The Future of Kolab Now: Part II

Posted on: July 12th, 2020 by

Kolab Now is a paid online service, where users can pay for their subscription and used resources via credit card, PayPal, bank transfer (and in the future, bitcoin). It is the task of a centerpiece module called the Hosted Kolab Customer Control Panel (HKCCP) to manage and administer the subscriptions and payments (among other tasks).

Over the years we have received feedback from users with constructive, honest criticism about the level of flexibility in the payment system. Users have wanted greater control of when to pay, and the actual services and resources paid for. As we always strive to improve the user experience, we listened and made accommodating changes to the payment system in the new updated HKCCP.

Like the last time we declared having made a full eclipse around the sun at an arbitrary date, here’s our statistics for 2019.

Long Live the web page..

Posted on: December 5th, 2019 by

You may have seen that we had some issues with our website front page ‘https://kolabnow.com/’ this afternoon, and that it was on and off a few times.

Yes! We did some updates on the themes and color pallets. We had the new update up for a short while, but found out that our designer had ‘made a boo boo’. It took a little time to fix it and get the colors right, but everything is ok up and running again now.

During this update we did not touch the actual service ‘https://kolabnow.com/apps’ or anything even close to the data – only the front page ‘web blah’. If you were just reading your mail and going about using the service, then everything was just working as it should. Chances are, that you did not experience any issue at all.

If you were looking for anything on the front page at exactly that moment where we were moving things around, then we apologize for the inconvenience.

 

DISCLAIMER: No bits died or were hurt during this update.
