Slack Member Sync and More
We've been busy working on new features and improving Groups.io. Here are our latest updates:
Slack Member Sync
Mailing lists and chat, like peanut butter and chocolate, go great together. Do you have a Slack Team? You can now link it with your Groups.io group. Our new Slack Member Sync feature lets you syncronize your Slack and Groups.io member lists. When someone joins your Groups.io group, they will automatically get an invite to join your Slack Team. And when someone joins your Slack Team, they'll automatically get added to your Groups.io group. You can configure the sync to be automatic or you can sync members by hand. Access the new member sync area from the Settings page for your group.
As an aside, another potentially great combination, bacon and chocolate, do not go great together. Trust us, we've tried.
Thread And Message Management
The heart of a group is the message archive. And nobody likes a unorganized archive. We've added the ability to split and merge threads. Has a thread changed topics half way through? Split it into two threads. Or if two threads are talking about the same thing, you can merge them. You can also delete individual messages, and change the subject of threads.
You can now log into Groups.io using Google. For new users, this allows them to skip the confirmation email step, making it quicker and easier to join your groups.
Have an idea for how to improve Groups.io? Join the beta group and let us know.
Thanks for using Groups.io!
