Upcoming releases: improve performance as a Team

In many ways, being successful in improving performance can’t happen without collaboration. It’s challenging to prioritise and address issues that teams, managers and leaders aren’t aware of. It will be equally tricky to move the needle on performance when it’s not apparent where your sites are currently at. Raising awareness about performance and its impact on user experience and conversions is critical to success, too.

After carefully watching teams of various sizes, shapes and priorities, we are revamping how collaboration happens in Calibre. With Teams, you will be able to organise your tracking, assign areas of work to relevant groups of people and share monitoring data in a more controlled way.

Preview of Teams in the Calibre interface: creating an API Access Token, Teams list and Member page.

With the initial release of Teams here’s what you will be able to do:

  • create Teams and add people to them
  • assign Sites to Teams
  • move Sites between Teams
  • invite users with a read-only Viewer role
  • manage API access more with Personal Access Tokens
  • be notified when Sites are added to your Team (opt-in)

Teams will bring overall improvements to Calibre’s interface, especially surrounding managing access to data and people within your organisation.

We already have a roadmap for extending Teams that include more fine-tuned notifications, sharing options and setting KPI metrics relevant to your goals. We expect Teams to be released within the next few months.

Lighthouse 6.5.0

Our Test Agents now use the latest Lighthouse release, 6.5.0. As always, we upgrade to stable Lighthouse releases as they become available so that you can leverage the newest version.

We are already planning the upgrade to Lighthouse 7 once we fully assess its stability.

Using Image Actions? Update your configuration file

Image Actions, our GitHub Action for automatically compressing images in your Pull Requests, is now using the main branch instead of master.

To avoid breakages in the workflow, update your configuration file to mention the main branch.
