Calendar event invitations
We are now including calendar event invitations in the session confirmation emails. These .ics files can be opened with all major calendars providing a way to create calendar events with a single click for your PingPong sessions. These events are private, no one else will see your email address.
We send similar emails to the testers as well which will hopefully improve the show-up rate a bit further.
Compensation shown in project details
The compensation offered to the participants of your project is now shown at the first step of the set up process. For already started projects the compensation is visible in the left sidebar. This is particularly useful if you regularly run projects with different compensations.
Fixed the position of a few particularly pesky carets throughout the app.
New assign moderator feature: You can now assign different moderators to each session individually. This is perfect for teams to distribute the moderating tasks in a project however you like.
We have renamed the two session cancel options to better reflect their functionality.
Fixed an issue with longer transcriptions failing to load in time. Transcriptions should now process in about 5-15 minutes depending on session length.
Added the 'Other' gender option to the already existing options (female / male / rather not say).
We now require researcher accounts to have a much stronger password (at least 16 characters including special characters). We are planning to introduce more passwordless authentication methods in the future in addition to the currently available Google login.
We are now displaying messages to both participating if either party is having network issues during the call. The system will try to reconnect the participants automatically for 30 seconds in case their connection has been lost.
Fixed an issue where the in-call emoji markers were created with wrong timestamps.
Adjusted the call settings layout in Firefox.
