    My OCD is bothering me.. lol.. Shouldn't the "Mobile Beta - Character Sheet" be categorized with the green "In Progress" label? since you moved it to "In Progress (Currently in Development)"

    Quite the attention to detail - maybe I should hire you.

    Hello, I sadly didn't know nor get an email about this happening, and sadly I can't do anything with it besides looking at my characters and the data version of most if not all the D&D stuff. I scared, and only found out today that my username was changed to something else! I'm now in a panic, and I don't know if it's already too late to transfer my stuff. Can anyone help me, or is my last option to delete this account and lose everything...?

    PS: my username before the change was jiayuehoneyjade

     I would recommend sending a support ticket if you are able to.

    No need to submit a ticket - a nickname credit will be applied to the account shortly.

    The only thing that has happened at this time is the account has been obscured in the data transfer - all of the "stuff" is still there and available.

    For users in the European Economic Area, your account could have been deleted during D&D Beyond's transition to Fandom if you did not previously opt in for the transfer of your data. If this is the case, you will receive a free nickname change credit at the end of the deletion process (ETA < 2 hours). With that, you can change your nickname to whatever you desire and all of your posts, comments, etc. will be maintained.

    @Badeye,

    Would it be possible to get descriptions on each of these tasks so that we know what they entail? Maybe I'm out of the loop, but I don't know what features will be implemented with "Monster Builder", for example.

    More details/ descriptions will be added over time, yes. You'll see less and less detail the further right you get, but we'll add more as we have bandwidth.

     The web page for just the monster. Not the section in the MM.

     I really feel like that didn't need explaining but thanks anyway.

    I assume that's intended at me?

    If that's the case, it absolutely needed to be explained (at least to me, and I'm the one that can do something with the request) because "monster card" could have referred to a tooltip, the "stub" entry in the Creatures section list, or something else that wasn't coming to mind. I actually would have never made the connection that the use of "monster card" meant what we call the monster details page.

    Now I know that, and it's something that we could indeed do something about.

    I don't know if it's been suggested here or in another thread already, but... I love that I can manage the creature health on the creatures tab. But would it be possible in future iterations of the character sheet to add long rest functionality to this so that the companion's health resets after a long rest rather than having to remember to go in manually and do it? I know that y'all are working on adding that kind of functionality to items that have charges so would it be a stretch to extend it to this area of the sheet?

    Added to the list - thanks.

     I would also like, at least, a link from the creature to the monster card if not the ability to roll HP and attacks and such.

    Not sure what you mean by "monster card" here - we don't use that terminology for anything (yet).

    What exactly are the "Challenges"?

    We have three product development teams at this point (they are fairly newly-formed) - Characters, Content, and Challenges.

    Characters includes all the character management parts of the platform, Content covers game and homebrew content (Compendium, listings, etc.), and Challenges will cover encounters, monster builder, and so on.

    As discussed in recent dev updates, I will share the new Trello board with the feature roadmap for D&D Beyond. This comes with several disclaimers, so be sure to read that part - especially that this is not everything we have planned. The intent is to inform on prioritization!

    As expected, none of the requests with a priority for the players/DMs has been listed in this roadmap.

    As expected, the company focus is on stabilization of the code (programming) and accessibility of source material (marketing).

    Is there anyone there really playing using DnDBeyond in the Head of Development Staff?

    My answer is, *NO*. Otherwise all the basic features we ask since 2 years ago would at least appear in the roadmap.

    A very depressed DM and Player.

    To be honest, I am very confused by your statement. What basic features are you referring to that are not on the roadmap?

    Also, it seems (to me anyway) that everything there is intended to provide convenience for players/ DMs and so I am genuinely perplexed.

    This Trello board will also be updated at least monthly so you can see over time how those priorities change based on opportunity and community feedback. Thanks for your help making DDB what it is and can't wait for everyone to see what it's going to be in 2019 and beyond (that pun still is not old on our end :D).

    posted a message on Feedback Request - Encounter Builder Monster Info Ranking Survey
    Quote from Capt0bv10u5 >>

    However, it makes me wonder how many people took the survey on mobile and never realized there were more options.

     Very few to none - the thousands of survey responses we received had a 99.+% rate of answering all the questions all the way to the end.

    The Google Forms experience is indeed awkward on mobile, but I won't complain too much knowing how hard it is to want to do everything great now and not have the resources to do that. :)

    posted a message on Slack integration?
    Quote from DantePD >>

    Quote from jbagnoli >>

    Any chance of something like that happening?

    We have some internal Slack stuff going on, where the players can type as their characters in some of our campaigns and I as the DM can type as any NPC, etc.
    We just have that for fun for our use. What would people like to see out of integration if we did something publicly?

     I'd be deliriously happy to see integration for platforms like Slack, Discord, Telegram, etc

    We are going to open up the official D&D Beyond Discord server early this year. I'm sure over time we'll see some community (and official) integrations pop up with that.

    We have seen far more interest in Discord than Slack, so we are prioritizing there as of now.

    posted a message on Request and Vote for New Features for DDB
    Quote from Josef >>

    I was able to login, but there were no voting options.  Even going in to the individual posts and trying to use up arrow didn't allow a vote to register.  Might be because I'm clueless, certainly wouldn't rule that out.  User error is usually a factor with me.

    You would use the up/ down voting area (highlighted in the screenshot below). If that doesn't appear for you, then something very strange is going on and let us know.

    Quote from Windrunner >>

    This actually sounds like voting on 2019 prioritization is important.  Too bad DnDBeyond does not appear to want to educate or make it easy for long term users to participate. 

    I don't want to sound angry, just ask, as someone that has spent a fair amount of money here since day 1, to be treated with respect, given a route that does not require multiple user Id's (with related security risks), and better instructions to simply use and provide feedback on how to improve the tools I pay for. 

    Sorry if this is confusing or out of order, but please consider our position... 

    Sincere apologies for any confusion - to be perfectly honest I thought the Zendesk registration/ login flow would work without any issues.

    Since I was wrong in that assumption (sorry!), I have edited the original post to hopefully make it clearer what's happening:

    NOTE: The portal is available through our support platform (Zendesk) and requires a registered Zendesk account to use. Please keep in mind that this is only one input that we use to prioritize the backlog and collecting information in this way works well for some users but not others. You can always post your feedback here on the forums and it will be reviewed as always.

    I'll emphasize the last part - if this portal does not work for you as it does for others, please continue to share your feedback here in the forums and it will be seen and considered.

    I assure you that no disrespect was (or ever will be) intended. We simply learned about this functionality in our support platform and thought it would be helpful to utilize it. There's no way we would want to spend our own development resources to re-invent the wheel for something like this, so we decided to rely on the already-built feature in that platform. If you choose not to create that Zendesk account, please remember that you are not missing out on anything - it's just a way for us to gather more information than we would without it.

    I also can completely confirm that this portal has nothing at all to do with the recent news about us joining Fandom. The only changes coming for your D&D Beyond account is that we will provide alternate login methods in addition to Twitch in 2019.

    Thanks!

    Hello again everyone!

    As discussed in some of the recent dev updates, we now have a portal for you to share and vote for feature requests on D&D Beyond. Voting on the shared requests will help us prioritize the roadmap in 2019 and beyond.

    Keep in mind this is one input - we will use the feedback we receive from all sources to make the calls on what we work on, but this is a great place to let your voice be heard.

    Check it out here: ddb.ac/feature-requests

    NOTE: The portal is available through our support platform (Zendesk) and requires a registered Zendesk account to use. Please keep in mind that this is only one input that we use to prioritize the backlog and collecting information in this way works well for some users but not others. You can always post your feedback here on the forums and it will be reviewed as always.

    Thanks!
