Rearranged Dashboard Puts Emphasis on Tags

The Dokkio team has rearranged the dashboard on the home screen to put a greater emphasis on tagging and organizing.

The “All Tags” and “Tag Dropdown” (which defaults to Category tags) tiles are now presented at the top of the dashboard, while the “Sources” and “All Files” tiles are presented at the bottom, shown below:

Dokkio tags are a powerful way to automatically organize your files and content by category or context, and the goal of this change is to ensure users find, interact with, and utilize this feature.

Sidebar Now Supports Long Sessions

Dokkio Sidebar 3.1.1 now maintains a “stickier” connection to your Dokkio account, in response to user feedback about Sidebar’s “silent logout” behavior.

When Sidebar is enabled but not connected to your Dokkio account, a small alert appears in your browser window, asking you to login. You may encounter this alert when you next use your browser. Once logged in, the connection remains for up to 30 days after your last interaction. You can explicitly logout via the Dokkio toolbar icon, or temporarily disable Sidebar using the Chrome “Manage Extensions” (puzzle piece) icon. Sidebar 3.1.1 is live in the Chrome Store now, and your Sidebar will automatically upgrade.

Expanded Sidebar Capabilities

The Dokkio team has been hard at work improving and adding features to the Sidebar in response to user feedback. Here’s a look at the latest:

One-click to edit: Docs and Sheets can now be opened in their native environment with a simple hover-and-click action.

File management: Rename a file. If you have connected hundreds of files from Box, Dropbox, Drive, or even local files, saving you time in searching for those files and making that quick update. 

Organization: Add tags (and sense!) to any of the above without navigating to another page or even knowing where the file resides. 

Expanded Tag Suggestions: In addition to comparing the active web page to your existing Dokkio tags, the Sidebar compares it to suggested tags and shows them in the “About This Page” panel. It’s easy to accept (or reject) those suggested tags for that particular page and for expanded auto-tagging, too!

If you haven’t tried the Dokkio Sidebar yet, check out our Google Chrome Store page and click “Add to Chrome.” If you want to dig a little deeper first, see screenshots and read reviews on our Product Hunt page.

Sidebar Updated to 3.0.2

Sidebar 3.0.2 is now the active version in the Chrome Store.

So, what’s new?
The search tab of the Sidebar floating panel now includes a checkbox that allows users to set the behavior of the search panel.

Users sometimes collapse the Sidebar to get it out of the way, and then forget to manually re-expand it. With this update, users can close the Sidebar and it will still be there when they search next.

The Sidebar is automatically re-opened whenever a MultiSearch that yields Dokkio results is carried out (e.g. as a side-effect of a Google search or Dropbox search). To change this behavior, uncheck the box.
