategy Model has launched people naturally want to see their Custom Fields everywhere - and honestly so do we! So we added them as grouping options on your Snapshot Reports.
  • Recent updates have changed how we generate PDF exports and may have altered some elements of their appearance, particularly in older browsers. Find out how this impacts your browser here 👀

August Updates

Here are the latest and greatest updates to Cascade for the month of August...

23 August, 2019

  • Sometimes when you added a user through the quick add feature in the goal designer you were kicked out of Cascade. Ouch! that won't happen anymore.

Coming Soon

Coming Soon: New Quick-Edit Sidebar

Editing and updating goals will soon be a breeze with the new Cascade sidebar!

We're introducing a new quick-edit sidebar which will allow you to update your progress, view and edit your goal details and add updates/tasks/risks without ever having to leave the page you're on. Here's a quick preview:

Most (though not all) of the functionality from the Goal Hub & Goal Designer will make its way into the new sidebar. At launch, you'll be able to use the sidebar on the Strategy Planner, My Goals, Snapshots & Dashboards. We'll be adding more options to this list in the future.

We are expecting the new sidebar to be live by the end of Q3 2019. You'll still be able to update your goals on the traditional Goal Hub & Goal Designer if you like too!

Coming Soon: New Navigation

When it's not easy to find what you're looking for quickly - it can be frustrating. That's why we will soon introduce a new navigation menu to Cascade. We're making things significantly simpler and grouping everything into either Plan, Manage or Track.

Here's a quick preview of what the navigation will look like once it goes live:

The new 'side-nav' will replace the current drop-down menu system that lives at the top of the screen at the moment. For smaller screens, you'll have the option to 'collapse' the navigation so that it takes up less space. You've probably seen this type of navigation on other modern software systems, so hopefully it won't be too long before you fall in love with it 😍!

We don't have an exact date for the change yet, but we're aiming to have it released in the next couple of months.
