We just updated the timeline shown on many Lobster objects. The new version makes it much easier to have a quick overview of all lobbying activities for your organisation.

Relevant events, actions and TODOs are shown on a timeline. In order for a TODO to be shown it needs to have a set deadline, then it will be shown on the date of it’s deadline. When a TODO is completed it is now hidden from the timeline. This makes the timeline much less cluttered when a TODO is converted to an action and marked done at the same time.

Each timeline has two formats, a small summary and a full version. The summary has maximum 5 or 10 items on it depending on the location. Actions, TODOs and events around today are chosen for the compact version, incomplete TODOs are shown as a reminder until they are completed. The full version lists all activities relevant to the current object.
