New Feature
Import, New Navigation, & Guest Access

This week we shipped a new way to get docs into your Almanac workspace.

It's now easier than ever to import multiple documents at once, from products like Microsoft Word, Google Docs, Confluence, Notion, Dropbox Paper, Quip, Evernote, and more.

Our import service supports the following file types:

  • Microsoft Word Docs
  • HTML
  • Markdown
  • Zip files

You can also now export Almanac docs to HTML, Markdown, PDF, or Microsoft Word by clicking the gear icon in the top left corner of any document.

New Navigation

We also shipped a new navigation sidebar for all Almanac workspaces with a clean white background. The navigation layout has also been simplified by removing the (former) Handbooks tab and renaming All Docs to All Files.

Let us know how you like it on Twitter!

Guest Access

We also shipped the ability to invite people to edit a document even if they don't belong to your workspace.

Guest access is perfect for collaborating with freelancers, agencies, consultants, or any person where you want their input on a specific document, but not access to your whole workspace. Workspace guests have their own Almanac account which shows them all the docs they have access to.

In the directory, workspace admins can see all the people who have guest access to at least one doc and upgrade them to a workspace member or remove their access completely.

Other improvements and fixes

  • You can now drag and drop docs and folders on the All Files (formerly All Docs) page.
  • Marking inbox item read no longer closes inbox detail view.
  • Fixed the profiles images in the 'submit feedback' modal that were in the incorrect position.
  • Workspaces now show users' full names instead of abbreviated last names.
  • When logging in, you can now choose which workspace to go to.
