We generally release new features and bug fixes around 3 pm PT, but that time is likely to vary. If you're not yet seeing these updates in your account, treat yourself to a little snack break and check back in a bit.

This release is packed with new features, small (but mighty!) changes, and a ton of bug fixes. We hope you enjoy these updates as much as we do.

What's New?

  • Unsplash Integration. Our friends at Unsplash have built an enormous library of beautiful, free images and photos that can be used for any project. We are so excited to add their library to our content creation tools—making it easier than ever for anyone to create beautiful, visual content, with no photo or design expertise needed!

    To use this integration...

    • Click Unsplash any time you're adding a cover photo or using /image to add visual assets to your content.

    • Use the search bar to find an image you like

    • Click to add it to your content

  • Countdown dashboard card. The countdown calendar dashboard is a fun way to get your team excited for any upcoming events, all-hands meetings, or big announcements. With a configurable title and linked button, you can setup your countdown however you'd like. If you're a workspace admin, visit your Dashboard Card Library to add a countdown to your workspace dashboard.
