The Updates Section is the perfect platform for dynamic communication between your team regarding a specific item or task on your board. It's the perfect way to facilitate transparent collaboration and communication, and it's so easy to do so on-the-go with the mobile app! 💬
The first column on our board always contains the names of our items. To the right of the item's name, we can see a speech bubble that often has a number inside. This speech bubble represents the item's updates, and the number reflects the number of updates on each item! If we click on an item, we can take a closer look.
When you click on an item, you can see two sections: the Columns and the Updates. Click on "Updates" to see all the communication between your team! This is where you can really bring your team's communication up a notch. 😉
From here, we can see all of the updates associated with this item, and we can respond accordingly!
While all of our updates can be found in the "Updates" section of our item, we can add a new update from both our "Columns" and "Updates" section! At the very bottom of our screen, there's a small text box.
When we click the box, we can begin typing our update. From here, we can add images, files, or @ mention our team members! When we're finished composing our update, we'll click the send icon to publish!
I don't know about you, but sometimes I feel like my fingers are just too big for my phone's keyboard! But there's no need to panic when we make typos when writing our updates from our mobile because we can go back in and edit them from our Android app even after we've published it!
All we have to do is click the update we want to edit to open it up in full screen and click the 3 dot menu:
Next, we'll select "Edit" from the drop down menu:
Now all we have to do is make all of the edits we want, and click "Save"!
