October 26: Recent bug fixes

The Streak team has been working to keep things running smoothly and looking fresh. Here's a write up of recent fixes:

🔄 Some box timelines were failing to load

Although not a widespread occurrence, some box timelines weren't loading; something we take seriously no matter how often it's happening! We resolved this issue to make sure you can find your emails, tasks, call logs, and more when you open a box.

📨 Date of Last Email Received magic column not updating

The "Date of Last Email Received" magic column wasn't updating when you received incoming emails, possibly indicating that you were being ghosted (at least as far as magic columns are concerned). Good news - you weren't! We've fixed this issue.

🔔 Notification emails not boxed

Notification emails for mentions in comments, tasks, and other activity weren't added to boxes. They're now being added, so you'll be able to find relevant details and make updates in the sidebar when you get notifications.

👥 Duplicates in contact suggestions

Streak was suggesting contacts that were already added to boxes, sometimes causing duplicates. This was largely due to capitalization (ex: JANE@ACME.COM vs. jane@acme.com) and while we urge you to use your indoor voices while adding contacts, we also fixed the issue.

🏢 Company field not updating for organizations

Streak helps you out by automatically linking contacts with their related organizations in your pipelines, which makes us happy because we're all about saving time where we can. However, the contact's "company" field wasn't updating after linking. This has been fixed.

📌 Opening email from box view doesn't auto-open sidebar

When you opened an email from the box view, the Streak sidebar (with all that good box info!) wasn't opening next to the email thread. We fixed this so you can see the email… AND the box details.

📄 Files not pulled into boxes

Files attached to some older emails weren't being pulled into boxes. The issue has been resolved and files are pulled in along with their emails.

🧹 Contact sidebar interface

The contact sidebar was misbehaving when scrolling down to find all the juicy details, resulting in overlapping icons at the top. This has been smoothed out.

Create boxes in bulk from your inbox

Today’s launch lets you create boxes in bulk by selecting emails in your inbox and adding them to a pipeline.

Choose which emails are important and which pipeline they belong in, then watch Streak create a box for each one, add a contact and all of their emails with your team, and even fill in some data for you.

🕑 builds a timeline of your entire team’s interactions with a person or company automatically.

🔔 Alerts you when you’re about to email someone that has already been in touch with someone on your team.

▶️ Provides your team with ready-to-use pipeline templates for quick setup, no matter your use case.

Bug fixes 🐞

Our eng team has been busy fixing and polishing Streak - thank you to everybody who took the time to report a bug! Here’s an overview of recent fixes and UI polish – find a more detailed roundup in our blog.

📬 Mail merge – We fixed a few bugs that caused mail merges to fail or get stuck without completing the send. (Psst - customers on our Pro and Enterprise plans can now send more mail merges each day. Check out how many emails you can send with mail merge each day in our knowledge base)

➡️ Sidebar – The sidebar was occasionally getting stuck while loading or not opening automatically when viewing certain emails. It’s now back in action giving you the context you need and letting you update pipelines from your inbox.

📱 Mobile – Using Streak contact cards to begin a call and send it to your phone was not working. We’ve got you back to smiling and dialing.

💅 UI – We launched several smaller UI fixes to keep Streak looking good. Among these were battles with dancing buttons, missing shadows, and other visual vexations.

😁 Everything else – We tackled issues affecting formulas, reports, shortcuts, and more. Head over to our blog for details!

Direct links to pipelines, saved views, and boxes

Look for the link icon at the top of your pipelines, saved views, and boxes to share a direct link with your teammates or drop a link in your favorite collaboration tools.

Bug fixes 🐞

A quick roundup of (relatively) recent performance-related bug fixes:

  • "Show Details" for email drafts 📝 - Clicking "show details" in email drafts that were composed from a contact card in your pipeline would show whatever last appeared in the sidebar, not the correct box information.

  • Blank messages in Mail Merge 📤 - If you hit "send" on a mail merge before Gmail saved the draft (which happens a few seconds after the last edit is made), you might send a blank email or an outdated draft to your recipients. We've fixed this issue, and we applaud you for getting those mail merges out quickly!

  • Blank screen after email compose 🖥️ - composing an email by clicking the envelope icon for a contact in your box view caused the Gmail window to go blank.

  • Empty reports dashboard 📊 - the reports dashboard wasn't displaying reports for some users. Reports have been restored!

  • Error while importing organizations 🏢 - The importer tool was returning an error if "https://" was included at the beginning of an organization's domain. We've resolved this issue so you can continue organizing your organizations.

  • Adding multiple emails to Streak 💌 - Selecting multiple emails in your inbox and clicking the Streak icon opened the new Home sidebar, rather than allowing you to add the emails to boxes.

  • Streak Upcoming loading 🔄 - If you don't have any current tasks in Streak Upcoming, the sidebar would appear blank or continuous loading. We've fixed it so you can once again see your gloriously empty to-do list.

  • Searching for boxes in new pipelines 🔍 - boxes added to newly created pipelines were not appearing in search results, but we searched for and found a fix!

  • Call logs and meeting notes 📞 - we fixed two issues. First, pasting a long word or link into a log or note would cause the log or note window to right-align to the end of the word or link. Second, opening an existing call log or meeting note and starting the timer would start the time from 0:00, rather than continuing from the previous time.

  • Disappearing linked boxes 🔗 - we fixed an issue where moving a box to a new stage removed it's linked boxes.
