What is the Roadmap for Oversing?

- Testing: The purpose of our beta is to put our theory into practice and find any usability issues or bugs that we missed. Oversing is a very dynamic system and we cannot anticipate all of the possible uses customers might envision – beta will identify those issues.
- User Education: User Documentation, Training and Support.
- Ecommerce: Ecommerce integration, and instance automation.
- Performance (usual housekeeping) Hardening (security)
- Websockets: Expand websocket coverage to remaining individual pages. (only active on the workspace at present).
- Release Oversing to the market.
- Federation (internal feature)
- Gantt Chart improvements
- Timeline View (like Gantt, but cards instead of bars, and without dependencies.)
- Native Spreadsheet Content Entity
- “Simple View” simple, single level task list.
- Custom Properties
- Add Amazon Full Text Search
The Profiling System (Learning about you, for you)
Depends upon Federation to collect and aggregate individual Metrics.
- Personality Surveys, Metrics and Comparisons
- Dashboards (overviews) in Page Headers
Oversing’s Post-Email Email – The Replacement for Email
- Secure, Encrypted, Messaging and Documents, always within context, and with responses.
Sales and Content Management
- Expose the Sales Management Functionality, meaning goals, budgets, iterations and campaigns.
- Commissions Engine (Extending sub-ledgers Time, Expenses, Adjustments, Transfers, to include Commissions). Add Commission rule engine. (We were not able to complete the rule engine for the beta)
- Expose the CRM functionality. The entities are already in the system but we have not propagated the set of fields that track sales goals, commits, and actuals. We are still questioning whether we want to add scripting to the call process, as we are uncomfortable associating Oversing with that kind of market. We will undoubtably submit to the pressure of financial opportunity but at present we feel that leads, opportunities, and deals of relationship sales is our initial market objective, and not call centers. (yes, we know. There is a lot of money to be made there. But we would have to feel we had provided an interesting solution that improves upon the poor service provided by those kinds of systems. We know how that kind of system looks because companies currently utilize a more ‘human’ process, but those companies have higher margins. In other words, if you wouldn’t see Apple do it, I don’t think we want to put it into our product – regardless of how much money it would make.
- Content Management: Content Management Tab, Content Authoring, and WordPress Plugin Integration for Conducting Research, Content Creation, Authoring Documentation and Wiki Contribution. Including the ‘Scrivenings’ method that brings agile processes to the process of authoring content. This provides the greatest existing range of possibilities for the creation, presentation and management of content. For those of us that write a great deal there has been a revolution in the content authoring business that has left the Word and Wiki eras behind. We think this will be one of the best uses of oversing.
- Single-Stack Card View: We want to add single stack option to the Board view, so that cards are arranged in a vertical list rather than horizontal rows. By default, Oversing displays an agile board, and maintains a board order, but attempts to show as many cards as possible. The ‘Trello’ view of the world, is a list of cards, not a set. Boards allow users to choose the order of their work, and lists suggest the order of the work. And there are many people who prefer that metaphor when working.
