In Spring 43, we added our group chat feature, uploaded Elements, and found a graph database solution. The team made changes to People You May Know and addressed some general bug fixes throughout the application.
Sprint 43 Feedback
We resolved the issue around users being taken into their latest open chat when initiating a new message to a friend. This action now either creates a new thread or take the user to a current thread they already have open with that friend.
Users need the ability to search for friends. The scroll bars on the home page and chat sidebar conflict with one another, making it difficult for users to control them individually. The chat scrollbars should be the default.
We need to move the “Update Group” button to the bottom of the page and change the current behavior when a user performs an edit. The user currently has to click the back button to get back to their chat after saving.
People You May Know
We improved this feature using data from a graph database for Cassandra and Elasticsearch. Information appears between posts and never shows up as first or last. It generates a friends of friends list for the user.
We may update this feature to show users potential friends based on common interests. Other updates we’re considering include a “See More..” accordion option for recommendations and adding default content when the user cancels or clears suggestions.
Elements were added to audio tracks, videos, and albums. Users can now filter based on the media type. We added an accordion to the Glance page and made it possible to drag and rearrange elements.
The users will receive the following capabilities in future sprints:
- Customizing images, names, descriptions, tags, and order
- Viewing lyric details
- Viewing image details
Users can’t access key features in the sidebar.
Sharing a creation with others causes images to overlap the compose field when using a Safari browser. The issue may tie back to using Flexbox for the CSS.
We plan to add Play/Pause buttons across the entire site. The team also needs to go over the designs for Saunter content. Items we still need to address include:
- Removing track numbers
- Filtering duplicate songs
- Cleaning up the content cards
- Possibly placing YouTube videos into a lightbox scroller
Other items to review include the detail pages for streamers using Twitch, pulling Twitch into the content pages, uploading and editing elements, handling payments, Feature pages content cards, and some additional Amazon styling edits.
