Monthly Digest | August 2020
From introducing commenting to implementing an easier way to invite collaborators by link, Voiceflow introduced a host of exciting new changes over the last 30 days.
Here's what happened in August:
Say Hello to Commenting
With the release of our new commenting feature, we made it easier for you, your colleagues, and external stakeholders to communicate and provide feedback directly in-canvas. A streamlined revision process perfect for teams working remotely.
This functionality represents another significant step toward our goal to centralize team workflows so you can spend more time designing experiences and less time searching through feedback e-mails or word docs.

Invite Collaborators by Link, UX updates
Tired of typing out e-mail address? Invite by URL makes inviting teammates, collaborators and stakeholders a breeze. You can access our new invite feature inside the Add Collaborators menu or by clicking the Share button.
• Access and use external libraries within Voiceflow's Code Step
• Rotate images and text using Markup
• Use Shift + Click & Drag to multi-select your Markup elements
• In the Intent/Choice Step Editors, you can now click on any slot within your utterances to open it in the Interaction Model Manager
