Introducing the Giphy integration in Fleep

We’ve built a Giphy integration to bring GIFs into your Fleep conversations in a quicker, easier way. Using the Giphy integration couldn’t be easier – it works with the slash command /giphy. Just type /giphy into a Fleep conversation, followed by any keyword and hit Send. This will post a randomly selected GIF from the Giphy library to the conversation like this: giphy integration Yes, we know we’ve cautioned against creating unnecessary noise in team chats, so you wouldn’t have to break up with group chat and all its benefits. Well, this integration is perfect for all the Fun Chats, Watercooler and Random conversations you may have in Fleep. (If you don’t have one of those yet, now would be a good time to create one! ;) ) Should you get tired of the GIF playing on an endless loop, just click on the tiny little > arrow next to the gif to collapse it:

giphy integration fleep

The > button will collapse or expand the gif.

Ready to give it a go? Open Fleep and type /giphy into a conversation to start the GIF fun! Go crazy. Even if just for 5 minutes. P.S: Do note that the /giphy command works on the web and desktop applications only – it is not supported on the mobile apps.

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:

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…

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

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.

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.

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.
