On September 25 we released a new version of Bitrix24 which is now available to all users, paid and free. The changes include a few major things and a bunch of minor interface tweaks that improved user experience.
To start with, your Activity Stream now comes with real time updates, meaning you see likes, comments and other actions just as they happen. Other improvements include smart forwarding, notification options (you can now turn off email notifications), company-wide announcements and creation/access to calendar events directly from the activity stream.
You are sure to enjoy our new document management features, because you can create, edit and collaborate on documents online without MS Office suite installed on your PC. Documents can be edited simultaneously by multiple users.
By popular request, e-mail connectors for MS Exchange, Outlook, iCloud, Gmail, Yahoo! and other mail services have been added to Bitrix24. You can now see when you get new e-mail messages and initiate access to your e-mail account directly from inside your Bitrix24 account.
Bitrix24’s instant messenger and desktop app now come with a free videoconferencing option for groups of up to 4 people and one-to-one screen sharing. (If you are using Mac, please wait for the next Bitrix24 Desktop app update).
Minor product updates included several adaptive navigation features . For example, you can now hide Bitrix24 tools and groups that you don’t often use and re-arrange the order of the main menu items.
If you’ve been a heavy user of Bitrix24’s project management module, you’ll love our new cleaner and lighter PM interface with more filtering options and task counters.
Our new mobile CRM allows you to enter or edit CRM data from your mobile device as well as make calls directly from your smartphone or tablet. Other mobile app improvements include support for multiple Bitrix24 accounts and mobile group chat.
If you use our Android app, you’ll get access to these features on Saturday September 28. The users of Bitrix24 iOS app already have access to all new mobile CRM features. As with online CRM from Bitrix24, our mobile CRM is 100% free for up to 12 users.
To repeat, all of these new features are available to all Bitrix24 users, paid and free, after September 25. Because this update is so feature-rich, we decided to hold a webinar that will demonstrate new features and explain how to use them.
