What's new in Loomio 2.0

Everything is new! E-ve-ry-thing!

It’s an exciting time for us at Loomio and also for our customers; we’ve listened to your feedback and we’re ready to test Loomio 2.0. The software is not changing at its core (we’re still the good ol’ Loomio), but every aspect of the platform has been revamped and improved.

And I mean everything — even the speed of scrolling. You won’t believe this.

Let me name the big ones here:

Layout changes

I could talk about the new layout until Christmas! Just know that every piece of the layout has been carefully reworked. One key feature we want to share is that now threads have a timeline bar: an easy way to find the information you need.

New text editor

Byebye, old editor! With our new rich text editor, you’ll have all the editing options one click away, a host of emoticons, cool checklists and a simple drag and drop file upload system.

Flexible polls

Now you can choose which of the four decision types you’ll add to your poll. Making a decision where a Block doesn’t make sense? Now it’s your call.

Time poll

Our new time poll has a simpler visual. Plus, when you’re scheduling the vote you can see your teammates’ timezones ordered by the most used.

This is about you

This has always been about you: about making your work and life easier. The Loomio team couldn’t be happier with the thoughtful work that gets done with our help, so please consider this update our way to say thank you and let’s keep keep the good rolling.

You can turn on your Loomio 2.0 beta by clicking here.

This is of course a new product and we’re still looking for feedback. Give it a try, see how it feels and send us a note: what’s great? What’s not?

With 2.0, we feel that we’re crossing a threshold. Our product has levelled up and let me tell you: we haven’t even revealed the best to come, the drumroll… Loomio app! You read it right!

If you want to enable our work, this is a good moment to share our page with people who might benefit from it.

See you over there,
Joriam and the Loomio Team
