This month’s update includes some code refactoring, new help videos and an updated company back story. Read on for more details.

Code refactoring: Planning for the future

The Software-as-a-Service space, which Intervals occupies, is changing at a rapid pace. To stay ahead of current trends and technologies, we sometimes have to rebuild portions of the app. We’ve rebuilt some key components of the home page calendar in preparation for some new features we’ll be adding.

Intervals recently turned seven, which is relatively old in web-based software years. And we plan on being around for at least another seven years. This commitment requires us to throw away some of the old code and rebuild it.

These changes won’t be noticeable when you log in next time. But often times it’s the unseen areas of the app, the grit and the grime, that make the overall user experience fluid. As for those new feature, we’ll be sure to dress them up real nice when we launch them.

New help videos

If you’ve watched any of our videos recently you may have noticed they are outdated. We’ve been re-recording our help videos to bring them up-to-date. The user interface, and many of Intervals features, have evolved in the last few months and years. Videos are only a snapshot in time, and we want them to reflect the most current user experience.

The following videos have been updated:
