During the last platform 1.76 and 1.76-1 release, we added these awesome features:
Flexible workflow configuration
Until now, our workflow was pretty set in stone: a file would go through the Annotation stage, followed by the Verification stage, and finally end up in a "verified" status. We also had two additional, predefined file statuses – "declined" (for files that couldn't be annotated) and "deferred" (for files awaiting clarification).
This structure has worked well for many scenarios, but we realized that it might not suit every need. We appreciate the diversity in our users' projects, and we understand that one size does not fit all.
So, what's the solution? Flexibility!
We're thrilled to introduce our newest feature: flexible workflow configuration. This means you can now customize your workflow as per your project needs. Want to add extra rounds of verification? No problem! Need to break down the annotation into stages for class-specific annotations? Absolutely! Want to mix and match annotation and verification stages? You got it! You can even add buffer stages to prioritize certain files or hold selected ones.
The main aim of this update is to give you more control and adaptability in managing your workflows. We're excited to see how this helps you in building and managing your projects more efficiently.
Add the ability to continue export even if some files failed
Sometimes export fails due to a bug or some other reason. And when it happened in previous versions of the Annotation Platform, the entire export batch failed.
Now, you have the option to carry on with the export process, even if some files encounter issues along the way. Instead of the all-or-nothing approach, you can choose to keep going and make the most of the files that are ready to roll.
At the end of the process, you'll receive an archive containing all the successfully exported files. But we didn't stop there - we'll also provide you with a list of the files that unfortunately couldn't make it, so you can diagnose and resolve the issues at your own pace.
This update gives you more control and reduces potential downtime, helping you stay efficient and effective in your work.
Preserve editor state in the URL
From now on, the current frame and selected object within the Editor will be encoded directly into the URL. This means if you need to refresh the page, or even if you want to share your work with a teammate, you won't lose your place - the editor will open up exactly where you left off, with the same frame and object already selected for you.
We believe this improvement will save you time, enhance your collaboration, and just generally make your editing experience more streamlined and enjoyable.
Preserve tables state in the URL
We've made a handy update to all pages that display a table (like Projects, Files, Users, different reports, and so on) on our Annotation Platform. We've added a feature to preserve your table's state right in the URL! That means your current filters, ordering, column configurations, totals, aggregations, and rows per page settings will all be stored directly in the URL.
What does this mean for you? It's now super easy to share and bookmark pre-configured tables, so you can quickly pick up where you left off or help a teammate see exactly what you're seeing. Plus, you no longer have to worry about losing all your filters and ordering if you refresh the page or navigate back and forth between pages using your browser's history buttons.
We're excited for this update to bring more convenience and efficiency to your workflows. We hope it makes your table navigation and sharing easier than ever!
Quick access to timetable reports
Add a sub-menu to Reports menu item listing all the reports, so the user will be able to get to the desired report immediately.
Clicking the “Reports” menu item itself will still get to the default Velocity report.
- Version in exported files changed from 1.4 to 1.5
Take advantage of the new level of data labeling.
