Plek update: an even better app and other good stuff

We are releasing an updated version of Plek today between 4 and 5 PM. Great news: the app will be more extensive and even faster. Other good stuff: easier text formatting, a time limit for featured messages and personal invitation texts for group invites.

Appier than ever

It gets better and better to chat in the app: after the release, the chat will be faster and you will also be able to upload videos in the app. It will also become possible to search within the group list and to smoothly scroll back in time. And the best news of the day is that the entire app will be faster than ever. Just think of all the extra time you will have for even more chatting!

Please note: due to Apple's approval process it may take a few days before the iPhone app becomes available in the app store.

Format your text with Froala

We have recently been experiencing some problems with text formatting, especially when combined with the @mention. We decided to fix this with a new formatting table called Froala. We are introducing it for the information pages. If it is satisfactory, we will also roll it out for messages. Most users will not notice any difference, because the features remain the same. The technology is better though! Please do let us know if you have any remarks.


Keep featured posts relevant

After the release, you can put a time limit on featured posts. After the expiration of the specified period, the post changes back into a 'normal' post. This will maintain the relevance of featured posts and prevent overload.

Send a personal invitation

And our last new feature for this release: when inviting someone to a group, you will be able to write an invitation text yourself. A personal invitation makes it even more appealing for users to join your group and get started right away! And to also make the group admins happy, we improved the design of the group settings page.
