Guideline for UpWave on mobile

 

We know that a lot of our users access UpWave through their phones. So far, UpWave has yet to launch an application for mobile phones. However accessing UpWave through your mobile browser is easier than you might think.

Simpy just follow this simple guideline:

1 . In your browser go to UpWave.io.

2. Click on sign in 

  • First you will be asked to enter your Team URL.
  • Then the next page that pops up is where you enter your email + password or you can sign in with Google.

3. Once you have entered your log in information and hit sign in, a new page will pop up.Her you will have to select save password.

4. Now that you are logged in, there is one final step remaining. And that is to add an icon for the displayed website on your home screen. It’s a visual bookmark – when you touche the icon, it will launch your browser and navigate directly to your Team page.

Tap by tap guide for iOS

  1. Select the Share button at the bottom center of the iPhone screen. The Share button is shaped like a square with an arrow coming out of the top.
  2. Select the item labeled “Add to Home Screen”.
  3. Another screen will appear where you can choose a name for the Home screen icon. Either keep the default name provided or type another name you prefer. When you are ready, tap the Add button in the top right corner to create the icon on the Home screen.
  4.  See the shortcut appear. You’ll return to the home screen, which is now showing a new icon, the icon can easily be moved around and placed wherever you want.

Tap by tap guide for Android

  1. Hit the settings button – it’s three vertical dots, locating in the top right of the screen – from here press the star symbol.
  2. Pressing the star symbol will bring you into the bookmarks menu. From here you can edit the web page’s name and select which bookmarks folder you want to save it into.
  3. From here go back to the Browser settings menu, and then open the Bookmarks folder. From here locate your newly created bookmark and press and hold your finger on the bookmark you want to place on your home screen. Once you’ve done this you will see a new menu appear and in the list will be an option Add to Home screen. Press this option.
  4. The icon will appear on your home screen like any other app shortcut or widget, so you can drag it around and put it wherever you like

And you are all sett- works almost as an app.

Ps- We have improved UpWave for iOS devices. However, feel free to give us feedback so we can even improve more: https://www.upwave.io/contact

Introducing our newest features

We have rolled out new features silently since August 17th. Many of these have been requested by our most active users. Thanks!

Some highlights:
– Subtasks – just enter subtasks on any card
– My assigned cards – see your overdue cards and upcoming workload
– Public api – https://www.upwave.io/api/ (for integrating other services)
– Set board background image (see screenshot)

Screenshot note: remember to use a neutral image to ensure good readability.

  • Copy card – Click “more options” (the dots) on any card, and copy card.
  • Import board – click “import board” lower left on main team page.
  • Export board – click the dots top right on any board (in team view)  or in the drop-down menu if inside a board.
  • Icons on cards displaying subtask progress and if the card has comments or not.
  • A “toast” that gives a confirmation on saving card/color/columns etc.
  • New board settings – makes navigation between administrating the board and actually working on the board much easier. All users may also see the settings but some users may not be able to edit the settings. The settings can in addition be opened from the dashboard. In the participant list on this panel, you can see when a participant last visited the board.
  • We added a new option to “Leave board”.

Thanks once again to our international and growing user community for providing feedback! Please continue keeping in touch.
