Website notes get a usability boost and increased character count
The Watchful dashboard stores specific information about a website in its humble little feature called website notes, which aren’t stored or logged elsewhere. Common examples include site-specific upgrade steps, client preferences, a record of site milestones or 1-off site maintenance tasks such as modifying the
When you open a site drawer, Watchful’s sites dashboard prominently displays these notes.
Character limit raised to 1024
The website notes field had a limit of 256 characters for many years. Now, the character limit for this is 1024, allowing the saving of more information.
We modified the limit based on feedback from some Watchers. 1024 characters allows for room to save enough information without obscuring anything critical that Watchful overlooks with too much input.
Character counter added
When adding notes, a new character counter is visible in the lower-right corner as shown below. This small usability improvement prevents the frustration of typing a long passage and losing everything typed past the limit.
