I really like the concept of the Harbor, but find it a little complicated when navigating. I used Excel mainly when I was a fleet sup at Stanford, and that was a challenge at first. Maybe you can put together a tutorial on how to best navigate the App. In my old age, I'm finding I no longer have the patience.@props2you Excellent feedback! I get exactly where you are coming from. We were going to release the application in September, but it was designed in a non modular way, where it almost required you to keep records on everything, I didn't like it. So we tore it all down and created a modular area architecture for the specific reasons you mentioned above. This way an individual can can use it how they wish without feeling "Required" to use everything. Hence added time as we went back to the drawing board. Only a few users are using every module. Personally I don't use every module for my boat. The key with the launch was to put out the "Kitchen Sink" and we see what features and areas have user acceptance, adoption and use. As the application maturates areas could be discontinued if not used. Already we are working on the UI change for Version 2 this fall which will make it smoother to navigate and allow a user to configure the flow for the things that they want to use vs the things they don't.
Additionally the primary goal between Versions 1 and 2 is to find ways that create less friction and make it a "Breeze". This also will be about the time when Mobile will be taking shape, which will have a slimmed down interface. You can use the current version on a phone and it scales accordingly, it just is a bit difficult with some of the larger pivot grids to scale.
Simply put, you add your Watercraft and some base details and then use which areas you want to use. They are all loosely coupled.
Nice work on the system. But I’m with this guy.My only concern with this software...
is that I don't want to see what I've spent on my boat! Looks nice, going to check out the trial.
I can see this being helpful for a lot of reasons, but also for resale; is there an ability to export the info from the modules to give to a potential buyer for instance, that would show the dates and type of service, accessories and when they were added, etc?
@HangOutdoors Thank you!I would like to take the this time to thank everyone whom trialed out the application as well the multitude of current members from this forum who signed up, the patterns that we have seen with specific areas of usage have made it clear where we overbuilt and where we need to go much further in additional features. Our soft launch is coming to end tonight and we are preparing for full scale launch of the application during May. What this means that we are going to hold code updates for about 1-2 weeks and publish the final launch updates at one time.
Tremendous amount of feedback and changes that that have been requested by users of this forum. We have been implementing the changes and publishing them live constantly.
It is truly fantastic seeing the different parts of the application used in ways that we did not anticipate.
For launch the user interface will change slightly, you can print out a watercraft report (print, pdf, etc.). You will be able generate a modifications list automatically that you can copy and paste into your profile here or any where else you wish. With the ability to toggle items off which you don't want to include. If you look at the my signature on this forum, that was generated automatically and copied and pasted. Makes it simple if that is the format you wish.
Also you will be able to toggle a public viewable page on, if you like, and copy the link. When someone goes to that page it can show anything about your watercraft you like, excellent for selling your watercraft or linking a complete profile anywhere. This was the most requested feature by far. Also with the click of a button you can turn it off.
