Dynamic Fields Now Available in BetterCloud Workflows

BetterCloud | Dynamic Fields makes it possible to harness unique information from across your domain to personalize and scale the actions you take in BetterCloud. When utilizing Dynamic Fields as part of manual actions, this functionality can be used to customize unique results, enrich messaging, and save time.

Limited Preview: Advanced Alerts and Google Drive

BetterCloud | Additional enhancements to Alerts in BetterCloud now make it possible to customize any available system alert, through targeted scopes that are specific to your organization. For Limited Preview customers, BetterCloud is rolling out support for Google Drive in the Files grid in BetterCloud. With this functionality enabled, exposure of files and folders from Google Drive can be added alongside Box, Dropbox, and Slack, making the breadth of your organization’s data visible for the first time.

Expanded Page Hierarchy in the New Google Sites

G Suite | Many sites require a deep page hierarchy, which is why Google is now making it possible to nest five levels of pages in the new Google Sites, up from the two levels previously allowed.

Do More From Your Inbox with Gmail Add-ons

G Suite | Rather than toggling between your inbox and other apps, use add-ons to complete actions right from Gmail.
