  • Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint files
  • Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides
  • PDFs
  • Audio files
  • Video files

Get Notejoy v1.2 from the iOS App Store today!

Today we published our first case study showcasing how Zapier's Ops team stays in sync with Notejoy. This is the first of many upcoming case studies.

We've made a bunch of improvements to the user experience when a user clicks on a note, notebook, or library link and doesn't currently have a Notejoy account.

The user will now experience the following:

  • The user will see a quick teaser page with the name of the note/notebook/library they are trying to view and a prompt to signup with their email to view it
  • If they click the already have an account button, it'll allow them to login and then take them directly to what they were trying to view
  • If they go through the signup process, at the end of the signup process it'll directly take them to what they were trying to view
  • If they don't have access, it'll show them a Request Access toast notification where they can request access from the library admins

This enables a far more seamless workflow if you simply share a link with a colleague on email or Slack.

We've made a bunch of improvements to Notejoy's image experience, including:
  • When you upload a new version of an image, we fixed a previous caching issue that occasionally caused the old version of the image to be shown
  • When you paste an image into Notejoy, we add a timestamp to the image filename to ensure it maintains a unique name
  • When you upload a new profile image, we fixed a previous caching issue that occasionally caused your previous profile image to be shown

We've sped up the time it takes to upload documents into notes by enabling direct upload from your computer to our storage provider. Enjoy those saved minutes!

Notejoy now ensures that if you ever make changes to a note that may not have been saved on the server, you are prompted the next time you come back to Notejoy to recover those unsaved changes.

Your last note edits are now saved locally in the Notejoy app or browser until we know they have been successfully saved by the server, allowing us to prompt you to recover them if they haven't been saved yet.

Keep in mind that if you lose your internet connection and simply keep Notejoy open, Notejoy will always automatically save any pending changes as soon as your connection is re-established.

Notejoy now supports markdown syntax, which allows you to type a few quick keystrokes in the editor to enable a formatting option, ensuring your hands never have to leave your keys.

Type any of the below followed by a space and the format will automatically be applied. You can also press ? in Notejoy to see this full list of markdown syntax.

This complements our already rich keyboard shortcuts to help make you as productive as possible in Notejoy!

We've added a keyboard shortcut to toggle focus view: just press V.

We now allow you to add a custom message when you send a team library invite to someone. After you add an email in the Library Sharing dialog, the optional message field will show up. Just add a short note if you'd like.

It's a great way to explain what Notejoy is all about and how you intend to use it with your collaborator.

In addition to the new features we are continually adding to Notejoy, we also spend time improving Notejoy's infrastructure to deliver a faster, more reliable Notejoy experience.

Today we made a series of infrastructure enhancements that improve the performance, redundancy, and fault-tolerance of our cache servers, a core component of our infrastructure.

What does this mean for you? It means a more consistently fast experience as well as greater protection against downtime or service interruptions.

Today's release is chock-full of enhancements and bug fixes to make your Notejoy experience just a tad bit smoother:

  • We now allow you to request access when you try to view a library or notebook you don't have access to, just like we already do for notes
  • We prevent Google Chrome from offering to translate Notejoy notes, which could inadvertently cause the note to be replaced with the translated version
  • We now default to the Recent view after a variety of canceled actions, like canceling search or after trying to to view notes, notebooks, or libraries you don't have access to
  • We prevent you from leaving a team library where you are the only admin. You can either add another admin or delete the library instead.
  • After updating your credit card on file, we ensure the last 4 digits of the new card are immediately shown so you know the update went through

Notejoy now allows you to play video files that you upload to notes directly without having to first download the file. This is great for storing and playing back creative assets, meeting recordings, and other video files. You can play, pause, or jump to any part of the video file with ease.

Notejoy support all video file types that your browser natively supports, which typically includes mp4, webm, ogg, mov, and more.

This is now available in Notejoy's web and desktop apps and will be coming to the mobile app in the near future.

You can now see the word count for any note in Notejoy. Just select Word Count from the note actions menu in the top-right corner of a note.

You'll be able to see total words, total characters, as well as total characters excluding spaces. Super helpful for tracking the length of blogs, essays, or even composing that perfect tweet.

While we've always allowed you to re-order libraries from the Libraries Settings page, we now let you re-order libraries directly from the sidebar by simply dragging them to exactly where you want them.

Just another way we hope to make Notejoy the most intuitive way to organize your notes, ideas, and projects.

When you receive an email notification from a collaborator in Notejoy, we give you a one-click action to directly view their comment, reaction, and more and as well as participate in the conversation in Notejoy.

But sometimes you really just want to send back a quick email to the collaborator. So we've set the reply-to field of the email notification to the email address of the collaborator. So you can now just hit the reply button to send them an email message.

Keep in mind: this does NOT update Notejoy with your comment, so we still encourage you to head over to Notejoy and add your comments and reactions there to keep all your conversations together in Notejoy. But we wanted to provide this option for those who have been requesting it.

We now allow you to easily collapse libraries in the Notejoy sidebar to hide their notebooks. Simply click the folder icon to the left of the library to collapse & expand it.

This makes it easy to clean up your sidebar to help you focus on the projects you are currently working on.

We've improved library overviews to include a premium badge as well as the current amount of storage used.

The gold header as well as the Premium text indicate this library is an upgraded library that enjoys premium benefits. You can hover over the Premium text to see the library's specific plan type.

The header also now includes the number of megabytes of storage currently used for the library. This will only show up once you've used at least 1 MB of storage.

We added a markdown accelerator for code blocks to make it even quicker to start a code block in the editor. Just type ``` followed by a space or enter and you'll immediately be placed in a code block.

Once you are done with the code block and want to end it, just hit enter 3 times.

You can see the full list of markdown accelerators here.

Notejoy has improved international support for search, ensuring that any queries with non-ASCII characters find all notes that contain those keywords throughout the note body.

Today we are excited to announce the redesign of our code style to support rich syntax highlighting across a wide variety of languages. Our editor will automatically detect the language and apply just the right styling to improve readability of your code.

This is great for sharing database queries, code samples, documenting code, sharing API guides, and so much more!

Syntax highlighting is available today across our web and desktop apps and will be coming soon to our mobile app.

Notejoy now allows you to play audio files that you upload to notes directly without having to first download the file. This is great for storing and playing back meeting recordings, audio notes, and more. You can play, pause, or jump to any part of the audio file with ease.

Notejoy support all audio file types that your browser natively supports, which typically includes wav, mp3, webm, ogg, m4a, aac, flac, and more.

This is now available in Notejoy's web and desktop apps and will be coming to the mobile app in the near future.

We've upgraded the spell checker within Notejoy for Mac to now support multiple languages! It will automatically detect your language based on your OS preferences and apply the appropriate language spell checker.

The spell checker supports all languages that Google Chrome supports.

We've added the divider style into the styling bar so it's easier than ever to separate sections within your note.

You can also type "---" + enter to create a divider directly from your keyboard.

You can now use the escape key to close any dialog within Notejoy.

We've increased the storage limits in Notejoy Premium. You can now upload files up to 1GB in size and up to 20GB of library storage!

We've updated our Privacy Policy to reflect Notejoy's compliance with General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), effective May 25th, 2018.

The changes include increased transparency on what data we collect and how we use. In addition, we've updated the policy with information about your rights and choices with respect to your data.

While the GDPR only applies to the personal data of EU residents, we believe everyone deserves the same level of protection and control over their personal data. As a result, the updates to our Privacy Policy apply globally.

You can review the latest privacy policy here.

As always, if you have any questions about our privacy policy, please feel free to contact us.

Today we launched an update to our Slack integration to take advantage of Slack's latest feature: actions. You can now create a note from any Slack conversation in just one click!

While we've always enabled you to use our /notejoy grab command to create notes, you can now do so without having to remember the command at all.

Just click on the More Actions menu (the triple dots in the top-right corner of a message) and select "Create a note...". You'll then see a dialog to allow you to customize the note's title, notebook, and body, all without leaving Slack.

If you haven't yet installed Notejoy's Slack app, get started here.

We've updated the notification tray across our web, desktop, and mobile apps to now show 20 notification items, so you can easily go back further in your notification history.

Based on your feedback, we've made it so you can now double click a note in the notes list to open it in a new window. This mirrors the experience in other popular notes app, making it just a bit faster & easier to transition over!

We've always been eager to hear your feedback on what exactly you'd like to see added to Notejoy. Today we are excited to make it even easier for you to share your feature requests as well as vote on other user suggestions. So head over to the Feature Requests page today and help shape Notejoy's roadmap!

You can now cancel your account directly from Account Settings instead of having to reach out to support.

We've made it even quicker to add new team libraries to your paid plan. Now directly from the Add Team Library dialog you'll have the option to add the new team library to your organization.

This saves you the step of having to subsequently go to Plan Settings and add the library to your organization's plan. This option will only appear for organization admins.

Just another way we try to save you every last click!

We added a security page to help communicate all the security best practices that we leverage to keep your team's data safe on Notejoy.

Today we are excited to launch the ability to view the entire history of a note as well as restore a note to any previous point in time in Notejoy Plus or Premium.

There are many great ways to take advantage of note history:

  • Working on a note with others? You can now easily see exactly who made what edits to understand each individual's contributions and perspective.
  • Writing a new direction on a paragraph but decide it just isn't working out? No worries. You can easily go back and restore to a previous rendition.
  • Did you or someone else accidentally delete crucial content in a note? You can rest assured that you always have the history of edits available to you to restore from.

To see a note's history, simply click the three dots in the top right corner of a note and select History.

You'll then see the History bar, which allows you to scroll through the entire history of note edits by author and time. You can click on the specific edit you want to see or use the UP and DOWN arrows to navigate through edits.

When viewing an edit you'll see specific changes that were made with additions highlighted in green and deletes shown with strikethroughs.

If you want to restore to a specific version, select the note version from the History bar and then press Restore. After you confirm the restore, the note will be updated to reflect the specific version you restored. This new version will be added to the note history, so you can always go back to a previous version if you like.

History is recorded for all notes created or edited after April 25, 2018.

To take advantage of note history, upgrade to Notejoy Plus or Notejoy Premium today!

Today we are excited to announce the launch of Notejoy's deep integration with Trello, a popular task management app, to make it completely seamless to keep your notes and tasks in sync!

Both Notejoy and Trello share a love for fast, beautiful, and simple user experiences. So we jumped at the opportunity to bring our apps together to help users be more productive every day.

With Notejoy's Trello integration, you can:

  • Attach an existing Notejoy note to a Trello card
  • Create a new Notejoy note from a Trello card
  • See note details including authors, when it was edited, and more right in Trello
  • Directly view & collaboratively edit notes right in Trello

How teams can use Notejoy's Trello integration

We built this integration to address a common pain point where teams often need to link their Trello tasks with more details or content. Teams can use this integration to:

  • Attach blog posts drafts to a Trello board for managing content
  • Attach product specs to a Trello board for managing a product roadmap
  • Attach customer feedback notes to a Trello board for onboarding customers
  • And so much more!

How to get started

  1. Go to the board you want to install the Notejoy Power-Up on Trello
  2. Select Power-Ups from the Board Menu
  3. Search for Notejoy and click Enable

Here's how to take advantage of each benefit of the Trello integration:

Attach a note to a Trello card

Attaching a note to a Trello card makes it easier than ever to keep tasks & their associated notes seamlessly in sync. From a Trello card, press the Notejoy Power-Up and select Attach a Note. You'll then be able to search your notes to find your desired one.

To make sure all Trello board members can access the attached Notejoy note, make sure the note is in a team library and you have given all board members access to the team library.

Create a new note from a Trello card

Sometimes you'll start your workflow with a Trello card. In that case, we've made is super quick to create a new Notejoy note where you can keep all the task details. Press the Notejoy Power-Up button on the Trello Card and select Create a Note. We'll even automatically suggest a name for you based on the card name.

See note details right in Trello

Once you've attached a note to a Trello card, whoever comes to the Trello card will always see the latest details of the note, including note authors, when it was last modified, it's title, and description.

View & collaboratively edit notes in Trello

When you click on an attached note on a Trello card, you'll be able to see the full note right inside of Trello. You'll even be able to directly edit the note from Trello, including collaborating with other editors regardless of where they may be editing (Trello, Notejoy's web, desktop, or mobile apps).

If you need to go deeper, like comment or react to a note, you can click the Open in Notejoy link to be deep-linked to the note in Notejoy.

Take your notes everywhere with Notejoy's desktop & mobile apps

Trello users can now take advantage of the full power of Notejoy, including fast and beautiful apps across web, desktop, and mobile that bring your notes everywhere you go.

In addition real-time editing, comments, @mentions, reactions, and more make it the ideal platform for sharing notes with your entire team.

How to get started

  1. Go to the board you want to install the Notejoy Power-Up on Trello
  2. Select Power-Ups from the Board Menu
  3. Search for Notejoy and click Enable

You can now sort notes in a notebook alphabetically or by creation date, in addition to the default sort by last modified date. To change the sort, click the sort icon at the top left of the notes list. Once you change the sort, it will be applied to all notebooks going forward.

Keep in mind the sort preference only applies to you. Other notebook users will need to update their own sort to see notes sorted differently.

You've told us how much you enjoy dragging & dropping images directly into the note editor, so we've brought that same experience to uploading documents into a note. So you can now simply drag a document from your desktop (or other apps like iMessage) directly on the note editor and it'll automatically be uploaded right into the note.

The document embed will be located at the most recent location of the cursor in the note. So make sure to place your cursor where you'd like the document located prior to dragging.

We're always looking for more ways to make you even more productive, so keep the feedback coming!

To make it easy to view & edit multiple notes at once, Notejoy now allows you to pop out a note into it's own window at any point. You can do this with as many notes as you choose and is available across our web & desktop apps.

Just select the New Window menu item in the more actions menu in the top-right corner of a note.

Today we launched the ability to recover notes that have been deleted and removed from the Trash to help ensure you never lose any of your team's valuable information.

You'll see a recover deleted notes link at the bottom of the Trash that will bring up this dialog. Then click on recover next to any note and it'll move it back to the Trash. From there you can drag it to whichever notebook you like.

You'll be able to see all notes that were deleted from libraries you are an admin of in the dialog. If you're trying to recover a note in a library you aren't an admin in, please contact your admin to assist you.

Recover deleted notes plus our recently launched enhanced Trash ensures you can never lose your team's most valuable information.

To take advantage of this, upgrade now to Notejoy Plus or Notejoy Premium. Learn more about our paid plans at Plans & Pricing.

We added a chat widget to our homepage, so come and chat with us!

We've improved Notejoy's Trash to allow you to see deleted notes that:

  • You deleted
  • You authored
  • Or you were an admin of the library it was in

This makes it easy for all the right people to be able to see trashed notes and recover them if needed.

Today we launched the ability for a user to request access to a library when they don't already have the needed permission.

When a user tries to view a note, react to a note, or do another action in Notejoy for which they do not yet have access, they'll be notified that they need permission.

From the notification the user will have the option to request access to the library. The request will default to the permission-level they need to perform their requested action. But the user is free to request a different permission level if they desire. They'll also have an option to provide a short message for why they want access.

The request will be sent to each of the admins of the library via email. They'll be given a one-click option to grant the requested access to the user, significantly speeding up the permissions process.

Today we launched the ability to add team members to libraries with Can view or Can comment permissions, limiting them to only viewing or commenting on existing notes.

This is super helpful when you find you want a small group of collaborators editing notes while the rest of the team is simply viewing or commenting. This can be useful for sharing HR policies, onboarding materials, corporate communications, and so much more.

When inviting a new team member from the library sharing dialog, simply pick Can view or Can comment from the permission drop-down. You can also change an existing team member's permission by simply selecting the new desired permission from the drop-down next to their name.

To take advantage of this, upgrade now to Notejoy Plus or Notejoy Premium. Learn more about our paid plans at Plans & Pricing.

Today we launched iPhone X support to make Notejoy look beautiful on everyone's new favorite device.

Get Notejoy v1.1 from the iOS App Store now.

Today we launched a simplified iOS signup to make it super quick to get started with Notejoy. It's now just one-click signup with a Google account or a few simple fields to get going with any e-mail address.

We've also added a forgot password option into the app, which will send you a quick link and then immediately give you access to the app.

Get Notejoy v1.1 from the iOS App Store to enjoy these updates.

Today we launched the Notejoy iOS app for iPhone & iPad across all 155 international markets.

So if you haven't already, head over to the App Store and download it now.

Today we launched an all-new Help Center to help you learn more about Notejoy and answer all of your questions.

You can easily search the Help Center for your feature questions. If you can't find an answer, we encourage you to reach out to us via the Contact Us link on the page as we'd love to hear from you and keep adding new helpful content to the help center.

Just click the Help menu item in the user menu in the bottom left corner of Notejoy to get to the Help Center.

Today we publicly launched Notejoy and opened it up for any user to signup.

We're thankful for all our early access users that have given us incredible feedback over the last two years to help us iterate on Notejoy and make it what it is today!

We were featured on Product Hunt today, so we'd encourage you to check out the post. I also wrote a blog post sharing the story behind Notejoy here.

At Notejoy, we believe in empowering you to be notified if and when you want to be of activity happening on your teams. We've always supported granular controls of notifications across all notification channels, including email, Slack, desktop, and mobile.

Today we are taking this even further by allowing you to control in app notifications as well. Don't want to see the notification badge turn red and the associated notification menu items for certain activity types? Now you can easily disable them by turning off specific in app notifications from Notification Settings.

We just launched an update to the Notejoy iOS app bringing new styles and features we've added on desktop to mobile, including:
  • Custom highlight colors
  • Highlight comments
  • Sub-tasks
  • Dividers
  • Invite accepted notifications

We've also fixed some of the bugs you've helped us identify, including:
  • Embedded images are no longer awkwardly stretched
  • Embedded videos no longer cause notes to reload
  • Checkboxes no longer check due to accidental taps
We believe that one of the core values of Notejoy is enabling incredibly fast search to help you find exactly what you are looking for.

That's why today we are excited to announce another important enhancement to making search awesome: the ability to see your search term highlighted throughout the note title & body. It's now quicker than ever to find relevant information and see exactly where in a note your term is contained. We'll even scroll the note to the first occurrence for you. And you don't have to worry about toggling this on & off: we take care of that for you. As soon as you click into the note to edit, we'll remove all the search highlights and return to your regular note editing experience.

Check it out on your next search.

We're eager to make it as easy as possible to get started with Notejoy, so today we are launching an enhancement to our existing Import Documents functionality. You can now directly import the content of a Google Document into a Notejoy note's body in addition to the existing ability to embed a link to the original Google Document.

We do our best to maintain your original styles, including headers, bold, italic, bullets, links, and more. However, tables, multi-level bullets, and underlines are not currently imported.

To start importing Google Documents, click the Add Note drop-down and select Import Documents.

It's our goal to make you more efficient and productive everyday as you collaborate with your team. While many of our enhancements are focused on improving the quality of that experience, we also want to give you peace of mind as you use Notejoy.

Today we are introducing the ability to export all your notes to Google Drive, ensuring that as you use Notejoy for your team, you always have the option to take your notes out whenever you'd like.

The new export notes functionality allows you to pick a Notejoy library or notebook and have it exported to a Google Drive folder. Each of your notes will automatically be converted to a Google Document, preserving all your text, images, formatting, and styles.

From Google Drive, you can easily convert the exported notes to other file formats, including Microsoft Word, OpenDocument Format, or Rich Text Format files.

To access the export notes feature, visit your Account Settings.

We'll now notify you when a library invite you sent to a team member has been accepted. This way you'll always know when your team is on-board.
We've added a horizontal rule divider to make it easy for you to easily separate sections within your note.

Just type --- and follow it by a space or enter and it'll automatically be converted into a horizontal line divider.

You can now easily rotate an image in the image viewer. Just click the rotate icon in the image viewer and it'll rotate and save the rotated image.

You can now easily duplicate a note just by right-clicking on it and selecting duplicate.

This becomes super useful when you start to use notes as templates. Maybe it's an OKR template, a product spec template, or go-to-market campaign template. Duplicating notes enables you to easily create a template and then create new copies of it in seconds!

Checklists now support sub-tasks. Just press tab on a task and it'll automatically be indented. We support any number of levels of sub-tasks. Then just hit backspace to go back to the previous level. Or enter to end a checklist.

We've also made it quicker to start a checklist. Just type [] at the beginning of a line and it'll be converted to a checklist.

To help your team get on-board, we now automatically send an invite reminder two days after you initially sent them an invite if they haven't yet signed up.
You can now edit comments in Notejoy. Just click the dots next to the comment in Chatter and hit Edit.

We now enable you to customize the highlight color you use to draw attention to text within a note. Comes in really handy when conveying status, reporting on OKRs, and so much more!

Today we launched one of our most requested features: the ability to create a comment associated with specific text within a note. We call these highlight comments. We've worked hard to make this as elegant of an experience as the rest of Notejoy.

To take advantage of highlight comments, select some text in the editor, press the comment icon that shows up, and type your comment. Note authors will receive a notification and all note viewers will then be able to click on your highlight to view the associated comment in Chatter.

As part of this release, we are also introducing archived comments to enable you to archive a comment you've dealt with. This will ensure the comment's associated text is no longer highlighted within the editor as well as hide the comment within Chatter. To archive a comment, hover over the comment in Chatter, click the dots, and press Archive.

Keep your feedback coming as we're eager to make Notejoy the most productive way to collaborate with your team!

We now allow you to take full advantage of productivity enhancements in iOS 11 with Slide Over and Split View support, enabling you to have Notejoy open side-by-side with any other app you may be using.

We also fixed a bug that caused checklists to not persist checked on mobile.

To get the latest build, open the TestFlight app on your iOS device and press Update next to Notejoy.

You asked us to allow you to expand the Chatter Bar width when you are focusing on the discussion around a note. So today we're enabling you to do exactly that. Just drag the column to expand it to your hearts content.

We released a new version of the iOS app today to fix crashes introduced by iOS 11. Previously when you attempted to edit a note after upgrading to iOS 11, the app would crash within a few seconds. This has now been resolved.

To get the latest build, open the TestFlight app on your iOS device and press Update next to Notejoy.
Today we launched a new marketing site to showcase the benefits of Notejoy to new users. We also added a post-onboarding tour to help educate new users on what Notejoy is all about.

Today we launched a new version of the iOS app with a host of improvements:

Much smoother animations
We've significantly improved the performance of animations used in the app, resulting in a far smoother experience when moving between screens throughout the app.

Landscape mode
We've enabled landscape mode, which ends up being especially useful when using Notejoy on an iPad.



Improved intermittent connection robustness
We've significantly improved how Notejoy handles losing internet connection. Since slight dips in signal can happen at any moment on a mobile device, especially when moving between networks, WiFi routers, cell towers, etc, this ends up being critical for creating a robust experience on mobile and ensuring you never lose an edit you've made on the go.

To get the latest build, open the TestFlight app on your iOS device and press Update next to Notejoy.
A few stability updates to the Notejoy mobile app:
  • Added an unsaved indicator when you attempt to leave a note that is currently being saved to prevent any potential edits being lost
  • Fixed an issue that could cause a note edit to not be re-sent during intermittent Internet connection
  • Added additional error tracking to help diagnose bugs & issues
Notejoy now gives team admins the ability to easily monitor usage across their users & libraries. You can easily see weekly actives, weekly note views, and weekly notes created for the past 3 months.

Team Activity is available in Notejoy Premium. You can upgrade to Notejoy Premium from Plan Settings. Once upgraded, click on the Team Activity menu item in the user menu in the bottom-left corner of Notejoy.

Notejoy takes the security and privacy of our teams and users seriously and are excited today to announce the availability of full end-to-end encryption in Notejoy.

With end-to-end encryption, Notejoy ensures:
  • All users use SSL to communicate with Notejoy's servers across all clients (web, desktop, and mobile)
  • Data stored in Notejoy's databases is encrypted at rest using industry standard AES-256 encryption algorithm
  • All data backups are also stored in an encrypted state
  • All images and documents attached to notes are also encrypted at rest on our cloud storage provider using industry standard AES-256 encryption algorithm
  • Encryption keys are stored independently from underlying encrypted data and files to further protect user data
End-to-end encryption is available in Notejoy Premium, which we are also introducing today. Notejoy Premium is available for $12.50/user/mo (billed annually) or $15/user/mo (billed monthly).

To get started, upgrade to Notejoy Premium in Plan Settings. There you'll be able to select which team libraries you'd like to upgrade and you'll be automatically billed for team members of those libraries. Those team libraries will then be immediately encrypted. All upgraded team member's personal libraries will also be encrypted to ensure both individual and team data is always protected.
We've released an update to the iPhone app with the following improvements:
  • The Recent and Starred views now show the notebook where the note is contained
  • You can now see the current saving / saved status of a note while editing
  • Fixed an edge case that could result in not seeing the most up-to-date version of a note
Today we released a few enhancements and fixes:
  • The Recent and Starred views now show the notebook where the note is contained
  • When you hover over the notebook name in the Recent, Starred, and Search views, you'll be able to see the library where the note lives
  • Fixed an issue where a new notebook was not created in the correct library when currently looking at a Library Overview
  • The Recent view no longer show notes that are in someone else's Trash
  • Fixed an edge case that could result in not seeing the most up-to-date version of a note

  • You can use Cmd+N to create a new Notejoy window
  • All open Notejoy windows are now listed and togglable in the Window menu
  • Improved the performance of the spell checker
  • Fixed a few errors that occasionally occurred when you lost Internet connection
We're excited today to announce Notejoy's deep integration with Slack, the #1 team messaging app. Slack and Notejoy now work seamlessly together, allowing you to take advantage of best-of-breed tools for communication & collaboration to make it truly effortless to capture, share, and discuss your team's work.

With Notejoy's Slack integration, you can now:

You can also configure precisely which Notejoy notifications you want to receive across each of our supported notification channels (Email, Slack, Desktop, and Mobile) in Settings.



See the latest Notejoy activity in Slack
You can now help your whole team to stay on top of activity in Notejoy with Slack Activity Updates. Activity Updates allow you to automatically post activity from a Notejoy library or notebook to a Slack channel. You can set the frequency to real-time updates so that all likes, reactions, comments, mentions, and pins are automatically posted to a channel. Or you can set the frequency to daily or weekly highlights to just have the newest and most popular notes from the previous day or week posted to a channel.



You can configure each of the rules for what activity updates get shared to Slack channels from Settings.



Grab conversations and save to note with /notejoy grab
We've all been there when a Slack conversation should really be captured for longevity. We've made that easier than ever with the new /notejoy grab command. Just type "/notejoy grab" in any channel and it'll automatically create a new note with the last 10 messages saved. You can specify the number of messages to grab by instead typing "/notejoy grab 25". After running the command, you'll get a chance to specify which notebook you'd like to add the note to as well as whether you want to post the new note to the channel.



Search and share notes with /notejoy search
Sometimes you want to share a Notejoy note with folks in a channel. We've made it super quick to search for and share that note all within Slack. Just type "/notejoy search " and you'll see the top 5 search results for your search term within Slack. You can then select one to post to the channel.



See your recent notes with /notejoy recent
Similarly you may want to share a note that you just finished editing in a channel. Just type "/notejoy recent" and you'll see the 5 most recent notes that you edited and then with one click you can post it to the channel.



Post notes to Slack
You can now quickly post any note in Notejoy to a Slack channel. Click the share icon in the top-right corner of a note in Notejoy and select Post to Slack. You'll be able to specify the channel and an optional message and then the note will be immediately posted to the channel.



See note previews in Slack
Now whenever you share a Notejoy note url within Slack, it will be automatically expanded into a rich note preview, showcasing the note's title, preview, authors, image, location, and date. It's never been easier for channel members to know exactly what your note is all about. Previews are generated for any notebook or library urls you share within Slack as well.

You can now easily re-order notebooks within a library or move a notebook to a different library. Just drag it in the sidebar to exactly where you'd like it.

Wondering whether someone has accepted your invite to a library? Now you can easily check from the invite users dialog. You can even re-send the invite to easily remind them to get on-board.

We've made adding images to notes even faster! Just drag an image from your desktop on top of the editor or copy/paste an image into the editor from any application, including your browser, desktop, Finder, a screenshot, iMessage, and more. It'll then be instantly added to the note and uploaded.

Just another way we save you clicks and make it faster than ever to capture your ideas.

We've expanded our support for embedded Google documents to mobile. You can now easily click on embedded Google Docs, Sheets, or Slides and view the full contents of the documents right from the Notejoy app.

We heard from all of you that you've been enjoying notebook overviews to quickly give you the highlights of a given notebook and that you'd love to see the same within personal notebooks. So we went ahead and added them. Any personal notebook with at least 5 notes will also now have a notebook overview.

We've made it even quicker for you to send us feedback on Notejoy. Just click the Feedback? link in the bottom-right corner of Notejoy and send away.

We'd love to hear from you on what you love about Notejoy and what you'd like to see improved. Found a bug? Have a question? Let us know!

You can now easily add or remove note authors from any note. Did someone else contribute to this work and want to make sure they get credit? Go ahead and add them as an author! Or did you make a small edit but don't want to show up as an author? You can now easily remove yourself.

Just click the Manage Authors menu item in the note actions menu in the top-right corner of the editor.

We've made it even simpler to share a library with your entire team by setting a team library to be accessible to anyone with an email address at your domain.
