  • Custom pipeline templates - Custom pipeline templates are back by popular demand so you can build your pipeline from the ground up.

Bug Fixes ๐Ÿž

  • Unified Replies - In the early days of Unified Reply, messages sent using the new feature were ending up in drafts. It's now working as intended - thanks for bearing with us while we ironed out the kinks.

  • Email filters - If you deleted a box with an email filter, that filter couldn't be used in other boxes. Stay tuned for some big updates to email filter behavior in coming weeks ๐Ÿ‘€

  • Files in box timelines - We were having issues displaying Drive files that should have appeared in box timelines. This issue is now "filed" under "resolved" ๐Ÿ“‚.

  • Viewing details from compose window - When composing email drafts that have been added to a box, clicking "show details" opened a blank sidebar. Not exactly what we had in mind ๐Ÿค”.

  • Quick Add duplicates - Adding suggested people and companies from the sidebar of the pipeline view appeared to create a duplicate box in your pipeline ๐Ÿ‘ฏ.

  • Box label behavior while viewing email threads - In some scenarios, clicking on the label didn't open the box information in the sidebar. Now you'll see the relevant information when clicking on a box label at the top of an email thread.

  • Preview pane compatibility - The Streak sidebar wasn't appearing consistently for customers with preview pane enabled.

๐Ÿ‘ค Introducing contact and organization pages

Today weโ€™re launching contact and organization pages to give your team a complete interaction history of the people and companies in your pipelines.

Streak now shows you all of the email communication that your team has had with a particular person or company, plus their box details and contact information in one place.

Streak automatically updates this information so your team has one less thing to manage โ€“ just search for contacts and organizations in the Gmail search bar or open an existing contact or organization card to see their page.

๐Ÿ” Filter results in the Gmail search bar

You can now filter your Streak results in the Gmail search bar. Use the following prefixes to filter results: box:, pipeline:, view:, contact: and org:. new-contact-search.png

We also improved the appearance of your Streak search results โ€“ each result fits on one line to display more results with a cleaner look ๐Ÿงน.

Bug fixes ๐Ÿž

A quick roundup of performance-related bug fixes over the last month:

  • Date formatting in exports โ€“ an issue was causing dates in pipeline exports to format incorrectly. Blame it on a stray comma ๐Ÿ™„.
  • Slack integration โ€“ search commands and notifications in our Slack app were returning errors, which have now been fixed.
  • Adding email drafts to boxes โ€“ fixed an issue that prevented a new email draft from being added to a pipeline in certain scenarios.
  • Create task keyboard shortcut โ€“ one of our favorite keyboard shortcuts (create a task by typing 'w' then 't' in the box view) went on holiday ๐Ÿ–๏ธ. It's back now.
  • Tasks window โ€“ the tasks window got obscured when creating new tasks from the sidebar with an email draft open. Now we're back to multitasking (in Upcoming). โœ”๏ธ
  • Data validation scrolling โ€“ scrolling was broken when viewing long lists of data validation rules in a pipeline.

Reply to your teamโ€™s shared emails

Streak now lets you reply to your teammateโ€™s shared emails, even if you arenโ€™t included on the email.

UI polishing and improvements ๐Ÿฆ‹

Youโ€™ve heard of Spring cleaning, but here are Streak weโ€™ve been busy with Fall polishing ๐Ÿ‚. Recent improvements in the Streak interface include:

  • Refreshed the box timeline for improved readability.
  • Add new columns from the Streak sidebar and the box view.
  • New go-to-box icon in pipelines is consistent with the go-to-box icon in the Streak sidebar. This icon now appears in your pipeline when you hover over box details.
  • Contacts and organizations have a consistent interface, hover state, and action menu in both the sidebar and the pipeline view.

We hope these improvements make your Streak experience more intuitive and delightful ๐Ÿ’ซ. Weโ€™d love to hear your feedback at productfeedback@streak.com.
