This blog entry from GroupCamp shows how you can attach files to your comments by email replies.
- All image files (png, gif, bmp, jpg) are presented with a thumbnails in the Files view. With a preview mode which allows them to be viewed without being downloaded,
- the deletion of comments by users or administrators is now possible under certain conditions.
When a user adds a comment, the comment can now deleted within 15 minutes after the comment has been deleted. This solves issues related to typos or comments posted too hastily..
For Managers and Administrators, comments may be deleted at any time. Please note the following.
- When a comment has been deleted, a message will indicate that the comment has been deleted,
- Comments sent to followers by email prior to the deletion cannot (obviously) be cancelled. Replies to the comments will be added to the thread.
We know how important it is for our users to have strong integration between GroupCamp apps. We have now added the ability for users to add links to shared files in your project from a wiki page.
As shown in the screenshot below, all shared files are displayed with their respective icons. Mail objects which are forwarded to your projects using the project dropbox email are also displayed.
We are pleased to announce that in our latest release, we have transformed folders into tags for users who need multiple levels to organize their files for internal projects or for collaborative projects with clients.
For existing accounts, folders are now tags
Upload files with drag and drop, cross-projects Files view. Task lists options, private apps and more
We are happy to say that thanks to your feedback the GroupCamp Product team has brought a series of improvements in its new release. Here they are:
Files app : drag and drop files to upload them
To access the drag and drop feature, please use the ‘multiple uploads’ form. You can now drag and drop files from your files browser or your desktop directly into the Groupcamp Files app to upload them. Supported browsers include; Firefox and Chrome. Hopefully Internet Explorer 10 and version 6 of Safari will support it in the near future (tech talk: this implementation is based on HTML5).
Create and share Google Docs in your projects or link to Google Docs files of your Google Apps domain.
For our Google Apps users who were eager to use GroupCamp Project with their Google Docs files, we are happy to announce that we have released our first intégration with Google Docs. This release comes alongside the Gmail Gadget release (see previous post)
Creating Google Docs from within GroupCamp Project
For those of you who had been struggling back and forth downloading files from Google Docs to upload them into GroupCamp Project (or vice versa), it is now possible to create a Google Docs from within your online GroupCamp project. You can choose between three types of file: document, spreadsheet or présentation. The file is automatically created in your Google Apps account with access to all users of your Google Apps domain to ease collaboration within your project. Please note that you can always change the sharing setting in Google Docs but bear in mind that you need not all your GroupCamp Project members might need to have access to the file especially in multi-company projects.
By creating the file from within your GroupCamp project you can use all your usual project features on your Google Docs : adding comments, managing versions, and link a file to an assigned task. The file can be edited by clicking on the link. Please note that files that are converted into a Google Docs format have a specific icon in GroupCamp (very much the same icon as in Google Docs)
Linking to existing files in Google Docs
You can also choose to link to an existing Google Docs file. When browsing your Google Docs account, GroupCamp will display all the files to which you have access and the sharing setting will be displayed next to the file. This information will let you determine whether that sharing setting should be changed to allow for all project members to access the file (by clicking on the link).
Use To, Cc or Bcc with your project feed email address to upload your emails and files into GroupCamp projects.
