New In-App Invites
Say hello to our new and improved invitations system. This now gives you a very easy way to add members of your team to your HipChat group. Just type in their email address, hit send, then bing bang boom, they get an invite. If your admin is a kill joy, they can disable this feature via the admin panel if they want.
This feature basically works the same as the old join URL scheme, just easier to find. So when the invites go out they still need to go through the sign-up process. If you’re on our annual Plus plan we’ll make sure that you won’t go over your license cap, so no worries there.
With any new feature, we are open to feedback. Let us know in the comment any feedback you have.
You know that thing when you open your laptop and HipChat needs to reconnect, but can’t? Yeah, we fixed that.
We are really focusing on connection stability, so we will be optimizing and improving this over the next few releases to make it as robust as possible.
