I’ve been stingy with the blog posts as of late, so I wanted to drop in with some news on what we’ve been up to, and what’s coming up next – Groups & Localization!
For the past 5 months or so I’ve been traveling, while Francesco has been preparing some important Passpack changes. Let’s ignore the traveling since you can read all about that on my personal blog, and jump right into the exciting new stuff.
Just one small word, but chock full of Passpack power. The next update you’ll see to your account is the ability to share not just with single people, but with entire groups. This is incredibly useful for provisioning passwords, for example, to an entire department.
Right before the official release, we’ll stock up the Help Center with how-to articles for you. But here’s the gist:
- Add a shared user to a group and their account gets populated with all the password entries that have been previously shared with that group.
- All changes are automatically propagated across the group.
- Remove someone from a group and all group-shared password entries will disappear from his/her account.
For those of you wishing you had Passpack in your own language – your moment is coming.
Following the Groups release, we’ll be finishing off a few smaller features to round out the both the free and business packages. The next big thing you can expect though will be a localization tool. We build the tool, and you (the community) can translate until your hearts delight.
Until then, welcome me back, and get ready for 2-3 months of intensive development.
