Release Notes

May 4, 2021

What's New

  • Quick Peek: Take a quick peek at a Quip doc. If you’ve got a Quip document that contains links to other Quip documents, you can now hover over those links for a little thumbnail preview of the document that’s being linked to. Knowledge Article

  • Shift-Click for a Document Preview: Even cooler: Shift-click on a document almost ANYWHERE in Quip to open a full-sized preview of it without it taking over the tab. You can shift-click on docs in your All Files view, in your Updates feed, in your Notifications drawer, etc., to read its content and even respond to its comments without losing your place. Knowledge Article

  • Collapsible Sections: You’ll notice a little triangle next to your document headings now. Click it to collapse all the content between that heading and the next heading of the same size. Click it again to expand. This can be especially helpful for long document with lot of sections—like running meeting notes or long wikis. Also, up in the View menu, you’ll find commands to collapse ALL sections in a document, if you’re looking to start from a clean slate. Note that collapsing/expanding only affects your own view of the document—other folks won’t be affected by what you do here. :) Knowledge Article

What's New

  • Live App Menus on Mobile: Do more with your live apps while on-the-go. Select live app menu items are now supported on the Quip mobile app. For the Salesforce Record and Salesforce List, refresh your data, edit field values, and sync those edits to Salesforce, all from mobile. Supported live apps include the Salesforce Record, Salesforce List, Project Tracker, and the Kanban Board. For iOS

  • URL Display Options: New feature rolling out over the next week or so: When you paste a link into a Quip doc, you can now format it as a human-readable title rather than a jumbly ol’ URL. Just click the link and choose “Page Title” from the dropdown menu that appears.

Bug Fixes

  • Page Break Optimizations: We’ve made some tweaks to how Quip calculates page lengths, and now the page breaks we show (when you turn on Show Page Breaks in the Format menu) are a bit more accurate than before.

  • Mentions in Spreadsheets on iOS: It used to be that Quip’s iOS app didn’t let you mention users, documents, or anything else mentionable if you were typing into a spreadsheet cell. Rude! We’ve fixed that.

What's New

  • More visibility into documents linked to Salesforce Records:Salesforce record relationships are now visible in Quip navigation. In the “All Files” tab, icons are now displayed next to documents that are linked to Salesforce Records. We hope that this feature makes it easier for users to find the documents related to their most important records whether in Quip or Salesforce. For Web.

  • Template support for Data Mentions: In your templates, replace your mail merge syntax of record fields with Data Mentions. Data Mentions offer a more user-friendly way to define what object and field you want to templatize and when a document is created from that template, your Salesforce record data will always be in sync with Salesforce! To do so, mark a document as a template, enter @Salesforce Data Mention Template, and select object type and field. For Web.

  • Formula support for Data Mentions when MSP is enabled: If your Quip site has Mirror Salesforce Permissions “enabled”, we now support formulas for cells that contain a Data Mention. Let’s say you mention the “Amount Value” field of several opportunities. You can use a formula, like SUM, to calculate the total amount value. For Web.

  • Value of Data Mention shows up in document title and export Previously, if you had a Data Mention in the title of your doc or in a spreadsheet cell, it showed up as static “Data Mention” text. We fixed that. Now you will see the actual value of the Data Mention. For Web .

What's New

  • Automate Exporting a Quip Document to PDF: Take record-keeping snapshots of your important documents by generating a PDF and attaching to another Quip document with the Quip Automation API. Note that currently the endpoint only works with documents and not full spreadsheets. For Web and Desktop.

  • Synchronize Folders to Groups: Synchronize Quip Folders to user groups connected to directory services like Active Directory, Okta, or through the Quip SCIM API. As the user group membership changes, the folder members will update accordingly. For Web and Desktop.

  • Expanded Reporting for External Sharing: We’ve expanded the admin console reporting on external sharing to include all externally-shared documents (not just outbound documents). You can also see what companies your users are sharing with, zoom in on the collaboration with a specific company, and export .csv reports about your company’s external sharing with a specific partner. For Web and Desktop.

  • New Controls for External Sharing: There are new ways to control your external sharing within the admin console. You can remove your company’s members from externally-owned documents and remove external users from documents you own. You can also stop all existing sharing with a specific company, either removing all that company’s users from all of your documents, removing all your company members from that company’s documents, or both. For Web and Desktop.

  • Dark Mode and Increased Contrast support: Quip for iOS can now be used in dark mode. By default, the app follows your device settings, but you can customize the display in the “Appearance” section of your account settings. For Web, Desktop and iOS.

Bug Fixes

  • More Reliable Folder Copying: Copying entire folders used to fail more often than was ideal. Now it’s considerably more reliable, and there’s an indicator to let you know it’s actually happening.
