Release Notes: February + March

Martin Broz

We created Release Notes to shine a spotlight on the latest features, design tweaks and all the little things that we work on during the course of the month. Let’s jump right in!

What’s new

New Settings

In February, we redesigned settings and added helpful toggles together with a number of shortcuts for faster navigation. Here’s the breakdown of the most important changes:

  • You’ll find the categories on your left-hand side with all options conveniently displayed on your right-hand side.

  • In Privacy, you can now easily hide your event so it won’t appear in the search suggestions or activate an additional layer of security to protect your meeting or event.

  • To save some time when tweaking your event’s looks, you can hover over the theme you like in Customize and get a quick glimpse of your Present view.

Features we shipped

Moderate your open text and word cloud polls

You can now filter out irrelevant or inappropriate responses from the open text or word cloud polls. This helps capture more valuable results for you and your participants.

Display the highlighted question in fullscreen

You can highlight a question and display it in fullscreen in Present view for your speakers and audience to make sure everyone’s attention is focused on the discussed subject.

Things we polished

Change rooms directly from Present view

While using Switcher in the background, you can now switch rooms directly from Present view. This will definitely spare a couple of clicks through different screens.

Slido and Slack integration

Over the past few months, we’ve been improving the Slido experience in Slack. In the latest version of this integration, you can crowdsource questions and ideas by using a simple /slido command in any DM or a channel.

Watch this short tutorial video and get inspired by the two use cases.

Learn how to set up the integration for your team here.
