Happy new year! We hope 2019 is off to a great start for you. In spite of the holidays, we were a full-steam Happeo machine and managed to shake out nine new updates to your organization’s digital heart.
Read on to find out about the big rebrand, Slack integration, better file sharing and more. Oh, let’s not forget: you can now invite users to Happeo that aren’t on the G Suite.
Here are our Christmas gifts to you:
1. Happeo Branding
We have rebranded both our web application and our iOS and Android applications to Happeo. What was once Universe is now Happeo. You can read more about the rebrand in our FAQ and on our blog.
2. Translate posts, comments and articles
You can now translate post-comments and articles in Happeo. Just click the three dots in the top right corner of a post or comment and use the translate function.
3. Slack integration
The integration allows selected posts from channels in Happeo to be directly sent to one or multiple channels in Slack, or Chat. This way employees get to choose where they continue the conversation. The integration creates a two-way communication stream, bridging the gaps that isolated Software as a Service (SaaS) tools can create. Read more about it in our press release.
4. Customized navigation
We have improved the navigation between posts, Channels and My Stream. If you open a post from My Stream, then click back, you will land back on My Stream. The same functionality applies to Channels.
5. Improved automated Team Drive file sharing
Improved sharing permissions for Team Drive. When you have a Team Drive attached to a Channel, adding a file from a subfolder associated with this drive no longer requires separate permission.
6. Invite external Google users
Previously you were only able to invite Google users from outside your Organization to specific Channels. Now you are able to also invite any Google user to Happeo as a fully licensed user. These users can have the same access as any other employee. External Google users can also update all user profile fields within user settings to complete their Happeo profile.
7. New user management for admins
You can now license or unlicense individual users, where previously this was only possible for entire Organizational Units. We have also improved the user search and the overall user interface for admin user management.
8. Additional mobile app channel management
You can now add and remove Channel members from the channel information tab. Users can now also leave Channels themselves.
9. Drive file picker for sharing in channel posts
Added the ability to attach Drive files to channel posts on the mobile app.
