Release Notes

August 5, 2020

What's New

  • Locked Sections: In addition to locking edits to the entire document, you’re now able to lock edits to individual parts of a document. Handy for keeping information intact, minimizing accidental edits, and streamlining business processes. To lock a section, click on it and then choose “Lock Edits” from the floating context menu over to the right. (Alternatively, you can also go to the Format menu and click “Lock Edits” there.) And just FYI: only non-list, text styles can be locked at this time. For Web, Desktop, and Mobile

  • Equations: Insert equations by typing @math right into your Quip documents. Equations can toggled to be viewed either inline or full-width (AKA “Display Mode”). Equations are rendered using the LaTeX library which supports many LaTeX functions. For Web, Desktop, and Mobile

  • Temporary Filter Views for View or Comment-Only Users: Users without edit access to spreadsheet data are able to now create their own temporary filter views to quickly sort, filter, and view the data as they wish without impacting the view for other users. Multiple temporary filter views can be created and are available to only the creating user for the duration of their session. For Web, Desktop, and Mobile

  • Extended text styles: You can now style items as code, strikethrough and superscript using the text editing controls. For iOS

  • Better right-click menus: We noticed some inconsistencies between the dropdown menus and right-click menus for various types of text sections. Those inconsistencies have been addressed, and your menu options are more thorough at every turn. For Web and Desktop

  • Group folder search in admin console: Search for group folders in the admin console—simple but effective! For Web

  • User access levels added to Get_threads API endpoint: The admin get_threads endpoint will return all users’ access levels on the called thread. For Web

  • Improved trackpad support: More parts of the Quip app correctly handle the trackpad included with the iPad Magic Keyboard. For iOS

What's New

  • Paste Quietly: Previously, if you pasted content containing @mentions of people, those people would automatically get notified about the mention. We know there are times where you don’t want to bug those people again, which is why we’re introducing Paste Quietly. Now when you paste copied content, you can decide whether you want to re-notify the @mentioned users or not. For Web and Desktop

What's New

  • Hide the function helper in spreadsheets: Sometimes you don’t need the helper callout that appears when typing out a function’s arguments—we get that. We’ve added an option to hide the helper by clicking the ‘X’ on the top-right. We’ll remember your preference and keep it hidden. You can unhide the helper later at anytime by clicking the ‘?’ icon that appears beside a cell when typing out a function’s arguments again. For Web and Desktop

  • Insert images and files into cells with the @ key: Previously, the only way to insert media into a cell by focusing on the cell and using the Insert menu. Now, you can type @image or @file to insert images and files into cells just like you do in documents today. For Web and Desktop

  • External badges for folders, everywhere: If a folder is shared externally, you’ll now see a badge anywhere you might encounter that folder—in Search results, while organizing documents, or while adjusting sharing settings. No more double-checking whether you’re sharing something with your clients or just your team! For Web and Desktop

  • Guided Setup Package for Quip C360 Use Cases: Quip Setup Starter is a separate managed package that helps set up Quip for Customer 360. Once the starter is installed, you can embed Account Plans, Opportunity Notes, or even your own custom templates into Salesforce objects. Quip Setup Starter helps admins save time by setting up with the required backend connections, while allowing you to customize your setup to your organization’s needs. For more information, see the Quip Setup Starter Support Article. For Web and Desktop

There’s also a new Salesforce permission in admin roles, so it’s easy to make an admin role profile giving access only to Salesforce-related settings. For Web

  • Mark-all-as-read button for chats and favorites: A few weeks ago we made it so that you could mark chats and favorites as read by clicking on their little blue badges.

You’re no longer limited to just those two choices—now you can pick any folder you want. For Desktop and Web

  • Hide the function helper in spreadsheets: Sometimes you don’t need the helper callout that appears when typing out a function’s arguments—we get that.

Comments will also remain visible in the conversation pane, as always. For Desktop and Web
