Idea: When you add text to a text column, or add a URL to a link column; have that information append/save to the Updates of a pulse.
- Visibility: Currently, I use the text column to put the last thing I did on a task for a pulse. This makes it easy for my team to see what the last thing I did / current status. Unfortunately, this information does not save to the actual updates.
So I have to copy the text and press the button to open the updates then add it and click save. It would be really awesome if when I added text to the Text Column, it automatically appended it to the updates.
Limitations to using Status for notes: If you use the status column to add a text by clicking the top right hand corner, it only allows you to save 1 message for 1 status. This is not very convenient if you have a few different actionable items that you may complete while “in progress” status is going on.
Cross-Board movement: If you have text or links in columns and move a pulse to a new board without the same exact set up, you lose that information.
I’ve lost links and had to spend 30+ minutes searching for them because I thought that using the columns for links was the quick/easy/smart thing to do, but it isn’t when you move your pulse to a new board. Since the link isn’t getting saved into the update.
Random rant: Why is markdown available for submitting to community, but not in the actual platform? ¯_(ツ)_/¯
