New and Improved Sheets & Templates

v0.17.0 - September 27th, 2021

In our biggest update yet, we have completely overhauled our Sheets and Templates! After months of feedback from our community of early game masters, players, and creators, we put together a list of updates to make sheets and templates more flexible and powerful. Check out our blog post highlighting everything that has been updated, but to start here is a quickfire list of changes:

Sheets

  • Updating our dark theme to bring in a little color to our previously all grey UI.
  • Redesigned Sheets to improve readability of text and better distinguish the various elements displayed.
  • We've redesigned the Table of Contents to make it easier to navigate long sheets.
  • Sections within a sheet can now be reordered and collapsed.

Templates

  • Updated the creator to streamline how you add labels, descriptions, and access to common functions that were previously hidden in advanced options.
  • Drag & Drop! You can now drag and drop elements and groups to organize your template.
  • New Elements: Groups (formerly Blocks), Dropdowns, Clocks, Text, and Images.
  • Markdown enabled in Note elements.
  • No more blocks or limiting what can and cannot be 1 or 2 columns. You can now mix and match element sizes within the same Section or Group.

Map Fixes

v0.15.1 - July 21st, 2021

Fixed some bugs related to sharing maps and tokens.

Copy Sheets

v0.15.0 - May 25th, 2021
  • Added the ability to copy sheets from your dashboard. While viewing a sheet on your dashboard, the sheet's settings (gear icon) is now clickable and has an option for creating a copy of the sheet. This will copy the sheet in its entirety including all its info, and will immediately be selected for viewing.
  • Fixed being able to upload assets in Safari.
  • Fixed random maps/images showing up when first entering a table.
  • Fixed network quality indicators sometimes not showing up for users when in a video call.

Markdown in Chat

v0.14.0 - May 4th, 2021

This update contains a handful of quality of life improvements:

  • Markdown is now enabled for chat messages. This is the same markdown support we have in the Template Creator. This means chat messages will automatically hyperlink urls, you can add formatting such as bold, italics, tables, and more. If you want to learn more check out GitHub Flavored Markdown.
  • You can now rename assets! You'll find a new option in your Dashboard's Asset Library and Table's Asset Tray when you open an asset's menu. This will only appear for the owner of the asset.
  • If you hover over the author of a chat message, the message's timestamp will show up.
  • When you join or enter a table that was already sharing an image or map, that image or map will now automatically appear for you as well.
  • Fixed a crash that sometimes occurred in the Template Creator when a Block or Input description box would attempt to resize itself to fit its contents.

Account Updates

v0.13.0 - April 8th, 2021

As we continue to evolve the platform and onboard more players, we want to give more people the flexibility to try out Role. To that end, we have opened up some permissions and features to players who are signed up for a Guest Role Account. With a guest account you will now have the ability to:

  • Create and manage 1 table for your own play group.
  • Upload up to 200 MB of custom assets to your library.

Misc Improvements and Fixes

  • Added camera, microphone, and connection quality indicators to player thumbnails during a live play session.
  • Video calls were dropping for sessions running longer than 4 hours. Now when that happens you will be automatically reconnected.
  • Added some screen reader support for Sheets.
  • Fixed screen reader support for the Dice Tray.
  • Fixed showing how many players are currently connected to a video call.
