New release Amara 1.2.1

We’re excited to share with you the infrastructure upgrades, as well as the new team dashboard and user profiles. We have some under-the-hood improvements around the corner that will make way for the new editor and streamlined workflow system.

Team dashboard
New team landing page will direct users towards tasks (or untranslated/uncaptioned videos, if workflows are off), based on their personal language settings. Shows user’s active tasks at top, and will generally help people find relevant subtitling jobs for any team, even if most of the recent videos have been subtitled.

Updated user dashboard and profiles
Users can now see all the activity they’ve done over time, plus have a nicer layout with larger user avatar (image) and list of videos they’ve added to Amara.

Updated message area
Users can now see more details for inbox + sent messages, plus can mark all messages as read.

In the coming weeks, we’re about to have a bunch of new automated testing functionality come online, which will speed up our test/release process even more. We’ll keep you posted!
