You can now upgrade any folder in Almanac into a Workflow with status based automations, or keep them off for more flexible, one-off Reviews on individual documents.
New folders in your workspace now start as a simple container, with the ability to add metadata via custom properties. Normal folders enable you to send multiple Feedback or Approval Requests per doc without needing to adhere to a status-based process.
If you'd like to add structured rails to your process or project, turn on Workflows from the Folder Settings menu to create statuses and attach automations to them. Workflows can be turned off or on at anytime, in case you change your mind.
Board views in Folders have been redesigned as the designated process and project management space in Almanac. New folders created as a Board will have Workflows turned on by default, so you can hit the ground running on any project.
Make your Almanac folders a single source of truth for every team, project, and process—even if some of the work lives in other places. From your folder's left rail, you can now:
When you copy folders in Almanac, we'll now transfer over your original folder's views and workflows, allowing you to easily re-use established project management processes.
Additionally, when you copy a doc from inside a folder, you can now choose to create it as a linked version or an unlinked copy:
Finally, copied docs will carry over their original properties, even when you move docs across workspaces.
To give you more room to write, edit, and review docs, we've changed the right rail to an overlay with a vertically aligned menu.
Docs load with the rail menu collapsed; you can now open any tab as a tray by clicking on its icon. Once you expand the overlay menu, it stays open for easy access to formatting and collaboration. Collapse it for distraction-free reading and writing by clicking on the open menu item, or directly outside of the overlay.
Creature of habit like us? You can convert the overlay menu to a traditional sidebar by clicking the button at the top right of your doc (it's next to "Share").
