Expand entering goal, role, etc. - anyone uses it?

Upd.: Since it turned out that there are still user who use it, we'll not remove it! Thanks for the feedback!

Long time ago, on smaller screens, this was a necessity for some users (including me) to enter more text than is visible.




Time goes on and bigger screens gain more and more market place. It seems like it's not that useful anymore and even may lead to confusion to new users.

So, if there's no serious objection, we'll gradually remove them from most of the screens.

  1. Well, as users will usually keep goal names and roles as short as possible, this would not be a great loss on screens with 4" and bigger.

    On the other hand, this button won't hurt little kitties,will it? If there is a reasonable number of small-screen-users you take the risk that their user experience doesn't meet their expectations anymore. (I switched away from 3.5" not too long ago, sometimes miss this palm-fitting device.)

    There is a section where I really miss this button: "My Influence" isn't just a one-word-headline thing, so I'd be glad to find this full screen button there with one of the next updates, if possible.

    Cheers, Olaf

    1. Olaf, thanks for the comment! On concerns/influences page you add a one-line concern title, but then you can describe your thoughts by editing description of that concern: click on it in the list and it will lead you to its page, where you have 'description' field.

  2. Another thing to consider: most Android wearables have a rather small screen size. That market doesn't seem to be moving very fast, though, and I'm not sure if the app can be used with those devices anyway... but if it can, then this "expand" option may still have a place.

    I don't need it, personally, though, and I certainly appreciate your interest in removing clutter. Just some things to think about.

    1. Hi Jay Jech, thanks for the feedback! Frankly, I doubt at the moment any wearable is suitable for anything more than basic notifications and things like checking a tick box. Typing on them, though possible, is a big challenge. But, some users use it on their devices, so we'll keep them for longer.

    1. Can't now, but we plan to work on that in the nearest future. Will write about that when it is out.
