Fleep Conversation History Export is here!


We know you have important conversations in Fleep. This is why we’d like to introduce Fleep Conversation History Export to you.

This is a useful feature if you’d like to have a backup archive of all of your Fleep conversations. The Conversation History includes all your messages from all your conversations. The Conversation History Export does not include the files that have been uploaded in the conversations, but it does include unique links to the files that have been uploaded (note that you have to be logged in to on the browser to be able to access the files).

But it’s not just a useful feature, it’s actually simple, quick and really beautiful. (Hats off to Marko and Helmo from our team for this!)

Here’s how you can export your Fleep conversations’ history:

Exporting your Fleep Conversation History

Step 1: Find the Export button under your Account settings.

Step 2: Click on “Export”.

Step 3: Hold on tight and count to three.

The length of the wait depends on how many conversations and messages you have in Fleep. Feel free to navigate away from the Account settings window – Fleep will send you an email notification on your primary email as soon as your conversation history export is ready.

Step 4: Download the file.

html copyWhen the export has processed, you can download the file from your Account settings. The conversation history is available in two formats – HTML and JSON. Select the link of the preferred file format, and the file download will start automatically.

Step 5: Enjoy.

Open the file and browse your conversation history!

Pinboard improvements

In Fleep, Pinboard is kind of like a digital whiteboard that is shared with all members of the conversation. All members can pin messages, unpin, edit and delete existing pins – just like the whiteboard in a meeting, everyone can step to the whiteboard and write on it, erase messages etc.

The Pinboard in Fleep conversations can be used for many purposes – to pin important information, leave notes, create checklists, bookmark important dates, links or files, and so on. By default, all pinned messages will appear on the pinboard in chronological order, but with the recent feature of pinboard sorting, you now can also reorder the pins!

As with Tasks, you can just grab the pinned messages and reorder them on the pinboard. Like this:

reorder pins

What’s next? We’re working on the possibility to add sections to pins, just like you can with your Tasks. For now, go ahead and try out pinboard sorting – create some pins in your Fleep conversations and reorder them!

If you have any further questions or ideas for new feature requests, don’t hesitate to ping us via Fleep Support or via our social channels (TwitterFacebook).

Tasks help you get stuff done!

There’s no doubt to-do lists can help you get stuff done more effectively, stay on top of your workload and make you feel accomplished. If you use Fleep, you don’t need an external app for your to-do’s – the Tasks feature in Fleep enables you to formulate to-do lists in Fleep conversations!

Tasks fleep

The benefits of having your tasks within Fleep conversations are pretty much endless. First of all, it keeps you on track for a certain project, giving you an overview of what you need to get done and a sense of accomplishment for all the tasks you have ticked off as ‘done’. Additionally, the Fleep Tasks feature holds your team responsible. In group conversations, you can see everyone’s tasks and what they have accomplished. In this way, your whole team is on the same page!

How to create a task in Fleep?

There are two ways in which you can create tasks in Fleep. The first is by starting the message with “/task” and following that with the content of the task:
“/task <message>”.

tasks in fleep

The second way to create a task is to post a message and then convert it into a task - just right-click on the message and select “Create task” in the drop-down menu.

task action fleep

In the iPhone and Android apps, the option to convert a message into a task appears when you long-press on the message:

Fleep mobile tasks

Where can I see all the tasks?

By default every conversation in Fleep has a taskboard, which you can find under the task icon on the right-hand side toolbar. Whenever you create a new task in a conversation, it will appear in the message flow, but it will also be added to your taskboard, where all the members of the conversation can see it. In the mobile app, you can find the taskboard under the menu button in the conversation.

taskboard Fleep

You can also keep an eye on some details regarding tasks – who has created them, when, and who they have been assigned to. You can see this information in the message flow and when you click on a task on the taskboard.

What can I do with the tasks?

The tasks in Fleep have quite a few features. You can edit, assign, check off, untask, delete tasks and much more! All of these features can be found in the task action menu – this will appear on the taskboard when you right-click on the task, or click on the tiny blue down arrow that you can see when you hover you mouse over the task. In mobile apps, the menu appears with a long tap.

  • task actionsEdit - you can always edit the tasks you’ve created, whether it’s correcting a typo, changing the wording, adding some more detail or anything else. You can also edit tasks other members of the conversation have created, and they can edit yours.
  • Pin – this action converts the task into a pinned message.
  • Copy message – copies the content of the task message.
  • Assign - you can assign any task to yourself or to someone else in the conversation. This feature helps everyone understand who’s responsible for executing the task.
  • Show in conversation – this action will take you to the place in the conversation where the task was created. It will help you in case you want to remember the context for the task.
  • Archive - this option will archive the task, so it’s out of your way. You can see all of the archived tasks at the bottom of the taskboard.
  • Add section – helps organize the taskboard (see more about organizing the taskboard below)
  • Untask - when you’ve created a task by accident or if it’s something no longer needs to get done, you can just untask it. The task in the message flow in the conversation will just be converted into a regular message.
  • Delete - sometimes, you just need to delete a task. After confirming the delete action, the task message in the conversation message flow will be deleted as well. (P.S. Delete is not available in the mobile apps.)
  • Check off as “done” - ahhh, the pleasure of ticking things off of a to-do list. Whenever you have completed a task, you can just tick it off, and everyone in the conversation will be able to see that it is done.

How to organize the taskboard?

  • Reorder - you can move the tasks around on the taskboard by dragging and dropping them in the preferred order. You can choose to order them by the assignee, by importance or urgency or whatever else works for you!
  • Sections - in the desktop apps and web browser version of Fleep, you can create sections for the taskboard and move them around freely. At Fleep, our teams often use 3 sections, “Done”, “Work in Progress” and “Not Started”, but you could also create sections such as “Design”, “Development”, “Marketing” for your team conversations, or create personal to-do lists and organize them with sections such as “Home”, “Work”, ‘Personal’. The options are pretty much endless!

A few more tips:

  • The “/taskto @” command – when creating a task with the slash command, you can try using “/taskto” followed by mentioning a conversation member’s Fleep ID with the @ sign. In this way, the task will automatically be assigned to the person mentioned, e.g.: “/taskto @julie.roseplum designs from Joel” created a task “designs from Joel” in the example conversations, and this was automatically assigned to Julie.
  • The /bug command – this is a favorite of all software developers. Using the /bug command instead of /task will create the task with a bug emoticon.

Here’s a a quick video guide of the Fleep Tasks functionality:

What’s next?

Our next step is to develop a “My Taskboard” feature that will allow you to see all tasks assigned to you, from across all conversations, in one place! We have it filed under the “Work in Progress” section for our developers ;)

Your next step would be to go ahead and assign some tasks to yourself in Fleep! Or to your colleagues. If you have any further questions or ideas for new feature requests, don’t hesitate to ping us via Fleep Support ( or on our social media channels (TwitterFacebook).

P.S. Fleep Tasks do not compete with tools like JIRA or Asana that are dedicated to workflow and task management. In fact, Fleep Tasks are a rather lightweight solution to track commitments right there in the conversation where they have been agreed upon. If you need a more in-depth workflow, tracking, deadlines and reporting then you may want to look into dedicated tools. The great thing is that Fleep plays nice with tools like JIRA or Asana – they actually go together really well through integrations. (For example, Teleport uses both Asana and Fleep, while Bigbank uses JIRA and Fleep simultaneously!)

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 For example a user called Alfred could claim the Fleep ID

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.
