What’s New in Rallyverse: Your Home Screen

By , on January 9, 2015 at 4:16 pm

This is the first in a series of posts on the new version of Rallyverse. If you’re not yet using the new version yet, just click the link at the top of your Rallydeck. If you have questions, just get in touch.

Rallyverse Home Screen

Getting things done with Rallyverse starts with the Home Screen, formerly known as Rallydeck. The Home Screen displays all of your new content recommendations and draft posts for searching, filtering and editing. While the new Rallyverse Home Screen retains the basic tile layout of the Rallydeck complete with post details like the source, publication date and score, there are some cool new elements worth noting.

New Sidebar

The first big change is that the sidebar, complete with the search box and filters, is no longer displayed by default. Instead, the Home Screen shows you nothing but your content recommendations.

To show the search box and filters, click the blue hamburger button in the upper left corner of the screen (far left of the top nav bar). That displays the new sidebar:

New Sidebar

The new sidebar has four different sets of controls: a Sort toggle, a Search box, a set of pre-set Filters and Your Keywords for sorting content:

Sort allows you to choose to sort the content recommendations by their score or by time, with the most recently published content showing first at the top of the page. The default sort style is by Score.

Search allows you to enter and query and display only the results that contain their query terms: either in the post title, the post source or in any of the user-defined or publisher-defined description text.

Filters allow you to sort the results of the Home Screen by a number of different categories, including New posts, Draft posts, Owned content, as well as content from Twitter, Linkedin and Instagram.

Your Keywords allow you to sort content by their most highly scored Keywords (that they entered in Settings).

Breadcrumbs

Breadcrumbs

When you enter a search query, selects a Filter or Keyword, the Home Screen will display a breadcrumb trail at the top of the results that lets you know what results have been displayed — and allows you to easily return to a previous view.
