In the past few weeks, I've been working on Persona, the superhuman for contacts app. You can learn more about it when we launch, but for now, feel free to follow my progress through these blog posts.

Today and yesterday, I worked on adding a calendar feature to visualize interactions. As of the moment, it doesn't have too much functionality. It's using FullCalendar because we don't have much time to roll our own React calendar component. So far, it works out pretty damn well.

We also added more functionality to the dashboard. Although it does look more lively, it is quickly getting cluttered.

We changed the database schema to allow the input of an end date to each interaction. Hopefully, this will make it easier to plan out future events and avoid event conflicts.
