Releases

Every few weeks, we release new features and technical fixes for the website. We’ll use this space to tell you what we’ve done. If you’ve got a product idea or think you’ve found a bug, let us know at support@patientslikeme.com

InstantMe history, help center, and research tab (03/31/2014)

1. InstantMe history charts

You can share how you’re doing and why with your InstantMe. You can now see new InstantMe history charts to help spot patterns or understand larger trends — like about when you update or how you’re doing by day, time of day, or time of year.

If you find these charts useful, we’d love to hear from you. Also remember the more you tell us about yourself, the better picture you'll be able to see.


 

2. Help Center

You can find out more about how to use the site in our new PatientsLikeMe Help Center. We’ll be adding more videos and guides — if there’s something specific you’d like to see please let us know.



3. Research tab

You can more easily see our past publications, talks, and about our upcoming research on our cleaned up Research tab.


Community goals and more iOS profile charts (02/12/2014)

1. Community goals page

On each condition page, you’ll now see a new page called Community goals. It describes how the community is contributing to research, and the value of donating your data.

2. More iOS profile charts

You can now view the seizure meter (for members with epilepsy), DLQI (for members with psoriasis), and ATEC (for members with autism) profile charts on your iPad or iPhone (thanks to a switch from Flash charts to HTML5). We’ll continue making the site more mobile friendly over the next year. Let us know which pages are causing you the most grief on your phone or tablet, and we’ll note those as priorities.

More iOS profile charts and notifications icon (01/28/2014)

1. More iOS profile charts

You can now see the profile charts on your iPad or iPhone for Quality of Life, weight, hospitalizations, PFRS (for Fibromyalgia and CFS), and PF Severity. We’ll continue making the site more mobile friendly over the next year. Let us know which pages are causing you the most grief on mobile devices, and we’ll note those as priorities.

2. Notification icon contrast

We heard that the icons to see new messages and notifications were hard to read. We've made the contrast greater so you can now more easily see when you have a new private message, comment, or shoutout.

Block a follower and iOS profile charts (12/17/2013)

1. Block a follower

We’ve heard that sometimes you rather another member not follow your profile updates. You can now remove someone from your followers in the dropdown menu. Per our Openness Philosophy, know that all members will still be able to see your profile and updates in condition journals.

2. Profile charts for iPad and iPhone

You can now see the profile charts on your iPad or iPhone for InstantMe, Labs and Tests, FRS (for ALS), MSRS (for MS), and Mood Map. We’ll continue making the site more mobile friendly over the next year. Let us know which pages are causing you the most grief on mobile devices, and we’ll note those as priorities

Medium contrast (12/05/2013)

Last month, we rolled out some changes to how the site looks and feels. We got great feedback, including one particular point about how the grey font could be difficult to read. So, we changed it! The new font default is black and we created a medium contrast option to make the font even bolder.

This is what the new option looks like:
