May 26, 2020

What's New

  • Use Live Paste to keep content in sync across multiple documents: Just copy the content you’re interested in, paste it into a different document, then choose Live Paste from the menu that appears below your pasted content. Whenever that content gets updated at the source, it’ll automatically be updated wherever you Live Pasted it. (Note that you can also choose manual updates, if you prefer.) It works for text, lists, tables, images, videos — or any mix of those things — and it’s a simple but powerful way to establish a single source of truth for the content that matters to your team. For Web, Desktop, and Mobile.

  • Organize your folders with bulk move and delete: When browsing a folder in list view, you can now move or delete multiple items all at the same time. Hold down option (on a Mac) or alt (on Windows) and click the items you want to select, then head up to the Item menu (or just right-click) to choose what you want to do to them. Keyboard users: You can multi-select by holding command (on a Mac) or control (on Windows) while arrowing up and down, then hitting the space bar. For Web.

What's New

  • Data Reference Paste Menu: Now you can easily create a new data reference by simply copy and pasting a range of cells into another spreadsheet. When you perform the paste action, you will see a purple clipboard icon appear. Simply click on it and select the “Data Reference” option.

Bug Fixes

  • Embedded spreadsheet rendering performance improvements: We improved how quickly a spreadsheet embedded in a document will render. Previously, if you had a very large spreadsheet in a document it had trouble fully rendering, which would prevent you from interacting with the document. Now it should take a fraction of the time.

  • Formula calculation performance improvements: Formulas are now calculated much more efficiently resulting in faster actions. You’ll see improvements around formulas that reference another cell, conditional formatting rules, changing options in a data validation dropdown, sorting, and other related calculations.

  • Read-only documents are now accessible to keyboard and screen reader users: Previously, it was difficult to navigate to an embedded spreadsheet and its cells when a document was read-only.

March 24, 2020

What's New

  • Subscripts and superscripts: Format text in documents with subscripts and superscripts. Find these options in the Format menu or use the ⌘/Ctrl + , or ⌘/Ctrl + . keyboard shortcuts.

  • Group folder deletion: Admins can delete any group folder in the Group Folders section of the admin console.

  • Self-serve Unredacted Audit Access: There’s a new Unredacted Audit Access to All Members & Content permission, which you can grant using Admin Roles. Admins with this permission can view every document and every user at your site, export content sitewide, and otherwise have full access across your organization via the admin console. (If you’ve previously enabled these permissions for some admins or your entire site, you’ll see a section describing your Legacy Unredacted Audit Access under the Admin Roles section in Site Settings.)

March 17, 2020

What's New

  • Admin Roles: Admins can create custom permissions profiles and assign them to admins, to granularly control what parts of the admin console each person can view or edit. All current admins default to the Super Admin role. See the support article for more detail.

  • Custom emails to new users: When provisioning new users in the admin console, admins can control and customize the emails that get sent to new users.

Bug Fixes

  • Lookup formula changes and improvements: We will now only throw an error for a legitimate circular reference. For example, if in cell C1 you had the formula “VLOOKUP(3, A1:B4, 2)” and B1 = C1. Previously, this formula would have an error because B1 is referencing C1 and C1 is referencing B1 (through the range A1:B4). Now we will not throw an error because C1 is actually not depending on the value of B1. Formulas this affects include: VLOOKUP, HLOOKUP, LOOKUP, IF, IFERROR, IFNA, SUMIF, SUMIFS, COUNTIF, COUNTIFS, AVERAGEIF, AVERAGEIFS.

March 9, 2020

What's New

  • New Add/Edit Link UI: We refreshed the design for the Add/Edit Link flow to make it more user friendly. We also no longer require the user to input the http protocol for URLs. For Web and Desktop.

  • Message forwarding: Messages can now be forwarded from one conversation to multiple other chats. If the viewer of the forwarded message has access to the source, they will see where the original message came from.

  • Redesigned Composer with GIFs and Stickers: The iOS composer has been modernized and we added the capability to add fun GIFs and stickers to your messages across your conversations. For Web, Desktop, and iOS.

Bug Fixes

  • Notification Updates:
    • Spreadsheet cell content is now included in email notifications. Previously, when you got an email notification for a comment in a cell, it only included the comment. Now, we include a preview of the cell so you know what is being commented on.
    • Opening a spreadsheet comment notification from an email or the notification drawer should now take you to the correct cell. Previously, if the comment was on a cell outside the viewport, clicking on the notification would not take you to the correct cell.
