As many of you are aware that we performed a major upgrade of MigrationDesk during the last weekend. The important parts took almost 4 hours followed by several minor tweaks here and there. I am still looking for any existing bugs, but fortunately, haven't come across a lot.

As with each major upgrade, new features are being added to MD on top of the regular maintenance. This time some of you might find the followings useful.

Push Notifications:

You can now optionally enable push notification which will give you a, well, push notification whenever you receive a new reply in a thread you are following. This will come as browser notification in your computer and regular notification in your mobile devices. Unfortunately, this feature does not work with iPhone (because of some internal limitation of OSX) and Safari in Mac (again, some design limitation of WebKit). Hopefully, this will be solved in the near future.

In the meantime, other users can enable this by following below steps

Step 1: Click Enable push notification on the notice shown at the bottom of your view

3228




Step 2: Click allow to send browser notification

3229



Step 3: A confirmation message will be shown (if you use Chrome) as below. Click on Close button (or don't, as it will disappear after a few seconds) unless you want to fine tune in the settings (very rarely someone would need that).

3230




Once you do that, you'll see a notification like this anytime someone post in a thread you follow

3231

Bookmarks:

You can now bookmark your favorite post, just as you do in your browser. The advantage is, the bookmark will be saved in your account, and no matter from where you login to MD, you'll have the bookmark list in your account.

Step 1: To bookmark a post, click on the small bookmark icon on the top-right corner of a post

3232



Step 2: In the pop up that follows, you can optionally leave a note/label for yourself

3233




To see all the bookmarks, click on your name on top of the page and browse the Bookmarks tab. You can also delete any existing bookmarks from the settings icon (wheel).

An improved reaction system:

The reaction system has been upgraded and implemented throughout the site (including photo gallery). So, next time you want to Congratulate someone, or want to say Thanks, better use that reaction rather than posting a one-word reply!

3235




You can always check the reactions to a post by clicking on the reaction bar at the bottom of the post

3236


Upon clicking:

3237




You can also check all the reactions you have received from your profile page

3238

Change in Timeline:

On popular request, the timeline is now displayed in tabular format.

Furthermore, the individual timeline is now also visible from the mobile devices, below the signature

3239



Finally, immigration and citizenship timelines are now separate everywhere for the obvious reason.

Consider before posting:
  • Do not post the same thing in multiple places.
  • No personal contact and/or non-English phrase is allowed.
  • Always post in a relevant thread or open a new one.
  • Better to use the reactions in a post to congratulate/thank.
