Your Suggestions with Uservoice

We’ve switched the Passpack suggestions box to the Uservoice platform. Check it out, you can see the status of your suggestions, as well as converse with us about what’s going on.

You can access the forum directly by connecting to Uservoice. Or from the Suggestions & Feature Requests link in the Help Center, or from the Feedback tab on the main website.

Your Votes Are Counted

We surveyed all the suggestions you’ve made to date, across our various systems – suggestions box, help tickets, personal emails. The votes you’ve cast have all (hopefully) been migrated. No need to re-vote.

Guess What, We Do That Already

The main reason we opted to switch was so that we could actually reply to you about your ideas – especially when you suggest a feature that Passpack already has. Here’s a few ideas that we didn’t migrate over to the new system.

“It would be nice to be able to organize passwords in folders or something”“organize password in a multi-level folder tree” - “create password categories”

No folders, we have tags. We even have related tags for an easier drill down. You can view them as a cloud, or a list, or inline in your password table. This should cover all your folder and sub-folder needs. Le Roi est mort, vive le Roi!

“Allow import of tab-delimited text files”

You can use the CSV import option. On the second screen, change the Choose the field separator option from “comma” to “tab”. And you’re ready to go. We’ll change the term “CSV” to make that a clearer.

“On the startup options page, if I choose Password as my primary tab, please add a sub option: Show only Favorite entries. “

Um, that’s there.

“Create a user voice site for Passpack”

Done.

Have Mercy!

We take all your suggestions seriously into consideration. Serious consideration takes lots of time, and planning. We are a two person team and sometimes get bogged down. So bear with us: we’re listening, working and will keep truckin’.

Thanks everyone for all your support and suggestions! You folks are truly fantastic.

Drill Down on Related Tags

Here’s a cool new feature for you, hot of the presses: related tags. Click a tag anywhere in your password list, and you’ll see the related tags with a +

Everytime you click a tag marked with a +, Passpack will filter your list to show you only those entries that contain all the tags you’ve chosen.

This feature is available in either list or cloud view in your tags pane, or directly by clicking the a tag in your password list.

In the example, I first clicked a tag called sothis (a freelance client of mine from days gone). Not only do I get an immediate glance of all the tags that are related to sothis, but I can click on to drill down directly to the entries I’m looking for.

Just click Show all to go back to your full list of tags.

Sub-Folders vs. Related Tags

I’m an organization nut. I’ve spent endless hours in the past obsessing over how best to organize my folders in on my desktop, in my box.net account, everywhere. Yet there always seems to be some items which refuse to sit in just one category.

Related tags are like sub-folders on steroids… just without the old fashioned directory icon. You get to organize every which way. Even those pesky I-belong-everywhere-at-once items can be tackled in a clean and simple way.

Gosh, I think I’ll start a No More Folders movement. Credit where credit is due, Delicious is the granddaddy of related tags.

Ideas for IT Workers

This is really powerful  for those of you who work with multiple clients, on multiple projects. For example,  if you tag entries with client name, project name and type of information (ex. hosting, ftp, crm, etc) then you can do any of the following searches very quickly:

  • Looking for all ftp accounts for a given client:
    Click the client-name tag, then drill down to the ftp tag.
    .
  • Looking for hosting account login for a specific project:
    Click hosting tag, then drill down to the client-name, drill down again to the project-name.

The possibilities are really endless! Have fun, and let us know how you plan to use the related tags drill down to organize your account.
