This has been our number one feature request for quite some time, now it’s finally here: Due Dates! You can now assign individual due dates to any card to make sure that you never forget about a deadline again.
Due dates are fully integrated into various Codecks systems:

Our sorting system has received some long-requested improvements to become truly stellar:
ctrl/cmd + clickto add additional sorting criteria and have more control of the exact sorting that you want to use
As before, your sorting preferences are stored on a deck and on a milestone level.
We’ve also created a manual entry and a video for you to enjoy:

The first version of Decky has been released almost 3 years ago. Since that time, Discord has added a lot of features: replies, threads and most recently slash commands. For our new update we’ve redesigned Decky to use the full power of Discord. We’ve also added new customization options and unique features. Our goal for Decky is to provide the best Discord community management experience in the world for both, you and your audience.
We’re on Product Hunt!
Product Hunt is like a reddit for tech products and we’ve submitted Decky there. If you have a Product Hunt account make sure to check it out and say hello! <3
Create Slash Commands via Decky
Rather than looking for pseudo commands like
!bug within messages, you can now create slash commands via the Decky Settings. Being a first-class citizen in the discord ecosystem, slash commands come with improved discoverability and UX for your audience compared to the old commands.
Each feedback message created by your audience will automatically set up a dedicated thread. This helps keeping follow-up conversations tidy. Codecks automatically syncs the full conversation within your card, so once you’re ready to work on it, all the relevant information is already present.
Richer Status Updates
Both, the original message and the leaderboard entries can be annotated with progress updates. This way your audience gets automatically updated if you make relevant changes. By default these are “Threshold reached”, “Card started” and “Card done”. Pro users can also enable annotations for “Card seen”, “Assigned to dev”, “Assigned to milestone” and “Moved to hand” to provide your audience with even more real-time insights. When the card status changes you may now send message updates to a channel or the specific thread.
And there’s more
/leaderboardsslash command: allowing you and your audience to see a private leaderboard for the time frame of your choice.
Decky’s new Slash commands cover all the functionality of the previous Discord Commands and Card Creators. We’re also realizing that Discord pushes its bot eco system to move towards slash commands and its interactions via recent API changes.
We’ve therefore made the decision to deprecate the previous interaction patterns. This means that legacy Commands an Card Creators will no longer be supported after June 30th, 2022.
While Card Creators are fairly trivial to replace with the new Slash Commands, we’ve provided a migration functionality for your commands. This ensures that feedback created with the old command can still be interacted with. If you have questions or concerns feel free to get in touch with us!
We’re excited for you to try this new version and let us know your feedback!
Our Discord bot Decky is now installed on more than 1,000 servers and has processed over 100,000 upvotes. For the start of 2022 we’re setting out to make Decky even better. We want to make it the BEST tool for tracking your Discord community feedback in a playful and efficient way. To reach that goal we’re making some big improvements.
The first thing we noticed is that leader boards can grow stale, which defeats their purpose. That’s why we’re adding new sorting options that allow you to sort leader boards by recent upvotes, instead of overall upvotes. This will shift the focus of leader boards towards what’s going on right now, similar to how Reddit works. While we were at it, we also reworked their appearance to be more readable.
This is just the first change of more that will be happening in the next couple of weeks.
The latest Codecks update is now live — here’s what changed!
Codecks gives you great project tracking, making sure that your production ship sails fast. Feedback from your community makes sure that your production is not only fast but also working towards the right direction. That’s what makes community building so instrumental for a lot of us.
We believe that combining project management and community building is the next step for modern teams:
You can enable upvotes for your team or the community within the project settings:
We’ve reworked our subscription engine to be easier to understand and to bill more accurately. Here’s what changed:
Esckey can be used for most sub views such as the sort panel, activity, metrics, etc.
