May 2024 Changelog

May Release Notes

The following changes have been deployed in multiple deployments during May.

All bots

Setup

All of our bots include a new setup step to configure the timezone used in the server. This is necessary to ensure that all time-based features work correctly. Also, the setup can only be run by users with the "MANAGE_SETTINGS" permission, to prevent unauthorized changes. A bug caused the last step in the setup to be skipped, this has been fixed. When the last step was not skipped, it could not be skipped by the user. This has also been fixed.

AI Features

We have introduced an AI Assistant in the task comments when using the App. This assistant gains information about the task, to enable translation or question answering features. Learn how it works.

We have changed the AI models used for auto labeling (Task Manager and Knowledge Manager) and auto priority (Task Manager). This change makes the AI features faster and more accurate. Another way to improve the accuracy of the AI models was to experiment with the prompt text that gets sent to the AI model. We've made some changes to the prompt text to improve the accuracy of the AI models and prevent edge cases where the AI Feature would not work as expected.

Audit Log

We have introduced a new feature called the Audit Log. This log stores every action made on the server and can be accessed via the server settings in the App. The log contains detailed information about the action, the user who executed the action, and the time the action was executed. For example, when a task is modified, the log will contain every information about the task before and after the modification.

The log is stored for 30 days, while only the last 7 days are accessible for now. The log can not be deleted or modified by users, making it a secure way to track changes on the server. To see the log, users need the "MANAGE_SETTINGS" permission.

No Permissions

We have improved the way we handle permissions in the bots. When a user does not have the necessary permissions to execute a command, the bot will respond with a message that only the command executor can see. This prevents a method that could be used to spam a channel with error messages.

Date Input

In some commands it is possible to input a date, for example when setting a deadline with the Task Manager or creating an event with the Calendar Manager. We improved the way we handle specific date inputs, to prevent errors in some specific edge cases.

Task Manager

Task Comments

You can now leave comments on tasks with the /task comment command or when viewing a task in the app. When a new comment is added, the task assignees and previous commentators will receive a notification.

Notifications

The notifications you receive via direct message when a task is assigned, a deadline is reached or a task is repeated contain more information now. These messages now include the task description, together with the task title, if it does not exceed a certain limit set by discord.

The notifications you receive when a task gets assigned to you or a role of yours now contain buttons to set the task state. These buttons are only visible to users with the "SET_STATE" permission and they don't have a timeout anymore.
