Announcing Dokkio Sidebar 3.2 with Major Enhancements to Tagging

We’re very pleased to announce Sidebar 3.2, which makes tagging easier and better, with:
Tag suggestions:  See Dokkio’s tag suggestions, without leaving Sidebar.  For example if you tag files by Company, Sidebar shows you there are more suggested Company-Tags, and lets you easily accept or reject each one – all within the Sidebar pane

Page Tagging suggestions:  When you view a page, Sidebar’s “About this Page” panel now includes matches to suggested tags. You can easily tag and clip the page, and add the new tag to your actively-used tags, all with a single click.

Tag management: Within Sidebar, you can view all active tags and tagged content, drop an existing tag, or add new tags (such as new Project or Customer tags when you start a Project or win a Customer), and Dokkio will start auto-tagging.
If you have already installed Dokkio Sidebar, your extension will automatically update to version 3.2.  If you have yet to install Dokkio Sidebar, you can do so for free by visiting the Google Chrome store, linked below:
Install Dokkio Sidebar
Please note: We’re currently rolling out and testing an enhanced tagging foundation, and these new Sidebar capabilities are built on it. If you created an account after May 2022, your account already uses the new foundation; you can simply start using the new features.

If your account was created prior to May 2022 and you have not been part of our beta program and want to try these new Sidebar features, please contact; we will enable them for you. We plan to migrate the entire user base in the next couple of weeks, and will update you again when that is complete.

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.
