Monica 0.4.0 with phone calls

Keeping track of what you said to the people you care about is important. It was already possible to store notes about your contacts. Now you can also log a phone call, which will be super convenient to know when you last called someone and what you talked about during this call.

Monica 0.3.0 with tags

Only 5 days since v0.2.0 and yet another big release. So big that it required a new version for this.

When you have a lot of contacts in your account, you can now categorize your contacts with tag. Tags are like folders, but you can have multiple tags for one contact. This allows maximum flexibility to manage contacts the way you want it to do.

Default blank screen

Tags can be entered right below the contact name.

Contact view

Once contacts have tags, you can see them on the contact list, and click on them to filter the list.

Finally, you can delete tags either on the contact view, or in a new Settings panel created for this purpose.

Monica 0.2.0 with vCard import

One of the biggest feature request is the ability to import contacts from Google. Google allows to export data about your contacts in the vCard format, which is the universal standard for exchanging contact information. Monica 0.2.0 adds the ability to import your data from a vCard file (either .vcard or .vcf), so you can populate your account with most of your data instead of having to add your friends one by one.

Default import report

Right after your contacts are imported, you are redirected to a dashboard where you can see the status of the import. Because users might have thousands of contacts, Monica imports them asynchronously. You’ll have to wait a bit before all the contacts are imported.

You can click on a specific import to see what happened.

Also, we’ve added a feature to reset your account, which will be handy if you do import thousands of contacts and something goes wrong. Resetting an account deletes everything, except you.

Introducing multi-user support

Monica is meant to host all the private information about your contacts. By nature, this is personal, and private. However, there are some cases where you would want to share these information to someone else - your spouse for instance. It’s easy how Monica, in a context of a couple, can help the couple as a single entity to organize the relationships they have with their loved ones.

To address this use case, we are introducing the support for multiple users in a single account.

Adding users happens via email. As a security measure, the person you invite by email will have to enter the email of the user who has invited her upon registering.

You’ll find user management when you click on the Settings tab in your account.

Subscriptions

This feature is the first paid feature. The paid plan is called Chandler and costs USD $10 per month. This plan is only available on https://monicahq.com and does not affect self hosted installations. If you host Monica on your own server, you have access to paid features for free.
