As we say hello to 2021, it’s lovely to be able to share news of updates to our mobile application - all hinged around our mission to connect people. Released yesterday, the new version brings Awards, Peer-to-Peer Payments, and language localization. Let’s dig in!
On the timeline you’ll find a new Award option. When you tap this, Task will let you send tokens from your wallet to the user who completed the timeline task.
You can also send a message to let them know why you’ve sent them this Award. And these awards get listed in the timeline, letting everyone see the great work that's being done.
You don’t need to be a team member of a project to send Awards to the users. If you follow a project and can see the activities being completed, you can send Awards!
Say thanks when people do great things. We feel it's a lovely way to connect.
We discussed in our article which explains our use of blockchain Stable Coins - and when you add this to the fact we support all traded Stellar tokens as well as creating your own branded Stellar token - user payments become really useful.
When you navigate to the profile of any user in Task, you will find a “Send tokens” button at the bottom - tap this, choose the tokens to send, add quantity plus optional message - and your tokens are sent.
For both Awards and Peer-to-Peer Payments you’ll find tracking of these transactions by tapping on your profile in the mobile app, and viewing your transaction history.
You’ll see all inbound and outbound transactions - and if you’ve got your nerd head on, you can tap the Network Explorer links to view the Stellar blockchain transactions. Remember, you’ll need to be part of a Task project that supports tokens payments in order to see this stuff.
New language support
The mobile app now supports Chinese (simplified), Thai and Khmer - letting Task connect into communities that were previously shut off from us.
If you have communities you want to connect to, but need localisation - we can add new languages for customers, just get in touch with us to discuss.
Bonus update - video support!
While we have only released it as a beta right now, video is supported. When activities are tracked, you can opt to ask for video - currently with a 30 second limit and restricted to live takes.
If you have initiatives that you feel could benefit from video including how to publish this automatically to your social media channels, then get in touch with us.
2021 - bring it on.
As we wave goodbye to 2020, we’re under no delusions that 2021 will bring its own challenges. But we do feel that focussing on developing communities for organisations with social missions and connecting people in ways that feel good will be our way to combat whatever comes our way.
We do have lots of great developments in the pipeline, but I hope this breakdown of latest updates is useful.
Happy New Year!
We love to talk!
Why not schedule a time that works for you to see if Task could help your organisation take off in 2021?
