The last month has been a busy one.

We’ve been working hard to get the features out that you, our users, have been asking for. I’m pleased to announce that we’ve pushed out three major releases to Twine – all of which have come from the collective feedback of the companies using Twine to connect their workplaces. So, without further ado, here’s what’s new:

Tell the right people about your news

Due to popular demand,  blog publishers are now have the ability to notify users when a new post is published.
You’ve got the option to limit who gets notified based on department, office or groups – so you can target your posts at the right people. As an admin or user with blog permissions, you’ll find this in the edit screen for new and existing blog posts.

Reply to group posts

Groups is a great tool and using it, important work gets done around the world.

We’ve now made it even better. You can now respond on posts, and continue the conversation there – a simple upgrade that makes the whole feature much more powerful.

It’s a private space to post questions, ideas or links to your teammates – without adding another email chain their inboxes.


Upload your own favicon

For the uninitiated, that’s the name for the little picture that appears on your browser’s tab when you’re on a website. We’ve made it easy to upload your own, so your version of Twine can feel like your own.

To do this, head to Settings > Theme and then scroll down to the assets section. You’ll need a 32 x 32 pixel image in .ico format – we recommend using the same one that your website uses.


And a few more things:

We’ve also snuck a few other things in.

  • Editing conflict alerts: if you’re editing a blog, knowledge item or forms at the same time as someone else, you’ll now be warned of what’s going on. No more content conflicts!
  • Knowledge admins now have the ability download mandatory read names as a CSV file.
  • New field on forms: date range picker. We’ve added a field to forms that allows you to specify a range of dates. Handy for things like time off forms.

Keep the feedback coming in!
