New mobile site, chat and more

 

Greetings from Groups.io,

The updates group has been quiet, but we've been working hard on improving Groups.io. It's a new year and we wanted to update you on some of the improvements we've made to Groups.io over the past several months. If we listed all the improvements, this message would be way too long. Instead, here's a sampling of what we've done:

New Mobile Site

If you haven't visited the website on your phone or tablet lately, you should check it out. We've made it much easier to work with your groups while on the go. There's new navigation specifically for small screens and infinite scroll to make viewing messages easier.

Chat

You can now create chat rooms to go along with your groups. Some conversations are best done in threads and posts, some conversations are best in chat. We now support both!

Better Profiles

You can now change your profile for each of the groups you're a member of. Use a different photo, change your display name, set a different bio.

Enterprise Version of Groups.io

We've been hard at work on the Enterprise version of Groups.io. With this option, you can specify your own domain name and logo, and other options. Look for an announcement about it soon.

Other changes, in brief:
  • Two Factor Security. You can now set up two-factor security on your account, for extra protection.
  • RSVPs for Events. People can RSVP to events, and you can view and message those who have responded.
  • New Member Directory. Each group can have a member directory, where you can view the profiles of other members of your group.
  • Custom Signatures. You can specify custom signatures to be added to your messages.
  • Groups can be set to auto-moderate or auto-close threads after a specified number of days.
  • Database tables have a new Image column.
  • You can upload and include images in your Wiki pages now.

Thanks for using Groups.io and have a great weekend!
