New in February: Reactions, faster doc load, a duplicate page button, and more.
Reactions for email.gif
We love a button. And we find deep satisfaction knowing that each click brings collaboration into our docs. With this deceptively small update, we simplified one of our most popular features so that you can add interactive reactions to tables or alongside text on any page—no formulas necessary. Simplify task assignments with a ✋. Or add a ✅ to the end of a writeup to see who’s done their pre-read.
Load Times.gif
Docs are faster than ever.

Your page and doc title now appear in the browser tab. We hope this helps you navigate your web of productivity!
We squashed a bunch of bugs, including a few pests that were interfering with visuals for cards, buttons, sub-tables, and attachments.

Programming with PowerPoint? Sounds like a fun Saturday night to us!
