We’re building in public. Here’s what has changed recently.
Welcome to the first release of 2019! We're kicking the year off right with a big new feature – private collections. It's now possible to create a hidden collection that is only visible to team members that you invite, a much requested addition.
This release introduces rich document embeds. Pasting share links from supported services will now show an interactive embed inside the document. The following services are support at this time:
We added a rich text area to the top of collections so you can add more details than just a name. This is great for when a collection represents an area of your company and makes it easy to add links to other company resources.

We've been working on a Zapier integration. If you're interested in hooking Outline events up to other aspects of your teams workflow, give it a look! React to documents being created or automatically create documents in specific collections from external events. Find more information on the Zapier integation here.
This update fixes an important issue where Slack integrations would be associated with the first user in the database. On the hosted version of Outline all of these integrations ended up associated with an inactive test user and have since been purged from the db.
If you connected Slack since June 3rd 2018 you'll need to do so again.

We added the ability to sign in to Outline with a Google account, a much requested feature for non-Slack users!
Note: If you already sign in with Slack you should continue to do so as the two accounts won't be automatically merged. If you'd like to enable both Google and Slack auth for your team please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
