Release Notes 0.1 – July 2023
With the recent release of our new UI and UX, we have made the Papirfly Product Suite even stronger, better and faster.
From minor improvements in response to customer feedback, to major exciting features like a completely new asset picker (DAM-plugin) all users will love, we also introduce serverless transcoding – meaning you can upload pictures and videos five times faster than ever before.
We’ve outlined all changes with their release dates below. Enjoy.
(Released 10 July 2023)
Unified user interface
The application formerly known as Brand Hub is now named Point. Your new unified interface can be seen in select modal settings screens – Quicklinks, Top menu, Side navigation, Footer and Extended footer. Further settings screens to be released as we approach Unification in November.
New WYSIWYG Editor
We’ve replaced the CK Editor with Quill Editor. This provides a significant change for Point Editors, as the menu is now included within the text block instead of floating above it. This is a response to feedback of the menu obstructing the section controls, and now provides a better experience for all users. Each of the menu items remain the same, with some icon changes – for example, “quote” and highlight text colour picker. Read more here.
New DAM plugin to select assets
Experience a significant improvement with our new DAM plugin. All users can seamlessly access this feature across your platform, effortlessly locating and selecting their desired images and assets. All customers – including those not yet on DAM 2.0 – are able to access this enhancement, providing an improved user experience, heightened flexibility and time savings, eliminating frustrations of previously limited views and searches.

Unified user interface
Boasting our improved user interface (UI), our DAM application has a new name – Place. Adopting the new unified design, sharing a look and feel across all of our products, this aesthetic improvement provides a more pleasing and seamless user experience.
Improving on traditional setups logic, serverless transcoding converts media files, optimising for devices, streaming, and our template engine, Produce. Rules are defined – as files are uploaded, the platform auto-allocates resources, ensuring efficiency, scaling, and cost reduction by paying for processing time instead of for idle servers. Our API configures output formats, bitrates, resolutions, and more. This new service is five times faster, scaling from 15 to 1000 instances via AWS Lambda.
Change video thumbnail
Decide the exact moment within a video to create your thumbnail from. Serving as the visual representation of the video in the DAM view, this update provides greater speed and freedom in assigning an image to help portray the essence of each video asset.
When uploading an asset, his feature enhances asset details by reading the GPS information, and can pinpoint and display where the added content was captured – providing a map and valuable geographical context of uploaded media across your enterprise.

Approval projects – Unified user interface
Our Plan application’s two main key services – Co-op projects and Approval projects – now both are updated according to the new unified user user interface (UI), offering a better experience for everybody using these services.
Co-op projects – Date range settings
Enhancing the efficiency of Co-op projects, the application offers a date range filter, streamlining focus on specific work items in both a timeline and list view. Users can select a Dynamic or Calendar display range. The Calendar range enables users to determine a ‘from’ and ‘to’ date for checking specific time periods. The Dynamic display range utilises ‘start’ and ‘end’ filters – valuable for users who have to operate every day within a specific dynamic time range e.g. One month forward from ‘today’.
Co-op projects – List-view to display work items
Increasing the possibilities within Co-op projects, the List view provides users with the ability to switch between a timeline and list view – ideal for users requiring an up-to-date overview of multiple work items. Different from the timeline’s hierarchy, the list view showcases items in a table format with customisable columns, displaying names and template values. For SiteAdmin users, ‘Save listview’ displays a new default view for the whole company, actioned via the ‘Apply & Publish’ button.
Co-op projects – Modal window display mode
The new Modal window is an alternative to the side panel view, providing more efficient possibilities for users to work on a Co-op project. Users achieve a better overview of the item detail, and are able to include more information. Three types of layout – one wide column, two columns with a wider left side, two columns with a wider right side – can be set by Admin users in the Template settings, with possibilities for both side and modal window layouts in each template.
Co-op projects – Place assets editable from Plan
When Place assets are connected to an Item, users can now open the asset detail and directly update it without switching applications. Users with relevant rights can operate with the assigned assets directly in Plan’s campaign or activity detail.
