The team at Convo has been pretty busy pushing out new features so you can get more done and today is happy to bring you the latest with these three great helpers.
Keep your eyes on the stars, and your feet in Convo
There is nothing quite like being hooked into the life stream of your company and seeing what your team is sharing in real-time. Since the early days of Convo, we have focused on making sure that you’re on top of what is going on, as it happens. In the flurry of activity in your organization’s News Feed you do sometimes come across an important post that you need to pin or bookmark to get to later, or to identify to-dos, or to keep track of, or for frequent reference.
Today we fix that for you with Starred posts. Just open the menu on the right of any post on your News Feed and select “Star this post”.
You can get to your starred posts by clicking “Starred” in the left panel and you can also find messages with stars by using the following query in your search box – in:starred.
Path of least resistance to chat
You can now start a new chat from inside the chat window. That means no more switching back to the main Convo app to find an online contact to ping. Just click the “New Chat” button at the top left of your chat window and select someone to talk to. You can also now resize the people and group list in your chat window.
World’s best shortcut key, now on Convo

Today you can do that on Convo too! Use Cmd + Shift + T on your Mac and Ctrl + Shift + T on Windows to restore the last closed tab. I am personally the most excited about this little feature this week and found a video that captures some of my enthusiasm:
