    And please drop by the Introductions thread and say hi.

Preview: Campaign Logger vNext (beta access)

Here's a video I made that shows some of the new stuff coming in vNext.

I also made this video to show beta testers the current state to help you navigate around.

I you choose to particpiate in the beta, the link is below and you can log into the beta using your normal Campaign Logger credentials.

We are looking for feedback. Please post your feedback in the thread below. Thanks!



Here's how to access the beta:

Addendum
Some corrections and additional notes:
  • Install App: Offline work is prepared, but not live at the moment. Currently, you just install it to start it directly from your app menu instead of browsing to the web site.
  • The Refresh button is not updating the app but just reloading data from the server - in case you have old data still in your local cache. This will be removed in the future and be an automated background task associated with the above offline feature.
  • Download/Upload: Campaign Entries are currently not included yet but will be in the future
  • Images: there will be an upload function in the future
  • Character Limits: Log Entry 2,500; Campaign Entry: 250,000
Use the New Generator Service
There's a slick new tool for building your custom generators.

Use it as a standalone tool, or to feed dynamic generators into your Campaign Logger vNext account.

Besides the mentioned issues, the recent update includes a few new features:
  • (not yet visible in CL vNext, but working in the "old" CL): Dice codes expand dropping highest/lowest results
    • 1H2/5d20: take highest die after dropping the first two highest dice of five rolled twenty-side dice
    • 1L2/5d20: take lowest die after dropping the first two lowest dice of five rolled twenty-side dice
  • Search and Replace Tags aka Change Tags, everywhere, look for this symbol:

  • Pin favorite logs to the start page, look for this symbol:

Also, using double quotes in iOS doesn't work. I suspect the characters used on the iOS keyboard are different (they use the inverted quotes on the first use), so tagging things with more than 1 word also doesn't work on iOS. Hopefully that's fixable with some minor tweaks to which characters serve the "quote" function on Logger's end.
Will be in the next update: Smart punctuation will now be replaced if not turned off in settings
 
I think we should standardize the Campaign Tag create/edit field.

In logs you need to use double quotes for multi-word tags.

In Campaign Tag editor, if you add quotes it creates a tag with quotes.

I propose quotes be supported in Campaign Tag editor and function the same as log entries do.

I will just remove additional quotes - just to be sure that if you forget them you don't end up with invalid tags.
 
Ah ok. Got it.

the trash can is beside the edit box, not the title. So I got confused and was thinking trash just deletes the content, not the entry itself. Thanks!

is it possible to save an in progress note to local storage?

i thought i was focused on the note text area, pressed backspace, and the browser went back, losing the note in progress.
