They say God is in the details. Simplicity certainly is, and we just introduced two changes to the Fluxiom interface that should make it much easier to search and manage your Assets without missing a single beat.
We have long provided a Reset button to clear selected tags, empty the Search field, and generally return to an “all-items” view of your data. It is still here, but it has been moved and redesigned so that its behaviour is evident: look for it at all times to the left of the Search field.
No matter what you may be doing or which mode you may be in, a click on this button will return your Assets view to its defaults, showing all your data with the most recent items on top. “Boom!” — as someone would have said.
Your Assets view will now refresh in real time, as apps or colleagues upload new files to your account. You no longer need to refresh anything manually to see the latest data.
Of course, it would make no sense to move files around when you need your Assets view to remain stable — for example when editing metadata or performing a search. Therefore, if you have selected items or have opened a panel, we will put up a small red badge on the Refresh button instead to let you know that new files are awaiting you:
Bringing real-time updates to Fluxiom without sacrificing performance (or security) meant re-engineering some core components. Expect further enhancements over time and more real-time features now that the necessary groundwork has been completed.
In the meantime, we hope these two tweaks empower you to manage your files with greater ease. As always, we look forward to hearing your feedback!
