FAQ about new Samepage and legacy Samepage
At Samepage, we're constantly releasing new features and updates to help you get work done. The latest release of team pages marks an inflection point between our new team-centric framework, and the page-centric framework we're calling legacy Samepage. This FAQ answers common questions about new Samepage and the transition from legacy Samepage.
Why are you doing this? Because we're working to make the most complete, user friendly, team collaboration software on the market. This update helps you work better as a team, we know because we use Samepage to run Samepage, and these features help us get more done than ever before.
Are legacy pages going away? No. We do not have any plans at this time to discontinue legacy pages. Keep your legacy pages - they make great search-able archives. We do recommend that you make a habit of creating all new pages in Teams and Team Pages. Before you know it, all of your pages will be tucked in alongside your team conversations.
How do I turn legacy pages into Team Pages? We plan to provide a means of migrating pages from old to new pages in the future (there's time since legacy pages aren't going anywhere). In the meantime, if you want to reference a legacy page from a team page just type "@" and then the page name to add a link to the old page on any team page. Easy-peasy lemon squeezy. Learn more about @mentions.
@Page is cool, can I @mention people? Yes! Just type "@" and start typing the name of a team member.
Why should I use Team Pages? Because team pages are awesome. You can mix up all of the content that used to be separated by components on legacy pages. And you can edit the entire team page, as a team, at the same time.
Where are page permissions in Team Pages? Team Pages eliminate the need for page-level permissions. Permissions are set at the team level. This makes it easier to get work done as a team. You can make teams private, and make sub-teams that have more or less access within a team - learn about team permissions, and private teams.
What about sub-pages? Sub pages are gone in the new team world. Since pages belong to a team, there's no need to sort pages as "sub". Instead you can organize pages into folders, and also sort pages by recent activity. That way you can stay on top of what's new, and keep your pages organized at the team level.
Where are the columns? Don't worry. We're working on that right now. We're working on a bunch of other new features, too.
Wait, there are more features coming? Yes. You can see what's coming down the pipeline on our public roadmap.
