Survey your team with Polls

You've always been able to add an image, video, or GIF to your post, but we often get requests for an ability to add a quick poll as well.

Choose the new poll icon when creating your post.

Add a poll

It's easy to add choices, and you can preview the poll before you post.

Your team can then vote when they read your post. Vote totals are displayed in the post.

Voting results

Stay tuned for more updates. We're on a roll, and have much more to come. And as always, let us know how we're doing or what you'd like to see in the app.

Thanks for all your support!

Code blocks

When adding a new post, you'll also see a new icon for inserting a code block.

Code block

Or, in the style of markdown, you can use single back ticks ` in for an inline code snippet, or triple back ticks ``` for a code block.

Code snippet

This is a first step for code blocks, and we'd like to enhance it in the future with syntax highlighting.

Remind everyone at once

You can now remind everyone that hasn't yet read a post about it with a single click, rather than having to remind everyone individually clicking one-by-one.

H2 and highlight formatting

The formatting options have been expanded with secondary headings and inline highlighting.

Find the new stuff faster!

We've worked hard to streamline the reading experience and highlight just the new parts of the posts you've already read.

New comments and replies are now at the top and highlighted in green. Older comments you've already read are collapsed.

In addition, a large post you've already read is collapsed when you revisit it to read new comments. You can always expand it with a single click if you need to.

These are small things, but everyone needs to save time where they can. We hope this helps you do that!

Start new discussions faster

We want to make sure when you've got something to say that it's always quick and easy to just start typing.

We've had the "quick post" at the top for some time now, but it can scroll up and away when you're scrolling down the page to read posts.

Now there's always a button in the top right to start a new discussion, no matter where you might be scrolled.

Able to rotate images you add to Carrot

It's the little details that make a thing.

For the night owls 🦉 who don’t want to strain their eyes…

Dark mode! 👻👻

In your user preferences you’ll see a new option to turn it on or off, or you can choose to have it follow your system preferences automatically.

Dark mode also works in our Carrot apps for mobile and desktop, but it’s farthest along for macOS and iOS. We know there are a few things to polish for Windows and Android, but feel free to let us know if you see something specific we should address first.

Focus on what’s new with “Unread”

Staying in sync with your team just got easier.

We’ve added “Unread” so it’s easier to see new posts and discussions. This turns down the noise and helps you to stay focused on what matters.

Plus, you have handy controls to mute discussions if you don’t want to see them again.
