Shift 2.4.1- Released December 21, 2017

Bug Fixes

Resolved: Using the Canned Responses feature in Gmail Labs causes Shift to freeze.

  • Prior to the release of 2.4, Shift would freeze when users attempted to use the “Canned Actions” feature in Gmail Labs. This bug has been resolved to allow users to use the “Canned Actions” feature as intended.

Resolved: Users receive a notification alert noise even if it is disabled in Shift.

  • Shift continues to deliver a notification alert noise, even when “Play notification sound” is turned off. This bug has been solved to ensure that turning off the sound option for notifications ensures alerts are delivered silently.

Resolved: Clicking an App, Email, or Calendar notification fails to open the corresponding message/thread in Shift.

  • Clicking an App, Email, or Calendar notification will now load the message, thread or event in the correct App, Inbox, or Calendar window in Shift.

Resolved: Clicking the “Schedule a Meeting” button in Zoom in Shift fails.

  • This bug has been resolved to ensure that when clicked, the “Schedule a Meeting” button opens the Zoom Scheduling Options window.  

Resolved: The Mac keyboard shortcut Command + Option + Left/Right causes Shift to render a blank grey screen.

  • This issue has been fixed so that using the shortcut load the Google Services window in Shift.

Resolved: Users are unable to print PDF files in Shift.

  • This bug has been fixed to allow users to print PDF files directly from within Shift.

Resolved: Selecting the quit option in the “Add Apps” pop-up window fails to exit the window.

  • When adding apps in Shift, users were unable to exit the “Add-Apps” pop-up window. This bug has been fixed so that clicking the “Continue” option dismisses the window.

Resolved: Pressing escape on the “Take a Tour” in-app message does not exit the window.

  • Users were unable to exit the in-app “Take a Tour” message. This bug has been fixed with the release of Shift 2.4 to allow users to exit the message by clicking the “X” button or selecting escape.

Resolved: On Mac, the traffic light buttons to close/minimize/ full screen are not accessible on the ‘Add Account’ page.

  • This bug has been fixed to allow Mac users the option to close/ minimize/ and select full screen while on the ‘Add Account’ page.  

Resolved: The app unread badge covers the app icon when in Compact Mode.

  • The unread app badge now minimizes to the same degree as the accounts in Compact Mode, revealing more of the app icon.  

Resolved: When an error occurs on the Shift payment page, any coupons would be deleted from the coupon box.

  • When adding incorrect payment information on the Shift payment page, the page renders an error and delete any coupon code in the coupon field. This resulted in users paying the full price, even though they have a coupon. This has been fixed to ensure that coupons are not deleted if the payment details are rejected.
