What's New

  • Salesforce Data Mentions - Customize Layout on Web: Users on web/desktop will now have the ability to add, remove, and re-order fields that are most relevant for their Salesforce records. This helps save rep’s time updating Salesforce field information. For Web

  • New Tableau CRM Live App Mobile Experience: Open your embedded Tableau CRM dashboards on your mobile device. When viewing a Quip document, scroll to the Tableau CRM live app and you will see an option to open your dashboard in the Tableau CRM mobile app. The handoff is supported on both iOS and Android, and allows for optimized viewing and interaction with Tableau CRM dashboards on a mobile device. Note that users must have both the Quip and Tableau CRM mobile apps downloaded, and be logged into the same Salesforce org for seamless access. For Web

  • Quip Works Better When Tiny: Looking at Quip in a small window? Need to zoom in so you or the people you’re screensharing with can see better? We made dramatic improvements to how Quip looks and works even when it doesn’t have much breathing room. For Web and Desktop

Versions: Web

July 6, 2021

What's New

  • New Folder List View: We’ve introduced a whole bunch of functional and performance improvements to how folders look and how they’re organized. Among the changes you can expect to see: 1) All your multi-member folders in one view: No more having to decide between “Group” and “Shared” when you click into your folder view. Everything is in one place. 2) List view is now the default view: Why? It offers better access to sorting and bulk-organization features, and it makes it easier to understand how all your folders work together in Quip. 3) Global view settings: Now, grid and list views are a global setting, and the experience is consistent from folder to folder. 4) Member count and link-sharing: We're now automatically providing the member count in list view, and showing a little paperclip 📎 icon next to any folders or files that have link-sharing turned on. (Oh, and one last thing to note for admins: You can still create Group folders, with all the special permissions they entail. The only thing that's different is that users don't have to figure out what kind of folder they're looking for to know where to find it.) For Web, Desktop, and iOS

  • Improved Comment Navigation: We’ve added “Previous Thread” and “Next Thread” buttons so that you can more easily jump between comment threads without having to hunt each one down in the document. This works with not just your normal paragraph comments, but also comments in spreadsheets and on images as well! There is now also a comments menu (the ... button), behind which you can turn on “Show Comment Source” to always see a snippet of what the the comments are referencing, or archive (formerly known as “resolve”) the comment thread. For Web and Desktop

  • Alt Text Support: Want to make sure your Quip document is accessible to screen reader users? You can now add alt text to the images and GIFs you upload to your documents! For Web and Desktop

  • Document Outline on Mobile: We’ve just launch a new way to navigate your documents from the Quip mobile apps. Just tap the outline icon at the top of any doc (it looks a little like a list) then tap any heading to jump to that part of the document. For iOS and Android

Versions: Web, Mac 7.39.1, Windows 7.39.0, iOS 7.39.6, Android 7.39.0

What's New

  • Default Emoji Skin Tone: Diversity and inclusion are core qualities to Quip and we want to make it easier for you to represent yourself in the tools you use.

Open the emoji picker (that both appears in the message composer and when you try to react to a message) and click the new 👋 icon to set your preferred skin tone. For Web, Desktop, and iOS

  • Data Mentions (iOS Support): Last year, we introduced the ability to insert Salesforce Data Mentions and make record edits on the web and desktop apps so that you can collaborate on and update Salesforce data quickly. Now we’re bringing those same capabilities to the iOS app. Enjoy! For iOS

  • Android Navigation Redesign: Last year, we redesigned the desktop and iOS apps with an eye toward making it easier to find the stuff that’s most important to you. Now we’re bringing the same streamlined layout to the Android app. All your updates, folders, favorited docs, and recently opened docs are now in one simple tab called “Home.” No matter how you prefer to browse Quip, Home has you covered.
