On this page, you’ll find a list of the major updates we’ve made to TakeTurns.

February 2023

  • Turn recall - Turn recall is like undo. It enables you to call back your last turn. It’s useful if you’ve accidentally ended your turn early or uploaded the wrong files. Under the covers, when you execute a turn recall, TakeTurns will cancel your counterparty’s turn and return control to you. Learn more

  • User interface enhancements. On the collaboration screen, we renamed “End turn” to “Send update” and “Close” to “Wrap-up” for more clarity. Many enhancements have been implemented in the user interface.

  • Improved pending invitation view. You can now see the avatar and name of the person who invited you to a collaboration.
