Introducing Teams!

Whenever you launch a startup with a small team you have to make feature sacrifices, things that you can ‘build in later’ and when building Little Warden, Teams / Additional users was one of them.

Last year during the global pandemic (remember that, I’m glad that’s over and done with) we decided to implement them but it turns out, that’s a lot harder than you think!

Introducing Teams for Little Warden

Here is what you get

  • Individual logins and passwords (no more swapping post it notes!)
  • Granular access levels limiting actions or projects 

Here is what you don’t get

  • Per member pricing – Unlimited Users included on all packages (apart from freelancer)
  • Team Members cannot modify billing.

How it works

When you create a team member in Little Warden you give them a role, that role has specific abilities and access rights, you can have as many roles as you want, but typically during our testing, most companies have let all users have full access to everything.

What about notification emails already in the system

This was a difficult one I’ll be honest, whilst the original plan was just to instantly convert them into team members, we’d have to assume permissions for all of our accounts and that’s just not possible. 

So anyone that is a notification user will get an email allowed them to request Conversion into a team member, when this is clicked, the account owner gets a notification and a direct link to give the user a role.

I wish we could solve this easier but we couldn’t and once everyone is upgraded it won’t be a problem anymore!

As usual, everyone on the team is invited to a quick one2one walk through of the system and capabilities, there will be a direct booking link in your invitation email!

Little Update 2021 #1

You know how at the start of 2020 I said “I’m going to write more on the company blog and ensure that we send out a regular newsletter…”

I tell you what I didn’t account for, a global pandemic, so if you’ll excuse me I’m gonna give myself a bit of a pass on that one.

But 2021, New Year, New me, and as I type this from my living room, in lockdown, whilst Scarlet does her Daily Cosmic Kids Yoga and BBC Bitesize, it would be easy for me to coast back into the ‘other things to do’ mindset but NO, THE INTERNET NEEDS MY VAGUELY FUNNY AND SOMETIMES IN THIRD PERSON CONTENT.

Little Updates

I’ve just finished a plan for what we are working on for the next 6 months and if we stick to it, then we’ve got a very exciting few months for Little Warden coming up (and since I’m not telling you the plan, if we don’t stick to it, you’ll never know!

What’s Next?

But what I will tell you is that you’ll see some nice updates to our User Management system and custom content extraction very very soon (maybe even this week?)

Family Updates

We are fine, for those of you not in the UK, we are back under lockdown which means that we have a four year old in the house who expects to be entertained, educated and fed during the day which is slightly distracting but it is what it is, we do see the light at the end of the tunnel

Next Family Trip?

hahahahahahahahahahahahahhaah

That’s a wrap!

Thanks

Real Dom, Heather, Scarlett and of course, Robot Dom
