Slack-channel based permissions, sharing private meets, and more
March 23, 2020
We have some important updates this week. Please take a look and let us know if you have any feedback.
New features / major changes:
- Slack-channel based permissions for private meets —- previously only users that were explicitly added as required/optional participants were able to access private meets. Now, when you select a slack channel for private, all the users who are members of that channel will have access to that meet too. Since this could have potentially elevated permissions to existing private meets, we had to remove Slack channels from all of the existing private meets. We apologize for the inconvenience.
- Private meets sharing on Slack -— private meet notes & recordings are now posted to Slack channels, previously this was only available for Transparent meets.
- Performance optimizations when a schedule is adjusted -— larger teams have previously experienced sluggish 10+ seconds reshuffling of meets during rescheduling. Our goal to make it instant, regardless of how big your team. This was significantly improved this week, and we plan for additional optimizations in the coming weeks.
Small improvements & bug fixes:
- [Bug] Users can select private channels they aren’t part of
- [Bug] WYSIWYG notes editor cursor was jumping to the start during concurrent editing
- [Improvement] Links from meet notes are opened in a new tab by default.
- [Improvement] Meets created from private Slack channels are now created as private
