We’ve added a new “Welcome to Chapoo” tooltip panel to help new users get up to speed quickly. If you are new to Chapoo, this panel will pop up on your first visit to a project. It will also appear the first time you launch a Chapoo app.
The idea? To make a new user’s experience great. We’ll take them through a profile update, then introduce them to the key functional areas of Chapoo. We’ll deliver an introduction to the Dashboard app, the Structure app, and the Project Tree. Also, we’ll dive down into the use of the actions menu and the unique, graphical document inspector.
The core applications: address book, calendar, the task app and messages all have their own tips panels. And the advanced tools in Chapoo, like the workflows app and the form designer, also use these new tooltip panels to introduce key concepts to new users.
So, you say that you’re an old hat at Chapoo? You can discover these handy tips yourself. Just click on the Help icon in the right upper-corner of your Chapoo screen. Enjoy!
We’ve updated the document details dialog box. The re-design gives you a clearer view of all your document’s details.
You can preview the basics in the Info tab. Want an overview of all revisions, or do you want to revert to a previous version? Check out the Revisions tab.
Finally, the new Communications tab centralizes all annotations, notes, notifications and workflow status messages in one place, chronologically.
The communication history helps users to keep an overview of the communication about a certain document.
It shows all communication (notes, annotations, notifications, workflow comments,… ) about the document in a comprehensive timeline.
A Chapoo administrator can now set access rights for each individual administrator in the Admin access (part of the administrator app). This way an administrator can limit the rights of one or more administrators.
Let’s say you want someone to be in charge of adding new users, but you don’t want that the person can change the structure, access rights , empty the recycle bin, … Then this new feature will come in handy.
The project owner will always have control over the Admin access feature. He/she will be in charge and is able to give other administrators the rights to the Admin access.
The document viewer has been rewritten completely. Open a document in one of your projects and try it yourself!

Link documents to other documents via the add link action. Using this action you can link documents to each other which are all over the project.
A binder is a folder that groups objects (documents, events, messages, threats,…) of different types and different locations on the project. The objects you see in the binder carry links to the actual objects that are stored somewhere else in the project. A binder is often used to group documents that are all over the project.
