2018. Basecamp adds recurring events and image galleries



Project management service Basecamp added several new features. The first is Recurring events. You can add daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly repeating events to your Basecamp 3 schedule. You can choose to continue those repeating events until a certain date, or forever. The second new feature is Image galleries. You can put your images in a side-by-side gallery or even three-in-a-row, making it easier than ever to display your work or share photos. And the third is Automatic Check-ins. It is a simple, relaxed tool we use a lot to keep up with one another. The whole company gets asked things like: What did you do this weekend? What have you worked on? Small teams like Support get asked questions like: What was a common issue that you saw this week?


2018. Google Calendar now lets you add a message when you change an event



Google Calendar gets a new useful feature. When you change or delete an event, a dialog box now pops up that allows you to attach a short message to the event to explain why you are making the change and what’s changing. On the event page in Google Calendar itself — and in the email that alerts your guests of the change — that message will then appear at the top of the event details section. The new dialog box appears automatically, so far more people will now explain their changes than before. This new feature is now rolling out to all G Suite users and should be available to everybody (no matter whether their admins have them on the rapid release or schedule release schedule) within the next three days.


2016. Office 365 groups gets connectors



Microsoft released Office 365 Connectors that enable teams who have been pulled together in an Office 365 Group to share third-party services using a single sign-in or account. Office 365 Connectors can surface all the information that a team may need from services like Twitter, LinkedIn or Trello, and makes it available through the shared Groups inbox. By providing an integrated experience that link together email conversations, file storage, and calendar event management, Groups create an integrated experience for teams to focus on group activity.
