Use last section as default on new posts

Usually Carrot uses the section you are looking at the default section when you're creating a new post. That makes good sense, but sometimes you are creating a post and not in a section (All posts, Must see, Drafts). It's just a little thing, but now when you create a new post it defaults to the section you last used when creating a post.

Unfurl pasted Carrot links in Slack

During our move out of beta into launch, this capability got broken due to Carrot sub-domain changes.

If you've installed the Carrot Bot into Slack prior to this fix, and you aren't getting your Carrot URLs unfurled, just remove the Carrot Bot from Slack and add it back in.

Higher profile "Must see" badge

This one is quite a bit easier to notice than what we had before. must-see.png

Privacy and Terms of Service

During the frantic scrambling to get launched, we lost our privacy and terms of service links from the footer. They are back. You can rest easy again.

Higher profile "Who's Seen This"

We're really excited with what we're hearing about our "Who's Seen This" feature. It seems to be a real game changer for so many Carrot customers. We decided to give it a little prominence boost with the addition of an icon so that it's not so easy to overlook. WST.png

Option for in-app notifications only 🔕

By default Carrot notifies users of 3 things via email or Slack:

  • New comment on your post
  • You're mentioned in a post
  • You're mentioned in a comment

We think these are quite helpful, but we also want everyone to have complete control over their personal noise level so now you can chose the new in-app only option in your Notification Settings.


"Show less" option to collapse posts

Sometimes, after you "Show more", you may want to "Show less". You clean freaks can thank us later. We prefer Amazon gift cards rather than flowers.

Email domain validation for fancy new TLDs

There are a lot of new top-level domains on the scene, more than the usual .com, .org, .io,, etc.

Carrot is now more accepting of these fancy new domains such as .health, .app, .digital and so on.

Timer on videos ⏲

Let's face it wannabe Scorsese… time is precious. To help you keep your video updates quick and to the point, we now have an easy to see timer running while you record a video update.

Create a new post link in Digest emails

Just a quick reminder in your digest that you probably have something important to share with your team... reminder.png
