Plek update: Plek is not joining you on your holidays
We are releasing an updated version of Plek today between 4 and 5 PM. New: the holiday snooze. Use it to temporarily block Plek notifications. We also have some good news about our app, and we added extra options for forms. Plus: we've built a way for you to check for any birthdays you may have missed.
We obviously want as many people as possible to actively use Plek. But we also want employees to get their well-deserved rest, so that they can be a 100% productive afterwards. That's why we hereby present the holiday snooze: out of office, no Plek notifications. Every user can turn the holiday snooze on or off in their settings.
Make sure to convince your colleagues of the fact that business conversations do not belong on WhatsApp - they belong on a platform for business communication. A platform that simply leaves you alone when you're having a day off. Need more tips to help your colleagues make the switch from WhatsApp to Plek? Read our CEO Rik's five tips (Dutch only).
Enjoy your holiday!
The Plek app
After the release you will be able to create groups in the app. Additionally, we added a bubble in the timeline to indicate any new posts. You can also use this bubble to immediately scroll all the way up.
Many of our clients asked us to work on the way tables are displayed in the app, for example within information pages and posts. In order to display tables as well as possible on small smartphone screens, after the release we will display a button to open tables in full screen.
If you don't have the app yet, download it today for Android or iPhone!
Please note: due to Apple's approval process it may take a few days before the iPhone app becomes available in the app store.
Fill out forms more than once, with attachments
Many forms need to be filled out more than once by the same person (for example expense forms or monthly inspection reports). For that reason, forms on Plek can be filled out several times - by default - after the release. If the creator of a form wants to allow only one submission per person, they can tick the box for 'Do not allow multiple submissions'.
In addition, the creator of a form will be able to choose a new type of question after the release: the file upload. Use it to ask for an answer in the form of an attachment (a picture of, for example, a receipt or an inspected object). The attachment can be uploaded on both desktop and mobile.
Birthdays just keep getting better on Plek, but of course you can still accidentally miss out on one. That's why we added a recent birthdays filter to 'Birthdays' within the agenda. Just click on a missed birthday and wish your colleague a happy belated birthday!
