We think the concepts for the new Hand v2 are fairly unique, so we figured it’s time to make it look unique as well 💄
In addition, we’ve reworked the process for adding a card to the hand from within a deck or milestone. Rather than directly appending a card to a hand, we’re opening an overlay showing the person’s hand, allowing to reorganize it and dragging the opened card into the right place.
We’ve also changed the look of the activity feed in the hand to accommodate for the dark background as well as come up with new way to present inaccessible cards 🕵️♀️.
We’ve been working on a sweet little tool to help game developers to keep an eye on their Steam reviews. Rather than constantly hitting F5 on your Steam page to get the latest reviews, you can setup Steamy to connect to your Discord server. Enter all the games for which you’d like to track reviews and Steamy will continuously check them and post the latest reviews to a Discord channel of your choice.
Steamy is free and works for Codecks and non-Codecks users alike. You can access the Open Beta version here: www.codecks.io/steam-bot

After months of working on it and tuning the mechanics, we’re happy to announce that one of the biggest changes to Codecks reached its beta stage! ✨✨✨
The new hand aims to answer the question of what am I and my team members going to work on next? Every team member gets 7-28 hand slots (the exact number is configurable by you) to signal what their next cards are. You are able to inspect your co-worker’s hands and drag and drop cards into the right position as you see fit.
In addition we’re adding much more focus onto ongoing conversations, putting them right into your hand view.
The previous hand behaviour can now be accessed via “Bookmarks”.
You can go to “Organisation settings” > “Features” to activate it. You can move back to the classic hand any time. We eventually will be moving to the new hand for everyone. So if you have questions or concerns feel free to share.
We’ve also updated our Manual entry to give you an overview of the changes.
We’ve given your Open Decks a fresh look to make sure your page looks as nice as possible no matter what kind of assets you have available.
You are able to migrate manually from today! before we’ll apply the new layout to every open deck by 30.06.2021.
To migrate, head to your project settings and find the “Improved design available!” section.
Probably one of the better hidden functionalities within Codecks is now much more apparent: If you wan’t to leave a conversation, you no longer need to click your own avatar in the participant list. Instead we’re now offering a big “Opt out of conversation” button.
Nothing changed on the outside, but we’ve rebuild our notification engine. When you perform an action like writing a comment, you don’t have to wait until all notifications are generated before the server responds and shows your comment. Instead notifications are now generated after it processed your request. This should speed up interactions in bigger teams quite a bit.
While we’re at the topic of performance optimizations: moving 100s of cards to a different deck could take several minutes. After some profiling we found the slow queries and could speed up the process considerably. It should now take ~1s per 100 cards moved.
We’ve added a “Get notified of updates” section to the header of each Open Decks page. This allows anyone to sign up via either Discord or email and password to then select whether they want to be notified daily or weekly if interesting updates are happening.
The digest email will contain links to new cards as well as cards that have been started or marked as done.
This feature is available to all regular Codecks users as well without having to create an additional sign up.
So feel free to check out the projects on open.codecks.io to see whether there’s some interesting projects you’d like to get updates for!
