The release of Workspace 365 v3.31.0 will be deployed on 15-07-2021 between 22:00 PM and 0:00 AM Central European Time. ​The following will be implemented when this version goes live:



  • From now on, all announcements are displayed in the brand-new Announcement Centre. The centre brings a new and refreshing user interface, with several new improvements, such as displaying the author and category in the announcement, and the possibility to quickly navigate to other announcements.
  • With this release, we introduce birthday activities. Whenever someone has a birthday, we notify people with a birthday activity in the Activity Feed. From the activity, you can send your birthday wishes. All received birthday wishes are also displayed in the feed.
  • It’s now possible to set tags for custom activities created via the Activity Feed API. This helps to organise the activities, as they are collected in the same stack.
  • Get more insight into your activities with the improved the design of the activity cards. They now show the activity category in the card.
