Introducing the Slack integration

We are happy to welcome the Slack integration to our list of Fleep integrations!

Slack integration

Slack and Hipchat are great team communication tools – but they are limited to internal communications. As such, they lack the possibility of communicating across team / organizational borders. The Slack integration with Fleep makes that possible.

More specifically, this means that you can now integrate a Slack channel with a conversation in Fleep. As a result, all messages posted in the respective Slack channel will also show up in the connected conversation in Fleep – - and vice versa.

Let’s say you’ve been added to a team on Slack or perhaps are working with a team who uses Slack for their internal communications. But really, you prefer to use Fleep for managing all of your conversations. Now you can integrate any Slack channel with a conversation in Fleep – and continue to use only Fleep for your communications. You will see all messages from the respective Slack channel(s) in Fleep, and you can respond to them directly in the Fleep conversation!

You can set this up via the outgoing and incoming webhooks support (see detailed setup guide for the Fleep-Slack integration here). And the result will look like this, in Slack and Fleep respectively:

Ben and Lisa are participating in the conversation in Slack (on the left), while Mary and Paul are Fleep users (on the right)

All you need  for configuring the integration is to set it up on both Slack’s side, in the respective channel, and in the conversation you wish to connect in Fleep. If you’re not a member of the team you wish to connect with in Slack, you may need the help of your friends using Slack in steps 2-6, to get the right Incoming webhook URL (which will be the Outgoing URL in the integration setup for the respective Fleep conversation).

P.S. If you or your friends are still wondering about the differences between Fleep and Slack, check out the answers on Quora for some clarifying explanations: Quora - What are the key differences between Slack and Fleep?

Forward message action in Fleep

“Even if you fall on your face, you’re still moving forward.” – Victor Kiam

We have just recently rolled out a brand new feature – forward message action! This means you can now forward messages to another conversation with just a few clicks. This is an addition to our Quote and Copy message actions, and essentially makes forwarding information and files a bit quicker and easier.

Here’s how it works:

forward message fleep

The forward message action works with both Fleep messages and email messages (including HTML emails). Note that any files attached to the original message will also be forwarded along with the message.

Wait, but why?

The forward message action has been a frequent request from our users who have gradually replaced their email clients with Fleep. It serves email conversations especially well, as you may wish to forward a piece of information or a file, while keeping the context.

At the same time, the Quote and Copy message actions may serve other use cases a bit better. In our team, for example, we often use Quote to refer to a question or point made within a conversation, like this…

quote action

And the Copy Message action is great for copy-pasting just the content without grabbing the ‘header’ and > characters that come with Quote:

Fleep copy message

Example: Copy message action in the iPhone app

Nice! What’s next?

The forward message action is the latest of the recent improvements to managing emails in Fleep – following Multiple accounts support, Conversation list updates and the ability to connect your email with Fleep. We hope you’ve enjoyed these updates.

We’re not stopping here though. We keep learning from the feedback we receive – and currently we’re working to make Fleep work better for people with bigger volumes of email conversation and email list scenarios.

How to connect your email with Fleep

connect your email with fleep

Start managing your email conversations in Fleep

Today’s a big day at Fleep. Like really, really big. That’s because starting today, you can connect your email account with Fleep. This means you can send and receive email messages in Fleep while maintaining your existing email address.

Bottom line: This update means you can manage all your team chats and emails in one place.

connect your email with fleep

We have spent the last 6 months testing this feature with a group of Fleep users who were willing to venture for a life after email. Based on the feedback we received, our team has spent countless hours polishing the feature. And now, we’re excited to share it with the world!

Enough talk: You want to take the new stuff for a test drive, right? You absolutely can.

Trying the feature is absolutely risk-free. You can disconnect any time, and we will not, in any way, mess up your inbox in your email client.

Ready to get started?

If you’re a Fleep user already, it couldn’t be easier to get started:

  • Click on your profile in the bottom left corner of the interface in the desktop version – and choose ‘Email settings’ from the menu that appears. Here, you can connect your preferred email account with Fleep.
  • Once connected, all your new incoming emails will also show up in Fleep. Enjoy the improved experience of email conversations and respond to those from Fleep.
  • All email messages you send from Fleep will have the email account you connected as the outgoing email address. All email conversations will be visible in both Fleep and in your email client.

If you use a different email provider, you’ll have to connect your email account with Fleep similarly to any email client setup.

No commitment – disconnect any time you wish.

No small print - there just is no small print. We promise.

Conversation list got an update!

Fleep Conversation listWe’re always working to make Fleep better for you – and today we’re happy to share a few significant changes to your conversation list in Fleep (that’s the list of conversations you see on the left pane in the desktop version and on the mobile apps).

So, what’s new? The short version:

  • New sorting logic in the conversation list (i.e. on the left pane in the desktop version, and the list of conversations on mobile apps)
  • New way of showing unread conversations: toggle All / Unread
  • Improved label management
  • Improvements to managing emails in Fleep: Mark spam action, Email label

Or the longer version, if you’d like…

New sorting logic in the conversation list

Effectively, the new sorting logic means that the conversations ‘jump around’ less on the conversation list – their position is frozen for 1h – and their position is calculated in an intelligent way.

The algorithm we’ve developed takes a few things into account, and is at work for all conversations under all labels (except for the Starred label, which is still sorted alphabetically). Thus, the position of a conversation in the conversation list changes – i.e. it is moved to the top of the list – when at least 1 hour has passed from the most recent change AND one of the following applies:

1. a new message is posted into the conversation
2. when you are @mentioned in a conversation
3. when you search for a conversation and open it
4. when you start typing in a conversation

Do note that the last two changes are only applied locally - that is, in the device / platform you are currently using Fleep on. So, if you search and open a conversation on your mobile app (but do not post a message in there), the conversation will be moved to the top of the list on the mobile app – and not in the web browser or desktop app. At the same time, if you search and open a conversation on your mobile app, and post a message in there as well, then the changed position applies on all platforms.

New way of showing unread conversations: toggle All / Unread

all unread Fleep

At the top of the conversation list, you can now see two buttons you can toggle: All and Unread. (If you can’t see them, make sure you’ve scrolled to the top of the list!)

This new feature is pretty straightforward – when you click on Unread, you’ll be able to see all of your conversations that have unread messages in them (with muted conversations sorted after unmuted ones). And when you click on All, you’ll be able to see all of your conversations.

With this update, we’ve also added a ‘Home’ button – this replaces what used to be ‘All Conversations’. It still takes you to the same place – now it’s just hidden under a different button.

Improved label management

In the new ‘Manage labels’ view, you can now organize your labels in a new and improved way. You can choose what labels are shown in the conversation list, and whether conversations with any particular label will be shown under the Recent and Muted system labels.

manage labels fleep

Additionally, you can use the ‘Manage labels’ view to edit and delete custom labels – and to rearrange the labels as you wish, by dragging and dropping them into the preferred order. This order will apply in both mobile apps and the desktop version of Fleep. Read more about how to manage Fleep conversations with labels.

Improvements to managing emails in Fleep

We’ve been listening to our users’ feedback and have taken several steps to improve how you can start managing your emails from Fleep. These improvements include the ‘Mark spam’ action, the new system label ‘Email’ and the recently announced Automute feature.

mark spam fleepYou can find the ‘Mark spam’ action when you right-click on a conversation on the left pane.

When you mark a conversation as spam, Fleep will make sure that conversation will not appear in your conversation list again.

If you manage your emails from Fleep, you may find the Email label handy. In the ‘Manage labels’ view, you can configure whether the Email label is shown in the conversation list, and whether all conversations with the Email label (that is, all email conversations) will be shown under Recents or under the Muted label.

In other words, you can separate your email conversations from Fleep conversations, if you wish!

That’s pretty neat! What’s next?

We’ve been working tirelessly to improve how Fleep works with email – especially how you can manage your emails in Fleep. We have been testing all of the updates highlighted here, and have received positive feedback so far.

We will continue learning and listening to feedback to make sure that Fleep is a tool that is optimized for productivity and getting work done. We hope you enjoy the updates!

connect your email with FleepVery soon (ahem, March 8), we will be rolling out a new feature that we have been testing with a group of users since last Summer. We have taken our time with this one, to get it right. But it’s worth the wait – the most recent feedback from the test users is along the lines of “Pretty pscyhed, this feature is a home run”, and “I can now live in Fleep.”

I know, right? We can’t wait to share it with you.

Multiple accounts in Fleep apps

We are excited to announce our latest development – support for multiple accounts in Fleep! You can now log in to and switch between several Fleep accounts within the app.

It works on the Android, iOS, Mac and Windows apps. (It is not supported in the web browser. You can either use different web browsers for different accounts or download the native app).

Wait, but why?

multiple accounts in fleep

As we are in the business of simplifying and improving online communications, we realized multiple accounts support was something that was missing in Fleep.

For example, let’s say you’re a salesman by the day and a stand-up comedian by night. You may want to keep your identities separate in Fleep, managing the emails and conversations separately. Now you can!

Or perhaps you’d prefer to keep your personal and work communications separate – while labels may help with this, multiple accounts makes it even easier.

Or maybe your team has a generic Fleep account or email address that several people have access to – be it Support, Sales or Contact Us. Now you can add that to your Fleep app too, alongside your own account, so you no longer have to sign out and sign in to manage all the accounts you have access to.


We have built multiple accounts support for all platforms! You can sign in to multiple accounts from all the native apps, both desktop (Mac, Windows) and mobile (Android, iOS). Once signed in to one account in the desktop apps, find ‘Sign in to Another Account’ from the top menu bar (under ‘File’ in the Mac app, under ‘Fleep’ in the Windows app).

multiple accounts

On the mobile apps (Android and iOS), click on the menu icon (‘burger’ icon that looks like three stripes), and choose to sign to another account from there.

Once logged in, you can easily switch between the different accounts.

For example, Scotty here has his work and personal accounts set up in the Fleep app and he can switch between the two from the Account bar on the left-hand side:

multiple accounts in fleep

In a different scenario, both Paul and Mary have access to the company email address hello@grudly.com, which they manage from Fleep. For quick access, they have both set up the account on their Fleep mobile apps – Android and iPhone respectively:

mobile multiple accounts in fleep

What else should I know about multiple accounts?

Do note that you will receive notifications from all of the accounts that you are logged in to. Also, there is no support for multiple accounts in the web browser. You can, however, use different web browsers for different accounts or download the native app for Windows or Mac to use multiple accounts.

That’s cool! What’s next?

As we’re on a mission to replace email conversations, we have developed a feature that will allow you to migrate your conversations to Fleep and keep your existing email identity. In fact, support for multiple accounts in Fleep apps was built in preparation for that feature.

People often have multiple email addresses or identities, so it became clear to us that Fleep needs to accommodate for that, to have the option to switch between multiple accounts. So, if you’re asking what’s next – connecting your Fleep account with your existing email account is next.
