New features wrap-up (August)!

It’s time for our August new features wrap-up!

For those that are new, at the end of each month, we share a wrap-up of the new features we released. We include features that have been fully released, in a gradual release and even give our community a sneak peak into features that are in their development stages :eyes: We are also including a new section that uncovers our :star2: top tips and support highlights :star2: for the month!

We will kick things off with the :rocket: support highlights for August :rocket:

In our Office Hours session last week, we discussed the different apps available (in the apps marketplace) for document management. In response to this discussion, we decided to put out a poll on our facebook page to uncover which app was the :heart: community favourite :heart:

These were the results of the poll and community anecdotes:

:rocket: Docugen came out on top with 52% of the vote!

  • Their support is great & their team gets back to you instantly.

:rocket: Getsign was next on the podium with 20% of the vote!

  • GetSign was so much easier to use than Docugen. Their support is amazing and they’re responsive to feature recommendations. Free option available.

:rocket: Eledo took 3rd place with 19%!

  • Eledo, it’s insanely powerful, though complex, and support is fast and in-app.
  • Eledo! Amazing and can be personalised. Using it to autogenerate our clients invoice attachment files.

:rocket: Pandadoc was last but not least with 9%!

Now let’s get into our feature wrap-up for August! Check out the status definitions below if you aren’t familiar:

When needed, one can click on the undo button to restore the deleted view. Once restored, the undo button will be grayed-out
