Fusioo Roadmap

Now that the majority of features planned for Phase 1 have been completed, we're releasing Phase 2 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. Over the coming months we will be updating our public roadmap with each major release. Here is what we have planned for the coming months (not in any particular order):

Development Phase 2

1. App Builder improvements

One of the most requested improvements was the ability to update Apps from within the workspace.

In this update we are going to move the App Builder functionality to the workspace. Once the update is released, you will be able to to update Fields and Dashboards without having to go back and forth between the workspace and the admin section.

2. Flexible Dashboard Layouts

Flexible Dashboard layouts have always been one of the most requested features. Right now, you are still only allowed to choose a Dashboard layout from one of the three predefined templates.

In future updates, we will be removing this Dashboard layout limitation.

You will be able to create your custom Dashboard layouts, move widgets around and resize them as you please. You will also be able to mix all widget types in a single Dashboard.

3. Improved notifications

We will also be giving the notification system a major overhaul. Here are some of the upgrades:

  • Introduction of daily/weekly roundups. The introduction of daily and weekly roundups will help you take control of your daily workflow while letting you know what your colleagues are working on.
  • New notification settings. The new settings will give you more control over what types of notifications you receive. For example, you might want to disable all of your notifications except for @mentions.
  • Ability to receive notifications by email. Emails will be sent to alert you when you are mentioned in a particular discussion.

4. Improved Math Calculation

The Math Calculation will also be undergoing some major updates.

  • Calculations on related Apps. You will be able to create calculations on Link to App Fields. For example, if you have a Projects and Tasks App, you will be able to create a new Field on your Projects that calculates the SUM of the related Tasks durations.
  • Improve ease of use. You will be able to select Fields in formulas, without the need to write the Field names yourself.
  • Automatically recalculate Math calculations. Fusioo will automatically recalculate record data when updates to a Math Calculation formula are made.

5. New 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 in the near future:

  • Google Drive
  • DropBox
  • Box
  • Slack

6. Improved Fields

Fields are Fusioo's building blocks.

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

  • Recurring Dates and reminders. You will be able to set up recurring Dates and get reminded either through in-app notifications or via email.
  • Add previews for Web URLs (Hyperlinks). We will add previews for Web URLs that are updated in realtime as soon as the URL is changed.
  • Improve Select Field. The Select Field will undergo several changes, including sorting, color formatting and better reuse of list items across different Apps.
  • Add "unique" functionality.We will also be adding "unique" functionality across multiple Fields to help eliminate duplicate data entries.

6. 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 simple lists with the ability to check items off the list. 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.
  • Auto-Increment Field. You will be able to create a new Field that is automatically incremented when a new record is created.
  • Lookup Field. You will be able to extract information from related Apps and display that information in your main App.

8. Field Rules

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

Some of the 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 Dropdown List 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.

9. Better Collaboration

Improved notifications. Notifications will be grouped into 3 different sections (Discussions, Updates and All) to make it easier to find relevant updates. You will be able to mark notifications as read/unread and optionally show only unread notifications.

Improved user experience when accessing records. The same functionality will be available from both the Edit record popup and the full record page. Things like discussions, activity, developer information, copy record and delete record will all be accessible from the Edit record popup.

10. Inline editing

One of our goals is to drammatically reduce the time required when it comes to editing existing records.

You'll be able to edit record details with a single click (or using keyboard navigation) directly from the List View.

11. Field Sections

Field sections will allow you to group Fields together and create your custom record layout.

This will dramatically improve data entry and Field organization.

For example, in a Contacts App you will be able to create sections such as:

  • Personal Information
  • Contact Details
  • Other Information

12. Webforms

The ability to capture data from a website and insert it into Fusioo is one of the most requested features. Web Forms will allow such functionality. Apart from Web Forms, we will be working on a new way to expose data within Fusioo to the general public. This will come in quite handy if you are storing a product catalog that needs to be exposed on your website.

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

13. More updates

Apart from improving your Fusioo experience, we'll be working on helping you migrate more of your existing business processes into Fusioo.

Some updates we'll be adding include:

  • Reporting. You will be able to create custom reports, such as invoices and expense reports, from within Fusioo itself.
  • Workflows. You will be able to set up workflows to perform specific actions based on particular triggers.
  • 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. 👍
