New Confluence feature: Hover page cards

A new improvement to Confluence is being rolled out over June 2021 - A hover cards. When you hover over the page title in the Confluence menu then the card appears with basic information about the page including:

  • full-page title,
  • excerpt,
  • who was the creator of the page,
  • the last time the page was updated,
  • and if the page has any likes or comments.

And if that wouldn't be enough there is also a quick edit button that saves you a click if you want to edit the page directly.

Tempo to enter new ecosystems - Appointing Shannon Mason As VP

Tempo announced bringing Shannon Mason to help with expansion in new markets outside Atlassian. With a background in neuroscience and psychology, Miss Mason has lead Product Teams for GitLab,  Digital.ai, and Rally Software.

Tempo is the largest best-selling Marketplace Partner for time tracking and planning.  Time management tools are usually clunky so it's no wonder there is demand for Tempo to expand in new markets. And it seems they're already working on some exciting partnerships so we'll be waiting for updates in the next few months!

The Atlassian Vendor Sketch Plugin

The Atlassian design team open-sourced Atlassian vendor sketch plugin and in this article, you can learn about recent changes and how to use them...and why.

One of the changes includes populating designs with real-like data instead of lorem ipsum or project names like Project 1, Project 2, etc.  This helps discover design problems sooner before the designs go to development and address them. For example problems with the overflowing text, paddings, and so on.

Another interesting improvement is a new avatar pack that is generated based on the Nvidia paper about GAN-created faces so you don't need to worry about licenses for your pictures.  

New release of Atlassian Vendor Sketch plugin includes GAN-created avatars.

These are some really nice improvements that save quite some time during the design and that help prepare designs to be also shared publicly without you needing to worry about anything.
