We've redesigned the Team Room to be easier to use than ever!

See your whole team

Team members are now arranged in a tile pattern instead of a long list. With four tiles across on most screens, you can probably see your entire team without scrolling down Better presence indicator.

It's even easier than before to see who is online right now, and who has worked in the last 24 hours.

At long last, time zone conversion!

One of the top requests we've heard, especially from Buyers, is to show the local time zone of your team members. We heard you! So whether your teammates are across the country or across the globe, you'll always know what time it is wherever they are, all in the team room.

Filtering and sorting for bigger teams

For larger teams, it can be difficult to sort through all of your members, so we have added new sorting and filtering based on name, role, and when they have last worked, as well as a "quick search" option to find a specific team member quickly.

We hope you find these improvements useful. Please let us know your thoughts in this thread.
