Pipefy in Review: Everything that happened in 2016
Can you believe the year is almost over? Well, neither can I! As the popular saying says, “time flies when we’re having fun” and, considering how fast this year flew by, it’s safe to say we had a whole lot of fun!
2016 brought many news for us here at Pipefy so we’ve decided to wrap up the year with a retrospective of all the great changes we went through. Our year in review aims to help remind those of you who have been with us for a while all the great things we’ve conquered together, as well as let the newcomers know we’ve already came a long way in these 365 days.
We’ve decided that the best way to do our year in review would be to walk you by each month of this year and let you know everything our dedicated design and development teams released to make Pipefy even better for you.
It seems like a lifetime ago but only 11 months ago, back in January, our teams released three awesome features that have already helped (and will keep on helping) thousands of users all around the globe be more efficient and productive: email inbox, filters and productivity metrics.
February was the month we were glad to release a feature that was much awaited by many of our users: reports. This amazing feature brought with it the possibility of exporting all your pipe’s data in .csv format for deeper analysis.
March marked a very important milestone in Pipefy’s history. It was the month when we ended our beta testing period and officially launched Pipefy. If you’ve been with us ever since our beta, we’d like to take a moment to say thank you! It was only through your help and support that we were able to come so far!
Yes, you’ve read it right – I skipped April! Don’t get me wrong, it’s not like nothing important happened – the reason we didn’t have anything to ‘show’ is because our teams were working non-stop to improve our internal structure so we could support the increasing amount of users signing up.
May came with huge innovation – we’ve delivered a whole new interface and the new pipe – this revolution happened because we felt the need for a cleaner, simplified interface and we were right – so many people complimented the improvements and we couldn’t be happier!
In June we’ve delivered another much awaited feature – the database. With this new feature we gave users the ability of creating data tables for registering their process’ data such as customer, supplier and product registration.
Six months into our year in review we get to July, when we’ve delivered a new permission level called Guest Users. These users have limited access (they can only create cards on the organization’s public pipes) and they’re not charged under your company’s Pipefy plan.
Our main delivery in August were the subtitles. This feature gave users the ability of choosing which of the pipe’s phases fields he/she wanted to display in the closed card view. Instead of only seeing the information chosen as the card’s title, users were now able to display as many fields as wanted on the closed card.
September was the month we’ve launched two revolutionary features: in app notifications and my desk. These features allowed users to keep closer track of the activity within their pipes and made it easier for users to accompany their activities due dates.
In October our developers worked non-stop to make Pipefy available in the chrome app store and they also launched the browser notifications, a feature that allows you to keep track of your organization’s activities in real time through the notifications in your browser.
November was a huge month (and I’m not just saying that because it’s the month I was born in). We’ve delivered one of the biggest milestones in our year in review: Pipefy 2.0 – a newly remodeled version of Pipefy with many performance improvements as well as the new card structure and activity timeline.
In December our development team delivered many important features such as the pipe icons, the settings’ new interface and a new permission level called ‘restricted view’, that allows you to determine whether you want users to see all the cards on a pipe or just the ones he/she is assigned to.
Our year in review wouldn’t be complete if I failed to mention the amazing ebooks we’ve launched throughout the year:
- The Starter’s Guide to Process Automation: A partnership with Contentools, this ebook is a step by step guide on how to automate your processes. Kick the new year off being more efficient and saving time;
- SaaS Customer Lifecycle Made Easy: Together with our friends over at Pipz Automation we’ve put together a guide to teach you how to increase your business’ revenue based on the pirate metrics;
- The Ultimate Guide to Organize your Business: Our CEO, Alessio Alionço, wrote this amazing guide on how to manage productivity and execution.
It’s been a busy (but rewarding) year for all of us. We’d like to thank you for helping us make this all possible – we couldn’t have done this without you!
I’d also like to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy 2017 on behalf of everyone on Pipefy Team! We hope you enjoy the holidays and come back ready to make 2017 as amazing as 2016 was!
