Updates to the Shift Privacy Policy

At Shift, we’re committed to upholding the highest standards in privacy. In an effort to comply with the new privacy policy regulations rolled out by Google, we have updated our privacy policy. 

You can read about it here. 

The External Shift Window Closes When the 'Open in Browser' Option is Selected

We’re hard at work making Shift the best solution for managing your workflows. In an effort to make Shift behave more intuitively when the option to view a document in the browser is selected, Shift will automatically close the external window and open the document in the browser. 

Inbox for Gmail is No Longer Accessible in Shift

Now that the day has come, and Google has effectively shut down support for Inbox for Gmail, we have removed quick option to switch from Gmail to Inbox in Shift. 


Bug Fixes


Resolved: Chrome 500 Errors

Shift is built on Chromium, the open source project that powers Chrome. If Shift is operating on an out-of-date version of Chrome, sometimes users will receive a “500 Chrome error” at the top of their screen. In an effort to reduce the annoyance of this, the Shift Team has removed the option to “Stay Logged in Longer” from the General Settings. 

“Stay Logged in Longer” is a setting that extends the cookies on your device, but as a result, renders the 500 errors more often in Shift. 

Resolved: Mailtrack Issues 

The Mailtrack extension in Shift has been updated to allow customers to sign in and use the extension as expected in Shift. 

Resolved: Whatsapp Issue

When users try to start WhatsApp in Shift, they are presented with a message saying
"WhatsApp works with Google Chrome 36+.” The team at Shift has updated Shift to resolve this WhatsApp issue. 

Resolved: Shift Does Not Remember Which Screen It Was Last in When Closing Completely and Re-opening

In order to deliver a more streamlined experience, Shift will now remember the screen(s) that were open prior to being closed. If you have two screens open in Shift, and close and re-open the application, Shift will remember which screens were previously open and reload those screens. 

Resolved: Previous WeChat Messages Aren’t Stored in Shift

Prior to the release, messages sent in WeChat in Shift would not be logged after signing out of Shift and logging back in. Now, all WeChat messages sent via Shift will be logged.  

Resolved: Backspace Fails in FreshChat and FreshSales

Prior to the release, customers were unable to use backspace in FreshChat and FreshSales. This issue has been resolved to allow Shift customers to use backspace as needed in FreshChat and FreshSales. 

Resolved: Custom URL Added for ActiveCollab

Now, Shift users will be able to log in to their custom workspaces in ActiveCollab. 
 

Resolved: Selecting Mail or Calendar in the Application Menu in Outlook opens in a New Window

Resolved: Attachments in Apps Won’t Open

Resolved: Shift is using the wrong URL for Android Messenger        

The link for Android Messenger has been updated in Shift. 

Resolved: Shift Signature Added to Email Signature

If a user has the Shift signature enabled and goes into Gmail settings, Shift will add 'Sent with Shift' to the customer signature. This causes 'Sent with Shift' to be present even if they disable the setting inside Shift.
