Isn’t it great that we can integrate?

Integrations in FleepSo, you’re spending a lot of time communicating about the changes you’ve made or the latest tweets that have showed up? Or maybe your engineers need a little bit more visibility into who’s committed what exactly and when? Why not try to automate some of the tasks to save time from having to go look for the information you need.

To help you out with that we’ve got a couple of things to show you! Did you know that Fleep has integrations and a public API that you can build on? If you didn’t, then this is exactly for you. With our integrations you can create an easy to follow notification feed into your Fleep conversations so that you’ll have all the important stuff together in one place or in the right conversations.

Look at what we’ve got!

GitHub, Bitbucket and GitLab integrations to fleep about the changes in your repositories. For us, GitHub integration helps to keep the engineering teams in tune with what everyone else is doing at the same time.

Zapier integrations to create different Zaps that send messages from Zapier into Fleep conversations. This one has multiple different usecases, we just tried out Twitter feed in the team.

For those that love to track and analyze data there’s also New Relic and PivotalTracker integrations.

And last but not least, JIRA and Confluence integrations, for those that are tracking incidents or bugs or simply love a Wiki on steroids experience. These integrations post messages about things that are happening in those environments, which helps to keep everyone in the same communication loop, which in the end… results in smarter collaborations.

What if I need something more… advanced?

For those of you that wish to build more complex integrations, the ones where you need more than a simple message post, you should go check out Fleep API.

We have compiled together documentation to help you on your way. Should you need more help from a Fleep engineer to understand things, then don’t be shy to ask for help via Fleep Support. We’ll get you in touch with someone on our side!

Not sure if you’re idea is unique? We suggest you check out what the awesome Fleep community has already produced for everyone’s benefit:

  • Hubot adapter for Fleep – Enables you to add a Hubot bot to Fleep conversations and stir up some fun stuff!
  • Twitter2Fleep - A simple tool that forwards selected tweets to Fleep conversations
  • FleepIRC - An IRC and Fleep integration for the chatty oldschool IRC nerds that just can’t pull themselves away from it.
  • Flow - An unofficial Fleep client for Windows Phone 8.1.

And if there’s something missing in the list of integrations that you absolutely need, let us know! Ping our Fleep Support chat and we will add it to our wishlist!

How can I get started with integrations?

Simple as that, open or create the conversation where you’d like to get the incoming messages in the future and click on the little gear icon on your right - Conversation settings. From there you’ll find another button called Integrations. From there you can choose which integration to setup and will also create a webhook.

How to create a new GitHub webhook in FleepFurther instructions on how to set up each of the integrations mentioned before are always available on our API & Integrations page. Go check it out!

Hurray, Fleep ID has arrived!



I have important news to share with you – today we are launching Fleep ID. This is the next step in our mission to replace email conversations. Fleep ID is your identity in Fleep and when messaging over email. It contains your user chosen name and the domain @fleep.io. For example a user called Alfred could claim the Fleep ID alfred@fleep.io.

We are launching Fleep ID to make it easier for you to share your contacts with others. As Fleep ID is email compatible you can share it with anyone, whether they want to reach you in Fleep or through email. Also, all the messages from you to email participants will now include your Fleep ID as a sender, previously we auto-generated it from your email address, which wasn’t pretty and could be confusing.

You can choose your Fleep ID in your Account Profile. It can be whatever you like as long it hasn’t been assigned to someone else, is between 6 to 30 characters and contains allowed characters.
Once assigned, your Fleep ID is shown to others in your Contact Profile, your email addresses will continue to work as a way to add you into Fleep conversation. Same with sign in – you can use your Fleep ID or any email attached to your account.

In parallel with implementing Fleep ID we have made several improvements to Fleep email integration. Here are some important ones:

  • Incoming emails are now mapped to Fleep conversation by membership, not by email subject. So if you receive two emails from John with two different subjects we post them into Fleep conversation with John. It’s the same with group emails, emails from Mary to you and Paul are posted into Fleep conversations between Mary, you and Paul. We did this as we saw that mapping emails by Subject created too many unnecessary new conversations. This mapping logic should keep the number of conversations smaller and make it easier to maintain your focus.
  • Subject lines are now in conversations. Conversations where there is at least one email participant we show in the message entry box also Subject field. This is auto-filled with last Subject, but you can change it before posting your reply.
  • Spam reporting is now possible. We are doing our best to filter spam out from incoming emails, but in case something gets through to you there is now the ability to report messages as spam. This hides message from the conversation and lets us to improve our spam filtering system.

With this launch, Fleep email integration moves to a new level. Next time when you are about to press “Compose“ or “New email“ in your email client – I’d encourage you to create a new Fleep conversation instead and see how much easier it is to follow and participate in the conversation.

I hope you like this change and use Fleep even more for communication with those who are not on Fleep yet. Let me know if you have any questions or feedback. Tomorrow, 15th of April, we’re holding a launch webinar. You’re welcome to join if you want to know more about the background on why we launched Fleep ID and where we’re heading.

How to quickly create group chats in Fleep?

How to quickly create group chats in Fleep

Fleep is a messenger for teams and project. To make the most of Fleep, you may want to have different team conversations with your whole team, as well as group conversations with different memberships in Fleep. In this blog post, we will show you how to quickly create group chats in Fleep.

Ask everyone to join using the conversation link

conversation linkEvery conversation in Fleep has its own link. You can find it in the Conversation Settings.

You can ask your team to join any one conversation with the conversation link. For that, you’ll have to…

Step 1: create a conversation (or use a current one you have)
Step 2: enable conversation Sharing in the Conversation Settings
Step 3: copy & share the Conversation link with the people you want to join the conversation.

You can read in more detail about this feature and its other use cases from our previous blogpost.

Create a new conversation and add members

If you have a team, where some people are using Fleep and others are still on email, we have another option for you. This will help you to include people who still on email, too:

  • Step 1: Create a new conversation in Fleep (or use a current one you have)
  • Step 2: Add your colleagues to the conversation with the /add command (works with both Fleep ID’s and email addresses:
    add command

Alternatively, you can also add members into the chat from the Members panel – opens when you click on the icon that looks like a person in the top-right corner of the user interface.

Cloning a conversation

Another useful feature in Fleep that might not be so obvious at first glance is Clone. The Clone feature allows you to easily create a new conversation with the same members as an existing conversation:

  • How to quickly create team chats in FleepStep 1: Open the All conversations view and right-click on the conversation that has the right members in them.
  • Step 2: From the drop-down menu that appears choose Clone.
  • Step 3: Now, in the newly created conversation, change the Topic of the newly created conversation and start chatting. Congrats, you’ve created a new team conversation with just 2 clicks!
  • Alternative: You can get to the same drop-down menu if you right-click on the conversations in your left-pane list.

We hope that these tips and tricks clarified how to quickly create team chats in Fleep. If you have any questions or ideas for new feature requests, don’t hesitate to ping us via Fleep Support or via our social channels (Twitter, Facebook). We’re all ears when it comes to feedback!
