Product Update – November 26, 2018 – Database Architecture

I hope you all in the U.S. had a great Thanksgiving holiday.

Recent Updates

Database architecture. From a user perspective, our recent work might feel a bit boring or irrelevant. That’s because most of it is happening on the back end, where we’re making the way that bookings happen more flexible. This will enable a number of the features y’all have requested, and which we’ve been talking about for a while, such as:

  • Work spaces for different types of users, e.g. students, professionals, and work styles, e.g. video on/off, sound on/off
  • Blocking
  • Favorites

Educational onboarding video. New users are now greeted with a video tutorial showing how to join and conduct a Focusmate meeting.

You can watch the video below.

Planned Updates

This is work planned for the week of November 26th-December 3rd, 2018.

Migration from old system to new system. While there are a number of tasks we’re working on, the upshot is that we’re setting up the new, flexible database architecture to run alongside the old one for about a week, to make sure it’s working. This also requires hooking up the new system to ancillary tools like calendar invites and emails.
