New database, sign-up form, full-featured digests, and more
Greetings from Groups.io,
New year, new features! Here's what we've been up to since our last update:
Groups now have a database. Define a table with a set of columns, which can include: text fields, checkboxes, multiple choice selections, dates, times, or addresses. Each table supports an unlimited number of rows. Tables are great for storing and searching on structured data and forms.
New Sign-Up Form
You can now embed a signup form in your website, making it easy for people to join your group. See the new Promote tab in the sidebar for your group for more information.
Full Featured Digests
We've had plain text digests since the beginning. Now we also have full featured digests. They look nicer and contain links making it easy to jump from the Topics list to individual messages within the digest.
Log In And Join Group Improvements
It's now easier to log into the Groups.io website, using the new 'Email me a link to log in' function. We've also made it easier to join groups through the website.
Of course, we're not done. Have an idea for how to improve Groups.io? Join the beta group and let us know!
Thanks for using Groups.io!
