Providing context on the content of your topics helps your teammates understand and use the information within them more effectively. Topics now support rich descriptions, including mentions, text formatting, lists, code, and more!
To edit a topic's description, click the … menu in the corner and choose Edit topic. In the description field, hit / within to see the full list of formatting options!
User profiles now also support rich formatting. Your team can use the same rich text options that are available for topic descriptions to personalize their profile descriptions and make them more helpful for other teammates.
Topic bar refresh 🆕
We've also updated the topic bar! Now, the subtopics button shows the number of posts across the entire topic, and the topic membership is reflected by profile icons of members. Click on any of the profile icons to see the full list of members.
Here's what else we've been working on 👇
We added preview support for PDF file attachments in posts — just click the … menu within the attachment and choose Open in new window. ****
We also added a tipsheet for advanced search shortcuts. You can find that by clicking the ? menu in the bottom right-hand corner and choosing Search shortcuts.
