UseResponse 1.0.1

It’s been a month since we launched our Customer Feedback Software – UseResponse. And since then we have been working hard on new features as well as fixes and usability improvements.

There are more  than 50 tweaks and bug  fixes in 1.0.1 release. And we are glad to provide all our contributors and current customers with Newsletters and SiteMap modules that can be downloaded from License Manager Area.

Improved Cache Management

The new version of UseResponse is now 30-50% faster due to improvements and optimization of the cache environment. All blocks now are cached on front-end:

  • Home page;
  • Responses list page;
  • Breadcrumbs;
  • Full Response page.

Better Quick-Search Feature

Among usability improvements, we have been working on improving the process of creating new responses.In 1.0 version the search results were returned on the search results page, and in 1.01 we have implemented Ajax search, without page reload, and usability improvements.  This feature is done to reduce the number of duplicate responses added, and help users easier and faster find what they are looking for:

Categories Icons & Filters

Categories icons are now larger (32×32 px) and look more nice on the main page. When going to the categories page, you can now not just filter responses by categories, but also view all uncategorizedresponses.

We have also improved text formatting in the widget, as well as responses, and comments. Now if there are any attachments to the response description or to the comment, links to these attachments are also included in the email notification. Several attachments in response are now open in several browser tabs.

Further Plans & Extras

During this month we were also working on such  new features and modules:

  • Chat (will be released later in 1.1);
  • Developer API;
  • Auto-Updater for UseResponse;
  • Sitemap Module (available for download in Extras area) – all users with active license has access;
  • Newsletters Modules (available for download in Extras area)  – all users with active license has access;
  • Admin Manual – we’ve finished our administration manual that will help configure your system.

In the long run we are planning to add lots of other features, finish User Manual and publish Module Development Guide that would improve your customer support and integration with 3rd party systems.
