July - August 2019

July and August saw the deployment of a series of major upgrades to the website. One of the big upgrades was the addition of ‘Pagination’ across the website (those clickable page numbers at the bottom of a page) including on the Resources page, Stories page, Things to do, the Local Government Forum and on the Dashboard.

We also deployed a significant upgrade to the website search functionality.

First we improved the ‘basic search’ (found up the top of each page) to add a loading spinner on submitting a search query. We grouped results by ‘content type’ in the following order: Organisation, Resource, Story, Things to do, Rewards shop items & grants, Other pages. We also added the ability to sort by ‘Relevance’, ‘Alphabetically’, ‘Date’ new-old, ‘Date’ old-new as well as showing three results for each ‘content type’ based on the selected sort option. We also added a ‘View more’ button for each content type. Clicking on this loads a new page based on the results, which is paginated with ten results per page.

Next we added an ‘Advanced search’ feature, with the ability to filter results by ‘Audience type’, ‘Resource category’, ‘Story category’, ‘Activity’, ‘Rewards/Grants’ and between a date range. At the same time, we also added a ‘Resources’ page search box, based on the most relevant result. Speaking of resources we added the ability to feature certain resources and they can now be tagged across multiple categories, which will make it much easier to find the resource that you’re looking for.

Finally we upgraded our Journey Planner to add a date and time picker so you can plan ahead for a journey as well as adding a ‘Plan journey’ button and various mobile view tweaks. We also built it, so that when you click on an event on ‘Things to Do’ page or a placemark on the Journey Planner, the ‘arrive by’ time will be pre populated based on the event time. Pretty cool huh?

May - June 2019

In May and June we implemented a major upgrade to the 'Community' landing page with a dynamic Statistics’ content block and ‘Activity & pledges live feed’ added. We also added a ‘Featured places and events’ content block as well as ‘Feedback, stories of change’ section that displays comments and feedback that we've received from Your Move participants in community-based projects.

We also replaced the ‘Whats On’ calendar of events page with a new Things to do directory of both events and places of interest. We added a 'Captcha security system on all website forms, fixed an issue with saving stories to draft and lastly, we implemented more accurate behaviour change calculations across the various reports on the website based on the ‘Odds Ratio’ formula. (see FAQ’s for more details).

March - April 2019

March and April saw Phase 2 of some important changes made to the Local Government Portal including the ability to view the overall behaviour change results for all schools or all workplaces in a local government area. The ability to analyse or compare in detail, each survey completed and compare the behaviour change results between any two surveys for schools or workplaces in the same local government area, or across different LGA’s.

Finally, we made a very fundamental improvement to the website, by deploying a far more accurate way of calculating behaviour change % based on the ‘Odds Ratio’ formula. See FAQ’s page for more details.

January - February 2019

We really hit the ground running in January 2019 with a long list of functionality added including implementation of smart form fields at signup to identify and separate Your Move intensive program residents (currently Town of Bassendean) from regular website users.

We also added some major updates to the invite only 'Local Government Portal' such as the ability for LGA officers to see a contact list of all other ‘Champions’, the LG Forum is now the homepage with smarter pagination, the ability for LGA officers to submit events to 'What's On' and smarter automated emails.

For a better user experience across the website for all users we made many bug fixes and improvements such as fixing the login bug when users click on links to stories in emails, we fixed various What’s On’ - Issues such as dates on re-occurring Events and ‘Get Directions’, fixed an issue on the Activities page with links to stories as well as adding the ability for web admins to add retrospective activities to a story in the backend.

Stay tuned for more exciting upgrades coming soon…

November - December 2018

Development during this period was mainly concerned with consolidation, code clean-up and speed optimisation. We implemented Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) and our developers started an audit and clean-up of the complex points system as well as setting up the points system ready for the biennial redeemable points expiry. We also continued to work through various bug fixing such as a pesky caching issue whereby activities that had been deleted were still appearing on a user’s Activities list.

September - October 2018

September saw a few key upgrades as well as minor bug fixes to the Journey Planner, the Activities page and Stories interface. We updated the ‘Create Organisation’ registration form and the Workplace Travel Survey to allow champions to include names of other work sites.

Due to all the complex work completed previously on the activities page, the database needed a major upgrade to make it faster and easier to find things , so we completed a ‘Major database refactor’ to bring them all together into one efficient database.

July - August 2018

July saw the fruition of many significant changes.

To increase the transparency of the activities you complete now we have added the approximate points value for each activity in your activities list.

Also in the interest of communicating activities more clearly, now the activity linked to your story will show up as a link below the story title. As well as this, on your Activities Page, when you are browsing your own list of planned activities, you’ll be able to retrieve stories that have been written by others who have done it; the plans and execution of said activity. You’ll also have an easy link to the story that you wrote against each of you your completed activities.

Workplace champions will be pleased to know that you can now view and test the Workplace Survey template, before you create one for you own organisation. Workplace champions can also now add extra questions to workplace Travel Surveys, a feature often requested by our users!

On the topic of surveys, now school champions can save a template of their classes so that you don’t have to add the class rows in each time.

You’ll have noticed a few other changes to your Results Page – namely the new graph that displays how your organisation’s active transport use has changed over time. This is based on data from the surveys that you complete, so if you want it to be updated, run a survey today!

May - June 2018

From June you can now update your organisation’s population from the Edit Profile page. In fact, we encourage you to. For Workplaces, you can make a quick update right before you create a workplace survey, providing a more accurate idea of the response rate. We also built in the functionality so you can add a document to a story if you already have a Story saved in draft mode. Once your happy with it, you can publish it.

In June, we implemented some super-exciting changes to the Rewards Shop. You can now search, filter, and sort the shop list to find what you are looking for. We also improved the pagination down the bottom to make browsing between shop pages much easier. Keep an eye out for a new type of item in the shop coming soon: Grants will soon be available first for Schools, and then for Workplaces down the track.

Check out 'Version History' below for full details.

March - April 2018

In March, rather than new features you can see in the front end, we've been working on back-end changes to help us manage Your Move more effectively and give you a better user experience. We fixed ‘User uploaded documents’ so they now correctly attach to stories as a link, we fixed the backend 'CMS Points Report' data that we use to monitor the website analytics and we added handy automated emails for all commenters on a story to keep the conversation going.

Check out 'Version History' below for full details.

February 2018

Due to feedback that it was difficult to see which other schools and workplaces are currently taking part in Your Move, we improved the leader board at the bottom of your Dashboard to search for any and all organisations that have registered to the website.

We also changed the 'Help' menu to 'FAQ', and added it to the top navigational menu for non-logged in users. Other than that, in February we made a host of changes to the back-end of the website, which probably wouldn’t interest you 😊.

Check out 'Version History' below for full details.

January 2018

In January 2018 we began to implement some exciting changes to make it easier for you to say what you want to say in this community.

We understand that you are all very busy people, and can’t always pump out a whole story in one session. That’s why we added the ability to save stories to draft which allows you to come back as many times as you need to before you’re happy to hit ‘publish’.

Alongside saving stories to draft, we also made a change to allow you to upload PDF, Word and Excel documents to Your Move via stories. These documents now appear as a link on your story, and will appear in the Resources page, under the category “Tools and ideas from our Champions”. (If you already have a Story saved in draft mode, as of June you can now add a resource to it before you publish it).

In January, we also made some significant changes to the way your Activities page looks an operates. You may have already noticed that you can now search for activities by their name, bypassing the need to look through our categories (although this is still a great way to meander through if you’re seeking inspiration).

Check out 'Version History' below for full details.
