We are happy to announce that GroupCamp is now integrated with Google Contacts for accounts installed from the Google Apps Marketplace.
If you have a GroupCamp account attached to your Google Apps domain, you can now browse all your contacts to add users to your GroupCamp account. Please note that an administrator of your Google Apps domain must first grant access by GroupCamp to Google Contacts data. This is done in the Google Apps administrator control panel.
The rest is straightforward. For instance in the new Guests application in the administrator section use the ‘New guests from your Google Apps contacts’ link to add users from your list of Google contacts.
We have some major updates in August for Account Administrators and Owners.
· The ‘Account’ application dedicated to the owner of a GroupCamp account is now a separate button in the top menu bar.
· We have a brand new and improved ‘Users’ app in the Admin section
· The Company application is now redesigned as a Guests app.
· The Members app in a project has therefore been updated to reflect those changes.
All these new updates are a first step before we add new features to allow for import of contacts from Google and Google Apps accounts
New account app
The screenshot below shows the new design for the Account App.
We have improved the interfaces for viewing account events and invoices. Please note that defining users as administrators is now done in the Users App In the Admin section and not in the Account Apps.
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
As of this week, you can get all your project milestones into your Microsoft Outlook, Google Calendar or Apple ICal in particular. In the milestones application, the iCalendar button will take you to a page where you will be to copy/paste the iCalendar feed into your calendar.
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).
