New GroupCamp for Gmail add-on to replace the Gmail contextual Gadget
Hello! GroupCamp for Gmail add-on replaces GroupCamp Gmail Gadget following Google's decision to shut down Gmail contextual Gadgets for G Suite users. The GroupCamp add-on is available for Gmail and G Suite users.
On January 31st, Google announced in this blog post that Gmail Contextual Gadgets will be shut down from August 1st, 2018 (the Gmail Gadget was only available to G Suite users).
The new application works differently. The app is running on Google's servers (Google App Scripts language) and communicates with GroupCamp via API. This gives a slower response time, but the following benefits are added to users:
- More "Structured" developments with Card forms.
- Harmonization of the look & feel between different software editors. It remains relative but it is real.
- Available for G Suite users and for Gmail users.
- Available on Smartphones from Android 8 (Google says "not yet on iOS").
