Fusioo Roadmap

Now that the major milestones included in Phase 2 have been completed, it's time to start working on Phase 3 of our development roadmap.

Please note that these feature plans are all subject to change. As with any product development it is difficult to predict exactly when new features will be rolled out. Even so, we think it's important to be as open and transparent as possible about our plans so that you can have the right expectations.

There are many features on our backlog and this is by no means an exhaustive list. Not everything is a 'new feature', our goal is to improve your experience with Fusioo and some major improvements included here are based on your feedback 🙏

Over the coming months we will be updating our public roadmap with each major release. Here is what we have planned (not in any particular order):

Development Phase 3

1. Webhooks

Webhooks allow you to get notified by Fusioo about changes to your data, as they happen.

Rather than requiring you to pull information via our API, webhooks will push information to your endpoint. When one of those events is triggered via a workflow (for example a new record is added), we will send this notification as an HTTP POST request, with a JSON body, to the endpoint(s) you specify.

This can be used to connect directly with other applications such as Slack or Zapier without writing any code.

2. Field Rules

We will be working on enabling rules for particular Fields. This means that you will be able to redefine your processes, set up better Field validations and reduce data entry errors.

Some examples of Field rules we'll be working on include:

  • Rules on Drop down Fields. You will be able to set up rules so that Fields are shown/hidden based on a selection from a Link to User, Link to Role and Select Field.
  • Rules on Tick box (Checkbox) Fields. Similar to the Dropdown List Fields, you will be able to apply rules that show/hide certain Fields when a Tick box is checked.

3. Webforms

This option will introduce a new automated way with which you can insert data in Fusioo.

You will be able to easily create a webform from any App in your Fusioo workspace. You can then share it publicly on other websites and each new entry is added to the appropriate App in Fusioo.

Some use cases:

  • Collect contact information from your website
  • Collect feedback from your website
  • Allow clients/contractors/collaborators to add information without giving them access to Fusioo

Note: You can currently use Webforms functionality from third party tools via our Zapier integration.

4. Better support for App Relationships

App relationships are a core part of all processes and we intend to improve the options available in this area.

Some planned improvements:

  • Bulk Edit a Relationship Field
  • Group by a Relationship Field
  • View related records as a list, badge or in a Kanban Board.
  • Lookup option for related records.
  • Use Relationship Fields as workflow trigger conditions.
  • Update related records from a workflow.

5. New Fields

These Fields will help you structure your data better within the Fusioo platform and become even more productive.

Here are some of the Fields we'll be working on:

  • Checklist Field. You will be able to create a simple list with the ability to check off completed items and track the progress. These lists will come in really handy when you want to create simple todo lists on particular records.
  • Rating Field. You will be able to rate records and share those ratings with your colleagues. This will be helpful in very specific scenarios, such as rating feedback on new ideas or rating job applications.
  • Map Field You will be able to add mapping functionality within your Apps. This will come in handy when you want to quickly find addresses of contacts or companies you are working with.
  • Activity Field. You will be able to add different types of activity as a timeline on a single record.

6. Workflow Improvements

We know how crucial workflows are to most of you. We will be adding more options based on the feedback we get. There might be a few surprises here too 😉

Some planned updates:

  • Trigger a workflow when a record is deleted and a new comment or discussion is added.
  • Trigger a workflow manually or on a specific schedule.
  • Delete a record(s) when a workflow is triggered.
  • Attach files to emails sent from a workflow.

6. Printing

Apart from the current export options, we will be adding options to print out information from Fusioo in a PDF format.

This option will be available for a single record, an entire dashboard or a specific group of records.

7. Global Dashboard

This update is aimed at making information instantly accessible without switching between different Apps.

You will be able to 'pin' widgets from different Apps and place them in a single global dashboard, making it possible to display all of the key metrics for your business in one place.

8. New/Improved Integrations

New integrations will be introduced within the core Fusioo platform. This will reduce unnecessary silos in your daily workflow.

Here are some product integrations we'll be working on:

  • Google Drive
  • DropBox
  • Slack
  • Zapier

There will also be some updates to the Fusioo API. New API methods and record filtering options will be introduced.

9. Reporting

With the reporting option, you will be able to export and present data in a different way. Report templates can be defined to help you extract the data automatically, on a schedule or manually.

You will be able to create custom reports, such as invoices and expense reports, from within Fusioo itself.

10. Mobile Apps

Apart from improving Fusioo's responsiveness in mobile devices, we plan on adding native iOS and Android apps.

We are always happy to review any constructive feedback. 👍
