January 26, 2021

What's New

  • Data Validation 2.0: Data Validation has become more robust with nine new validation rules, in addition to other functional and visual improvements. You can now set cells to only accept attachments, people, dates, numbers, text, URLs, emails, and checkboxes. You can also now set the dropdown options to be from an existing cell range of your choice. For Web and Desktop

  • Line Numbers: We've added the ability to see the line numbers in your Quip documents. Among other things, they're very handy for meetings, when you need to point people to specific parts of a document. Note that they'll only appear for your view and not for all members of the document. Toggle line numbers on and off from the View menu. For Web and Desktop

  • Text Wrap in Spreadsheets Toolbar: Access text wrapping options right from the spreadsheets toolbar with the new Text Wrap button. For Web and Desktop

  • Updated Spreadsheets Text Alignment Icon: We've updated the text alignment icon for spreadsheets to match the one we use for documents. For Web and Desktop

  • Dark Mode and Increased Contrast: Give your eyes a rest—Quip can now be used in dark mode on desktop or the web! We have also added the ability to increase contrast throughout the Quip interface in either light or dark modes to make colors bolder, which may be especially helpful for low vision users. Both settings can be found in the “Appearance” tab in Account Settings. For Web and Desktop

Too many comments interrupting your reading experience? Turn them off just for yourself by going to View → Show Comments for each document. As a reminder, keyboard users can still access comments on any section in a document outside of View-Only Mode by using the keyboard shortcuts cmd+shift+c or ctrl+shift+c. For Web

December 8, 2020

What's New

  • Share a Folder Using Its URL: At last, it’s now possible to share folders by sending around a shareable URL, rather than requiring members to be added one-by-one. Just go to the folder you want to share, click the share button, hit the “Shareable Link” switch, and send the URL to whoever you’d like to add. For Web and Desktop

Versions: Web

December 2, 2020

What's New

  • Multi Factor Authentication: This adds an extra layer of security by asking for a verification code after you sign in with your email address and password. From the Admin Console under Accounts & Access, Admins will see a new Multi Factor Authentication option available. Once enabled, any user entering a password to log in will be prompted to enroll in an additional verification method (Salesforce Authenticator, Authy, Google Authenticator, etc). Any user logging in with SAML/SSO will not be affected by this change.

  • Improved User Hovercards: They’re bigger and better! Now when you hover over someone’s name or avatar, it’s much easier to message them, see their status and presence, and copy their email address to your clipboard with just one click. For Web and Desktop

Versions: Web

What's New

  • A New Look for Account Settings We’ve reorganized the account settings menu to make it easier to tweak your Quip experience just so. For Web and Desktop

  • Apple Silicon Support The Quip Mac application now runs natively on Apple Silicon (M1) devices, for improved performance. For Mac

  • Better Folder Breadcrumbs: It turns out many of you have folders that are very, very deep within other folders, and that it the breadcrumbs for those folders were getting terribly squished. Sorry about that. We’ve redesigned them for better readability and easier navigation. (You’ll notice the new design when sharing, searching, browsing folders, and clicking the folder label next to document titles.). For Web and Desktop

Users are able to edit Salesforce fields and save back to Salesforce. For Web, Desktop

  • Removing the Inline Toolbar for Live Apps: We did some clean up and got rid of the inline formatting toolbar – a relic from Quip’s past – that still remained for Live Apps. You can continue to apply formatting to content in Live Apps via the standard toolbar at the top. For Web and Desktop

  • Export Live App API: To analyze your live app data or reinitialize live apps somewhere else, use the Export Live App API.

For Web and Desktop

  • Slides Retirement: We are retiring slides on January 31, 2021. After this date, users will no longer be able to create slide presentations in Quip and existing Quip Slides will be view only.
